Souther Oregon Cougars

#1

Post by kooglesk » 01 May 2016, 23:28

Went to the Eagle Point car show yesterday and saw a couple really nice Cats, I was hoping to get my car ready for the show but I just couldn't make it happen, and by ready I just mean running well enough to get there.

I did get a chance to see a really nice aqua? colored 68 and a real nice 69 Eliminator both great cars. I was excited to see 2 cougars in a small show.

I also saw a Purple 68 driving In Medford area yesterday. I have seen the purple cat before driving but have never caught up to it.

Anyways it is great to see multiple Cougars around the area. It is inspiring.

Any of you S.O guys on the on here?

I'm in Cave Junction and would have gone if I had known about the car show. Is there some site that lists classic car shows? Sounds like you enjoyed the show and it is great that there were two Cougars. The classic car show in Grants Pass last year for Back To The Fifties only had one '68 Cougar, and I'm sure it was a much larger show.

I heard about the show by seeing a flyer at a local restaurant. I don't know of any website, but that would be great if there is .

Aw, sorry I missed it!

I do manage to get to the saturday Cars & Coffee in Wilsonville fairly often. I've seen a few Cougars there before, but this week I was the only one.

Did you happen to get any pics or info on the '69 Eliminator?

sorry I didn't get a picture or any info on the eliminator. It did have a custom license plate but can't remember exactly what it was but I believe it was something to the effect of elmntr. real clean car, also had the hood shut, which is probably why i didn't get a pict.

Also got a flier for an upcoming event in june 4th in Grants Pass more info here http://southernoregonmisfits.weebly.com

Wow, I just checked the map... when you say "Southern Oregon" you really mean "so far south that you can see California!" LOL!

That area almost became the State of Jefferson.
