Show us your Cat as it sits right now

From dusty barn find to daily driver, it seems our cars are never really done. This is the place to share your progress on your project car. We will celebrate your victories and commiserate over your tragedies. But most of all this is a great place to learn!

Last night several of us from the Lone Star Cougar Club cruised to Keller's Drive in for burgers and beer.

Long term hibernation, battery out, cover on. Sadly it will stay like this until mid-April, when all traces of New Hampshire road salt are washed away.

I did install my freshly restored Rim Blow steering wheel on Saturday - it felt good returning the interior to totally original spec...

Withdrawl :shock: symptoms - I absolutely LOVE driving this car!

So jealous of you folks with good weather year round....

Really slick '73 you've got there, especially that it's a Q code. I've grown very fond of the 71-73 Cats, especially convertibles. They are really great drivers and rarely seen at the cruise nights.

Just made a trade for my cat this past weekend. Great trade as far as I am concerned. Looking to hang onto this for awhile. Maybe my trading days are over?
