Hi, my name is James and I’m a Cougar-holic. My story, well, I was raised just outside the San Francisco bay area in a small town called Pleasanton, California. At least it was a small town when I lived there. The Good Guys show would start a few years after I left. My father was a sort of car guy. He loved cars, but just never found a car to get passionate about. At one point or another he’s had an Austin Healey, a ’65 GTO ‘vert, a ’67 XKE, and a ’67 GTX. He actually was about to buy a 300SL Gull wing but decided on buying the Austin brand new instead. Unfortunately, I got older and the need for family cars interfered. He was still out there every weekend washing, waxing, and keeping ahead of the maintenance on everything he owned.
