It happens sometimes. LOL No cougar section to post this to so thought it would work here. The main cougar person I remember isn't on much anymore. At least not in the garage or galaxie dept.
I had to read up on the Buried Belvedere on this same site. The comment about it will run again made me laugh. It might but it would be an almost totally new engine to make it happen. Unless of course you have a "magic trailer" like Cook.
If I were to own a Cougar it would have to be FE powered. The 427 would be the ultimate, of course. Here's a couple Pics from last years show in Vallejo. Apparently I didn't get a picture of the whole car. It was very plain-jane looking, possibly original paint and all. Perfect in my opinion.
What would be bitchin' (IMO) would be to take a 67/68 XR-7 and custom make to a 1968 (no GT-E badging) 427/390HP (this 427 was seriously detuned from the previous year 427MR) and install 1968 1/2 COUGAR 428CJ RAM-AIR.
Why the W-CODE 427 only went to MERC still perplexes me.
what is the proper name of the green paint on my 332 fe engine; does anyone out there know? Some sites say turquoise, some say Edsel green, carribean turquoise and on and on. Trying to repaint it and having a fit. Help!!
Does anyone remember the slicks that were sold in the 70's or 80's that had the humorous text on the side walls?
Torque Twisten, Tire Smoken, Axle Bustin etc.
If I could get a picture, that would make a great avatar.
Has anyone had success with products that are designed to seal power steering leaks?
My Galaxie has a heck of a leak. I haven't been under the car yet to look at where the leak is coming from. I'm just doing some info gathering right now.
