ADRL Drag Racing - Norwalk, OH - 9 28 2012
ADRL 1/8 mile drag racing - Summit Motorsports Park - Norwalk, OH
9/28/2012. Couldn't plug my ears and record at the same time on the Pro
Extreme cars. They're LOUD! 1/8 mile times around 4 seconds and speeds
at 200 mph. Still would have preferred old-style gassers. I was probably
one of the older guys in this young crowd. The sport may be passing me by.
67-68 Cougar Buying Guide: What To Look For
In this video, Don does a detailed inspection on a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7
to show some of the things you should look for when buying one of these
classic cars. Some of the insight here can potentially save you hundreds,
even thousands, when you go to negotiate with a seller. Also, it will help
those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.
We've also done a similar video with a 1970 Cougar convertible, so you may
want to check that out too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fizb2vo68vA

Vortech'd '88 Turbocoupe Ep.2
1988 Ford Thunderbird turbocoupe 5.0
swap / 5 speed swap. Me running it trying to figure out why it's breaking
up around 5k
Vortech 'A' trim Supercharger, 65mm
throttle body, ported cobra intake, Edelbrock performer aluminum heads, BBK
longtubes to mandrel bent Exhaust.
FMS 'E' cam, 1.72 roller rockers, Crane ignition, Autozone shortblock.
Hand built instrument cluster, Supercharger plumbing, hand fabbed Exhaust. GT Mustang springs and polished wheels.
3.55 gears and long wheelbase makes for a great long distance cruiser.
This started in 2007 when a neighbor stopped over with a beat up black '87
cougar 5.0 with a rod knock. Asked what he wanted the car to be, was told
'basic nice cruiser'. Recommended a Autozone Mustang spec'd reman'd 302, add a set
of 1.72 rollers, BBK shorty headers and a speed density Mustang processor with 19lb
That lasted about a month, then the 'I want more' and 'what's next' nagging
started. Ended up swapping in the powdercoated Cobra intake and 65mm
throttle body. Then in went a Cobra mass air conversion with 24lb
injectors, then n went the heads and 'E' cam, then somewhere in there we
spent a day in the junk yard grabbing the clutch pedal out of another
T-coupe and we swapped in a '93 WC spec T5 and Hurst shifter. Somewhere in
there as well the whole Exhaust was
changed out to longtubes and hand fabbed mandrel bent 2.5" pipes. About a
week after the 5 speed swap in the Cougar he found this '88 Tcoupe fr $500
less brakes. One ice cube relay and it had brakes so two weeks later the
Cougar was scrapped and the T-coupe was built. Add gauges, change out the
dash and interior for better and here it sits. There's a fully loaded rust
free blue '88 T-coupe waiting to get all this stuff put in it now. It
