96 Mercury Cougar 4.6V8 Acceleration and New Camera Audio Test

As requested by Fatguywithakatana, a quick blast down the road in our 96 Mercury Cougar XR7. The car is equipped with the 4.6 SOHC V8, four-speed automatic, and a limited slip rear end. This was a test to find out if my new camera could handle the volume of driving down the road. It seems to have faired much better than my old camera. Thanks for watching and commenting, we appreciate it. hot rod rat rod muscle car show car

Mercury Cougar XR7 | Television Commercial | 1994
Mercury Cougar XR7 | Television Commercial | 1994 The Mercury Cougar is a nameplate applied to a diverse series of automobiles sold by Mercury from 1967 to 1997, and again from 1999 to 2002. While most examples were produced as two-door coupes, at various times throughout its production life, the Cougar was also sold as a convertible, four-door sedan, station wagon, and hatchback. During its production life, as was common practice within the Mercury division, the Cougar shared much of its underpinnings with a Ford counterpart. At the time of its introduction, it was based upon the Ford Mustang. As the Mustang was downsized and redesigned in 1974, the Cougar became based upon the intermediate Mercury Montego (itself based upon the Ford Torino), becoming the replacement for the Montego in 1977. As the Cougar XR7 became the equivalent of the Ford Thunderbird in 1977, the Thunderbird would serve as the Ford counterpart of the Cougar for two decades. After its initial discontinuation, the Cougar emerged as a replacement for the Ford Probe sports coupe, based on the Ford Contour "world car"; as such, it was sold outside of North America as the Ford Cougar. For many years, the Cougar was important to the image of the Mercury division; advertising often identified its dealers as being "at the sign of the cat".[1] In the early 1970s as part of advertising for the Cougar and Mercury, female models held big cats on leashes.[2] In production for 34 years, the Cougar nameplate is second only to the Grand Marquis in its longevity in the Mercury model line. The car was assembled at the Dearborn Assembly Plant—one of six plants within the Ford River Rouge Complex—in Dearborn, Michigan, from 1967 to 1973, at the San Jose Assembly Plant in Milpitas, California from 1968 into early 1969, at the Lorain Assembly Plant in Lorain, Ohio, from 1974 to 1997, and at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan from 1999 to 2002.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #59: 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E 427
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com/store - This week, we're bringing you an often overlooked muscle car, the 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E. These were sporty but comfortable, and the GT-E bought you a 7-liter V8 to make things interesting. Most were the smooth 428 V8, but some were ordered with the far less subtle 427 side oiler... like the one in this video. The 427 was rated at 390 HP and has a great rumble, but the car is refined enough to drive and enjoy every day. The Brothers Collection is home to several rare Mercury cats, this is one of the favorites!
