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.
96 Mercury Cougar XR7 4.6V8, Hot Rod Red, Quick Blast to Check Camera Audio
Testing out the mic on the camera to see if it can capture the sound of a much quieter car. The hot rods I've been trying to film lately have been too loud. It seems the Cougar proved to be too loud as well, sounded a bit like a space shuttle launch. I'm going to have to devise a better way to capture the sound. Not an all-out tire smoking launch, but still a mildly entertaining look out the windshield.
Broken Ball Joint While Driving - Bit of a Scary Ride
You definitely don't want to do what i did and neglect the maintenance on your car. The ball joint had been going bad on my daily driver for a while and it finally decided to snap while I was driving it yesterday. It made for a bit of a scary ride, but it could have been much worse. The Cougar has 164,xxx miles on it now, so I really don't think it's worth fixing at this point. Hope you find it interesing, thanks for watching!

2000 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4.6 V8 55xxx Miles
I thought I'd show you the new daily driver that we picked up to replace the Cougar. I'm still going to repair the Cougar, but I didn't want to count on it as daily transportation. This 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis is in really excellent shape for it's age. It's powered by the 4.6 SOHC V8 and only has about 55xxx actual miles. I know it's not the most interesting car in the world, but it should be a comfortable and reliable one. Thanks for watching and commenting, I appreciate it!

1996 Cougar XR7 - PI Build/Swap w/ Magnaflow Exhaust System
This is a video of the start up of my built up ported PI engine, the Exhaust system, and a short drive off. This build took about a year in total, gathering parts, rebuilding the heads and putting it all together. I still need to get it Dynotuned but that will be for later on. It runs on 94 octane as I want to avoid pinging until i get a tune done. It was fun to see it all come together. Was a lot of work but I never gave up on the project. The Audio level is different in some clips as I used a different camera for them.

Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
