Crushing Cars at West Coast Classic Cougar
CONTEST HAS ENDED
We ran a contest to see who could guess how much the pile of 40 cars, the junk-filled truck, and the old forklift shown in this video total in either tonnage or dollar value (at $260/ton). The closest guess, without going over the actual amount, won a $100 gift certificate in our online store ( http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com ).
-- Contest ended May 1, 2011 --
Also note that West Coast Classic Cougar no longer has parts for 1974-79 Cougars.

1968 Mercury Cougar LED Taillight Comparison.wmv
This is the final chapter in my quest to find the ultimate LED lights for my 1968 Mercury Cougar. The ones that I'm happy with are part number: 1157-R18-T. They are $18.00 ea., but well worth it, as you can see from the video. Even outside, these bulbs really are bright! I almost considered getting their 45 LED light tower bulb (for $25.00 ea), but now, I'm glad I didn't! The company to get these from, is: www.superbrightleds.com.
cars to no cars
After reading the comments, I decided an explanation is needed. These cars were on an abandoned farm 750 miles away. County threatened to have property condemned and charge us to remove. A (former) family member hired a lawyer to get control of property from remaining heirs. Our only solution was hire a lawyer ourselves and to sell as scrap and split the money. And as for selling on internet, when this started, Craig's list was not the thing it is today. I did have cars on line for 2 years, not a single call. Where were all you "car value experts"? Sad to see some of them go, especially the Ford pickups. All cars were rotted out underneath. None of them ran and few had titles. Half of the experts identified the cars incorrectly. No convertibles, ElCominos, 55 Chevys, or 442s. Studebaker pickup was a Minnesota rust bucket. The 59 Chevy was a 4 door Biscayne with a blown up 6 cyl. Sat since 1972 in that spot. When the 59 Ford car was lifted, it almost broke in half from rust to the frame and body. No tractors ran, and had many parts missing.
1967 Cougar XR7 #10
I went to the land of Cougar's to buy some parts for my 67. Close to my home is a place that has all Cougar parts new and used. Don and his staff at West Coast Classic Cougar were very friendly and helpful. I had a wonderful Spring afternoon walking amongst the donor Cougars.

badassness. this is my 67 cougar xr7. it has a rebuilt 289 .30 over. pretty hot mild cam. 500cfm edelbrock carb. aluminum ford racing intake. rebuilt c4 automatic transmission. turboExhaust made by summit. hedman headers. its running a little rich in this video my step dad says. this is my first car and so far all i learned from cars is from building this beast so i have no clue what running rich sounds like haha. but i know this things kicks pretty hard. havent got a chance to really open her up yet because i still need to break in the motor. theres less than 50 miles on the rebuilt motor and transmission. all the front suspension is done and steering parts are on their way and will be done. found a crack in the shock tower i will need to get welded before alignment but thats not too big of a problem. more videos to come.
1968 Cougar 427 GT-E at Barrett-Jackson, Scottsdale 2011
This is the story of Brian Aust and his 1968 Mercury Cougar 427 GT-E. Over the course of about 5 years, he undertook a painstaking restoration to bring the car to the highest level he could, with a little help from his friends (and lots of advice from folks on http://www.mercurycougar.net ). On January 22, 2011, he drove it onto the auction block at Barrett-Jackson, stepped out, and watched it sell for... well, you'll just have to watch to find out!

Portland Swap Meet - April Fools 2011
Since the famous Portland Swap meet fell around April 1st this year, we had to take advantage of the opportunity. Don (owner of West Coast Classic Cougar) disguised himself and got some undercover, candid feedback from customers and friends from all over the swap meet. Not only was it a good source of survey data, but the swap meet itself was a lot of fun, and we found lots of Cougar parts!
