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!

Sloppy Steering Syndrome - Problems & Solutions
If your steering feels loose and vague on your classic Cougar (or Mustang, or other old Ford / Lincoln / Mercury), you need to watch this video. During our annual open house event, we invited several Cougar owners to put their car on the lift and let us wiggle things around to diagnose loose steering. Some unrestored cars needed attention in several areas, whereas others were suffering from one or two factors that were overlooked during restoration. Armed with the knowledge you'll gain from this video, there's no reason your steering can't be made tighter and more precise. All the applicable parts mentioned in this video can be found on our website in these two categories: Steering parts: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/steering.html Suspension parts: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/suspension.html

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.





(SOLD) 1969 Mercury Cougar XR-7 4-speed
This car has been sold! Link to eBay auction: http://www.ebay.com/itm/171503105137?ssPageName=STRK:MESCX:IT&_trksid=p3984 .m1557.l2649 A Cougar that's survived 45+ years this well is unheard of, especially for a 4-speed car. A recent repaint makes it really shine, but the original interior and untouched engine bay, trunk and underside lend credence to the amazing condition of this car. Slide into the soft original leather driver's seat, lock the tilt-away steering wheel in place, palm the 4-speed shifter and depress the clutch... and know you're driving the best.





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 To look up the parts mentioned in this video, visit http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com Subscribe to our channel to keep up with our latest uploads!

Zoe - West Coast Classic Cougar Request
My daughter Zoe is trying to receive a 1967 Mercury Cougar GT 4 Speed Car from West Coast Classi Cougars in Oregon. This is her Video submission. Please West Coast Classic Cougar help my dauger with her dream of owning a Cougar. Myself I still own my 67 Mercury Cougar that I built in high school (zoe is going to the same school). My wife still has her 1968 Mercury Cougar xr7 Gt which was her first car. We are all Members of the Mercury StrayCat's Cougar Club. My wife and myself were a couple of the founding members. I think Zoe would be a good fit to restore the 1967 Mercury Cougar Gt and keep it for years to come. One thing I am not seeing often is younger people restoring the old cars. If young kids do not keep up the hobby who will?? Lord Lucas and his Leadfoot Ladies will. Please let West Coast Classic Cougars know that you also want to see a young girl (who by the way does already drive a manual transmission) restore and keep another Mercury Cougar Alive !!!





557,000 Miles and Counting (She's 90; Her Car's 45; Both Are Still On The Road)
At 90 years old, this Depression-era great-grandmother from Orlando, Fla., has a lesson for all of us about surviving in a tough economy. Shes still driving her 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente. Price back then: $3,289. Thats less than the $4,500 the government gives to trash a car today in the cash for clunkers program. She jokes her car has been oh-so-faithful. She's better than three husbands," Veitch said. Shes never lied to me, shes never cheated on me, and I can always depend on her. But with nearly 600,000 miles on the odometer, the real story is in those lifetime warranties. She paid Midas $42.23 for a lifetime muffler. Such a deal! Midas has replaced her muffler seven times. Ditto with JCPenney and her battery: Shes had 17 batteries replaced. Even though JCPenney no longer has an automotive department, they still make arrangements to honor her contract. Then theres Sears and the shock absorbers. Sears has replaced her shocks three times. Three cheers for Rachel, who has collected for all Americans who bought extended warranties but for some loophole reason, never collected. As I sat with Rachel in her living room, teapot on a doily, I felt I could be with anyones grandmother in America. But when we hopped behind the wheel of her baby, the car she nicknamed Chariot so long ago, her bright eyes and tight grip confirmed Rachel, like her car, is an American original. She picked up her 1970s-era CB radio, flipped over to channel 19 and asked, Is anyone out there? Static. No answer. Without missing a beat, she joked, I guess theyre all dead. If there was ever a person who loves to kid around, loves cars, and is as quick as a rabbit start in a Mercury with a 260 V8, its Rachel. Shes pushed her car up to 120 miles per hour. The speedometer quits at 120, so I could have been going faster, she said. Rachel, a retired nurse, enjoys showing off her car to auto enthusiasts. Her goal (yes, folks in their 90s still have goals) is to one day go toe-to-toe with another funny, car-loving American: Jay Leno. As they used to say in the old radio days: Stay tuned.
