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.

Don Rush Featurette on Gearz with Stacey David





West Coast Custom Cougars [S4 Ep.13-2]
Today on GEARZ, Stacey rolls the V8 Interceptor/ Cougar back into the shop and begins upgrading the rear end and rear suspension to handle all the massive power that has been stuffed under the hood. The parts are flyin' as in goes a custom 3-link torque arm suspension, a 9" Ford rear end, and a tubular sub-frame to prevent the car from flexing. If you have a classic Mustang or Cougar, you're gonna want to see this! Then Stacey shows you where to get parts for your Mustang or Cougar project by paying a visit to a special salvage yard that specializes only in... you guessed it... Classic Cougars! If you've ever wondered where to get those special parts... now you know. After that we take a trip to Michigan Tech to check out their amazing testing facilities and put some actual products to the test. It's all here... and it's all GEARZ!





How To Replace 1967 Cougar Steeing Wheel Emblem & Trim
The 1967 Mercury Cougar has a unique steering wheel with a black "Cougar" emblem in the center. Originals are often damaged from the elements over the years, but luckily we now have nice reproduction emblems to replace them. Same with the plastic chrome trim ring - they are often faded, but a nice reproduction is available. In this video, Don shows how to remove the old emblem and trim ring and install new ones on your original 1967 steering wheel center / horn pad. For more info about the parts we mentioned in this video, check out the steering wheel section on our website here: http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com/stwhpa.html Check out our facebook page too! http://www.facebook.com/WestCoastClassicCougar

Installing Opera Lights on any 67-68 Cougar
If you own a standard 1967 or 1968 Mercury Cougar, you may have noticed (with some envy) that the upscale XR-7's of those years have extra interior lighting on the C-pillars. These are referred to as rear courtesy lights, or opera lights. We have just reproduced the chrome / clear lenses for these, which add an extra touch of class and functionality to your interior. They are especially useful because Cougars didn't come with an interior dome light, so nighttime visibility is somewhat limited on the interior of a standard Cougar. The good news is - even if your car never came with these lights from the factory, your car already has the wiring for them. All you have to do is cut the tape holding the single wire to the harness and feed it through the appropriate hole (see video). So all you will need is a pair of used housings and a pair of our new lenses. Links to parts below. Used housings: New lenses: http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com/l4e9.html OR we also have used original lenses, which are cheaper but not as nice.. Used lenses - Grade A: http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com/cpilllens.html Used lenses - Grade B: http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com/cpillb.html Thanks for watching / reading!

Plastic Chrome Restoration for Classic Cougars
Using Cougar dash bezels as an example, Don discusses different methods of "re-plating" the simulated chrome on plastic parts. With costly and fragile vacuum plating and electroplating being the only viable options in the past, we are proud to introduce a revolutionary new paint process that is much more durable, costs less than older methods, and looks fantastic. We are offering restoration services for these dash pieces, as discussed in this video, and soon hope to offer the same service for other plastic "chrome" parts, such as door panel trim and more.

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.

Door Hinge Rebuild - 1969 Cougar
In this video, we show how to rebuild your classic's door hinges with new pins and bushings, with useful tips and tricks throughout the process. In this case, we decided to do it with the door and fender still on the car. Normally, it's a better idea to remove the door, leave the hinges on the car, and rebuild them in place... but Don's car has power windows, so removing the door is much more difficult with the wiring. Check out our door hinge parts at http://cougparts.com





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.

2014 CCOA Western Regionals - Oakley, CA
This show was the biggest gathering of classic Cougars in recent memory, with over 80 cars showing up. There were 4 GT-E's, 5 XR7-G's, and a whole lot of other beautiful cats. The venue, provided by Rob Crowder, was stunning. The weather was sunny. The cruise was fun. The event planning by Gavin Schlessinger was top notch. With the collaborative efforts of the Cougar Club Of America and the Mercury Stray Cats (of Northern CA) this became arguably one of the best Cougar shows of all time. Andrew was on the scene with cameras rolling to capture the stunning cars and great people who were there. Event photos can be seen here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/westcoastclassiccougar/sets/72157645416046266 / Cougar Club of America: http://www.cougarclub.org/ Mercury Stray Cats: http://www.classiccougar.com/





2013 Gathering of the Classic Cougar Faithful at Bill Basore's House in AZ - "Live" Footage
Saturday, 1/19/13 - For those who couldn't be here, this is a quick, sloppy, informal video to give you a taste of what it's like to party at Bill Basore's house, and to put some faces to the names you may be familiar with from the Classic Cougar Community Forums ( http://www.classiccougarcommunity.com ) and elsewhere in Cougar legend. Just walking around with the camera talking to people and looking at cars briefly. Nothing fancy!





'67 Cougar GT in Toulouse, France
Another Cougar in France?? Yep, this time a real 390 GT '67 that has been in France since new. Anthony is the current owner, and hopes to return the car to its original Burgundy color someday. For now, it's bright and yellow and loud, and our photo / video guy Andrew had a blast on this visit. Many thanks to Anthony and his family for their hospitality!
