Stickerer | GTi badge restoration
I do vinyl cutting and stickers, and this was a short video from a job I
did restoring a customer's GTi badges for his Mk1 Golf.

73 Cougar getting exercise
I've pulled the interior and vinyl top. I'll be replacing the sheetmetal.
Everything mechanical is perfect, so it still needs its weekly exercise.

The most recent owner of this beautiful Cougar had several Cougars over the
years. When we met him he owned this one and a Cougar Eliminator that he
drag races. He bought this one at a local car show about 12 years ago. The
car was restored just before he bought it.

Ready for a different kind of pony car? Take a close look at this pristine
1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator. Fresh out of a comprehensive restoration,
this cat has and aggressive demeanor and plenty of power to back it up.
Restored to factory specifications, the body panels are straight in true in
every way. A coat of Ford's code N Pastel Blue covers the body, accented by
the black body-length stripes courtesy of the Eliminator package. While the
color may look white, there is a subtle blue tint that is guaranteed to
make this Mercury stand out in the crowd. Panel fitment is also far
superior to anything that left Ford's Dearborn plant in 1970.
Other pieces of the Eliminator package include a front chin spoiler,
blacked-out grilled, hood scoop, an air foil wing and discrete "Eliminator"
decals. The glass appears to be original as does the stainless trim around
it but both are in excellent condition overall. With its race-friendly
look, this is very clearly no common Cougar.
Under the hood, a familiar 290hp Boss 302 V8 provides more than enough
motivation to push this cat around town. From the properly decaled single
snorkel air cleaner to the date-code correct block, everything about the
powerplant looks as it did when it left the factory. The engine fires
immediately, idles well and has a menacing snarl to warn other drivers
exactly what is beside.
Beneath the car, a nicely detailed undercarriage consists of a factory
chassis with factory-correct overspray gracing the rock solid floor fans.
In the center, a Hurst-equipped Toploader 4-speed takes care of gear
selection while a nodular Ford nine-inch differential with 3.91 gears puts
the power the road. Steering is manual but braking is power assisted with
discs in the front and drums out back. The chassis meets the road through
Goodyear Polyglas tires wrapped around steel wheels topped with dog-dish
hubcaps and chrome beauty rings.
Between the doors, a Medium Blue interior is simple, comfortable and
functional. The hi-back bucket seats are wrapped in Comfortweave vinyl and
face a factory dashboard that houses the original instrumentation plus
climate controls and an AM/FM stereo. With the exception of the aluminum
Hurst shift handle, there are no frills to be found here. Behind the rear
seat, the trunk features a correct mat, jack and spare tire.
Documentation for this Cougar is strong with an original build sheet,
dealer invoice and several records that spell out the car's full history.
There is also a Marti Report that covers everything down to production
In this form, it's easy to imagine the Cougar as less of a sibling and more
of a rival to the Mustang.
With the Boss 302 and slick shifting Toploader, this cat offers all the fun
in a unique shell. Call, click or visit http://rkmotorscharlotte.com for
more information on this amazing Mercury.

It Runs Beautifully. Draws a lot of attention, wherever we go. Most people
believe it reminds them of a Cutlass or Cuda from the back/side. No rips
in the top. The body is super-solid. Only 1 small ding (Maybe 2-3"
wide-which I took a pic of). I had ½ pint of the paint mixed this week.
ALL THE CHROME IS EXCELLENT!! All glass is excellent. Everything works as
it should, except the clock, (I haven't looked to see why yet). Runs
smooth, fingertip steering. Everything is tight. Needs nothing! If I keep
it, I would buy another parade boot-this one is the original and in
good-fair condition. It wouldn't take much to be a perfect show car. If
you are looking for a solid, original, 1970's convertible in great shape,
you will not be disappointed. Look below at the rarity of this vehicle,
there were only 1,717 made. As the 1971 commercial said "It's where wild
meets elegance". ..haha, the original ad is on youtube. We are asking below
"low retail" for NADA, this vehicle is definitely closer to "high retail"

"The 1971-1973 Mercury Cougar was the last of the Cougar pony cars. They
shared an enlarged new body/chassis design with the third-generation Ford
Mustangs, but rode a
five-inch longer wheelbase.
Still, the 1971-73s are worth collector consideration, especially XR-7
hardtops -and the super-rare ragtops!

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!
WCCC Open House / Cruise / BBQ / Great Oregon Steam-Up 2011
Every year in August we have an open house at West Coast Classic Cougar.
We are based just outside of Salem, Oregon, and have a wrecking yard full
of 67-73 Cougars, and a warehouse full of new and used Cougar parts.
It's a two-day event that usually takes place on a Friday and Saturday. On
Friday, we have our open house and a small car show. Then in the evening,
we cruise over to Silverton for a barbecue at our friend Brian's place in
the middle of open farmland. Finally, on Saturday, we attend the Great
Oregon Steam-Up at Antique Powerland, located close by our shop in Brooks.
This year we had a reserved space for Cougars. There is an endless amount
of cool antique machinery to see at this show.
If this event sounds like fun to you, hop in your Cougar and we'll see you
