2004 Corvette Z06 - Cool Cars, Hot Cars, Fast Cars
2004 Corvette Z06 Just your run-o-the-mill badass Z06 roadster. The C5 Corvette was literally built differently than all GM products leading up to 1997. 0.29 drag in the wind tunnel. D.I.C. which could read diagnostic codes and display them for the driver without a computer. Constructing the frame rails with a process called Hydroforming. Replacing 14 parts used in the structural integrity of the C4 helping reducing the C5's weight by 68 pounds. Hydroforming also alleviated the tall frame rails for the C5 making it less of a chore to enter and exit then the C4. You had to carefully step over the frame so you wouldn't scrape the interior carpet with your shoes or worse stiletto heals. I thought it was unique and missed it in the C5. Third-generation LS1 V8 was overhauled to an all-aluminum block, utilizing ignition coils replacing the distributor of all previous small-block engines and new cylinder firing order. Rated at 345 bhp and 350 lbs. ft. With 28 mpg highway mileage it avoided the gas guzzler tax. Another trend set by Corvette was Run Flats Tires became standard equipment in 1997. The most important of all refinements was the transmission being moved to the rear of the car right between the wheels aptly named trans-axle. Of course the significance of this was Corvette now had a more even distribution weight to the tune of 51% in front 48% in back. This may not seem like a big deal now but in 1997 as a gearhead or an American auto enthusiast you knew what they meant for the C5...Poising GM to enter and compete in the Super Car market. My personal favorite accommodation was the introduction of the Fixed Roof Coupe for 1999. There was a rumor back in the day that Chevy was entertaining the idea of offering a striped down model of the Corvette allegedly nicknaming it The Poor Man's Corvette. This was how the Fixed Roof Coupe would fit into the future stable of Corvettes. To be honest this wasn't such a bad idea as far as my circle of fiends were concerned, a no frills V8 Muscle Car would have been a welcomed turnaround for the American automotive enthusiast...It may have even made a Corvette buyer out of them. But, it didn't happen. What did happen was in 2001 Chevrolet used the Fix Roof Coupe body style too debut the most impressive Vehicle GM ever envisioned...2004 Corvette Z06 with the heart stopping LS6 hammering out 385 bhp and 385 lb·ft. The FE4 suspension calibrated toward high speed operation was developed for Z06 and not available on other Corvette models. 2004 Corvette Z06 boasted 405 horsepower. However, dynamometer tests have shown that GM underrated the LS6 by 20 horsepower giving it a total of 425 asphalt splitting horsepower and a missile screaming 412 foot pounds of torque. 1.90 second from 0 to 60 mph. This 3,074 pound badass can shear through the quarter mile in 11.97 second, bone stock at 118.80 mph. http://www.coolcarsvideo.com 2004 Corvette Z06 - Cool Cars, Hot Cars, Fast Cars http://www.cool-cars-video.com cool cars, hot cars, fast cars, dream cars, Cool Cars Video offers a feast for the eyes as well as insight from car enthusiasts about owning these cool street machines.

The Green Hornet's Black Beauty - Cool Cars, Hot Cars, Fast Cars
1966 Chrysler Imperial transformed into The Green Hornet's Black Beauty - The Green Hornet's Black Beauty - a unique 1966 Chrysler Crown Imperial, customized for the short lived show. There are two authentic cars known to exist. "Number one" is at the Peterson Automotive Museum. I don't think this is the "number two" car, but a replica. For whatever reason, George Barris is promoting this car (he can be seen right beside the car at the start of the video).

If you like hard to find full size SS cars, this one's for you! Though the Chevy Impala was one of the most popular full size cars during the late 50s to mid 60s, the Super Sport option, offered from 1967 to 1969, was never given much fanfare by Chevrolet. The result was very few orders.

LED Taillights on a '68 Mercury Cougar
This video is to show how much easier the sequential taillights work on a '68 Mercury Cougar, when LED lights are installed. As you can see, the left side works faster, is 'crisper', even when the taillights are on. The one's on the right are the plain, incandescent bulbs. Notice how much slower, and longer it takes, especially when the taillights are on. I had the battery on a charger while I was taking this. The LED lights I used are relatively inexpensive. I purchased them from: www.superbrightleds.com, and they are the 1157-R24 (the wide beam), and they are $7.49 each. They last 10,000 hours, and use a LOT less energy than incandescent bulbs. They do make brighter, more expensive LED's, but these are pretty close, if not brighter than regular incandescents.





1972 Mercury Cougar XR7 Convertible
http://www.motoexotica.com/inventory/6008/1972_Mercury__Cougar.htm • Beautiful Blue & White Convertible! • Incredible Two Tone Interior! • 351ci V8! • Automatic Transmission! Mercury Cougar is the name applied to a diverse series of automobiles sold by the Mercury division of Ford Motor Company from 1967 to 2002. As was common with Mercury vehicles, the Cougar shared basic platforms with Ford models. Originally, this was the Mustang, later the Thunderbird, and the last a version of the Contour. The Cougar was important to Mercury's image for many years, and advertising often identified its dealers as being "at the sign of the cat." Female models holding big cats on leashes were used on Cougar ads in the early 1970s. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer the handsome 1972 Mercury Cougar XR7 Convertible. The '72 Cougar XR-7 you see today is said to be a 93,931 original mile car that is finished in the original color combination of Bright Blue Metallic with White/Blue interior. The paint looks very good and shows no major spots of imperfections, just a few minor spots of touch up. The power white convertible top is equally as nice with no staining, rips or tears to the vinyl. The rear window is glass. Inside, the White/ Blue vinyl interior is the original for the car and in great condition. The carpet appears to have been replaced recently and is in great condition. The dash, door panels, arm rest and wood grain trim are all equally as nice with on major wear showing. Under the hood, the 351 cubic inch V8 runs great and starts with a turn of the key. The motor is said to be the original for the car and still retains its original 2 barrel carburetor, power steering, power disc brakes and air conditioning. The air conditioning is currently inoperable but it appears to only be in need of a charge. The engine is nicely detailed and very original. No damage to be found. The motor is connected to the three speed automatic transmission which shifts smoothly and performs with no problems. Under the car is very solid with no rot that we have seen. It appears to be all original metal under this original southern car. The VIN is 2F94H517485 and the mileage currently shows 93,931, which is believed to be original for the car. It is being sold on a clean and clear title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!





Vinyl Top Installation - '68 Cougar
In this video, we watch as a professional installs a vinyl top on a 1968 Mercury Cougar. After observing the process, we think this is a job that the average do-it-yourself-er can handle. It does require a certain amount of finesse, but not as much as a headliner installation requires (see our other video on that subject). This premium quality vinyl top can be found on our website here: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/store/p/13820-Vinyl-Top-Concours-Correct -BLACK-Repro-1967-1968-Mercury-Cougar.html Economy vinyl tops also available: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/67-vinyl-top.html Like us on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/WestCoastClassicCougar Subscribe to our channel for more Cougar videos!

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!

The Story Of Cougar 1: The First Mercury Cougar
A while back, we sat down with Jim Pinkerton, the owner of the very first production Mercury Cougar (1967 model year), a.k.a. Cougar 1. We hit the "record" button on our cameras and he let loose with an epic tale of how the car was first sold in Canada, its subsequent life there, and how it eventually got into his hands - an intriguing story! He also goes over some of the unique features of the car, and some of the restoration techniques used. It's a truly beautiful factory show car with more attention to detail than the 'average' Cougar. Special thanks to Jim Pinkerton for his time, and for providing most of the images you see in this video from his own collection of Cougar memorabilia.
