This video describes how to use our grille straightening kit for 67-68 Cougars. Since grille alignment is such a problem on these cars, we've developed the necessary parts, tools and methodology to correct this issue.

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.

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 next year!

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.
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.
