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!

Freddie on the Dyno
My '68 Mercury Cougar get his first Dyno run. This is on the old Torker 289 intake, long headers of questionable parentage, 284H Crane cam and jetting as it came, I've rebuilt the 700cfm Holley DP carb and there's a 2.5" Magnaflow system on it. On, and the brand new T5 gearbox. :)

This is our father son build of our 68 mercury cougar. started out as a rusty ol shell. with 3.5 frame rails that we did on a harsh budget. the car was home build in a 1.5 car garage and not for 15 grand...its a real budget car enjoy
1968 Cougar dual quad!
1968 Mercury Cougar. 289, .030 over, .010 over and under on the rods and mains. Edelbrock Performer RPM cam, (.496/.520). Dual quad Air gap intake. T5 trans, 3.50 traction lock gears in the rear. 2 1/2 inch duals, "H" pipe, with Magnaflow mufflers.
Lots of fun to drive around town, but I think a set of 3.73's would really make it a lot better........
1968 Mercury Cougar idling Magnaflow 284H12 cam
My Cougar, warming up on a just above freezing February morning. With 284H12 Crane cam and new 2.5" Magnaflow system on long tub headers, he now sounds pretty aggressive. The old system was a bit restrictive. now with K&N filter and Exhaust, he's drawing more air through the Holley DP, so he running fast. Good job there's a rolling road Dyno about 20 foot away from this parking space, and a jet/pump kit in my toolbox!
