Cougars at Barrett-Jackson 2013: Featuring KTL's 1970 SCJ Eliminator
We went back to Scottsdale this January to witness the sale of Joe Valenti's 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator, with a 428 Super Cobra Jet drivetrain and the Drag Pak option. This rare car was meticulously concours restored over the course of 5 years by the renowned Cougar restoration shop KTL Restorations ( http://www.ktlrestorations.com ) in VA. A factor that made this auction even more interesting was the presence of another 1970 Eliminator, in the same Competition Blue color, and also with a 428 Cobra Jet engine (not Super) and also restored by a reputable hot rod shop. This car was not restored to the same "concours" level that Joe's car was, but it was still beautifully restored, and we expected to see it bring close to six figures. What we saw unfold that weekend in January was an interesting and sobering experience. These two cars, which would seem nearly identical to the untrained bystander, sold for vastly different prices. There is a lot to be said for the day and time that a car gets sold, as well as the quality of the restoration. But we were still very surprised by the results. This video puts you in the middle of the action to experience Barrett-Jackson with us. Enjoy! Need parts for your 67-73 Cougar?

Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.

The V8 Interceptor [S4 Ep.11-1]
One of the most popular cars of the Muscle car era... the Mercury Cougar... has been one of the most overlooked cars in recent decades. Today on GEARZ all of that changes as Stacey rolls in a solid '67 Cougar... dubs it the "V8 Interceptor"... and begins to completely change the front suspension to get rid of the stock shock towers and turn this little old lady's car into a corner-carving, road-gripping beast. But wait!... you can't cut out the shock towers can you!?! Yes you can!... and Stacey goes in-depth on not only how to do it, but also the installation of a complete TCI independent front suspension. If you own or want to own a classic Mustang, Cougar, Fairlane, or other 60's Ford, and have always wished you could get rid of those stock shock towers to get more room in the engine compartment, this is the show for you.

1968 Mercury Cougar - Cool Cars, Hot Cars, Fast Cars
Cougar... The Man's Car! That's how Mercury was advertising it's top of the line Cougar in the mid-sixties. While sharing commonality with the Mustang, the Cougar has maintained its own aura and identity. Mercury's slogan was, "See your dealer...At the Sign of the Cat". This cougar is highly customized/modified. Another example of individuality expressed through car crafting. http://www.coolcarsvideo.com 1968 Mercury Cougar - 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. Everybody loves cool cars. Even a person with no particular interest in cars experiences a thrill when seated behind the wheel of a great automobile. The car is one of man's most prolific mechanical inventions and the engineer's desire to build the ultimate automobile is overshadowed only by the layman's desire to own the coolest car. Of course, everyone has different ideas about what makes a car particularly cool. For some it may simply be lots of cup holders or comfortable seats. But those aren't the kind of things you'll be seeing here. This site is about the most important coolness factors: Performance and Styling. Auto enthusiasts share a common interest, but they each have different ideals about performance and styling. We like to make videos that show off cool cars and celebrate the individuality of their owners. Bob's is the only remaining original Big Boy restaurant.
