Bonneville SSEi vs '67 Cougar
My brother, dad and I were all heading to a local cruise in and by chance my dad and I lined up at the light. Dad never looked over at me so I wasn't sure, but usually he messes around for fun. My brother has the camera driving the '93 Bonneville SSE behind me. So the light turns green and I launched. I got to around 60-70mph and let off because I thought dad didn't get on it. Of course as soon as I let off I realized he was a'comin' quickly. But by then it would have only created problems had I got back on it since the road narrows to one lane and we would have got there at the same time, so I had to let him go. Turns out he was just fooling with me, letting me get out and then reeling me back in, however had I stayed on it, I would have still been ahead. So obviously in his eyes he won, I think I had him for where we were, but the Cougar is without a doubt much quicker, not denying that.

Electric Hideaway Headlight Actuator Conversion: 1967-1968 Mercury Cougar
In this video, we show how to replace your early Cougar's vacuum-operated hideaway headlight system with a simpler, more reliable electric conversion kit. This kit includes two remanufactured Ford Probe headlight motors, a custom wiring harness, and custom bracketry and hardware for this specific application, making installation simple. To view the kit, click here: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/store/p/13676-Electric-Headlight-Door-Co nversion-Kit-with-Motors-New-1967-1968-Mercury-Cougar.html Some reasons to go this route instead of keeping your vacuum system: - Easier to keep your grille straight. The vacuum system puts constant pressure on the grille. - Cheaper as a whole. To replace your entire vacuum system is significantly more expensive. - faster and more even opening & closing. No more slow opening / closing one at a time. - Can operate without the engine running. - Perfect solution for those with high performance engines with low vacuum. - Etc.
