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.
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.

1968 Mercury Cougar XR7 Coupe GT 6.5 litre (390 Big Block)
Have had this project for some time now, and don't have the time it deserves to be put into it. This is a very very rare car. Most of the Cougars you may find have the 289 ci V8. This car has the 390 big block -The power is unbelievable.
Back in the day, Ford marketed the Mustang "for the man starting out", the Mercury Cougar was marketed as for "the man who was on his way". (The Thunderbird was marketed for "the man who had arrived") Car is unbelievably powerful, pulls rubber in all 3 gears. I have had the car for a long time, started it several times every year. But it is time to let it go to a good home. This is a numbers matching authentic S code 390 Cougar XR7.
These are unique and beautiful cars.

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!

COUGAR TEST DRIVE
badassness. this is my 67 cougar xr7. it has a rebuilt 289 .30 over. pretty hot mild cam. 500cfm edelbrock carb. aluminum ford racing intake. rebuilt c4 automatic transmission. turboExhaust made by summit. hedman headers. its running a little rich in this video my step dad says. this is my first car and so far all i learned from cars is from building this beast so i have no clue what running rich sounds like haha. but i know this things kicks pretty hard. havent got a chance to really open her up yet because i still need to break in the motor. theres less than 50 miles on the rebuilt motor and transmission. all the front suspension is done and steering parts are on their way and will be done. found a crack in the shock tower i will need to get welded before alignment but thats not too big of a problem. more videos to come.
