Maggie's First Drive in Thirty Years
My 1967 Mercury Cougar "Maggie the Merc." being driven for the first time since she was parked thirty years ago. Once abandoned and left for dead, in this video she shows that she is not ready to die just yet, but is ready to be on the road with her young new owner (me) and cruise once again the asphalt she has not felt in years.

Here are the specs for this engine: Edelbrock dual plane aluminum intake manifold -- For run in only, switching to Weiand X-celerator 2V that has been converted to FI for later.
