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!

Rusty Roof Replacement - 1968 Cougar
If you have an old car that came with a vinyl top, chances are that you
have some rust issues in the roof. This was the case with Andrew's car - a
1968 Mercury Cougar that his grandparents bought brand new in '68. In this
video, Andrew takes matters into his own hands to replace his rusted roof
skin with a solid donor roof from another car. He is by no means a
restoration expert, just an amateur trying to save some money and save his
