Classic Cougar Prowl (2011)
There's nothing like a classic car show that features your favorite car
almost exclusively. The Cascade Cougar Club put on a great show this year
at the XXX Root Beer stand in Issaquah, WA. Lots of great people and
beautiful cars. In this video, we check out the show and interview some
Cougar owners to get their thoughts.

Cougar Buying Guide Ep.3 - 1968 XR-7 390 "Barn Find"
In this video, Don goes over a 1968 Mercury Cougar XR-7 in brutal detail,
looking at originality, searching for rust, inspecting the interior and
engine bay, and more. This car exhibits a lot of pros and cons that you
might run across when looking at buying a classic Cougar yourself. We felt
that the "pros" pretty much speak for themselves; it's a very attractive
car, great color combination, good options, good condition, and a big block
390 that runs great. With that in mind, we spent most of the video picking
on all the little negatives that you might not have noticed otherwise.
This car is currently for sale on eBay:

SOLD 1950 Mercury Coupe Hot Rod for sale by Corvette Mike Anaheim California 92807
1950 Mercury Custom Coupe Candy Apple Red w/White interior.
If you get a bunch of gearheads in a room together and they get to talking
about what the ultimate hot rod is, inevitably there will be three
constants on the list; the '32 Ford Hi Boy Roadster, the '32 Ford 3 window
coupe and the subject of this ad; the iconic '50 Merc coupe.
The quintessential lead sled; the Merc defined the full bodied hot rod in
the '50's. Its flowing lines were a vast canvas on which customizers could
practice what was a fairly new art form back in the late '40's, early 50's.
Chopped, channeled, frenched and decked. That's what you did if you wanted
your Merc to stand out in a crowd!
And the sled being offered here does that in spades!
Designed to emulate customs made famous by legends like Sam and George
Barris, Gene Winfield and many others, this rolling piece of art has all of
the elements mentioned above, in addition to being wrapped in stunning
Candy Apple Red paint, white tuck and roll interior with a multi-carb'd
Flathead under the hood! Held in a vast private collection consisting of
only the finest custom automobiles, the work was done by Steve's Auto
Restorations using elements of Chevrolet, Pontiac, Cadillac, Olds & Kaiser.
The hardtop body has no "B" pillar, the headlights have been "Frenched",
hood corners have been rounded and of course it wouldn't be a '50's custom
without Appleton spots!
The interior features white "Tuck and Roll", laminated plastic knobs and a
'57 Olds steering wheel, power steering, a hidden audio system and solenoid
operated doors, windows and trunk The business end features a full dress
Motorhead City 1950 Flathead engine featuring an Offenhauser intake and
heads and three Stromberg '97 carbs. House of Color supplied the Candy
Apple over Gold exterior and "Von Dutch" style pinstriping. Wides whites
with full Cadillac wheel covers completes the deal!
It's an investment grade custom that spells upside in it's fortunate new
owners future. It was good enough for James Dean! Stk #N/A

Rat Rod Custom 1950 Mercury Rescue! - Roadkill Episode 21
It's always a good idea to buy a car off the Internet sight-unseen, right?
That's what a friend-of-a-friend of Roadkill did with the kustom Merc—and
maybe he made an even worse decision when he allowed Freiburger and
Finnegan to wrench on the thing and deliver it to him. This deal was set up
by a Roadkill fan, Jim Norman of Norman Vinyards in Paso Robles,
California. The road trip involves the '69 El Camino from Episode 4, The
Dog from Episodes 4 and 17, lots of burnouts with the guys from Hot Rod
Ranch - http://www.hotrodranchcustoms.com - and plenty of fun with Alex
Gambino of Gambino Kustoms - http://www.facebook.com/gambino.kustoms
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #59: 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E 427
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com/store - This week, we're bringing you an
often overlooked muscle car, the 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E. These were
sporty but comfortable, and the GT-E bought you a 7-liter V8 to make things
interesting. Most were the smooth 428 V8, but some were ordered with the
far less subtle 427 side oiler... like the one in this video. The 427 was
rated at 390 HP and has a great rumble, but the car is refined enough to
drive and enjoy every day. The Brothers Collection is home to several
rare Mercury cats, this is one of the favorites!
