67-68 Cougar Buying Guide: What To Look For
In this video, Don does a detailed inspection on a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7
to show some of the things you should look for when buying one of these
classic cars. Some of the insight here can potentially save you hundreds,
even thousands, when you go to negotiate with a seller. Also, it will help
those of you trying to sell, to more accurately advertise the strengths and
weaknesses of your car.
We've also done a similar video with a 1970 Cougar convertible, so you may
want to check that out too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fizb2vo68vA

1909 Cadillac First Start in 79 Years
This 1909 Cadillac was stripped down into a speed car, raced and then
parked in 1934. I was acquired in the early 1960's for restoration. The
restoration was put on hold for many years and then re-started a few years
ago. After multple checks of the ignition and timing we finally achieved
the first start on July 28, 2012. There is still more to do to tune the
engine and sort it out for driving later this year.
The spray on the first try happened when we left the primer cups open. It
runs better with them closed.
And the owner did make it a bit easier by adding an electric starter to the

1968 Cougar 427 GT-E at Barrett-Jackson, Scottsdale 2011
This is the story of Brian Aust and his 1968 Mercury Cougar 427 GT-E. Over
the course of about 5 years, he undertook a painstaking restoration to
bring the car to the highest level he could, with a little help from his
friends (and lots of advice from folks on http://www.mercurycougar.net ).
On January 22, 2011, he drove it onto the auction block at Barrett-Jackson,
stepped out, and watched it sell for... well, you'll just have to watch to

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

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

Из грязи в князи - Ford Torino 1971
Из грязи в князи - Ford Torino 1971
В 1971 году Ford производит изменение своего
модельного ряда — упраздняются названия
Fairlane и Falcon. Новая линейка Torino теперь
состояла из 14 моделей. Базовой моделью
был Torino в вариациях 2-дверный хардтоп,
4-дверный седан и универсал. Следующим
шёл Torino 500, доступный в качестве
2-дверного хардтопа и SportsRoof, 4-дверного
седана и универсала. На вершине
находился Torino Brougham в разновидностях 2и
4-дверный хардтоп, а Torino Squire являлся
люксовой версией Brougham с кузовом
универсал. Torino GT предлагалась с кузовами
SportsRoof и кабриолет, а Torino Cobra — только
Внешние изменения в 1971 году были
незначительны и в основном коснулись
иного оформления радиаторной решётки за
исключением Cobra, продолжавшей
использовать решётки 1970 года. На Torino 500,
Brougham, универсал Squire и GT могли также
ставиться «скрытые» фары Hideaway.
О фильме: Барри знает, как создавать
масл-кары (мускулистые машины). Но
сколько они будут стоить? Он собирается
выяснить. В каждом эпизоде, Барри с его
командой механиков и семьей, имеют
только четыре недели на работу по
американских авто, для последующей их
продажи на самых известных
автоаукционов северной Америки, а
окупятся ли расходы и останется ли Барри
в прибыли,смотрите сами!
American Muscle Car - The Mercury Cougar
THE AMERICAN MUSCLECAR series brings you the third season, profiling some
of the most influential cars in automotive history:
1978 Mercury Grand Marquis Video 1 Owner 6.6L 400 V8 Classic Youngtimer Lincoln Town Car Ford Sedan
78 Mercury Grand Marquis 312,000 Miles Near Mint 1 Owner 6.6L 400 Big Block
Classic Youngtimer http://www.1ownercarguy.com This is a very cool car.
Usually I like cars with really low miles but this car is sol cool because
it has 312,000 original miles on it and runs like a newer car. This is only
a 1 Owner Car and yes the miles are actual. The previous owner drove the
car back and fourth from Canada to California. You would never guess the
miles by looking at the car. The factory baby blue paint is in great shape
and has a very nice shine to it. The factory white vogue top looks great on
the car and is in about as good of shape as you will find. The body is
straight as can be and the paint is original. It has the 6.6L 400 engine
that fires right up and runs great. It has been rebuilt along with many
other things on the car. I talked to the mechanics that worked on the car
and they remembered the guy and how good he took care of his car and really
liked it. You would have to really like a car to put that many miles on it.
The car feels and handles like a newer car and just floats down the road.
The interior is in mint condition along with the rest of the car. Only the
drivers seat shows minimal wear. It looks like he was the only one that
made the trips because none of the other seats look like they hardly ever
got sat in. Everything about this car is just clean as can be. You won't
find another car like this.
