    Exterior styling
    Front/rear lights
    XR7 dash ( especially the toggle switches )
    Foot-operated windshield wiper fluid switch
    The door is the perfect height and distance from the driver's seat to comfortably place arm on door sill while driving ( almost feels claustrophopic when reqiured to keep arm inside the car! )
    Hidden fuel-filler door
    The slash's in front of the wheel well on XR7s
    Ease of working on the engine

    There's more of course, but these were on the top of my mind.

    The body lines
    The look of the hood from the driver seat
    The XR-7 dash and overhead console
    The door height (arm rest)
    The power
    The handling
    The comfort

    Have I left anything out?

    The long hood, short trunk, belt body line and of course the hidden headlights and sequential tail lights. I think even Bill Mitchell would have liked to claim that design. Its a classic. Mark

    Talking

    I like the 'Untamed Elegance', coupled with the pop open headlights and long hood. Just a well balanced vintage coupe.
    For several years now I have been admiring Garey's (XR7GT) 1967 Cougar.
    My current project 1968 XR7 is the car that I want as a semi daily driver.
    My only change from stock will be a console that I can use as an armrest. I am going to attempt to make a console similar to the XR7-G console for use with my T-5 5 speed.

    You might think I'm goofy, but I like the pedal for moving the wiper blades whenever I want.......I wish they had that on cars today instead of the variable speed ones. After that, it would be the hidden headlights and the front look of the car........just looks tough! when your facing straight on.

    amen to everything above, I was trying to come up with something new as I read the posts, and you guys covered it all. Of course, could always discuss the sound of the engine and the turning heads as you drive by....but I think that goes for every cat.

    I think the way it sits is another great feature, the styling makes it look like it is crouched and getting ready to leap forward.

    Things I hate? That damn hydraulic steering valve and when my headlight doors ease shut at night.

    There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
