    Charlie - Great vintage pictures, thanks for sharing those. Very cool car. Hope it's alive out there somewhere. I was thinking about putting your story in the next WCCC newsletter, which reaches thousands of Cougar people around the world. There's always a slight chance someone out there knows something about it, but either way it makes an interesting story, being such a rare car. Would that be okay with you?

    I gotta tell you Charly looking at the pictures of you smoking the tires, the car parked against a trash can, I think your parents were not even close to a four speed brother. They were sure trying to slow you down.LOL

    I got a note from a member in my email, I follow my posts so I will know if someone post and I am not on the site. I got a not a week or so back with a picture of a '76 Toyota Celica which I think was someones "love". It did look a lot like the car that I was given as a replacement for my beloved Cougar. It was very similar to the one I had just a different color and a hatch-back. The one I had was Bright Red and was a regular coupe with a trunk. I don't see the post here, maybe it got posted to another forum or I just missed it. Still looking and hoping. There were at least 4 Cougars that crossed the auction block at the Mecum auction in Kissimmee Florida. Not many of the '60's vintage, I saw two.

    I had a Lime Frost GT-E with a W code 427. My car moved to Tulsa after 1975 or so. It was painted white and interior changed to black. It has been for sale by a guy named Billips, at least I think so. Not your car but white 1968 fast Cougar.

    I couldn't resist putting that one in there. Back then it was just a car... Can't imagine doing it now with my current Cougar : )

    Charlie, post some pictures of your current Cougar so people can see how nice it is. I stopped by Dave's the day he had it on the trailer getting ready to bring it back to you. It really is a beautiful car! Also, if you aren't yet a member at http://classiccougarcommunity.com, come on over. Your Cougar would be a candidate for Ride of The Month honors, I'm sure.
