PRO CAT 1968 Cougar XR7 w/TR-6

Celebrating my 30th year with my first car. I\'ve only owned the 1973 Triumph TR-6 in the background 10 years.

You don't see that very often. Good for you. Looking good. When i was 23 i bought my first 68 Cougar XR-7 with 6 miles on it. 36 yrs later it now has 77k and looks and runs as good as it did in 68.
It was $3370. Lot of $$$$ back then. I was making $3.25 an Hr. Payments were $88
a month for 36 months.

Great story "merc390". I bought mine in Feb 1974 for $1200, it was originally Baby Blue w/Black vinyl top. I had my eye on a 1970 Chevelle LS-6 (cowl induction, 454...) My grandfather wouldn't let me buy it, said it was to much car and I'd no doubt just get into trouble with it. He "talked" me into the Cougar and I have forever been greatful and I know he must be lookin' down with a smile. Mike
