400 + mile vacation trip in the 69 Cougar XR7. I passed the keys off to my girlfriends daughter for her first ever driving lesson,Skull Valley,AZ. Largest lot I could find was in the graveyard parking lot...lol !!! We wanted her to always remember this day.





Skull Valley is very old Indian country. Town got it's name from the fact one tribe killed off another and stacked their heads in piles around the valley. White man came and found the sun bleached skulls .
Drove the Cougar down 10 miles of old dirt road to get to our cabin.




The Cougar ran great and got 17 mpg ! She cleaned up just fine when we got home so it was well worth taking this car on our vacation and making some great memories. We will do it again.


Thanks,
Matt & Tracy
