Ok, here it is. If you have a Cougar and have been down the track post to the forum and I will add you in. 1/4 time takes precedence over 1/8 mi time in list.
1. You must be an active member of MercuryCougar.net with a minimum of 50 posts.

2. Car must have run the time within the last few years (my discretion)

Alpha- and BetaCat's dragstrip runs were made loooong before modern timing (runs made 25+ yrs ago), so all I can offer is:

AlphaCat, '73 XR-7 351C-4V 3850 lbs, 14.42 @ 95.14 Torker intake, OC heads, stock dish pistons, Crane Fireball cam, headers, 3.70 gears
BetaCat '73 XR-7 351C-4V 3800 lbs, 14.41 @ 94.46 Cast iron intake, cast iron exhaust manifolds, quench 4V heads, Crane Econopower 260 cam, stock duals, 3.70 gears.

Someday :rolleyes: I'll get them back together and on the track... :icon16:

Trying to figure out how to edit an old post. Sent Logan an email but no reply yet. Kind of frustrating to have a sticky you can't edit. :)

Talking about the one in Spokane, WA around airway heights? Maybe I'll see you there! Might even do a run, not with my cougar unfortunately. If you're planning on going send me a PM. It'd be cool to meet up and see your car.

Ok, editing available now. Please update or correct
Note: Finagler gets the "*" position based on his post but I'd like to see more info so Finagler: please post up for everyone on what the car is all about.
The rest of the list are considered RUNNING, CURRENT, EVERYDAY racers... :)
