Was looking through some old Special-Interest magazines laying around, and found this pic. Didn't know the first mustangs were actually called "Cougars"! And sport a cougar in the grill instead of the famous mustang. Just thought i would show you guys this, and any interesting info about mercury or the cougar name would be glad to know.

Did you know that the Cougar was not released until '66 because Lincoln Mercury had been waiting to see if the Mustang was going to be another Edsel flop. It must have been pretty devistating to Ford that 10 years later they were still gun shy about releasing a new car.
