Hi

Welcome to the unofficial Australian Cougar collectors group. There are a number of Cougar owners in Melbourne who are members here.

Is it still LHD or has it been converted?

Only got 1 "B" but id sure put another one if that made it more interesting..
If the second 'B' was next to the M it would indicate a two tone Cougar, Marroon car with White painted top.

Hey That's me Terry Grogan,but I'm more interested in an U.S. info. The second B was a typo the car is, and always has been white.

Probably around 50. If I can find some of the old Cougar Owners Registry newsletters from 90's I should be able to get a better number. The only Boss302 Eliminator in the country used to be in Melbourne but I think it might be in Geelong now

There were a few Cougars for sale in Just Cars last month, and quite a few less for sale this month. If they sold, then there might be a few more Cougar owners in Melbourne than there were in the 90's.

Also, there are a few owners in the Lincoln Mercury Club - http://www.lincolnmercury.com.au/

I have been to one of their events and will probably join the club this year and go to a few more events.

You meet Cougar owners in the strangest places. I parked the car near a park in Romsey. I'd been visiting a friend and took my daughter to the swings. Before I knew it, three generations of a local family were at the park looking at the car - turns out that Grandpa thought he had the only '70 XR7 convertible in Melbourne until he saw mine. Another time I took the same daughter to a model train exhibition in Caulfield. Turns out that I was not the only person asking for a tiny model Cougar - there was a fella there who had two full size Cougars and was looking for a tiny one for his model trains.
