I was out taking a bike ride with the kids today and I went around a corner less than a half mile from my house and there is an open garage with a 69 Cougar Convertible in it! The owner was standing on the driveway so needless to say we had a long visit. He has owned his Cougar for 22 years and I have owned mine for 25. He does not go on to this forum due to lack of time but it was great to meet a fellow 69 convertible owner right down the street. What are the odds.
