Ok, so it's not a Cougar but...it is unique. My buddies Fairlane that I've more or less rebuilt over the course of the last several years. New motor from FE Specialties in Sacramento, in a word...Wow. Tons of grunt, new gears and locker, shed a whole bunch of weight over the winter. This thing was marching at the top of 4th gear, 130 mph at the end of the drag strip down into 7 and into 11. Check it out if ya'll get the chance...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFP5Su8rIbg

He's got Wilwood 13x1.10's in the front with 4 piston calipers, Porterfield carbon pads up front and drum in the rear....definetly needs more brake now..
The pass....open passing day unless you had a dot on the back. Still, just move over or better yet hold your line, don't take your foot off the gas and step on the brake...yikes.

Nah, Andy, that FE sounds like 1/4 ton of FUN!

Nice vid. I think I saw at one point you were chasing after a friend of mine (Army buddy of my daughter and son-in-law) in his white late-model Mustang; left him a note on FB asking if he was running last weekend.

Okay, so it's a Windsor - no problem! The "FE Specialties" motor shop threw me off.

Yeah, Nick's been over at the Army Language School in Monterrey for almost a year, now; and has been spending a lot of his time (and money) at Infineon and Laguna Seca. White '07 Mustang GT, somewhat "modified" in back; he lifted at the wrong point in a corner at LS.
I've been following his "car-cam" videos and looking for your Cougar on the replays.
