Lime frost is an avacado green color, sort of a light silvery green... I will try to find a picture. It also has a black vinyl top.

C'mon Bill....tell all of us!!!!! What movie was at the drive in that summer? Only you and Debbie will know if the stories are "enhanced", and she'll just smile and nod.

Hmm... Lets see, As I recall, I had a '73 Grand Torino that had more room to roam than the Cougar. Sold it and bought a '74 Mustang II Mach 1 that was our honey moon car, sold that and bought our first new car, a '79 Mustang Cobra. I think the Cougar remained, shall we say, unmolested....
