New guy....New 67!...I can't sleep!

Hi folks!...Glad to be here!

Found this site while looking up STUFF for my 67 coupe and thought....gee...why not!

My first car was a 68 cat back in 87 had it for a few years and sold it :( ....got into a 71 Javilin SST had that one for 5 years then a 71 Camaro RS for 8 years and now I'm back! YES!


I just found my 67 coupe the day after I sold my 71 RS! last Wed night and found the Coug owners add on a obscure google search...and the Kid I bought it from from was clueless on what he had! asking 3,000 ...my price...2,300.00 I should have said 1,500?

It's 90% factory with some minor body work done and new paint that can't be more than 6 years old! very stock! The black Interior is about a 8 with the bench seat, no belts...nor where there any holes in the carpet for them!...( could be after market), head liner 95% perfect!, only the two center Seq' turns work ( typical ) need to get the front passenger turn working...the turn motor is clicking ...that a bad start.

Sorry to freak out on my first post...but WOW! I can hardly sleep and I think Ive lost some weight too!:rolleyes:

All it needed was a new back glass, carb rebuild...did that the first night...PURS LIKE A KITTEN! :D

Lots to be done.. back to the garage! :D

Thanks for the killer welcome guys! :D

I'm working on posting some pics on line right now....

After some cleaning and some minor buffing with the FINE polish it turns out that the color has a slight pearl in it! COOL! not factory but NICE!.....the original color was a light yellow cream. So its very close.

Hi Seattle Cat, welcome to the litter. Going to go check out your pics now.
Checked out the pics, extremely nice cougar, congrats.


I like your signature line, awhile back ours should have been, the wire goes here, and that ones goes there and the battery explodes.

I bought my first Cat last week. I've been suffering from lack of sleep ever since! Hehe....

Previous AMC and Chebie owner huh? One of the things I've found amazing, is that no matter what brand people are loyal to. Almost everyone loves a Cat.

Anyways, welcome to the board....its a great place.
