Here are some pictures of my Cougar... I just got it back, it's been in the shop because some dumb teenager (I'm 16 but at least I know how to drive) hit my car and totaled the driver's side fender. I just put new rims and dual exhaust with new headers (Flowmaster, Hedman). I'm not even close to being done, I want to make this car a totally cuztom Cougar.

Seems to have improved over the last time we saw it! I like the new rims, they're different. Glad it's back. Here's a tip, don't drive next to any young people or any old people - both are dangers! - Chad

Cougar

I just put the bumper on, the pictures were taken the day I got the car back (2 weeks ago). I think I got riped off on the bumper, I paid $200 to get it rechromed, is that too much?

I paid $250 each for my bumpers...

Way I look at it is, what would you rather have? A $150 bumper that looks like crap or has thin plating, or a $250 bumper that looks like a million bucks.

Easy answer. :)

Once Again!

Once Again a stupid teenager hit my car! I need to stop takin my Cougar to school! A reckless teenager hit my car from the back, lucklely he was only going 10mph, there are no dents but there's a couple deep, big, ugly scratches. The guy said he would pay for the damange but I think my car might need the entire car painted again (well, not the entire car but the body, no door, no fenders, no hood). I don't see how could have not seen my car, it's a big silver car with big bright brake red lights!

Damn teenagers. I think if anyone drives into my car I will either be arrested for assault or murder. ;) - Chad

ha, a buddy of mine was supposed to move my car 5 feet once. next thing i know i look back to the sound of screeching tires and my car is basically pushing a Mustang. he says he hit the gas instead of the brake. that sucked. my bumper got bent and the front 1/4 extension was puched by it so the paint that was in that seam move and cracked. i did pull the bumper out ( it happened at school and we have a frame rack ) and it looks good now ( not like it was, but better than bent) and my buddy still owes me a rechroming.......

I have a question....

I'm planning of sellin my car (personal reasons) and I was wondering how much I should sell it for. It has the original 289ci and the odometer reads +300,000 (I'm guessin it's been rebuilt before because it runs pretty good still), C4 Transmission (needs a lil work, once in a big while gears gets stuck), custom dual exhaust (Flowmaster), Headers (Hedman), Rims (Forgot Brand but r worth bout $1,000 with the tires), NO RUST, New Paint Job (Silver with Black Strips) Payed bout $2,000 for that and many more (minor) new parts. I spent a lot of money one it (well, I think it's a lot, I'm on 16) and I know I'm going to loose money sellin it but I don't want to loose too much. I thought about sellin it for $5,000, i that good or not?

If the damage (scratches etc) was fixed on that car, it'd be worth 5k easily, probably more.

5k is generally the price on a standard resto job, and yours is a particularly nice looking resto.

I'd say you could probably get a couple grand more out of it.

I know I'm late posting on this subject...

... but I was wondering where you live Alx? I live in Stockton and saw a sweet Cat runnin' around with a very similar paint job as yours? Did you sell it? If you did do you know where it ended up?

By the way... why in the hell would you want to get rid of that Cat!?!

Cougar for Sale...

I live in southern california... The Cat is still with me and still for sale... I really love that car, you don't know how much attention I get with that car but I'm graduating from high school soon and I need money for a techinal skool I want to attend. I spent the very little money I made last year on it hoping I would have it for the rest of my life, but now I think of it as my piggy bank.


Other Info About the Car: for those of you who wanted to know about the interior, it's the stock one, there are 2 big rips (back and bucket seat) but besides that (and the door panels) it looks decent. And in car will gone in the shop next week to get the scratched removed.

Yeah!! I just totalled some guys suped up Honda civic last night. Cuts over 3 lanes to the left, to make a left where theres a big shiny sign that said "no left turns" Stopped right in front of me, and then i tore off the trunk of his car with my bronco. Checked my damage, ha ha not a scratch on my truck. Just busted a Hella, and put a dent in my Push bar. LOL Didnt look like I hit a thing. That one was for all you guys!!
