Went to the Pismo show today. I thought there was going to be a Cougar there or maybe I was to late. got there around 8:30 this morning. No Cougar! The guy from Leemore Ca. where were you. Sorry I missed you if you were there. Anyway Mustangs and Camaros, Camaros and Mustangs, oh did I say Mustangs and Camaros. I don't know guys and gals but we need to get or cars out there. Are we that rare? I got a few good lookers. Just wish mine was in better shape to enter. Well there is another one coming up in San Luis Obispo in Aug. I think I will do my best to get her in there. Just don't look at the dash. So i'm driving home about 70 on the 101 south and get to Santa Maria and out from the trees on the frontage road goes a 68. About broke my neck looking and yelling at my wife Cougar!! Cougar!! It was a site. Like seeing a rare animal come out of the tree lines.
Thanks for letting me share

I was there as well, saw a nice 428 1970 XR7 Convertible on Pomeroy St. just up from the pier. Did this belong to anyone here?

My buddy had his Mustang parked across from the Cougar. It pulls 9.70's at the track.

you can check out the mpeg here (btw, the 2 kids at the top are mine :)

Sorry, I went on Sunday so I guess that is why I missed you. I didn't see the 70 ethier. I drove around and around. Parked in front of the pool hall a couple cars down from that Ford Skyliner.
Yea I will be going to the Nats but again not till Sunday. My job keeps me real busy can't hardly get 2 days off in a row. Yes I will be in ah to see that many Cougars in one place. See ya all there.

I wished I could have been there, on the 7th-8th I went up to Marrysville for a show there, got the long distance award. There was only one other Cougar there. It's kinda weird to me, I've had my Cougar sinse 78, back then Cougars were common. Back then till about five years ago you didn't get a second look with a Cougar, then now when I take it places it's like it's some kind of new thing or something. For twenty years it was invisable at a car show now all kinds of people show interest in it. Me, I can't even fathem life without this stupid car, I've had it over half my life now!

When I was getting gas on sunday morning a young boy came up to me and asked me what kind of car the cat was. when i told him he yelled it back to his dad "it's a cougar!!!"

I kind of got a kick out of that..
