I have read this whole thing I have been trying to figure out where I weigh in. So far the best idea, I have heard is kirkm76's mustang idea. A limited production Eliminator, find out if they can pull this off. Obviously it would have to have a unique Cougar body, but let everything under the skin be Mustang.

On the flip side, the worst idea I have heard also belonged to kirkm76. The crossover thing would really kill the name. When re-using a name, the newer version can adversely affect the future and the heritage.

Last part of this diatribe has to do with "ricers", in this agree with everything Bones had to say.

MY idea would be to stretch the mustang a couple of inches use the 5.4 SOHC as a base motor the 5.4 DOHC for the GT and a 5.4 DOHC supercharged for the Eliminator. What say you to that guys?

We owe it to ourselves to relive our cougar heritage by having a new model be done justice and be made in the image of what Cougar use to be in all its early history.

Well, i think most of us members either think the new cougar is a good idea or a brilliant idea while only 4 members think its a bad idea and only 1 member thinks its a horible idea. But i say... we can do it. Its an excellent idea and it should be done. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl harbor?... Hell no!... Whos with me?... Come on Mercury.. Lets Do it!!!!
