Cougars get no Recognition !

Discussion in '1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator' started by cougman, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. How many factory ass'bld. cars, recieved these standard features, that the "Classic" Mecury Cougar came with?
    I'll name a few
    Hideaway headlights
    Sequential Rear Turn Signals
    Leather Interior with XR-7 pckg.
    Simulated
    Walnut Dash on XR-7
    Hood Scoop on GT-E & Eliminator
    Two -Tone Paint Scheme on GT-E
    427 Sideoiler or later prod. 428 C.J. on GT-E

    These cars are out there , waiting for another chance to roam the highways . Just Pure American Classic Muscle with a little styling thrown in !

    true, cougars are underappreciated...hard to believe since they are basically longer mustangs with added niceties...and we all know how overpopular the mustangs are (thats not to diss 'em, i drive a mustang myself)

    This thing is bad. I was cruisin' around in my GTO and a black XR-7 pulled up beside me in a stop light. That thing had a nice purring engine! They should be more appreciated, and SC.net should post up the XR-7

    damn straight this is a nice Musclecar...Cougars are probably the most underrated Musclecars out there. I love old Cougar Musclecars, too bad the Cougar line has been discontinued, but we will always have the old Cougar Elimintators and such tearin' it up at the strip or kickin butt at car shows...the Cougars were badass!

  13. Re: Cougars get no Recognition !

  15. whats up every body. let me start by saying damn straight cougars are bad ass. i drive a 70 elim clone, that i'm building. right know it's a daily but i hope to go to bracket after a while.that being said who else has a cat?
     
  16. my friends uncle has 2
     
  17. Triple Black Sleeper ..... The Ultimate Hemi Hunter equipped with a 390 hp 427 SO.
     
  18. All 4 of these are FE powered , either by 428 Cobra-Jet or 427 Sideoiler's .

    Why didn't they put the 427 SO in a Mustang ??
     
  19. id have to agree cougars are underapriciated...i have a '72 xr7 with the original 351c beefed up a bit...and makes for one hell of a sleeper....bring on the ricers.....already need new tires for all the burnouts.....
