Cool Picked up another ford...its like a virus!

Well, after i had some minor mechanical issues with the bonneville, which have now been fixed, i bought a 1983 Mercury Cougar. It was old, i thought it was cool, had a V8 among other things, and started plans to replace the engine with a 351. well, I just ended up buying another car! my now third running driving car is a 1974 Mercury Cougar XR7 with that coveted 351 in it! and its leather!












Yeah its huge, 2 inches short of 18 feet long!

That rear seat looks like an expensive couch. Why can't they make interiors like that anymore?

mileage is an EXCELLENT question...cant remember, Ill have to check next time im at the car, its across the city right now, and i have no gas...haha whoops.

biggest thing that throws me off tho, everything is in miles, and my head doesnt do the conversion well enough to km...probably gonna get a speeding ticket next summer.
