I bought this car off of ebay for less than $500.00. When I was younger, I had a 1986 Mercury Cougar LS which I drove for over 6 years straight. I loved that car and anybody that knows me says "I thought of you the other day... I saw a Cougar" I have planned on getting an 85-86 Cougar for a while, and when I saw that auction on eBay, I could not wait any longer. The new one needs a lot of work, but it is a Turbo Supercharged Cat with a manual transmission... I am in Heaven!!

Future Plans:
I plan to fully restore this vehicle and then some. I want it to look sharp, but also be a sleeper.
