My black Cougar XR7 is my baby. It has a unique ground effects kit that I believe was dealer installed. It has every option that was available to be ordered that year, and everything except the cruise control (which I never use anyway) still works perfectly. The 24K gold trim is still in good shape, and it has the original paint, except where I cracked the ground effects in the front and had to have it repaired. My son has done a bit of modification to the engine which increased the speed, always a plus. I have an Eclipse cd player with remote, with all the original speakers in the car upgraded with replacements, and two amps in the trunk along with my subwoofer. Also, since these pics were taken I have had the windows tinted darker, and had flowmasters installed. I've replaced the exhaust twice since I've had it. Must be the Indiana winters.

Future Plans:
At the moment I have no additional upgrades planned. I keep it garaged (while my new truck sits outside which is kind of a sore subject but what can you do? The motorcycle is in the other bay, and you know the important stuff has to be garaged, right?) I have no plans to sell it, and as of now no real aspirations to show it, although I probably could. It really is a nice looking car.
