About “Black Cat”

I owned the car for 10 months but it was my dads before hand so i know how the car handles. It has been well maintenenced and taken car of. Lot of fun and fast memories with the car. Has mainly highway miles on it because it was my dad's work car. And i recently had to sell it because i couldnt afford to fix the engine again cause it threw another rod on the highway.

About “slvrbult”

Well, I got the car in April 2007 shortly before the end of my senoir year. The New Edge Cougars have always been one of my favorite cars since I can remember. I turned 18 years old in August 2007, got my driver's license, a job and started modding and fixing it little by little. It's come a long way these past 2 1/2 years. This one's a keeper. I've been a member of NECO (new edge cougar owners) since October 2007 and have been reading and taking in info since.

While the car is very quick in it's own right this thing is more of a road carver. The handling on the New Edge Cougars are RAZOR sharp thanks to it's European inspired underpinnings. Be careful with the torque steer though!
