Photo of a 1972 Mercury Cougar XR7 (Chris)

About

This photo was at the Cougar National Convention in Dallas Texas in 2006. It won it's class and was featured as November on the National Calendar. Obviously before the 429 and Hood Scoop & Ram Air (with the 351 Cleveland, FMX)
How it was aquired:
We had a christmas budget and have 4 daughters and bought them all motorcycles for christmas but I had seen this Cougar and my wife had also. One day she said, that's the most beautiful car I've ever seen. So I sneakingly stopped one day and asked the fellow what he wanted for it and it was way beyond my means at the time. He said well, make an offer so I made a very small standing offer and he laughed. 2 days before Christmas he had to have cash so I was scrambling. I aquired it and gave it to my wife for Christmas. (hence the name Chris)Since then we've painted it and built the 429 for it. http://www.yo...v=z0AQCT14Edo . This is a real old school muscle car. This car weighs 3,760# with the 429 wet.
