1994 Mercury Cougar XR7 (the mutt)
Last updated Jul 6, 2009
i bought it in 2005, it was originally going to be the daily transportation till i fixed my old 76, but i (and my parents) came to the conclusion it was going to take way more work than its worth to ever get it in just ok shape, so it went to the crusher before i even got the 94. when i picked it up i still wasnt really planning on keeping it even still (i was planning on getting another car to build up like a gran torino or a mercury montego and even considered fox body mustang) so the longer i had this car the more i started to like it, it wasnt fast, but it handled really well compared to my 76 (duh) so i decided to look into what people have been doing with these things from the 5 years of mm&ff magazines i have and found an article in my december 2003 issue about supercoupes, it mentioned the sccoa and tccoa sites so i checked them out and pretty much became addicted to these cars the more i read about them and the modifications soon followed.
recently i had been considering buying a mustang to build up instead as i had grown frusterated with nothing fitting right because of the mustang specific parts i used and the stupid high prices of aftermarket parts(if you have one of these you know). but once i thought i was out it pulled me back in, after installed some PI stuff and got the new trans in, i came to the conclusion that i'm too deep into these cars to even consider building something else, plus the car got alot funner.
that said i really cant say what will happen next with this car, the sentimental value alone keeps me interested, and the quest for speed just adds alot of challenges, but i will say it will never be finished.
