1967 Mercury Cougar (Buttercup)

Photo of a 1967 Mercury Cougar (Buttercup)


This is another one of my Dad's cars from his collection. As a classic car dealer, now and then he would get a car that was like one that had sentimental value. This is one of those cars. When he was serving in Vietnam in 1967-68, my Mother purchased a red 1967 Cougar. For some reason, upon his return from 'Nam, he decided he didn't like the car and sold it. Years later, he told my Mom he felt bad about doing that and so found this car to replace it. Although a different color, it was like the car she had bought.
When my Dad passed in 2002, he had 11 cars left in his inventory. We sold most of them, but kept three that had great sentimental value. This is one of those cars. We kept it specifically to give to our youngest daughter, born almost one year after his passing and named for him. My Dad's name was Darrell Johnson and everyone called him "DJ". So our youngest daughter -- age 8 -- is DJ, which stands for Devon Jessica. She loves her "Cougar Car" and named it Buttercup, since it is a beautiful Jamaican Yellow.
