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!
