I have a 1988 Selby car that you guys have been looking for for the last 4 years set in in my yard right now it was covered up for the last 29 years   The car does run.

Hey Keefer,  I love the wide-body look on the Super Snake, but I’m not a big “Vert” fan or black wheels, J.M.O.!     For that kind of “JACK”  I would be seriously looking at something a little more exotic, but I won’t feel good spending that much on a new “TOY”!!!   LOL   :thumbsup:          Later bud!                “GOOSE”   :peelout:

 

I agree not a vert fan myself but It's not a Vert Goose...…….:shrug: …..Still way to much coin either way....:spend:

Hey guys!   I stopped at the local A & W  Wednesday Car Show and took some cool pics for all you guys or gals to enjoy!    There was one car that really stood out of the crowd for me, it was this really cool “Modded” 67 / 68 Mercury Cougar!    It looked like the guy who built it didn’t spare any expense in the process.  Very cool and nicely done all the way around!  It really looks like it would be a super cool track car!   It had a Roll Bar, custom harnesses, mounted camera between the seats for recording, custom dash with all the extra gauges installed, had a fuel cell and the battery in the trunk.    It also had a very cool Mustang Cobra Series Engine under the hood which really looked cool in the engine bay.    The car also had thick Billet Aluminum custom made hood hinges, Monte Carlo brace bar, custom tightening braces to tie it all in, and lots of other cool things to numerous to mention.   I didn’t get to meet or talk to the owner, but I would of told him he did a awesome job on building it and it looked really cool to me!   I would of loved to drive it, really looked like it would be a real blast to take it for a spin!!!   LOL  :drool:    I would kind of liked to “Mod” our 87 Mercury Cougar 20th Anniversary because it’s got a 5.O Engine, handling pkg., quad shocks, and larger factory equipped sway bars!  It was originally bought new for my wife and she doesn’t want me to change anything on it!  I guess I can’t blame her because it is a very rare cool looking model with only 5,000. in the U.S. and 200 went to Canada!    It’s time to make more room and something has to go, so I guess it’s going to be the Cougar that we babied for 32 years!!!!   :drop:      P.S. You can’t keep everything!!!    :shrug:        Okay, enough talk, and on to the pics!     Hope you all “ENJOY”!!         There’s 3 pics of that really cool Cougar,  and the last pic is of my 87, 20th Anniversary Cougar!!!   Later guys!   “MONGOOSE”      :peelout:

Thanks Mongoose for the pictures.  I also like the cougers especially the cobra version and the mods. 32 years wow so what is the replacement vehicle ?.......:headscratch:

 Yenkos are always a head turner in my book. Looks like spring has sprung in your neck of the woods. Did you get a A&W float for your wife ?  I remember those as a teenager while cruising the local A &W back in the 60’s.

Hey Slo Lane, it’s kind of funny that you mentioned the A & W float for my wife because she hates the taste of them with the root beer and ice cream together!  She really doesn’t like the Root Beer!  I do remember enjoying them as a kid growing up.   Years back there used to be a A &W called Barney’s, and when the Green Bay Packers would win, you could get like 10 hamburgers for $5.00!!  :thumbsup:       The Yenko cars are always nice to see, and there pretty rare!          Later bud!      “GOOSE”     :peelout:

Okay “Mr. Sneakers”, watch the video at your leisure and enjoy the rest of your vacation time.    Beautiful place to relax, but poor Bailey really looks bored!  :drop:
