1971 Mercury Cougar XR7


I bought this car in Albuquerque, New Mexico in the mid-80's and owned it for a couple of years before selling it in Colorado. I added the Running Lights which I thought looked cool - not everyone agrees with me! ;-) The previous owner had added a few extra performance tweeks, and this car was pretty quick off the line, although it was a slug in the curves - your classic "muscle car" ... even down to the fire-engine red paint job. I did get ticketed once on Base - I told the MP that I was driving "pretty fast" on a remote part of Kirtland AFB in order to "blow-dry" my car since I had just cleaned it - it really is the best way to insure no water drops on your finish. Suffice to say, he didn't think that was a good reason and gave me a ticket! ;-)
