SHUT UP. NO YOUR NOT!!

Beer Bibber says:

they drive GREAT ……… in a straight line.
But cornering, cicanes and so on ……… rubbish handling in corners.
I prefer the looks …… but not the handling.
The handling of an european or japanese car in an american musclecar
bodyshell would be heaven to drive.

It was good enough for James Bond!! a 1969 Mercury cougar with the rare
cobra jet engine was used in James Bond in her majesties secret service!!

wickedrebel512 says:

The Cougar Eliminator is probably one of the best looking muscle cars ever
made in my opinion

wedontknowone1 says:

wow! You must be excited! I wanna get one someday in my life! Because this
is my favorite muscle car that ever existed!

Stoneyburke says:

Sister had a 390 XR7 but got rid of it. Other Sis got a 1976 Cougar but it
was like the Monte. Too big.

james marshall says:

427 supercharged– would be noticable

Pencil guy Jim G says:

My friend and I came across one of these cats years ago with a 390 big
block from the factory. It was a 67… Cougars had all the cool engines…

scdevon says:

Such awesome American iron!

Relixstylz says:

Great show ! To bad they did’nt mention that much about the 351 cleveland,
that would have been cool.

bbo40 says:

I like this show a lot; but a little more “just the facts” and less of the
goofy narrative lines would make it GREAT ! Statements like ” This cat is
gonna roar……” and “ruffling the cats fur” etc. etc. make me cringe .
Make it more about the cars and not the silly,fluffy dialogue. . .

JustMikeOnlyMike says:

they should do a remake of this model with a nice big V8

IDiedForYou1776 says:

Bout time Cougars get the recognition they deserve…been a proud owner of
mine for a lil under 10 years :D

GohModley says:

Wish there were a Cougary with a Boss 351.

der golem says:

my dad owned an eliminator, mustang drivers used to pull up beside him and
challenge him to a race, he’d accept (with a large grin on his face) and
blow them away, he did’nt lose with that car; as i understand the U.S.
highway patrol used this car as an interceptor;some of those mustang
drivers are still crying,,hahaaa

Minecraft Guy Is Awesome says:

Better Than Modern Supercars.

xIsrael92x says:

someone was selling a green one around my neighborhood. God I wish I was
the one to have bought it.

scdevon says:

Ford made the best looking cars back then. No doubt.

ford351cmustang says:

Awsome car. Chevy or chrysler had nothing to compete with a 351 Cleveland
or big block cougar ive seen it many times on the track.

Steady .Clownin says:

i have a 1968 cougar xr-7 with the 390, freakin love that car

Lupa Meneguelli says:

With so many images, not show the grille opening the lighthouse? This was a
sin of the matter.

Garviel Loken says:

Was it a 1967 289 4-barrel in North Carolina?

janosleng73 says:

You are correct, it is a Javalin indeed!

Flyerborn497 says:

Haha man, thats awesome. Out of curiosity how many MPG’s do you get? I’m
thinking of buying one and im just curious. I know its a muscle car so im
not expecting much lol

Bcroft39 says:

I almost bought a 68 cougar with a 351 windsor. Very nice car with plenty
of muscle.

james marshall says:

why didnt auto makers just make 500 hp engines as an option for all cars

Andrew Ibot says:

“Yada yada da, don’t call it a mustang. It’s a perfect pony car yada yada
it’s not just a pony car. Yada yada it’s still not a mustang”

yvette wintermute says:

What a great looking car…..

NoGuff says:

I hate when people refer to “wood grain dash” when its either wood-painted
plastic, or just a sticker that looked like wood-grained plastic. SO CHEAP.

scdevon says:

I love these late 60′s big block Fords. They were good runners.

ThaBlackIce says:

00:30 wow is that a javelin?

Mary Hipple says:

I had a 67 !

CougarsUnlimited says:

We sure had alot of fun making this video! We hauled the #25 Cougar 1400
miles through an ice storm to Atlanta. Many thanks to all who helped make
this video possible!

james marshall says:

cougar lookin for a cub–lol

svkartisbest says:

Mercury Monarch 78 gentleman’s car

Alex Ibarra says:

@IDiedForYou1776 Amen! Ive owned mine for about 6 months now gotta get
working on it come spring so its ready for the summer!

Garviel Loken says:

This car is badass. Shame a lotta people don’t know about it anymore. It
didn’t retain it’s popularity as well. Good to see it’s being recognized…

alex davis says:

i had a dude tell me his diesel Mercedes could beat my cougar in a drag
race -_-

Paloma Monteleone says:

the boss 302 lost to the chevy guys. ford should have went w a 351 cougar

scdevon says:

Big block Fords were really good engines back then.

areubaked says:

I loved my 1967-68 Cougars. Wish I still had them. Loved their looks – so
much better than a Mustang to me. My rarest Cougar was a 1968 XR7-G 390
with factory sunroof. Just like what you see in this video at the 2:10
mark. or at 3:41. I also had a really fast ’67 XR-7 GT 390 4V “S” motor w/
4 speed. I swapped a 427 2×4 into it. Awesome cars.

isaacaaron4jesus says:

the 351 cleveland won a 12 hour australian race called bathhurst. the
engine was mated to an f-100 tranny and put in a 4 door falcon gtho.
