About this site
I've been collecting information about Cougars that
I have found on the Internet and this site is my way
of sharing. There are two parts to the site, text
and images of mine and a wiki for sharing links and
information I've found. Check the menu at the top,
there's links to parts vendors,
Cougar clubs, technical information, and lots more.

Sequential Taillight problems:
The sequential taillights are one of the unique things about
Cougars, but they share some parts with Thunderbirds of the same time.
Most parts are available, and there are also electronic
replacement units available. Vic Yarberry at Cougars
has parts and a trouble shooting guide. I have an electronic unit in my car now, I bought it from Vic. Vic also races a 67
Cougar in vintage races, and knows a lot about Cougar suspensions.
