    My Coolest Car. — This was my favorite car. It was all engine and could hall ass. The cool factor was the hidden headlights. Plus I had the same make of car the future Mrs.James Bond (Tracy) drove in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Sadly it's only a memory, sold it to the husband of my neighbor and he promptly totaled it. Oh well. It was a blast to drive while I had it.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Good Luck trying to find a descent one now that not a fortune.

    Cons: it's gone as of 1978.

    1969 Mercury Cougar — Last year I purchased my 1969 Cougar. After a search of the BC interior where I became disappointed with the term “Great Shape” I decided to take my search south and purchased an all original 1969 Ivy Green Cougar out of Eugene Oregon. I am the third owner and the car has all the horse power I need. With over 330 HP I am now able to relive the dreams of my youth and leave my own ten foot skid mark here in the present. “I love the smell of Rubber in the morning. It’s the smell of Victory” Here are a few picks of the updates, Exterior hood scoop, Lower spoiler , Rocker panels and 15 x7 Magnum 500 with 235 TA’s. The car has a complete new front end, tie rods, ball joints and upper and lower control arms. The 351W 4-V Drives like a dream and plenty of horse power with Edelbrock manifold and 650 carb, pushing 330 hp.

    Pros: Great Styling

    Cons: None

    My Baby Is Gone — I loved this car my whole life, and its the first car I ever drove that was a stick, and I had no problems driving it....then my dad PROMISED to sell it to me, then one day this guy from CA came out and was looking at MY car, and he bought it, despite my loud mumbling of "dont u dare buy my car, dont u dare" and the worst part was that I only needed to go to the bank in the morning to get the money my dad wanted for it, but of course, he couldnt simply wait one day to get the money, I was literally in tears for two months after the guy took my baby away.............it was the most beautiful car I had ever seen, it was blue with a black top, and it was the greatest car I have ever drove, even better than my '72 Skylark, or any other car I have ever had!!!!!!!!! I never get 4 cylinder engine cars, they just dont cut it with me!!!!!!!!!!

    Pros: The pickup is great

    Cons: My dad promised it to me, but then turned around and sold it anyways

    It Is Beautiful. — The american muscle with 5,7 liter V8. Nice car when it isn't raining. Posing with the roof down on a hot summer day is something close to perfect. Looks amazing, sounds amazing and the handling is, of course, terrible.

    Pros: Looks

    Cons: Handling, build quality
