Cougars Everywhere — Cool car. Very long for a two door. Good power. Love the style. Built to last. They don't make them like these anymore. The white interior is mint. Bad on gas but what do you expect from a 1778 boat

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great power. Cool style, Heavy, Built to last

Cons: Gas

It Was A Boat That Hydroplaned Alot! — boat! it guzzled gas, it was horrible in the rain and snow and had a 8 track! I would highly not reccommend it unless you wanted to die going to the gas pumps! I have to write 7 more words!

Pros: roomy

Cons: huge

The Car Is A Pleasure To Drive. — Everything is solid. In 1978, plenty of steel was used with very little plastic. The 351 W has plenty of power and the car was orderred for trailer towing. The factory 14" mag wheels give a low profile look to an older car.

Pros: solid car

Cons: Over 19 feet long

My Cougar — This car is a the best built car i have seen. everything feels solid about it. of course older cars sway when you turn but that's what makes them classical. this car was handed down to me with a little more than 33,000 miles on it and i haven't drove it much so it's still under 34k. the only repair needed is a new gas guage but other than that it is looks brand new. everything on it is stock.

Pros: looks brand new

Cons: it's in between the cougars muscle car years and luxry years
