Its My Third One So What Do U Think — The car will be flawless when it gets the body finished. Its the third one I own so yea I love them. The car is slick looking and doesnt sound like a rice burner. So I would deff recomend this car.

Pros: its American

Cons: They stop making them

My Tricked Out Mercury Cougar —

I had the 4 cylinder instead of the V6 but I couldn't find the V6 in a 5 speed and I didn't want an automatic. The body was very aggressive and stylish (and it should have been with all the money I dropped into it), but it didn't have much engine work done to it. I miss my baby and I wish I still had it til this day. Sold it before I went into the Marine Corps. So that is my story about my baby. I would recommend this car to anyone who would like to dress up a car and not spend a lot doing it, but if you love speed, I wouldn't recommend it not even the V6. *Full body modifications (front and back bumper, side skirts) *Full body decals (white and silver) *Smoked out windows 17" rims w/ Toyo tires (White 5 star with a chrome lip) *perfect for the look I was going for* *Body color was Electric Green *Turning signal covers were switched out from yellow lens to the clear lens and yellow blinkers were changed to green blinkers *Two 12" speakers in the trunk w/ a 600 watt amp (could've been more powerful, but it was free) *Green neon lights throughout the interior *Metal floor mats (front and back) The engine was my next project but I sold the car before I started. I wish I had pictures, it was car show material. I was just waiting for engine modifications and dropping the car a few inches.

Pros: Aggressive exterior modifications

Cons: Didn't have time to get to the engine work

My Cougar's Been Pretty Good To Me. — I guess the only reason I really don't like my car right now is because it needs some work, struts and such. And because I hit a BIG rock 4 days after I got it, so there's a big scratch in the side of it. She goes alright, but accelerates kind of slow. It's a Mercury.. what can you ask for?

Pros: Looks pretty good on the road. Nice sound.

Cons: Kind of slow.

Maintenance Cost:

Little Nice American Coupe — Performance are very good between 4000-5000 rpm. This car is greatly built. Interior style is pretty nice, seems like a luxury coupe. Consume 12 l/100 km on city mileage and 8 l/ 100km on speedway. Maintenance parts are tough to find, so it's expensive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun

Cons: Parts cost
