Mercury Cougars

I got my first Cougar at 22 and mostly by mistake.  I was serving in the Navy and headed home from a Mediterranean deployment right near the end of my enlistment.  I would be leaving the ship and the Navy about a week after our return. I sent my older brother a letter (this was long before the Internet and e-mail) asking him to find me a British sports car using the money I'd been saving over the course of my enlistment.  What I came home to find was a 1968 Mercury Cougar XR-7 instead.  It turned out there wasn't as much money in my account as I'd thought and the Cougar, with it's Jaguar-like influences was the closest thing my brother could find to a British sports car that I could afford with the money available.  As it turns out, I never should have sold that car.  That Cougar is lost to the mists of time, but here are the stories of the ones that came after...

Ford Mustangs

Mustangs have been a part of my life since I got my first one at 17, shortly after my first car was destroyed by a drunk driver. That 1965 Mustang convertible saw me through a good chunk of my Navy years and even got me from Connecticut to the Great Lakes Naval base in February 1972 through a blizzard that closed the New York State Thruway.  I can still remember lying in the snow replacing the clutch after it failed and forced me to drive home 20 miles without a clutch at all.  But I loved that car and every one that followed.

The Garage Today

I like variety and today I finally have it.  My current collection of vehicles, aside from the daily drivers used by my wife and two sons, provides the capalities for any occasion.  There is the 1999 Jeep Cherokee for my winter season daily driver and plowing the driveway, the 2012 Ford F-350 that tows my car trailer and hauls stuff as needed, and the 2007 Chrysler Crossfire Limited Roadster that is my 3-season daily driver so that I have the performance and top-down enjoyment when the weather cooperates.

Everything Else

While this site may look like it belongs to a true-blue Ford guy (and it more or less does), I've also sampled many other makes and models.  My first car purchased with my own hard-earned money, was a 1965 Pontiac Tempest convertible. There have been many others since then, some of which are shown on the next page.  Like many who appreciate the muscle car era, I can only wish that I still had some of the cars I owned and sold over the years.
