I am the original owner of my Cougar XR7. I put the 2nd Mile on the car during the test drive when I pulled it off the showroom floor in April 1996.
The First Track run was actually made in June of 1996 with slightly less than 500 Miles on it. Its the 4th Cougar I've owned in my lifetime since owning the first which was a 69 XR7 in the late 70's.
It was a nice change from the mid/late 80's Fox Mustangs, Crown Vic Wagons, & Crown Vic I owned just prior to the MN12.
Like TM's car, mine has metomorphed over the years. 16 1/2 years now!!
