It was pretty fun, but the rain made of a mess of it all. Clear skies would have made it awesome.

Howdy!

Recently, a lady in a 1999 Explorer tried to turn left in front of my wife driving our 1991 Cougar XR7.

No, the wife wasn't hurt much, she was doing 15, and the Explorer stopped just about four inches into the line of travel.

What THIS means is, GEICO is paying for me to replace the hood, fender, header, and possibly the front bumper on my Cougar.

I've found all but the bumper and hood in red here in Shreveport/Bossier.

I was wondering if anyone a) had a red Cougar hood (preferably Electric Currant Red, the red for 1991), or b) knew of a pick/n/pull / u-pull-it type yard locally to you that had one.

To go with that, ideally a 1991 or 1992 XR-7 red front bumper (trim is body color, not chrome, and ideally it'd have cornering lamps, bezel in body color.)

And if either, if I drove down, could I get assistance in swapping hoods? (If not, I drive down in the truck, which doesn't get as good gas mileage, drats.)

Haven't heard anything on meets or cruises in a long, long time.
