SLap a cobra engine in it! I wanted the one that Clooney drove in the From Dusk to Dawn movie. That cougar was nice and simple.

Looks really good. I love the old cougars. The rims are as you said, not too modern, not too vintage - just right. Good luck on the engine install and I hope to see some of the install(ed) pics soon.

Stephen

Winter mods included:
- Developing Rocker Rust
- Saggy Suspension - fixed!
- Chipped paint
- I'm sure more to come... TOTALED

hoping by the end of the weekend the engine will be in its hole for now. it will need to come back out for paint

Looks great, Justin! Are you still going to have the wheels painted or powder coated?

How did I miss this post?!?!

Those look nice. Basically Torq Thrust D's with a polished rim. I like them. I was planning on TT D's on my 73, but may have to consider these.

Either way, OUCH on their prices for either!!!

Looks great, keep up the restoration.
