Saw this the other day and thought it was a really interesting car especially the interior.

For some reason that 89 cougar has 96/97 corners

That 79 is nuts, pretty cool thinking. I wish I knew what the hell all of that gibberish is under the specs, looks like he switched the font to wingdings.

Wow, that 79 is really different. But, since he filled in the little window in the "B" pillar, I thought is was a Fairmont at first.

Night was dark, but the sky was blue,
Down the alley, the ice-wagon flew,
Heard a bump, and somebody screamed,
You should have heard just what I seen.

Who do you love?

Good post, that first one is a steal for someone. Florida car, amazing.

The second one is a dream for me. Freggin dream.

The 96 cougar sport is what i wanted for a long time, but that one looks like some kid owned it, or someone from the ghetto owned it (wheel center caps were stolen, lol)

I rode in that 79 in Carlisle a few years back. It really is amazing. Talk about fast! The car is just too cool for words. I hadn't even thought about it since then. Nice memories.

That '79 is SWEEEEET!

Hmmmm, speaking of memories.....I had a '79 Cougar.....it was a total POS.
Primer gray. Vise grip for a gear shifter. Filthy leather- took me about 9 hours to clean it up.
I traded it to a guy for a 1981 Accord that was ready to die and went through brake pads once a month.
3 weeks later the Accord was on blocks and I figured I got the better deal.
A couple weeks later the Cougar burst into flames while I was driving down the street......guess we were even then!

Is Someone here gonna buy those cars?
The first 2 would be great collectables.

Sheesh, it was tough enough to swap the 94-97 interior into a 89-93 MN12, I wonder what that guy went through to install it in a 79.

Looks like one nice car.

He had to make the passenger side of the dash about 7" to 8" narrower. He did a REALLY good job of it. You can kinda tell in one of the pics, but it's hard to see. The drivers "cockpit" is just as it is in our cars, but the passenger gets short changed a bit. Not too bad, just not as comfortable as it would normally be.

It's hard to believe that as big as those things were, our cars have more room inside in both directions.

Not to mention the trunkspace, looks like he changed it quite a bit, but our cars still have more trunk space. Only reason it's so big is because the engine compartment is huge... the hood must be like 6 feet long =P

Dang, I want that 89 in the worst way (it's my dream MN12). I don't think he'll let it go for 800 though
