Mascars body work and paint is second to none in my book.. absolutely Awesome.
Surprised you painted that intake blue ?
Going for a sleeper look?

None the less Perfection!!

McKeever........your opinion and comments mean a lot to me because I know you say 100% what you mean!

I had them paint the intake because yes, I wanted a race / stealth / stock look........and I think it looks bad to the bone :)

Scott, Kenny and Adam, the car looks great. Take good care of it Scott and I am very happy that you have it.  Here is a picture of it[about 1994] at a local Lincoln- Mercury dealer. My wife and I took it up when they had some cats doing a promotion and we got in on the fun.

Great work guys!

Scott,

You should put the T/A Style Oil Breather setup on it. That would look so b*tchin with that cross boss setup.

Also, was the woodgrain interior/rimblow wheel an option on the Boss Eliminators? And aren't the wheels suppost to be dark charcoal argent? You know, I don't half as much as you about the Cougars. I just remember a buddy of ours (Rich Ladd) used to always bring over a new Cougar he was working on, or the orange owns him and his wife owned. I remembered the wheels being a dark charcoal color. This was in the 80's.

Hope all is well, with all of you.

Eric

I told Kenny about my Rimblow, that was re-done by KiwiBoss Gary, and he thought I was smoking crack for the price. :(

This is after I knocked off an extra 300 for him too.  :-\

Here is the orignal numbers matching, rebuilt motor that put out a little over 400hp on the dyno.
Its going in a crate for dry storage, In case Scott decides to put it back to stock.

That motor looks real nice, but I think I will leave the 360 ci cross boss motor in it, thing runs amazing! So strong and so much fun, without the worry of hurting the original motor.

Frank, can't wait for you and your wife to come out and drive it. :)

Scott this one has a 347 in it. I know it feels like a 360. Kenny did an amazing job on this motor.

 :D Hi Scott, Cougar looks fantastic!!! I spoke to Frank & Sharon last night during Barrett-Jackson & he told me about the restoration being complete. Hopefully one of these days I can make it to California to see it again. Perhaps with my '13 GT500, Grabber Blue. Now I just need to find the time to get away.

Congrats,

Kevin
