In This Issue


  • Watch for the Presidential Limo In 2016 – The Cougar will turn 50 in the Fall of 2016, and new CCOA President Gavin Schlesinger is already planning the celebration, all the while behind the wheel of his daily driver 1968 XR7-G.
  • Long Way From Home – This Cougar traveled 12,000 miles from its birthplace in Dearborn, Michigan to its first home in Exmouth, on Australia’s West Coast. It has lived all 48 years Down Under. LCM editor Rich Truesdell talks with owner Mike Merema and tells its almost-impossible-to-believe story.
  • No More Lazy Eyes – Bill Basore explains how you can replace your original vacuum-operated headlight doors with a modern electronic alternative with plug-and-play simplicity.
  • Better the Second Time Around – Cougars are in Sharon Osborne’s blood; her first was raced back in the 1980s. Twenty years later, along came her second, and like her first, it sees time at the track. Sharon tells LCM‘s Rich Truesdell their improbably stories.
  • Team Cougar: Mercury Goes Racing – In 1966, success of the new Cougar was anything but guaranteed. A history of near misses and outright failures had everyone at Mercury on edge. If you want to sell on Monday, you have to win on Sunday. Could the new Mercury Cougar meet the challenge? LCM‘s Bill Basore revisits this chapter of the Cougar’s competition history.


  • Cat Tracks – Co-editor Bill Basore asks LCM’s readers what they want to see in the magazine. What’s your opinion, especially on featuring resto-mod or modified cars?
  • Event Coverage – CCOA President Gavin Schlesinger along with photographers Luigi Dioniso and Andrew Chenovick provide coverage of the 2015 CCOA West Coast Regionals where almost 100 classic Cougars and their owners enjoyed the company of their fellow enthusiasts.
  • Cougar Marketplace – While most of the collector-car world will be focused on the auctions on the Monterey Peninsula, the attention of Cougar fans will be focused on the other side of the country as an original 4-speed GT-E will cross the block at the Owls Head Transportation Museum.
  • Cougar Collectibles – Recreate Cougar Trans Am racing history in your game room or man cave with 1/32nd scale slot cars from Scalextric and Pioneer.
