In This Issue


  • Liquid Copper Cougar – Dennis Glosik, whose Cougar roots go back to his dad’s 1972 XR-7, explains why not all Cougars have to be restored, factory-correct. His retro-mod 1967 hardtop turns heads wherever he takes it.
  • Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda – The fact that Mercury never produced a 1969 or 1970 Cougar Eliminator convertible didn’t stop Zoli Csik from building his own or LCM Co-editor Rich Truesdell imagining what it would have looked like in the 1970 catalog. And an update on how to photograph your Cougar, this time using your smartphone.
  • Straighten Out Sloppy Steering – Bill Basore explains why our Cougars don’t steer like they used to and shows you how to return your Cougar’s handling back to original equipment specifications.
  • Mystery Solved – Kevin Swirsky thought he knew his 1972 XR-7 convertible’s full history, but it took a call to Kevin Marti and an Elite Marti report to find out the whole story. What the story doesn’t tell are the four times Ken photographed his Cougar in a frigid Ontario winter for this feature.
  • The Boss Nine Cats – The saga of the Boss 429 Cougars continues with LCM Co-editor Bill Basore’s in depth investigation into the two Boss 429 1969 Cougars run by Mercury drag legends “Dyno” Don Nicholson and “Fast Eddie” Schartman. Ultimately, the program was star-crossed and didn’t quite work out as anyone expected.


  • Cat TracksLCM Co-editor Bill Basore talks about what makes our Cougars unique and this issue’s focus on modified Cougars.
  • Cougar People – CCOA club members from the Delmarva and Lone Star Clubs gather for the holidays.
  • Cougar Marketplace – Reviewing recent sales and traveling to Scottsdale for the 2016 auctions will take the pulse of the Cougar marketplace, especially for rare Eliminators.
  • Cougar Bookshelf – Debbie Basore explains why Kevin Marti’s Mustang and Cougar Tagbook is an essential volume in every Cougar enthusiast’s reference library. Don’t leave home without it.
  • Cougar Collectibles LCM Co-editor Rich Truesdell recalls why the #62 Mercury Cougar, part of the Matchbox 1-75 series, was his favorite die cast.
