Readers’ Rides

The answers to these questions will form the foundation of, and be edited into, a Readers’ Rides feature that will appear on the Legendary Cougar Magazine Facebook page. The text generally runs for about 250 words, and will tell the story of your Cougar to a readership that can’t get enough of classic Cougars.

Please answer the questions as if you are having a conversation with a fellow enthusiast. Please provide as much detail as possible; more is better than not having enough. With the exception of the spelling of any names you want to include, don’t worry about spelling or grammar, we’ll handle all that on our end. Please help us tell your car’s story and history.

Your email address (required):

  1. First, a bit about you. Your personal 411: family status, occupation, and where you live. People want to know a little bit about who you are, what you do, and where you live.

  2. Talk about your experience as a car enthusiast and especially, how it factors into your enthusiasm for classic Mercury Cougars from 1967 to 1973. Is the car being profiled your first Cougar? If not, please talk about other classic Cougars you've owned over the years. (required)
  3. How did you come to acquire the Cougar being featured? Talk about how you found it, what its condition and mileage were when you acquired it, and what attracted you to this particular Cougar. (required)
  4. After acquiring the car, what did it need to be brought up to its current presentation? If the car required restoration, talk about the process. Did you do the work yourself?
