Yeah, it is an amazing car. Kona blue is the color - yep - love the color. So smooth, some '500 owners complain that "it drives like a Lincoln", but I'm not one of them. When you get into the 550HP it's a different story tough! :D

I've been feeling guilty lately since there's no room in the garage for my Cougar any more - can't decide if I should keep it or sell it - arrgh! I put sooo much sweat and tears into the Cougar.

I got room here for your Cougar! I'll even, uhhh, start it up once a week or so to keep fluids circulated for ya lol

Nahhh, don't sell your Cat, you'll regret it if you do.

Yeah, I know, but I also can't stand seeing it deteriorating out in the elements, even if it is covered in winter. I rarely drive it now and when I do it just reminds me how much smoother the new car is. Uggh

Garage the one that doesn't have corrosion coverage in the warranty, or maybe the one that doesn't have a warranty at all.

This is the problem - I have 4 cars. A T-Bucket gets one stall and the GT500 gets the other. Daily driver I don't care about. Cougar is now yellow from pollen - uggh.

I know the feeling of the newer cars being more "smooth". I think the same thing every time I drive my Mustang after being in the 'bird. Its amazing what difference almost 20 years makes in cars. Hell they claim there is a big difference in my '07 and the '10+ 'Stangs as far as interior quality, etc.

I've been with this bird too long to ever see it leave, though. If I had to get rid of one, my '07 GT would be the one I'd choose. Good luck in your decision! Your Cougar is one of my favorites on this forum!

Dont feel too bad about not garaging the cougar. I dont garage mine and yes its covered in pollen. That just means it gets washed and waxed friday afternoon before cruise time:)
