My '85 Cougar is going to the salvage yard August 26, 2013, 01:35:35 PM Just got off the phone with LKQ. $350 minus towing cost. Was my first car, circa 1996. Drove it until 2009 when the C5 bit the dust. Had the bright idea of swapping in a 2002 3.8L and 4R70W. That was 4 years ago. :disappoin I was planning on building a 2 car shop at my new house, with room for the Cougar and T-bird. However, it turned out the lot has septic instead of sewer (long story) and a shop isn't going to happen. Put my old house on the market last Tuesday. Got a contract on it 8 days later. So, the Cougar has to go.
