I know a lot of you like Mustangs and love them to death. I own one and it is one of my favorite drivers but I have to tell you the Cougar is a far better cruise car. Although they are not as cheaply restored as a Mustang they are well worth a second look for anyone wanting something just a little different than the Mustang.
