At 51 years old, I needed a fun car
that wouldn't make it impossible to
send my kids to college. I did a lot of
research and the Merc Cougar came out
on top. Not the fastest or most
prestigious, but, to me, the best toy
for the $$. V6, 24 valves, full power,
perfect fit for my 5'7" frame. All this
with 30mpg on the open road. It corners
better than any of my other cars, and
makes me feel like I am in control.
Duratec V6, tight suspension, good gas
mileage, 11 seconds to 60mph.
Ford should put a Chrysler Torqueflite
into this baby. Ford has never, as far
as my experience with three of them
over 30 years has indicated, built an
automatic transmission that can shift
with the authority of a Chrysler.
