...color. Went to Wesco to get some touch up paint to start attacking the many chips and scratches, and it matches perfectly to a 1982 Ferrari color called (probably not completely coincidentally) Acapulco Blue.

For those of you keeping score at home. Ford's Acapulco Blue (aka Mercury's Nordic Blue) is the car's correct color.

Obviously, I would have had to purchase a different car then! ::

Seriously, I'm not overly fond of red Cougars even when they originally came that way. The 67/68 Cats just don't look that good to me in red. *shrug*

Did you see the 69-ish convertible cat in M&F a month or two ago? Kind of a restomod IIRC. I thought that one looked pretty sharp in red. ::

Yeah, the 69 and 70 look much better in red. Post '70, they got those big honkin' grills, lost the headlight doors, and looked more like a 70s Lincoln. Completely unattractive in ANY color.

That really was a beautiful Red Cougar....I thought that restomoding was the best thing you could do to that car ::

Just 'cause you have a sharp (if intermittently running) convertible doesn't mean you have taste, Keith! ::

What's your definition of taste? Magnum 500's with white walls? ::

If that's it, I'll go tasteless. Thank you very much! ::
