Barrett Jackson 2009: 1968 Mercury Cougar

1968 Mercury Cougar
The sign of the cat

This is the cracker-mobile, right down to the color and roof, except that it lacks bondo, rust, unmatched wheels, unmatched tires, and pretty much starts when you want it too, and runs until you tell it to shut off.  Also, the lights work, 24 year after Cracker’s version.

To be fair, these cars, as built, were horrendous pieces of shit, so the sparty paint job alone probably was enough to push it into unsafe at any speed territory…

Why is this a flashback?  Because Mrs. Phid went from the previous shitbox to one like this.
