Before developing its modern connotation, the word Cougar used to apply to the Mustang’s more upscale Mercury cousin. This purple car certainly isn’t the color I’d pick, but the electric shaver front grille and matching sequential taillights might be cool enough to overcome that. Color aside, it looks pretty clean for the price, has low mileage, and it should be easy to fix the stinkbug stance and hop up the 289 if need be. I really don’t like purple, though, so this one’s not for me – you’d have a third of the purchase price just changing the color the right way.
