Bill, my name is Dean. I was recently searching for a old Cougar I used to have when I was in my late teens and early 20's and I believe I came across my old Cougar...powder baby blue with a white rag top. I sold this car to a good friend in the early 80's, I believe his dad ran a dealership in the south. I am almost certain this was my car by the wire wheel covers that are on it that I acquired off a T-bird. Could you give me any background on this car and if you still have it. Thanks for your time. Hope to hear from you.

I responded:

Hello Dean,

I just take pictures at car shows & cruise nights. I'd love to have a car like that, but sadly I wouldn't have a place to put it if I did. I don't have any other information on it other than it was taken at a car show at the Boone County Fairgrounds back in 2009, so whoever who owned it then might still not have it anymore.

Can I post your email (minus the contact details) in my Reference Desk section and hopefully someone who knows the owner will come across it in Google? I'll make a note to email me and I'll pass it along if I get anything so your info won't be public.

Do you have the VIN?

Darn....no VIN....that would be great to post my email...thanks so much...have a great day

So, if anyone sees a baby blue 1973 Mercury Cougar with a white convertible top, let me know at admin@carsandracingstuff.com and I'll pass along the information to Dean. Thank you!
