    Default Hello from White Rock, Canada

    Hi. I own a 1969 Mercury Cougar Eliminator which I first bought new from the showroom on Aug.1, 1969. I owned it for 5 years and due to a number of things happening in life (wife, kids, home, etc.....) I sold it, and regretted it almost immediately. Then, fast forward to now ... in August 2009 I started looking for a project car, but not my car because it had been totaled 2 months after I'd sold it. I happened on a website that showed this 1969 Eliminator for sale, and the rest is history. I discovered the car was my original car that had been poorly repaired. I bought the car again and had it professionally restored so that now it looks better than new.

    Go to my website http://harrya.webs.com to read the whole story and also see photos of the car and the restoration process.

    Thanks.
    Harry
