The Archive of Articles

Melissa Vehicle Recognition Guide

The classic 1969 Mercury Cougar, a quintessential American muscle car from an era when many classic marques of performance vehicles from many countries spilled out onto the streets.
(It seems that Melissa prefers her Cougar in Mint-Green)

"Like a wild cat she purrs.
Like a muscle car she drives.
She's My home away from home,
and she makes me feel alive."
