New Owner in Wiltshire saying hello

B

bjw970s

Hi,

After driving one of the press pre-launch ones when they came out, we have always fancied a Cougar so, when we were looking for a run-around, it was either a focus or something more interesting and....we now have a 2.0 Silver 2000 reg Cougar.:smilewinkgrin:

It is pretty good nick, with very good history although it does need the drivers seat bolster fixed. It is a good to drive as I remember even in 2.0 form.

Things to do:

Fix seat or get Leather interior (any one know of any good interiors going?)

Fit cruise control (noticed via this forum that it's feasible) so after advice and a kit.

Apart from that just enjoying driving it.

tbh 120mile isn't bad especially for interior in the condition and free

Thanks for the welcome - Like the general theme on here I think this car is a future classic if not one already! I have to restrain myself however and keep the mods to keeping it looking good as I have a couple of other toys.

I might be busy that weekend - waiting for confirmation - but if not I will look at bringing my 205 Mi16 Rally shed along and will be happy to take folks out in it. I need get some more time in it anyway!

I am just outside Box

I hope you can make either or preferably both of the events! Great to have another cat owner so near to Bath - they are usually miles and miles away!! :smile5::smile5::smile5::smile5:

I have seen a couple around - I was surprised to see one in Chippenham opposite HALFRAUDS on Sun so I had to park next to it:smile5:

So to the silver V6, thanks for the forum leaflet! (nice to get one from an enthusiast even though I have joined already - shows it's a friendly club).
