    suggestions
    1. Please don't stop. It was great seeing your Sable chops - I really liked them, lightbrotha2004!
    2. Ignore unconstructive or flippant comments. Mercury seems to be 'bashing-allowed' (almost encouraged imho).
    3. Consider more than one generation for inspiration.
    4. Consider unusual donor-cars... maybe the AuFalcon? or even the Mercura-TL, Meriniti-G35, Meraudi-A4/6?
    5. Consider posting in the Ford forum - no fewer haters but maybe more supporters.

    Cool Re: Mercury Cougar

    Not a fan of the styling, but you did a really good job . Try using styling from the newer mercuries (Milan, Mon...sorry, Sable) to make it have a more modern look. Awesome idea.

    I can't see the picture. Oh, no, my computer is working just fine. I mean I went blind after looking at that thing...

    Seriously, the quality of the chop is nice. The problem is that you are working with a, what, 35 year old sedan. Even after chopping a foot off the trunk, you are left with a "coupe" that is hideously disproportioned. A coupe needs to be sleek and personal.

    Plus, there are all sorts of design elements that are just past their prime. The shape of the C pillar, the vertical back window, the ridiculous overhangs. Of course, none of this has to do with the quality of your work. Rather, it is the subject matter.

    I suggest that you work your magic on an Interceptor. That is one Ford that could be tightened up and look very good as a coupe.

    The problem with the chop is that it looks older than the last RWD Cougar.

    sorta like this?


    otoh, I'd love to see what a Panther could be by cutting the overhangs to the bone...
    300hp 3valve 4.6v8 + 6speed...
    new body + interior...
    tho still doubt I'd use the Cougar name.

    Re: Mercury Cougar

    I'd like to see a Cougar based off the new Mustang like they were back in the 60s.
