We've Upgraded

On Thursday, January 12th, we upgraded the Forum to the latest version. It was a major upgrade, so the Forum was down during the file upload, and once it was back up, it didn't have any of the cosmetic or functional modifications you're accustomed to seeing. We're done with the nasty part now, so things are almost back to normal. You may notice that the Forum is quite a bit faster at most tasks.

Here's what remains to be done:
  • The "scroll to top" extension we were using hasn't been upgraded for the current version of the Forum yet, so we haven't replaced it. There is another one that offers both top- and bottom-scroll that we'll install if a version compatible with the new Forum is released.
  • The "open external links in a new window" extension has not been upgraded yet, either. For now, you can right-click on a link and choose the "open in a new tab" option if your browser supports it.
If the display of the site isn't looking right, or you're having trouble, try clearing your browser cache first (Ctrl + F5 for most browsers).

  • The GT-E Registry
    The GT-E was only available for a few brief months in 1968. Total production would not have kept the assembly line busy for more than a half day. If you know anything about a GT-E, it is important, and this is the place to share it. The GT-E registry is maintained by Jim Pinkerton.

  • The XR7-G Registry
    There were only 619 XR7-Gs built. They were built along side the Shelby Mustang, and were available with every engine and transmission offered in 1968, (except the 427). This was the first Cougar to be a part of the Hertz Rent a Racer program. If you have any information about these rare cats, this is the place to share. The XR7-G registry is maintained by Royce Peterson.

  • The Eliminator Registry
    For two years the Eliminator roamed the streets looking for prey. Although you could get an engine available from Mercury in the Eliminator, the Cobra Jet 428 and Super Cobra Jet 428 were common under the hood. This was also the only Cougar to get the Boss 302. The Eliminator Registry is maintained by Dave Wyrwas.

  • The 1971 429 Cobra Jet Registry
    The last of the fire breathing big block Cougars were built in 1971. They featured the 429 Cobra Jet engine, and carried one of the highest factory horsepower ratings (370!) of any Cougar ever built. Sadly the times were not right and only a handful were built. The '71 Cobra Jet Registry is maintained by Mitch Lewis.
