I could have probably done my power steering repair today and had a functioning Cougar, but I really felt like I should put some shakedown miles on the new engine before hitting the road for a multi-hour drive and an autocross competition :rofl:
This'll be Cougarfest #2 for the Bullitt. Too bad you're not sticking around for Sunday, Jason - you could co-drive.
I am really tempted to day trip it out and back on Saturday, but I'm running a 5k in the morning so I would get a late start. Also, I really want to get my Eibach springs installed, and this is possibly the first weekend I will have time to do that since December.
Driving down the road to my first Cougarfest...stop for gas...POP! POP!
Look underneath...blew out both gas tank straps.😕
Of course I was carrying ratchet straps around for months until I cleaned out the car last weekend so I had to spend an insane amount of money for some at a truck stop.
Back on the road with a car held together by ratchet straps!
Made it home.
Thank you all for making me welcome amongst the regulars.
You don't know how much I appreciate how easy it was to just hang out without feeling uncomfortable.
I will be back if ever possible, and will do anything I can to help maintain the tradition now that I know how things are done.
If anyone ever needs any help in the Cincy-Dayton area, let me know. (Until I move somewhere else😂)
