Today I was pumping gas and these 2 kids (13-14 years old) was walking by my car and i over heard them talking. Both of them was saying how sweet my car looked and were trying to see what kind it was. they all walked around it just talking to each other not to me. the only badge on my car is the back mercury symbal. anyway the one kid was like i dont know and the other one said i know what that is its a OPEL. a OPEL my coug doesnt look like a OPEL. i laughed but i didnt get a chance to talked to them to correct them. oh well so everytime they see a coug their going to think its a opel lol. i didnt even think opels were street legal in the us. just thought id share that with everyone. has anyone else had there car mistakened for a nother car?

Mines been called an eclipse the most. But I hate it when people say its slow just cause its a cougar especially w/o looking under the hood first!

if you think about it, our cars do resemble the previous gen eclipse wherein the body is similarly round and the hatch have a similar shape. but our unique tailights, edges, creases and headlights make the cougar what it is

I park my 99 next to my mom's 03 eclipse at work(family biz) and whenever I say something about my cougar, fools say "where at?, all I see is a couple of eclipses".

When I first bought my car (July/Aug 1998) a guy asked me if it was some sort of new lexus. I turned and said, I'm 18 not 40. He laughed and asked what it was. I've heard jag a few times aswell, but that was a classic comment. There were VERY few cougars driving around in 1998 with our stlye, it was great getting all the heads to turn when I was 100% stock.

My friend Carlos always screws up and calls it a Jag. I always correct him but it doesn't help. So now the rumor at the club is I drive a Jag. Apparently I make more money then I thought I did.

I've had Porsche too, but I think the poor old lady was blind in one eye, and needed new glasses
