Thinking about trading in my Firebird for this Cougar> Click
The coug has high miles but is immaculate in and out. I've wanted a Cougar for so long. You think it's a good Idea? I'm just now 18 and the thing is if I did this my dad wouldn't pay my insurance anymore and I'd have a small car payment. Just for the record I bought the 'bird myself with my own money.

Looks a lot like my Cougar - except that one is probably a return-style, which would RULE.

Hey, if you want it, why not?

Looks like a 5-speed, pretty much the only way to go on a Cougar. If you can afford it, I'd say go for it. Remember, your Firebird probably gets about 15-18 mpg, while the 5-speed Coug can get 21-28 mpg if you keep out of it (its hard to keep your foot out of it though, the car is too much fun.)

Not to mention, if you like twisty roads, the Cougar will PWN your Firebird.

Like I said, if you can afford it, go for it. :thumbsup:

What's wrong with your hater dad? I guarantee you the Cougar is gonna be cheaper to insure than the Firechicken. But yeah, thats a ton o mileage on the clock there, I'd definitely talk 'em waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyy down.
