I regret not attending Fest before last year (especially back when my car still looked good), and with Cougar ownership shrinking by the day, its safe to say Fest is an endangered event. If we hope to have a future, we should probably start thinking about how to help people overcome the obstacles to attendance.

If your not attending, why not? What could change that would help you attend?

Just a bad weekend for me. I would’ve gone otherwise. First time I’m missing it since 2006.

Usually it's been health issues for my girlfriend, the last time it was in Columbus my car died on the way down. (Did make it to Mansfield ) and this year it's on my girlfriends birthday.

If you left coasters would recruit some new followers we could have a Cougarfest-West.
Actually, that may happen anyway because your going to be the only ones with cars that havent rusted out in another couple of years...

Well if its not the timing then its work or school. When those all align which does happen then it would be the part where I have 3 cars and the engine to all of them is either in a trailer, in the shed, or on the ground beside the shed. Not really feasable to show up to fest towing my car.

I can think of at least 4 cougars that have been towed to Fest in the past.

Yeah but my cars interior is in one shed. The engine and trans is in another shed. And its got a nice chunk of Jaguar dash in it. Right now it would be showing up towing a shell.

I'm on my 3rd engine in the car and finally just crossed 100,000 miles. Do the engines in these cars suck? Is that the consensus because I feel like this one is going to go too

They only suck if you ever let the oil light come on. All it takes is a split second for our engines to lose oil pressure, and then its a ticking time bomb. But if you frequently check the oil, our engines are pretty reliable. Other then certain accessories like the alternator and power steering pump.

Pretty sure some of these cars have made 2 to 3 hundred thousand. Doesnt suck unless you dont treat them right. All cars are that way though.

Mine spun a bearing at 114,000 miles, with regular maintenance. So who knows...
