If it is repairable that just makes it a bigger bargain!


I'm going to ditch the pair of seats at the back, and replace the console with a 2-seater (either buy one or more likely fabricate my own) and move it further back. The plan is to get her ready over the winter for next summer, and to race it in the season of Basic Races over here for a bit of fun

I'll keep this thread updated as and when things get done Hope you guys like it, I think with a more modern console design in black, and a decent clean she'll be a bit of a looker!

Cheers

Paul
Hi Paul
Looks like the perfect setup for Guernsey racing next year.
Looking forward to seeing it on the startline...

Tony

cheers Tony!

I've seen your Cougar in the marina, looks like a serious weapon! Thought about racing it?

That's fair enough, I wouldn't want to cook a 350 with no warranty! Hopefully I can find a decent used motor so warranties won't be an issue haha...
