Police Car!

4.6
by Cougar Fan on May 20, 2014

I'm a Mopar guy, but I've always been a fan of Cougars, because of the name and the animal they represent. However, I was not prepared for what happened after I bought a 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7 30th Anniversary Car. I did not know it was a Police Squad Car in disguise with it's 4.6L OHC fuel-injected V8 engine, heavy-duty transmission, and heavy duty power disc brakes. The car even has the same skid-plates under the engine that the Crown-Vics have on cop cars! To round out the package you get a sport-tuned suspension and close ratio steering. I added police rated Goodyear Eagle Ultra-Grip tires. The car has been the most reliable I've ever owned. The '97 Cougar I just bought is my second one. The first one has 140,000 miles on it and still has like-new performance without using a drop of oil! I had to pick up a second one for storage so when this one dies, I'll still have one to drive every day. I can't say enough about the 1997 Cougars!
