I think this is the correct catagory to be in... Does anyone remember the NASCAR Cougar that Roush built in the late 80's early 90's? I know they built the lincoln Mark VIII in a stockcar but after they had problems with downforce they re-bodied it into a cougar.Any pics,details?

What is Bojangles? lol
Come down south and you will find out.

If memory serves the Cougar won either 12 or 24 hours of Daytona that year.

I miss the days of "stock cars" looking like their actual counterparts, and blatant tobacco advertisement....anybody notice how energy drinks are the new cigarettes in that regard? I wonder what happened to the NASCAR cougars or cougar bodies at least?

The Roush cars ran in the IMSA GTO class. The flat hooded cars ran V6's whily the cars with the hood scoop ran V8's.

I saw the Whistler cars run live in 1991 at Heartland Park in Topeka. :)

Thanks for the replies! I guess you just have to ask the right people. The Yarborough car was the one I kind of remembered. Jack Roush still owns the whistler car. Rayo,Nice shots with the green armco in the background! Could only be one place like that, Road America! Boy that paint looks terrible when you're trying to buff it off the door panel...:( Stay cool, Bosscat40.
