Eliminator Downunder



Compliments of Comp Elimn8r @ http://classiccougarcommunity.com

Hey Guys, this looks like a great site so I thought Id better introduce myself now my Eliminator has arrived. 
Nothing to get too excited about because it looks like a heap of junk but most of my projects usually start the same way. My cougar has been in Australia a while now and originally came from Arizona, it needs a full resto but has potential with options like sunroof, trim, colour etc. 
Im in the process of finishing a XA GT coupe which has been on the go for nearly 5 years and should hopefully be back on the road before the end of 2013.
I dont know a lot about cougars except for the similarities in Ford 351 motors, fmx's and 9" diffs like the aussie GTs. 
This one will be a long term job for me so I will probably ask lots of questions but will also try to contribute where I can.
cheers Brett

Thanks fellas, I dont know anything about the stateside history of the cougar but will ask who i brought it from.
i got it from a bloke in QLD that imports mustangs, muscle cars etc all the time.
It also seems like it has a sister car over there somewhere with the same options?
The title, date 2001 and name from Arizona is all i have atm but will try and get more details.
Yes its a BIG job I know, but its a hobby and it keeps me out of trouble!
ive done up a few FORDS over the years inc XW XY XA & XE Falcons but never a USA car.
Condition wise the cougar would be most work for me to date, because its the body, paint, everything really!  :help: 
Anyway, I can enjoy driving the XA while I plug away at this one, so no turning back now.
Cheers

Damn! Impressive! This was all done in AU? That sounds like a whole lot of fun getting the parts you need, especially two cars to build one.
