    Default '86 Cougar XR7 sighting

    A customer dropped off an 18,000 mile '86 Cougar XR7 at our shop today. The very definition of "survivor", this car is a beautiful unmolested example. Can't imagine there are many left. Curious to know the breakdown of stick vs. auto XR7s if indeed its known. If anyone's interested I'll get some pics.

    That red one was an 85 XR-7. I doubt that was his.
