    In Issue 5, the editors have added a new department called “Cougar Marketplace,” which will follow recent sales of classic Cougars. This month, we look at the recent auctions held in Arizona and Florida. As we near the end of Volume 1, we’re looking forward to Volume 2. In Cat Tracks, co-editors Bill Basore and Rich Truesdell review the past year and look at what the future may hold for Legendary Cougar Magazine.

    You will also find two very useful tech articles detailing volt meter installation and a three-wire tachometer installation perfect for high-energy ignition systems.

    Of course, Issue 5 is all about your cars, including a beautiful Madras Blue 1968 XR7-G owned by Scott Ferguson, the one-of-344 1969 390-powered XR-7 convertible owned by Steve and Zana Goulding, and last but not least, our Issue 5 cover girl, the 1972 XR-7 convertible owned by Gene Mullenberg.
