The latest version of the Cougar wasn't too swift in my opinion and apparently the market said so too. The first Cougars were built on the same platform as the Mustang, can history repeat itself....again?

It would be awesome if they did it right, especially if there are luxo options like sunroof and seat heaters.

Interesting idea, I've wondered the same thing myself. If they could update the styling of the '67-'68 cougars as sucessfully as they pulled off with the new Mustang, it'd be a winner imho.

I wish they would, but doubt it. They can't even handle Mustang production and demand.

Supposedly they are studying using the Mustang chassis for a 2-door lincoln.

That being said, I doubt they would also build a Merc on top of it.

That's almost correct, their real problem is too many car lines that don't sell.

You don't see the Japanese worrying they have too many lines. They're even still introducing new ones fairly recently (Scion etc)

I would love to see a new cougar... a creature comfort version of the Mustang

Toyota has itself, Scion (which only has three cars in its line-up so far), and Lexus (total of 3 lines). That's the most out of the big three asian co.'s. Honda and Nissan has 2 lines.

GM has Chevy, GMC, Pontiac, cadillac, buick, saturn, hummer... (7+ lines!!!)

If I remember correctly when Brad and Rob interviewed J. Mays in New York he said there would not be a Cougar
