Today is my Cougar’s build date, April 24, 1967. It turns 50 today. For a treat, I dropped it off to get aligned. I have to say, the courtesy inspection notes from the alignment shop were pretty funny “Oil everywhere”, Air conditioning “two windows”, Interior “rough shape”, radiator “coming apart”. Way to kick a car while it’s down.

All in all, nothing I didn’t already know, but it’s good to see what other eyes see as well. Glad I didn’t miss anything, which is tough to do on a car that needs everything. Well, except for wheels, tires, and front suspension/brakes.
