My thoughts exactly. If it wasnt for those dumb suits at Ford the probe could be still alive and succesful.96 PSE said:The probe was such a sleek car. I think it looks much better than the Cougar. It still turns heads..bring back the Probe..give us the J-spec motors..market it better. And while there at give us the Puma too!!
In 1965, not 1999, when Ford/ Lincoln-Mercury was developing this car. The Mustang was competing against the Corvette, the Camaro hadn't come out yet. Ford wanted something to compete against the Jaguar XKE. Something sporty with European styling. They came up with the Cougar hence "the cat" on the car. How do I know all of this I read automotive books, magazines, watch the History channel and Speedvision. BTW I owned a 67 Cougar XR7, fast car.2ksport said:
