Name this car

I have no idea.  Guessing something homemade.

  1. I'm not familiar with this exact example, but I can provide some background and history on these cars. I'm interested in knowing more about this photo (who, when, where, etc.) and will gladly share my knowledge on some of the other cars.

    Feel free to email me: ohmdr@comcast.net

    Thanks.

    1. Hey Darren, you're the one Geoff mentioned in his email reply to me, right? I see your Cougar is shown in the FF story on Cougars.

    2. Ward,

      You are correct. I am the Darren that Geoff mentioned in his email reply.
      My Cougar (the color photo) and story are posted on Forgotten Fiberglass.

  2. I sent the post link on to Geoff Hacker at the Forgotten Fiberglass site. He says it's a 1955 Cougar, and sent a link with articles about it:

    He asked if you'd contact him and let him know what yearbook (school and year) it came out of (if you know).

    1. Oops, the link he sent didn't work. Here's one that I verified works (searched the FF site for "Cougar"):

  3. We have photos of several cars. but none are a match to the Cougar that Jaybird has posted here. This is exciting information for us, as it shows another example of the car, with various trim and configuration differences. I'm hopeful that we can learn more about this example and add that to our Cougar research file.

  5. Thank you very much Jaybird for finding and posting this photo.
    I've started to research this and hope that we can identify who these gentlemen are and hopefully make contact with one or more of them to learn more.
    I'll gladly share once we have news.

    Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the Cougars and I'll do my best to answer your questions.

    Thanks again.
