PostSubject: INTRODUCE YOURSELF   Fri Apr 22, 2011 8:34 am

I've had a word with Ian and he's given the go ahead for this thread. We thought it was a good idea and we hope you do too.

There's two reasons for this thread.
The first being a real time running total of active members because allthough it states 297 members on the portal page it would be good to know how many of those are actually active on the site.
So when you do post in here remember to put the appropiate post number at the top.

The second and possibly most important one to the club is an introductory thread. A place where new members could be encouraged to post up and say hi and tell us all about themselves and their Cougar.
But not just new members. All of us should introduce ourselves on here because if you think about it, although we've been talking to each other within the club for a long time we don't necessarily know each other very well.
So come on everyone, lets get to know each other and encourage new members to be active within the club and show them that we really are a friendly if not slightly bonkers Laughing bunch of people and feel free to include a pic of your cat.

I'll start.

Hi everyone
I'm Nick and i own a green 2.0L Cougar. I've had her for about 2 years and swore i'd never modify her......yeah right......once you've got the bug eh ?
Here's a pic of how she looks now.....


For my job i'm a home shopping delivery driver so if you order your grocery's from Asda it could be me bringing it too you Wink
I've been on SCC for a couple of years now and the powers that be saw fit to make me the Forum Clean Up Fairy so watch out for my deleting wand lol!
Nick



Anyway, that's mine done so come on you lot, that's all you need to do so lets get the newbies involved in the club and show them it's a great place to be.
One post per member and please remember the number at the top of your post. Remember, it's serves a purpose. Thanks guys Very Happy

So.........there's only 5 admin and 2 well established members using the club at the moment then Question Question Question Rolling Eyes

Come on guy's' where's the rest of you ? The amount of hours Ian put's into the club to keep it running surelly warrant's all of you to contribute to this thread.
Over the last few months we've been getting down hearted about the lack of response from new members when one of us post's a welcome message. This thread is an attempt to involve people registering on SCC and get them involved in the club.
Ok perhap's it is a bit cheesy to say "Hi, my name's........." and to have to introduce yourself to people you've been talking to for years. But do you know everyone's name on here? I know i don't.
Ian's currently in the process of designing a new site, not just for himself but all of us. If he was to look at this thread and see the lack of interest and think "what's the point now", i for one would be gutted.................would you ?


So please, take a coulple of minutes to post a Hi and tell us your name. Even if that's all you do, it's better than nothing at all. Out of 298 registered members there just has to be more than 7 people interested enough to keep the club going.
After all, what's the alternative to this FREE site if we lose it Question Ok it would probably never happen.............





































..........................would it Question Question Crying or Very sad

Hi I'm Wayne (Wilko27) and I currently own a Blurple V6 of which I love and have kept fairly standard apart from updated brakes what haven't exactly worked out due to warped discs after 3 months , and I have changed front door speakers and stereo that's it so far.
And here she is


I joined about 9 months ago, and I was, don't laugh, driving a 1.8 Citroën Xantia, but whilst looking for an alternative to this mode of transport I spotted a Cougar on Autotrader and once the decision had been made to buy one I found SCC. You guys on here have been invaluable to me, especially Ian, he's saved me a fortune in garage bills.
I also have recently purchased an 1998 Mondeo ST24 (Greeney) which i purchased for myself for when my wife takes ownership of my Cougar when or if she passes her test.

Once again Ian has already helped me out with 2 problems i have with my ST24, saving me money again, so once again many thanks Ian.
I work for a IT supplier at the moment in the Warehouse, and have been married to my lovely Wife Rox for 4 years now.

Thanks guys
Wayne.

Helloooo I'm Tim aka WildV6, I have been a forum member for over a year or so...possibly longer...my memory is like a sieve! lol



I have owned my Coug for almost 4 years, bought it completely standard and have made a few mods, like:

Lowered on PI springs 30mm
MIJ Full Sport exhaust system with quad exits
BK 17 inch alloys
Pipercross Induction air filter
Plus a few cosmetic changes - ie. side repeaters, chrome cougarhead badges, tinted headlight covers, rear tail light covers etc.

I am a civil servant and work for ....ahem!....The Met Office! (please no weather remarks! lol)

I have made some great friends on here as well as on the UKCOUGAR.COM site, which both clubs do get together every now and again.

Ok, that's enough about me......next please

She's a 2.5 V6 2000 Cougar, bought it a couple of years back, payed a good 5k in euros and she's worth every cent.
All standart except for an Apexi air filter, 7 inch LCD head unit and Xenon headlights.

About me, well I'm a chief officer on a container vessel, which means I get seasick for a living yo ho ho

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everybody on this forum, lots of help from you guys and gals. special thanks to Ian for all his helpful tips, and of course Kerry for her kind heart.

P.S. Ian don't you give up on the new forum look, I'm waiting for it like christmas!

Number 13? What a Face
I'm Jacqui, and I'm married to Rob who's a club member but doesn't come on here (doesn't like all this PC stuff). Laughing

We have an ebony V6 called Kat & a fosty - both are on my signature at the bottom of mypost.
Rob likes to keep Kat nice & shiney but as we have a huge lime tree outside our house it sometimes feels like a losing battle against the tree sap.

Rob is an electrician & I'm a kept woman. We're both into body modification as well as Cougar modification.
We have 2 Boerboels who are our babies.

Hello all together

My name is Silke and I come from the northern part of Germany and the most wonderfull city called Hamburg. I bought my laser red cat 10 years ago and I never regret it. The Cougar meanwhile is part of my life because I am a moderator of the biggest german cougar forum and also admin of the euro-neco-forum. Together with my website it´s a real second job sometimes, but I love it Smile

My cat and I have experienced dire straits (e.g. broken engine) but we also have a lot of fun together (e.g. Cougarfest). That bind together Wink

Some details of my RedCougar V6 Racing Edition:

- No Limit frontspoiler, sideskirts and rearspoiler
- White sidemarks
- Self-luminous rear numberplate from 3M
- Rims: TSW Imola 7,5x16" with 225/45/16 tyres Falken FK452
- 35/35 mm lower suspension setting by Eibach springs
- Aluminium pedals
- Aluminium handbreak
- Short shifter
- "Stratos-silver" painted interior
- Cougar logo tribal on the rear window
- Custom cougar front & rear emblem
- Exhaust: stock
- Engine: stock
- Audio: stock
- and not forgetting ... two silver racing stripes



and my mini RedCougar on a scale of 1:18



That´s all ... at the moment Wink

Hi all, My name is Mac from Torquay. I have recently purchased a Laser Red Cougar 2 .
She's a great car & the first that I have ever owned where I actually want to look after her properly ( I've been driving 28 years ). She does need some TLC which I intend to give her as and when money & time lets me.

It's great to find some enthusiasts that help each other & I look forward to meeting some of you in the near future.
When I'm not drooling over the cougar I'm usually messing about fixing or building PC's and have a you tube site dedicated to Retro gaming in particular the Amiga Scene. Yes, I'm giving my age away ( nearly 49 ) but still feel 21 ish.
Cheers Mac
