If you wanted to sell something in the 1970s, Farrah Fawcett was a good asset to have your side. I remember this particular Mercury Cougar because an old guy on my block when i was growing up had one, but never seemed to drive it. But every day during the summer he would be out there washing it and in the winter he stored it inside. When he retired and moved to Florida he sold his car to a teenager who slowly but surely wrecked it. I remember walking past it and seeing it rot and thinking how sad it was to see it go downhill.
It was certainly not a car that Farah would have been caught driving.
