History
Purchased new in Oct. 1999. My mid-life crisis car (I am sooo far away from a Ferrari's price).

First car I joined forums & clubs for, first car I raced (yes, ON THE TRACK), first car I modified, first car I've shown, ... I'm never selling it, now it'll be my "project car" instead of my "Oh no, that $$ was supposed to buy ___ instead of fixing a problem car".
1999 Mercury Cougar (White with purple pearl)

Modifications

Drivetrain
CAI (yes, it goes outside the engine bay!)
Replaced Upper & Lower Intake Manifolds and Throttle Body with Ford SVT parts.
Interior
Replaced Mercury's infamous "cup-spiller" center console with a 2002 center console that has real cup holders.
Purple LEDs in lock and window buttons. Some day I want to do all my originally green interior LEDs in purple.
Exterior
Clear (not orange) side-markers.
Repaint (after hurricane) with purple pearl in the clear coat.
Shorter antenna.
Audio
After my daughter blew my original speakers, Pioneer head unit & Kicker stock-sized speakers.
Wheel and Tire
Street: 17" ST-200 Mondeo wheels, waiting for new tires. Was 17" Enkei Evo 6 wheels with 225/45ZR17 Sumitomo HTR Z II tires.
