1968 Mercury Cougar
As soon as I saw the LEGO Ideas gift with purchase ‘50s convertible I was impressed - more by the colour choice than anything else to be honest. New mudguard pieces in Dark Turquoise, now that is interesting.
So I got hold of one and then started thinking about what to build using the relatively restricted parts available in Dark Turquoise. Here’s the result - do you prefer the ‘50s or ‘60s?
I have always loved the Mercury Cougar, it’s like the Mustang’s older, more subtle big brother who wears more conventional clothes and is less brash about his sporting abilities. Way back when I used to occasionally play Gran Turismo, one of my favourite cars to tune and modify was a Cougar.
