  1. My husband and I have 2 classic Cougars. A 1967 black cat which was a CA car – no rust and and 1970 Cougar XR7 convertible an east coast car – aka rust bucket. It took us 3 years to restore – new floor pans, trunk, quarter panel etc.
    Wish we were on the west coast, would love to go the the show.

    • Wow that’s a lot of work you folks put into it. 3 years is a long time but now you have a great car. Wish you were out here too so I could see them.

      When I bought my current car I got rid of all of my others….well it took me a couple years ut I did.

      And I like the new one (a CTS), it has some character for a new ride bbut not like a 67 cougar. That is character.

    • Everytime I look at your site I find more to enjoy.

      I went to college with expectations of acting, which I did. But I also became intrigued by lighting design and eventually directing. My Uncle was a lighting designer for some theaters in San Francisco and later did industrial light design lighting a downtown refurbishment in Kansas ity, street lights in a mall and such. So actually I got hooked when I visited him one summer when I was about 12.

      Eventually I moved on to work that could pay the bills. Yep.

      I retired when I was 52 and took a position as Director of a non-profit focused on kids and families, mostly public policy stuff. Not lighting for sure, but my directing skills always served me well.

      I retired a 2nd time at 55 after my mom had a stroke. And then I started having a string of medical misadventures of my own. So I have stayed retired.

      I definitely miss the theater and lighting. You can do such amazing things. I am sure computers have taken over much of it. We used a computerized system with big “cards” that were kind of like mini mixer boards. But computers in theater applications was just starting, I can’t imagine what the lighting booth in a major theater must be like now.

      Thank you again for sharing your stories.
