Three Mercury Cougars at Three Valley Gap


On June 12th 2009 the Okanagan Mustangs and Fords car club had a cruise up to 3 Valley Gap in Revelstoke BC. After a great day of cruising we arrive at 3 Valley Gap Chateau for an evening of entertainment.
Upon arrival I ran into Robert Nowland and his Rocky Mountain Life Insurance 1969 Mercury Cougar. This was obviously destiny as I had just read about the Rocky Mountain Purple Cougars in April of 2009.
Linda Beauregard/Jackson was on the trip with her 1971 Cougar so we took the opportunity to take pictures of this rare occasion.
