Bryan Adams said it best in his Summer of ’69 song, ” the times are changin, look at everything that’s come and gone.”
CATS Classic Cougar Club is getting ready to celebrate once again an important milestone in Mercury Cougar history when the third year of production brought several new additions to the Cougar lineup! New performance packages, the very first convertible model and the introduction of the Eliminator just to name a few!
CATS invites YOU to save the date and join us at the 50th Anniversary Show ‘Summer of 69’ Celebration in Auburn, Indiana - June 21 & 22, 2019.
Cruise on into Auburn Indiana on I-69 . Host Hotel information is yet to be determined and will be announced soon. All Cougar years are invited and the 69 will be highlighted. We are in the early stages of planning, but have the general weekend outlined. Members and Non-Members are all welcome!
We will be doing a Cougar cruise in the Indiana countryside down some back roads past Amish farms and maybe a cover bridge or two and end up at a lunch destination. Friday evening plans are for a 69 themed party. Yes! that means bring out your inner hippie and dress the part with the bell bottom pants and peace signs, and a few flowers. Maybe even a military uniform. Whatever you feel represents the summer of 69.
Downtown Auburn Indiana will block off their Courthouse square for our Cougar show! Lots of paved parking in the streets with a grass lawn and some shade trees. Visit the downtown merchants and local eateries. The show is for “all” Cougar years and will highlight the 69 coupe and the introduction of the convertible & Eliminator. Saturday evening will be an awards banquet dinner. We have a couple good venues in mind were working on.
You’re on your own and invited to extend your stay - There are many great transportation related museums in the area, so check them out before you head back home!
