Darksider's Realm

(this is not a place for lazy video game freaks. We Darksiders have been around doing our thing for decades before the mindless couch blobs latched onto the term Darksider)



DARKSIDER In the world of automotive hobbyists a Darksider is one who modifies and or customizes any and all sorts of vehicles. The Darksiders are in a class of their own simply because they endeavor to be different and do things that others would not attempt for a number of reasons mostly being related to a lack of ability and fear of non conformity.

This is a forum for people who think outside the box in everything they do. It doesn’t matter if you are modifying or building from scratch. It doesn’t matter what brand or brands of vehicles or components you are using. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a mini car or a bus.

We will not be asking you for donations or any kind of monetary payments. We will be asking for help in terms moderators and encouraging you to spread the word and add to our membership.

    Poor poor Cougar

    Post  Boilermaker on Mon Dec 27, 2010 7:38 pm

    This past summer I purchased a bunch of T-bird parts from Dave for my (wife's) 1989 Cougar XR-7, with the supercharged 3.8L and 5-speed. I didn't manage to get the parts installed before winter, but I did managed to get other issuees fixed before the cold hit. Tonight a young man in an F-150 backed into the driver's side and re-arranged the poor car. The driver's side door is caved in the and the left rear quarter is really bashed in. I'm not sure what to expect with this much damage on a car that is almost 22 years old. It has certainly been a dependable car.... it just seems to attract pick up trucks.

    Oh what a Bummer Man...

    I don't and did not have any good doors. I do know where there are some I think but this ain't the weather to go looking for them. Sorry to hear about this Man...

    front or back

    A friend asked if it was the front quarter. I said. "I have two fresh fenders ready to go on so it couldn't be the front. I need to drive up to Coldwater Michigan tomorrow to pick up some snowmobile parts; so I have to at least get the door to latch. Also, my wife wasn't too happy about seeing the Cougar in such shape even though she doesn't drive it any more.

    Thanks Dave!
    I am researching my options now. I'm looking for a 89 or 90 Cougar to transfer the XR-7 goodies into. I'm also looking for another Cougar XR-7. And I'm looking for a early fox body Capri/Mustang, since this will be my daily driver outside of the motorcycle season. I would also consider a 1999-2002 Ranger but they are a bit more expensive than I would like to spend right now.
