Cougar Support Group - Bigger & Better



  • barhenderbarhender Posts: 12
    I agree with malibu (great pics, sweet Kat)

    I have enjoyed this club through all phases of the blessed Cougar experience...from first recognition, through gut-wrenching anticipation of arrival, onto the thrill of feeling my back press against the bucket when hauling [non-permissible content removed] through serpentine highway...whoa, sorry 8p

    As with all worthwhile amenities, upkeep is necessary. This club has, from the beginning, always been an island of information, support, and entertainment...where do I give?

    fredly: no new mods, although 14,000, glich-free, highly enjoyed miles. Cougarfest? don't think so--got night school for programming--busy, busy, busy.

    I'm willing to chip in for the CSG!!!

    Also, who said that he/she was starting to learn to drive stick with their kitty? Well, I just wanted to say that you should expect to stall from time to time (or a lot at first). I've been driving my stickshift kitty for almost 2.5 months and I just stalled tonight coming back from the gym!!! I hate that, but the more you practice the better you will be. Tonight I stalled because I wasn't paying attention and let off the clutch at the light = ). Pretty sure it'll happen again.

    This is a post from NECO, perhaps this is another alternative? I have no idea what he'd charge for it, but if personal is only $5/month...I'd assume you'll get a better price than $515/yr.

    I own a webhosting bussiness. Id be glad to offer space to you NECO members for $5/mo. I'll add DNS hosting for $7. I will not hard limit your drive usage either. As long as you keep the porn/warez off the site you can fill it with as much legitimate stuff as you can... within reason of course. This offer is only for your personal pages... I wont extend this offer to anything comercial, we have packages for that. We will take checks or PayPal. Check us out at Current vhosts include,;;;;; and others... If you are interested please email us at so we can get your account set-up... Don't forget to tell us you are from NECO. I hope nobody views this as me spaming the group... I wont do it again if anyone has a problem with it... I just notice alot of people have free hosting and wanted to offer next to free hosting without all the banners... Hope I can help you guys.

    Malibu, any one else that received the new cupholder... When did you order your kitties? I'm trying to figure out if my new kitty made it in too early to get the redesigned center console. I ordered it in early March.

    You all are really fantastic. The email address to get ahold of us regarding any matter is

    Thanks everyone, we'll continue to do the best we can for everyone here!

    I tried to take a look at Malibu's new toy and got lost over in the NECO site. Ouch. It's so much nicer over here. (Bravo catscratch! Donuts, huh? Got my chuckle for the day.)

    MSW: We love ya man!!!

    CSG web costs: When you get an idea of who is in and how much, just let us know where to send the check Badulah.

    WOW! I never expected this kind of response. You guys and girls never cease to amaze me. Yesterday when I left the office I was majorly depressed about the web site, but now, because of all of you, I am thrilled and I feel motivated once again!

    We are currently investigating the web hosting service Catscratch posted. Once we receive all of their information we will determine if donations are needed.

    Again, thank you all for your continued support (I feel like an old Bartles & James commercial).

    Don't mean to be late chiming in, but I'll happily add my $$ share to the CSG as well. I certainly don't want to return to the days of anonymous car ownership again!
  • catscratchcatscratch Posts: 34
    This just in, hot off the phone wire....

    My Cat has come in!! ~does the New Cougar Arrival Dance~ woo hoo!!

    If only it wasn't the weekend. Because my dealership is closed on Sats(for the summer, grrr) I will have to wait till Monday. I just might have to take a trip down there today and see her....

    Long live the CSG!

    I found out that my Cougar alarm will set with the hatch ajar. But will sound if you open it ~15 seconds after it is set and you try to open the hatch.

    Also, never, ever play with you key fobs around your kitty. If you lock/unlock the doors one too many times or just continously play with FOB (busy hands) you can confuse the REM module and the system will not respond. Won't lock the doors or activate and consquently activate the alarm. I had to reteach her by getting the other keyfob and some sweet talking to get her to respond. Then the other FOB came back to life.

    Congrats and welcome to the owners club!!

    Try to remain calm until Monday. I know it will be hard, but i'm sure you can do it.

    Thanks! O and by the way, you still owe me for the detail job.

    My Cougar was ordered on April 5, and I got the new ones.

    I maintain a couple of websites on, which provides free web site space for non-profit organizations in the Rochester area. The people who run this web server may know of other "free" web servers closer to where you & stageleft live.

    Nice Car!! I think I could do without that badging on the top of the windshield, though. Other than that it's a sweet package.
  • badulahbadulah Posts: 961
    Thanks for the info. We will look in to it.

    Keep in mind that we will need a decent amount of space. Right now the site is 10 megs and growing. To really effectively get the members section up and running we will need at least 30 megs of space. I don't know if these free services offer that much.
  • coolchickcoolchick Posts: 174

    Pay for the detail service? Isn't that what brownies are for? :)

    But you forgot the milk.
  • dasaint1dasaint1 Posts: 230
    Can someone please post NECO's website address, so I can check out what this garbage is about regarding MWS bashing.


    Count me in for $$ donations towards our CSG website!!!
  • katlvrkatlvr Posts: 23
    I'm lovin it, I really hope you can get the space and I am also willing to donate.

    I don't know about you guys but although I want FMC to excel in Cougar sales I still get a little jealous when I see too many Cougars out on the road. I remember just a few short months ago when I was the only one, now I see so many everyday. I'm not special and exclusive anymore. (pouts)
  • katlvrkatlvr Posts: 23
    dasaint that's, there's alot of yahoos over there though.
  • badulahbadulah Posts: 961
    Do you, Yahoo?
  • badulahbadulah Posts: 961
    Ok, I just spent 15 minutes looking for the MWS bashing on the NECO board, and I couldn't find it. That board is to big and is way out of control. Can someone tell me what forum its in and when it was posted?

  • badulahbadulah Posts: 961
    I just wanted to post one more time today so I could wish all of you a safe and GREAT weekend. to those of you who have Cats: Enjoy them out in the beautiful weather. To all who are still waiting: I know how you guys and girls feel, but in the end the wait will have been worth it.

    I also wanted to thank all of you again for your support. The CSG is a success because of all of you. We may not be the biggest Cougar club, but I seriously doubt any of the bigger clubs have the sense of community we have. I'm really proud to be apart of this group, and i'm happy to know all of you.

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Thanks, I was actually moved by that one (sniff, sniff)! = )
  • jjmorrisjjmorris Posts: 13
    Go to the message board and find the thread "Cougar slump idles plant". It's pretty pathetic, this guy sends an email to MWS and gets upset that he gets a "form letter" style reply. I guess he expected a job offer in return for his brilliant observation that the Cougar needs more advertising.

    Have a great weekend all!!!

    Tomorrow morning we leave for our cruise and will be without my cat and the CSG. Actually, I think they have an internet cafe on board. But, I think I can do without this place for 1 week..........then again maybe not!!!!

    I like knowing that you have already been where I am headed. I am test driving a Cougar tomorrow although I have already pretty much made up my mind. I am seeing Black, Sports Group, V6, 5 speed. I expect a it will be a change from my Escort ZX2. Anything I should be looking for, other than as long a test drive as possible. I haven't seen many Cats around Ottawa, which on the one hand appeals to me but makes me wonder why.
  • halo_1halo_1 Posts: 27
    I don't post much, but I'm always here reading your posts. Count me in on the donation. BTW, is it tax deductible??? It's for a good cause...We give emotional support to those that are eagerly awaiting their CATS. You think the IRS will buy it???

    When I first saw the silver letters on the windshield I about died! When I ordered the special edition pkg. I had to check the order and initial it, I scratched the window badge box off and wrote "delete" next to it, so I was very suprised to see it. I picked the car up on Friday, drove it home, took the pictures for the CSG web site and immediatly had it removed on Sat. morning when they tinted the windows.

    Catscratch: Congratulations! It will be a rough weekend, but well worth the wait, hang in there!
    I did notice on the way home that I lost about 10 horsepower though!

    I just hope everything goes well at my dealership...I wanna make that DVD player deadline, which is Monday...

    I'm pretty busy this weekend, so that alone should help pass the time. Well, back to flipping through my brochure for the hundred millionth time. hehehe

    Have a great weekend all =)
