Loving both your collections Minichamps & Jeroen - I challenge BORMAC to show us his 2wd collection all lined up too. Jeroen - is that a RaceCraft shell on the Cougar 2nd one in on the back right?

Heres my one & only Cougar 2 - its an ex-Bormac works car :)

I was going to run it, but i'm rather worried about breaking any of the rare parts (especially rear wishbones) - as such i'm not sure whether to keep it or not, anyone fancy a trade for a NIB Cougar 1 or TopCat?

The CougarII holds a special place in my heart - not because I owned or raced one, but because I watched some of the development of the car at our local club. I raced at an indoor club in Irchester, Northants - not too far from the Schumacher factory. The guy to beat was a lad called Steve Swan - who I believe worked for Schumacher & would be accompanied on the race night by one of the Schumacher designers (not sure on his name - but he left to work in France at one of the car companies) I can remember Robin Schumacher & Phil Davies turning up sometimes too. Anyway - I would have been racing a Cougar 1 at the time & we were facinated by these special white (prototype) parts that would appear on Steve's car. Steve's car was always so quick - & it was almost a for-gone conclusion that he'd win the A final every night - the shell he used at one point, i'm pretty sure was the either the one used in the promo picture..... the one replicated by both minichamps & CATS 8)

P.S; Steve is now a session drummer - he made a brief return & raced at our local club a few months back.... I beat him :D

Yes, I think that was the Racecraft shell 8) It was the shell I used when I converted my TopCat to run a Mardave front end.... many many years ago....

I hate you all! :lol:


Seriously impressive collection there! There's something about those earlier cars that makes me drool in a way that the newer ones just don't!

Derbydan i have the shell you are talking about still new and uncut. Infact I sent it to Thomas for reproduction. At some point he'll have a buck so if you're keen on reliving old memories get in touch with Thomas (aka-BUGLE).

Well, seeing as this has become a "piddling-in-the-wind" Cougar (2) collection thread, here's a quick pic of mine.
