Help Spider or Cougar - which is most common?

Hi Everyone,

I'm putting up this poll to try and resolve an arguement between me and hubby!!
I have just picked up my beautiful black Spider last Friday and he drives a very nice Ford Cougar. Neither of us covets the other's car but we've been debating which is the most common. So, please vote for the one that you see most of on a normal basis.

(Obviously I think that the Spider is less common and better bred than a Ford)

cheers

Hard to say, they're both quite rare...

Re: Spider or Cougar - which is most common?

I'd say they were both relatively rare, but for different reasons.

One is a new softop that's only just out on the market.
The other is out of production and Ford didn't shift that
many of them anyway.

Re: Spider or Cougar - which is most common?

Depends which Spider you mean, I see loads of the previous model so I've voted for the Spider, but I have seen quite a few of the new ones too, but that shouldn't be too surprising as I live ten minutes away from Mangoletsi...

I love Cougars, I had a black V6 for a while, it was great fun. It sounded lovely too Ford should build a new one instead of farting about with a bean can topped Focus

I think you get to see more Spiders on British roads. But perhaps I am biased

Re: Spider or Cougar - which is most common?

I think Cougar but I'm surprised I don't see more in view of how good they look. Needs a bigger engine though - now put the Alfa 3.2 engine in and...

Re: Spider or Cougar - which is most common?

See Cougars all the time. Nice cars, was going to get one for a while, but the milage I do meant I had to get a diesel, which is when I got the Alfa

I reckon I made the best choice

Re: Spider or Cougar - which is most common?

Definitely see far more Spiders than Cougars.

But I prefer to think that makes them 'popular' rather than 'common'.

Re: Spider or Cougar - which is most common?

I'm sure there are more Spiders about than Cougars.

Mainly because the Cougar is a god-awful looking thing! Like a badly inflated Puma - although I like Pumas.

Just my humble opinion...

I don't reckon you could call the Spider common though.

Probably try to blank out the F*** C***** which is only a mild improvement on the previous model, the (rectal) probe.
