Today my trusty and only recently PITA Cougar turns 13 years old. The first photo I ever took of it involved shenanigans and it's helped define my girlish lifestyle ever since. As a birthday present, I got new Eagle GT 225/45ZR17 tires, and we'll count my decision against sending it to the crusher when the transmission case went as a present as well. My Cougars birthday is so well known, Excelcier decided to throw a party for it. After begging Lisa to skip Easter photos I was on my way to the nerdiest celebration of my cars life. There was no cake.
