By 1998 monthly meetings were being held at Jim's Harley Diner at 11959 95A Avenue in Surrey and the club was really taking shape. Members now received a one-year subscription to Street and Strip magazine free of charge and in March, Alan Laary became the new VP and Lorne the new Secretary. Due in part to excessive noise at Jim's, meetings moved to Garry T's pub at Scott Road and 72nd Avenue and despite the fact that the club encompassed all FoMoCo products, most members were Cougar owners so it was decided to again change the name and club logo --Fordnutz Cougar Club was born. In May the Cougar Bucks program was introduced for participating in Fordnutz meetings and specific events. Membership now stood at 24.
The Vancouver Motorsport Show at the Pacific Coliseum in March featured Scott Ferguson's 68 XR7, Caroline Laary's 67 and Rick Tesan's 69 428 CJ.
The Port Angeles pier is a beautiful venue. Here's Caroline again with her 67 next to Scott's 68 XR7 at Mustangs & Cougars at the Pier in April
The same three cars participated in April's Vancouver Classic & Motoring Show at BC Place.
Here's a young Scott looking to save a Cougar and a young Lorne taking in Tom The Tire Guy's Mothers' Day Show.
In May, Scott had his Cougar "dinged" by a Kenworth, sustaining $4,000 damage. This was shortly after his Mustang was stolen and damaged in a high-speed police chase. Not a good month.
