A parking lot is a parking lot is a parking lot—unless it’s the Summit Racing parking lot. On any given day or time, the lot outside a Summit Racing store can turn into an impromptu mini-car show, depending on who’s stopped by the store. Each Wednesday, we’ll share our parking lot find of the week—another benefit of being Powered by Summit Racing Equipment.

We’ve done the Chevy, Ford, Mopar thing for last few weeks of Lot Shots (Chevelle, Ranchero, GTX). This time around, we’ll stay with the muscle theme but go slightly off the beaten path. We spotted this second-generation Mercury Cougar (1971, we believe) waiting patiently on its owner in the Summit Racing Ohio parking lot. The second-gen Cougar is distinguishable by its larger front grille and four exposed headlights. This one packs a 351 Cleveland engine.
