May 29, 1998 When it comes to cyclicality, the Eastern religions have little on the Mercury Cougar. The Cougar began life in 1967 as the Mercury version of the sporty Ford Mustang coupe and convertible. Like the Mustang, it grew over the years into something that had little to do with the compact, performance-oriented original. By the time officials finally pulled the plug on the Cougar/Thunderbird tandem last year, the cars had become big, heavy, anachronistic coupes that sold about as well as they performed.

Upper Merion police first became suspicious when they noticed a trailer frequently parked at the Valley Forge Apartments carrying automobile parts. Their curiosity grew when they noticed a white 1987 Mustang with black doors and a black hood on the trailer. And when David Warner, a King of Prussia resident, reported his 1992 black Ford Mustang stolen, Upper Merion police were skeptical, said Lt. Ronald Fonock. The subsequent investigation resulted in charges of insurance fraud and criminal conspiracy against Warner and Anthony Giovannetti, the mechanic accused of helping Warner.

In his second Wild West episode in less than two years, a Doylestown Township man was robbed of more than $30,000 outside his home Sunday night, then survived a hail of bullets fired at him when he chased the robbers in his pickup truck, authorities said. The victim, Serge Tancrede, was arrested in 2006 after recklessly blasting away with a handgun at two suspected prowlers outside his house. Tancrede, 37, remains on a two-year pretrial probationary program from that episode. Bucks County District Attorney Michelle Henry said yesterday that she knew of no connection between the incidents.

When he was 83, Kerry Pacifico, whose dealerships include Philadelphia's Pacifico Ford, told me that driving his wife's 2002 Thunderbird made him feel a mere 73. Now that he's 88, Pacifico says he feels 78 and "maybe younger" when he drives the beautifully preserved convertible. "When I drive down to the Shore with the top down, it's an escape from reality," he says. For many people, the convertible is, in fact, a nostalgic escape back to their youth. Its insouciant imagery resonates most with the middle-aged and older, the folks who grew up when drop-tops were more in vogue, the people with vivid memories of their experiences in them.

The Ford Mustang is as American and as mythical as the western movie. It is a ubiquitous resident of our culture. During a half-century of continuous production, Ford has sold us nine million of them. (Mine was a 1973 gold metallic coupe with the 5-liter V-8 and the four-speed manual gearbox.) And those who haven't owned one have seen them countless times on the road and on the screen. (Remember the chase scene in Bullitt when Steve McQueen's Mustang became airborne on the streets of San Francisco?
