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.

A $26,000 special edition Ford Mustang was stolen and 13 cars were stripped or damaged in the back lot of Signature Nissan sometime between 7:30 a.m. and 9 p.m. Thanksgiving Day, Plymouth Police said.

A 44-year-old motorcyclist from Blackwood was killed Wednesday night in a crash on I-495 in Wilmington, police said. The man, whose name has not been released, was run over by a car and a tractor-trailer after he apparently hit the rear of a car and was tossed from his 2008 Honda Goldwing bike, Delaware State Police said. The driver of the car and Greg Baxter, a 50-year-old biker from Lindenwold, also were hurt, but their injuries were nonlife threatening, police said. State police, who are investigating, gave following account based on preliminary information: At 9:30 p.m., the biker from Blackwood was northbound in the right lane on I-495 when he apparently struck the rear of a 2006 Ford Mustang driven by a 41-year-old Delaware man. The motorcyclist flew off the motorcycle and was hit by a 2006 Toyota Sequoia and a tractor-trailer.

This year's rendition of the Philadelphia Auto Show turns out to be a car cotillion of exceptional magnitude. Nearly a dozen 2015 cars and trucks will make their regional debuts at the show, which opens its nine-day run Saturday at the Convention Center. The debutantes range from the radically redesigned Ford F-150 full-size pickup and the brand new GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado midsize pickups to the Chrysler 200 midsize sedan, the Cadillac Escalade large SUV, and the latest coming of the iconic Ford Mustang.

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.

It seems like the most obvious question in the world: Why doesn't Ford bring back the original 1965 Mustang? After all, the first Ford Mustang sold 1.3 million copies in 2½ years, a record that remains untouched. Tom Scarpello had heard the question many times, and he knew the answer. Scarpello ran Ford's Special Vehicle Team from 1998 to 2004 and knew that the old Mustang body design couldn't meet today's federal safety requirements. "But that idea always stuck with me," Scarpello said.

Earlier this month, at the Chicago Auto Show, Kia debuted a brand-new hybrid compact crossover called the Niro. Coined in South Korea, the model name is not intended to evoke a mad dictator who fiddled while Rome burned. Rather, by some accounts, it is a play on the German term for the grade of steel used in the vehicle's roof and roof pillars. It is also a fashionably succinct title, and the product of a surprisingly complex process that is often fraught with problems. In the case of globally marketed cars, for example, the name can have unfortunate connotations in some markets.

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?

Authorities have arrested two Hazleton, Pa., men in an early morning robbery this month at a Blue Bell restaurant and bar. The incident led to Montgomery County Community College's being shut down for part of that day as police chased the suspects on college property. Tyrice E. Griffin, 41, and Juan Carlos Garcia, 20, were charged with eight counts of robbery and other offenses each, said Whitpain Township police and the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office. About 1:30 a.m. Nov. 4, police went to the Whitpain Tavern on DeKalb Pike after being alerted of a robbery in progress.

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.

"Tattoo Jerry" Schubert was against running the air-conditioning. As temperatures rose into the 90s Tuesday afternoon, four sweltering souls were well into Day 2 of a quest to outlast each other and win a 2011 red Ford Mustang. Last one still sitting inside it will get the keys, courtesy of WYSP (94 FM). Which is why Kensington's Tattoo Jerry was saying bring on the heat. "A.C. would make it too comfortable," said Schubert, 28. Taking him on were Nicolas "Trashman C" Seybold, 22, of South Philadelphia; Jessica "Smore" Smoyer, 22, of Pottstown, and Theresa "Treehugger" Moless, 31, of Glenolden.
