While I did not get a chance to see this Boss Powered 1969 Mercury Cougar in person, I am sure it was one of the hottest muscle cars that attended the 2021 Hot Rod Drag Week. You do not see many naturally aspirated 8-second cars even at that event.

The Gulf Stream Aqua 1969 Mercury Cougar packs one of the Jon Kaase monstrous Boss 9 engines, a 547 cube Boss to be exact. That engine makes 860hp out of the box, but running 8.7 second passes at over 153mph on motor is still crazy.
