I think mine might be the original (1966) Mercury Cougar back when it was a sport's car.

My answer is admittedly odd, but then, so am I. ;)

I have it. It's a rattletrap Sebring. Let me explain. My wife and I had a pair of minivans. My one had belonged to my father-in-law (of happy memory). The second week of December, the transmission ate itself, and the place where I had it towed (only one in the town) would fix, but it was prohibitively expensive. I work about 30 miles from our house, and to say the least, this complicated things. So, the next night was my council's monthly meeting, a friend asked how I'd been, just making conversation. I mentioned the van issue briefly. He said, oh, I might have a car to sell you. Long story short, he allowed me to buy it for a song. I'm just about to pass 8,000 miles on it since then. In that time, I've fixed struts and an exhaust leak, changed oil and added fluids. So, my dream car reliably brings me back and forth to work, helps me transport the younger three kids places, and in sunny weather, I can put the top down. I'm sure a lot of folks think it looks janky, but honestly, I am so happy with it's presence in my life that i've become very attached to it.
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the most precious blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said Throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory. Amen.

John Z. DeLorean designed '63 Pontiac LeMans Tempest (Motor Trend Car of the Year in '61 - stating it was the best thing to come down the pike since the Model T (slight exaggeration)) with a Super Duty Trophy 4 (half a 389 V8). 

The early LeMans ('61-'63) had a very innovative  2 speed independent suspension rear transaxle (to compete with the VW Bug meance). 

I like the innovation. 

The car in the clip probably doesn't have the transaxle, sounds like a 4 speed manual transmission.
Oh, where are the snows of yesteryear!
