Put Another Way
Here we have the sister of the 1980-82 Thunderbird.
To my eyes, the cheap greenhouse works so much better on the Cougar than the T-bird. Part of it is the black window frames and no forced, unaligned vinyl roof, like this.
The front end, with quad headlights is obviously better than the dull vacant gaze of the bird with lights uncovered. Fight me. Regardless, viewed head on, it is truer to its immediate predecessor than the ‘Bird, (although I like the mostly non-illuminated wraparound marker lights).
