Video: My Cougar's funny idle.. Help!

So I made a video of my Cougar...

Mainly, to note the funny idle. Turn your bass up about 1/2way on your speakers, and listen to the exhaust when I have the camera up against the bumper.

This is with a new cap, rotors, spark plugs, and wires.. Basically, the car farts.

Warning, large video

Try this one.

Exhaust is 100% stock, 1978 Cougar, lol.

You might have to let it load first, as it's a big file.

Listen to the exhaust when the camera is on the bumper.. every so often, it goes 'brr brr brr pftt pftttt brr brr brr brr pfttttt'

I had a '76 Cougar that made noises like that when I let off the throttle. Turned out to be a bad catalytic converter. Maybe yours is plugged.
