New Member former NHRA Champ

Greetings Fellow Members:

I am trying to locate my former ride the infamous "Preperation H" (H/MP)
1971 Maverick that competed in the MP ranks of NHRA drag racing in the early 70's. I sold the car to its new owner ( from memory, Elwood Robinson of Newark DE ) in spring of 1974 just before completion of my new gasser a ford powered I/Gas Pinto. Anyone who can assist me in finding the Maverick, please respond to me when convenient.

Warmest Regards,

Bruce Sizemore

Welcome to the board Bruce. Not that I know anything about the car, but do you have any pics of it you could post?
Good luck on your venture!

I had that pic saved. I am sure all here would love to hear the story on that car. Unfortunately I don't have any leads for you.

Welcome to the board. I googled your name and NHRA. Must've been one helluva time.

Welcome to the board. I hope you find your Maverick - if not the original one, maybe you can find one to start a "reproduction" Prep/H.

Good luck and congrats on your success in racing.
