So, I'm 15, new to the site and what not... and was out in January of 2009 looking for a car, something cheap, but also something I could stand to drive in, which rules out things like Geo Metros. I asked my friends what kind of cars they wanted, they all wanted Aston Martins and Ferraris, when I asked them the cars they had a chance of actually getting... obviously different. 80's sedans, Dodge Neons, the Cavalier, 97 Firebird, that type of thing. So I realized I didn't care at all what my peers wanted and went off to find a 50's car, for under $900. I was REALLY HOPING for some idiot to be getting rid of a poor condition 56 Bel Air for cheap but no. Long story short I got really disappointed, thought I'd get a beater Neon, and went to Blockbuster to get a movie like Wayne's World, but in the parking lot was this matte red, dented and rusted 70 Maverick. I knew it wasn't the kind of car most people would stop to see, and more the kind one would write "clean me" on. But I really liked this car. I guess I stared at it for a while, cuz the owner actually got in while I was still staring. I found it was a Maverick, and looked until July to get one. I decided 71 was my favorite year, the later years had too much chrome for me, and the 70 seems a tad rare. Just as I was about to settle for a 77 pinto, I found a Craigslist ad, for a 71 Maverick. $500, sold to me by this biker guy. But it needs a pretty thorough restoration, I just got the battery in today, most of the electrical things work, lights, wipers, horn, etc. But there are limits to the knowhow of 15 year old dude, obviously, for example, where's a cheap place in ohio to buy the Maverick bench seats?
