    Ford Maverick featured on Big Easy Motors. Only came across this because it was a suggestion on YT.

    "$3,400 is a little bit more than I'd like to pay for a car as common as a Maverick;" where does this guy see all these Mavericks running around? I sure don't.

    Thanks for the warning, I made four or five 15 second jumps through and watched the last two minutes of auction.

    As Mike Finnegan refers to it, it's one of those "If we don't make this sale we'll lose the shop" type shows.

    I agree, the only reason I watched it was because it’s Maverick.
    I personally like the “I’m not spending 1k on chrome bumpers!” So in stead of painting the bumpers that came on it he spends a couple hundred on fiberglass bumpers.(n)

    I caught that too, the front looked like it was in nice shape, would have been easy enough to paint.

    just makes you wonder what else they cheaped out on and those headrests are the DUMBEST thing I have ever seen done to a maverick. I really like the paint job and the jelly bean reference lol its a rockin 70s paint job for sure and the side pipes are pretty cool

    The blue car they started with was already 5 lug, and they didnt even have to tow it. Just had to apply the bling!
