I’ve only been here a few days and came here because I’ve always liked the Maverick/ Comet Line Up. My brother and I grew up being avid sports car fans and both later became 60’s Mustang fans. I’ve owned three 1967 Mustangs and my brother Steve owned his own 67 as well. At the same time we’ve always admired the Mavericks. Time passed on and we both did what dang near everybody does and we got rid of our cars. I eventually got an 89 LX 5.0 that I did the WORKS to and drove that for 10 years but I got rid of that 10 years ago to get the truck that I have now. Here’s to kicking myself in the butt yet once again. It’d be real nice to have a sports car back in the works again at some point. I mean, I’ve had a little fun with my 94 Silverado by replacing the worn out 350 with a 383 stroker, beefing my 4L60E transmission up and installing a 2200 rpm stall with a 3:90 geared locker out back ……but it just aint the same….ya know? My brother, on the other hand, managed to get his hands ahold of a 1972 Maverick. He drove it for a couple of years and then he made plans for it that were bigger than his wallet and after taking it all apart ….the rebuild stalled out. He sold it later on and it ended up in a wrecking yard some years afterward. If given the opportunity I'd buy one myself as I've always admired these cars. With that being said, I spend a lot of my time now building in scale. Over the last 39 years I’ve gotten a lot better at it and really try to concentrate on realism and appeal. It does cost a lot less than the real thing and I get to create dream rides somewhat but what I don’t get out of the deal is the opportunity to drive what I create. It does seem to fill somewhat of a void however. With that being said, I was going to see about doing something a little different here on this forum. Being that I build in scale, I’ve acquired two Jo-Han Ford Maverick kits that I’ve been dying to build. One has never been built and the other one is a glue bomb that someone else tackled and that I need to take apart and re-do. If you all are up to it, I’d like to start a thread on Dyno Don’s 1970 Maverick. I’ll be paying all of the attention to it that I would on an actual car so this won’t be one of those “Naa Naa there I did it” builds. I use a lot of aftermarket items and use a lot of the skills I’ve acquired over the last almost 4 decades. IMO this is just the place to do this because I’ve got all the experts here with first-hand knowledge of the Maverick/ Comet platforms. It usually takes me between 3-6 months to turn each build out so I’ll be taking my time with this. The kit is a Jo-Han offering and I got mine a few years ago at the decent price of $50. Nowadays these kits are running in the upwards of $300+!!!! Pretty basic kit really as it is just a promo model with an engine. The one piece chassis blows big time so there’ll be some mods there. As a matter of fact there’ll be a lot of mods to this one to get it where I’ll want it. Let me know if this is something you all would be interested in seeing. If so AND if the mods don’t mind…I’ll continue onwards after I hear from you all. The kit: And……the subject.
