    Hi all,

    I am just now getting back into Mavericks after a short break. In a regrettable decision, I sold my 1970 a few years back. I have been wrenching on mostly mustangs and Jeeps for the past little while. I just picked up a 1971 with a 170 and a 3 speed manual. She’s got some rust that I need to deal with but it’s a decent start and I got a great deal on it. I look forward to meeting some of you at future events and catching up with everyone I used to see.

    Nick

    Thanks Frank. Previous owner said it was Pearl Black but I think some green worked it’s way into the mix. Wheels will come when I do the Engine/Suspension/axle swap. Probably just gonna save up parts and do it all at once later. Just drive it and enjoy it for now.
