    Accidental Maverick Photo

    On one of the racing boards that I am on, someone sent in a photo of a street legal sprint car - in the background is a late model Maverick :clap:

    That is kind of like a Maverick "in the wild". We should start a thread where people post Mavericks they see "in the wild". Run across one...add it to the thread kind of thing. Just random Mavericks and Comets one see's out there in the world.

    That recent "in the wild" post was what made me think about this photo - Stefan can merge them together into one post titled In The Wild and sticky it somewhere - I'm sure it will grow (y)

    yep.. I'd add a few pics for cars that I see occassionally as well. (y)

    One(4 door) is at a high school and the other(fairly nice 2 door with stripes) is always sitting in the same parking lot.. likely because the owner works there.

    There also is this thread of old Maverick/Comet photos, which I was thinking of merging into a "super thread" that would be made a sticky thread.

    What do you guys think?

    If you merge that one with the 2 more recent ones, it would make for a nice thread to build upon for photos in the wild - I have a couple more I could add to it now :)

    I guess I would keep the recent photos seperate from the old photos.....but it doesn't matter a whole lot to me. I would just like to see people's random photos of Mavericks and Comets "in the wild".

    Not sure if this is the official in the wild thread, but I came across this one late last week. Same day I saw a yellow mav on the highway. Did not get a pic of that.

    Spotted this one today at a car show. Looked like a young kid owns it, good to see they aren't all drinking the Honda Kool Aid.
