    Nice looking car. I can only imagine the looks a Maverick or Comet would get in your country, they probably dont get called a Nova or Camaro or people telling you that there grandparents had one. Thanks for sharing

    Thank you - it is road legal and generates quite some interest - a lot of admirers ask if it's a Ford Capri - and yes you've guessed it, over here most of their parents or grandparentschave had one.....

    Neat Car ! If you're going to race it you might want to consider an 7/8" inch diameter front Sway Bar and a
    Rear also. I put this setup on a 70 Maverick and the result was very noticeable .. Improved turning .. No 'Lean' in
    sharp turns and in general an ' all around ' improvement. I mention this NOW since the FRONT sway bar is on a
    Back Order in America. Tally ho !
