    Need another one? There's one for sale up here and if you bought it I would no longer be tempted! Screenshot_20200109-133018_Samsung Internet.jpg

    I hear you, the Maverick is enough project for me and when I'm "done" I just want to enjoy it!

    One of the reason my own projects seem to take as long as they do is because I finish/build cars for others in my spare time. Here are a couple that I have done in the past 2 years. I do see a small break after the 2 cars I have in the garage right now and may be able to get some work done on the Maverick

    I'd be ahead donating to a Rick fund so you'd buy it... :yup:

    Plain & simple, three toys is pushing limit and four is insane(I still have the '88 T-Bird)...

    I'm in the lock you away stage..

    Counting two parts cars, F-350 U-Haul, beater F-150, two Grand Marquis & the four toys I'm at 10, I'd be happy to be at five total.

    I still have you beat, 2 cars. 2 trucks (working on a deal for a 3rd), a parts truck, and 8 motorcycles puts me all in at 13 not counting the truck I haven’t bought yet.
    I was doing good until I put up a new shed and the little lady seen all the motorcycles in one building! :nailbiting:

    I posted a Model T when this first started and I doubt anything will ever come of that. My lovely wife has heard my drone about this car or that car and wanting to save them all. A few weeks ago I hit a hot button with her, my brother has a 65 Malibu SS that I have been drooling over. We passed a nice example and she liked it a lot, I told her he said he'd make me a deal on his and next thing you know she bought it. Should be fun juggling two junkers at once!

    Make it pretty and safe with a mild lope. It currently has a 454 with rectangle port heads in it but my brother is keeping it for his 70 Chevelle. We'll put a 350 with a 200R4 in itand add disc brakes to the front.
