    I am with you. In fact I would welcome the deal being broken.

    You guys can't be serious? It's super easy to get cigarette smoke smell out of the car. You just stuff it full of dryer sheets on a hot day in the summer. You will NEVER smell the cigarette smoke again I promise.

    Now after you sell it... that's the new owner's problem.

    But you'd never get the smell out of the roll cage and metal floor boards. :biglaugh:

    I see the bids are going up. I won't surprised at all if it sells. Most of us can't afford one of these.

    exactly! theres no carpet no sound deadner no headliner no upholstery period for the smell to sink into. the friggin seats prolly a hard plastic seat also so the smell will never set into anything.

    ITS A RACE CAR NOT A LINCOLN TOWN CAR! :rolleyes:

    cigarette smoke :biglaugh:



    if I had the money I would buy it that car is cool as hell! anyone that buys it will love it. hopefully we get to see it raced :thumbs2:

    Good luck finding ANY Maverick that you could guarantee it wasn't smoked in...:16suspect

    I'm sure that one smells a hell of a lot better than most original cars just for the fact there is no mold, water damage, tar paper, VOC's from the seats, foam, etc...

    ... and CO from the side exit exhaust might trump tobacco smoke odor any day!:dizzy:


    I really don't think a serious buyer for this particular car is going to give a rats a$$ about tobacco smoke

    Lmao people there are even on the cigarette thing. I can't believe a simple cigarette can be so distracting.

    "You know you’re a dedicated smoker when you can’t even make a short in car video without a cancer stick between your fingers."

    There seems people are also hung up on the Cougar taillights. The buyer could always slap on some 67 Shelby bezels for a different look as far as I know.

    I was just agreeing with a previous post. Not trying to be controversial (not my style).

    indeed that seems to be the place to go. if a clean maverick like that yellow one sold for 26,500 maybe the bidder that lost is willing to pony up more cash to get your car.

    comparing the two if that one fetched 26500 yours should easily fetch over 30K but thats the luck of the auction. the yellow mav brought 26 5 that day and the next day your car might bring half that depending on whos in the room and what the atmosphere is like
