Grumpy Little Ford — This was my sons car, we did alot of work on it together. When he lost interest, I got it from him. It's like a grandpa car with attitude. It has a factory 302, disc brakes, and is a NC car. Overall it's a fun little car to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It has a good look and attitude

Cons: IT is a mid 70's Ford with alot of rattles and sqeaks!

My Low Mile Custom Ford Maverick. — This is the first car I ever bought and have had for atleast ten years now. All of the body work is done which included fixing dents, repairing rust, and a few custom changes I made like shaving off the drip rails, romoving all the emblems, and filling in the marker lights. Full interior updades including painting dash and body panels black, painting headliner, new black carpet, reupholstering and switching out the front bench seat to buckets, new trunk carpet, new stereo and speakers, and gt steering wheel

Pros: It's different, its a classic, not many people restore a four door maverick

Cons: It only has the inline six engine right now which means that the carburetors suck in them. It only has manual steering which is a pain in parking lots, and air conditioning means opening the windows.

In Progress — It's a cool little car. It's the Luxury model, so it has leather bucket seats, AC, and the vinyl roof and trim line. The few things I don't like about it at this point are that the model year is the first with the big bumpers, the deck lid is taller than previous year, the suspension still sits up funny even after adding the V8, I don't want to put in all new suspension, and it's a sedan. It's 95% rust-free, though, and it only cost $100.

Pros: leather interior, bucket seats, AC, compact design for easy maneuvering.

Cons: engine not fully installed
