Here's a great article about Mavericks and Comets from the early April 2017 edition of Old Autos. If you get a chance to pick up a copy it is a nice read and with not much written about our cars it also makes for a nice collectors item.
The NRMCC thanks Old Autos and John Delgaty for the fine article.
Thanks to all that attended the annual NRMCC MavCom Breakfast on Sunday in Burlington / Oakville, it was nice to see some old faces that have been missing over the years. A special thank you to all who brought out their Mavericks and Comets for the breakfast in early April. Thanks to our host Larry Winter for getting everyone together, your the man!
These are the pictures from our breakfast and mini meet at Denny's, enjoy.
Here is Larry Winter getting a framed version of the MavCom breakfast flyer featuring his Maverick jammed into a burger, ready to hang in the garage. Is fine art not a beautiful thing!!
After a nice breakfast with the boys, out into the parking lot we went to look at the cars and to catch up after a long winter. And the day turned out to be a nice warm early spring day perfect for a Maverick Comet mini meet.
Here is Larry pointing out that his Maverick came with a windshield too. :)
Sorry buddy.....i couldn't resist. Thanks for treating me to breakfast, i owe you one.
So nice to see Larry's beautiful Maverick back on the road again, it can't look much better than this and the stance on this Maverick hits all the right notes. And how 'bout that Grabber hood to complete the look, stunning!
They'll let anything into these shows......... so next time ,"bring out yer cars"!
Here's a great reason to build yourself a four door and bring it on out to the Meet and Greet or the MavCom Breakfast. All Comets and Mavericks are welcome.
Thanks Jay for bringing out your very cool four door!
I think we have some Mustang owners that may have slide in under the radar.... oh sorry it's only 240Gordie and California Dave.
One last look at the Mavericks as they head home. Thanks for coming out and a special thank you for bringing out your cars.
Yours truly after eating 5 grand slams, seeing some Mavericks and hearing some war stories as told by the guys, happily driving my Comrick home. See you at the next get together and bring on spring!
A quick video of the cars.

Bring out yer cars!
Yes this beautiful Mercury Comet has been sold to a very lucky gentleman in Southern Ontario, you sir are one lucky man....... enjoy this Comet. If you get a chance bring out your new ride and join us for the 12th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet and Mountain Cruise on July 30th, 2017 at Kelsey's restaurant in Milton. 1:00 p.m. Bring out yer cars!
I found this hidden treasure at a swap meet, thought all you Maverick Comet fans would find it interesting. It's a small booklet for fasteners that would hang off a shelf by a wire or string. There are no car pictures inside just numbers for fasteners, nuts and bolts for mostly anything including cars of all sorts. I imagine the picture on the cover is as random as it gets. Just think, somewhere out there on a Volkswagen Bug board this exact same little book is there. Still a cool little collectible.
On Saturday March 4, 2017 the boys from the King Comet Maverick Car Club went for a visit to the Beaverton area to visit one of the local garages. This garage is a very Ford friendly location where the Mercury Comet and Ford Maverick are........... well King. When we arrived, up in the air was this oh so wicked '66 Mercury Comet having a bit of weight reduction surgery done to it, such a cool car. Also i snapped a few pictures of photos hanging on the walls of Comets and Mavericks from the present as well as the past that are proudly displayed at the shop. This was a sort of pre-spring Comet Maverick shop / museum tour, i love seeing these pictures hanging on the walls for all to see.
Now that's a lotta meat!!!
How many cars have seen the back of this Comet at the strip? I bet a few.
That's one sweet '66 Mercury Comet.
Now for the museum tour of Comets and Mavericks.
As i was told the story goes that this 1970 Maverick (bumpers replaced with fiberglass bumpers) was one of 10 made strictly for drag racing by Ford in the states for 1970. They never made it up here to Canada, well except this one which was bought as a used car. That's a nice little Maverick to pick up.
The engine bay was made a bit different from standard Mavericks with the steering box located in a different position and the shock towers being more like a '69-'70 Mustang to fit different sizes of engines for the drag strip. I guess the hood and scoop were a sorta one off for this one of 10. This Maverick had a 427 in it back in the day. In the end it was sold, maybe this Maverick is still out there somewhere?
The same Maverick but with a new paint job, judging by the front wheels, yup that's a 427. :)
This Comet stationwagon is so fast that it warps time and space and yes it's still around. I hope to see it in person someday.
Here's a better ......less warped picture of this beautiful stationwagon. I think there may be too much weight in the the rear, the front wheels seem to not be able to stay on the ground.
A few more Comet pictures from off the wall.
And lastly one more picture of Crappers beautiful Comet just waiting for spring to arrive in Ontario.

Gas plant scandal to save two Liberal seats...... $1.2 billion cost to Ontario tax payers, Ornge scandal, enviromental fees on products you buy, carbon tax, cap and trade scheme, over the top backwards certifications on cars with inflated costs, the cost of a vehicles validation sticker rising from $74 to $120 with more increases to come - all in the span of 5 years, toll lanes on the Q.E.W. (a nice gift to the well off and the rich, while the middle class are jammed into the free lanes), bribery charges, a gift to the insurance company's disguised as a rate decrease to Ontario drivers but in the real world means that you will get less in an accident and to get your coverage back to what it was you will have to pay more than you did in the first place, return of photo radar, Jan 1, 2017- 4.3 cent increase to a litre of gas (a tax on a tax), Jan 2017 another increase in the cost to heat your home, possible sale of Hydro One (WHICH WILL SEE OUR MONTHLY RATES SKYROCKET EVEN MORE) - helicopter and plane rides to private Bahamian island retreat (how's that carbon foot print Mr. Trudeau), of course,no new taxes, etc, etc, etc......., Liberals....... destroying this province and country one bank account at a time!
If you want to keep your classic car as well as the money in your wallet vote these snakes in the grass out of office starting in 2018!!
Mayor Tory Toll's scheme of tolling the roads has been eliminated by the premier (until after the 2018 election).
Now that the premier has thrown Mayor Tory Tolls under the bus and eliminated the possibilty of tolls to try and save her political career in the up coming election , it's time to eliminate these two starting in the 2018 election. If not than the possibility of toll roads will return after the 2018 election. June 7th, 2018, get out and vote. Please help remove these bandits from office!!!
I lost my war on cars.
Cap and Trade = Thievery and Greed
carbon tax = Liberals filling their bank accounts.
Don't forget to get a selfie picture with the Prime Minster of Canada on your way to the bank to pay your carbon tax. :)
Politics can be fun so let's start a list of all the things that our oh so honest premier of Ontario has done and will do to save her political skin in the up coming 2018 provincial election.
Re-election goody #1) An instant reduction on your hydro bill of 8%, or the GST. Of course the cost of gas for your car went up an extra 4.3 cents a liter on Jan 1, 2017, something you can't avoid. Hey a little here, a little there, who will notice.
Re-election goody #2) No to Mayor Tory Tolls toll roads in February, such a nice gesture to Ontario drivers before an election............... but after the election look out??????
Re-election goody #3) A further reduction in your hydro rates to equal 25%. Why not announce the total reduction all at the same time, i guess the good news needs to be stretched out..... sorta like the extra 25 Billion dollars interest that all Ontarian's will have to pay to bring down this hydo debt in the next 30 or so years including your children and grandchildren. Put the problem down the road but don't fix it. Anything to get re-elected, sure makes that 1.2 Billion wasted on saving those two Liberal seats seem like a real deal.
Re-election goody #4) Removing the cost of the useless Drive Clean money maker test (tax) for Ontario drivers. Funny how the Wynne Liberals ran on this promise to get elected but didn't implement it at the start of the term when it would have helped out the drivers of Ontario for the next costly four years. But now with the next election just a year away suddenly they care about the cost of this totally useless test. Don't be fooled by this- trade your money for vote scam.
Fun fact: When you had to pay the emissions tax..... er ...... test it was $34ish dollars every two years and only if your car was 7 years or older but not older than 1987 and down in model years, so only certain cars had to do this useless test (tax) but now you do not have to pay for this test but the cost of the yearly sticker on your cars plate has gone up in cost to $120 per year, basically about a $40 dollar increase in the last few years. So what the Wynne Liberals have done is use smoke and mirrors to make the tax payer feel like he / she does not have to pay this useless test on their cars of which a large amount of people didn't have to pay in the first place (depending on the age of your car) and only every second year but the Wynne Liberals have increased the sticker price by more than what the emission test price was and every car in Ontario has to pay the higher sticker price every year. Wow talk about doubling your money once again on the tax payers backs. Maybe we were not suppose to notice that. The Wynne Liberals are hoping you won't either!
Re-election goody #5) Now the Wynne Liberals suddenly feel for the renters and first time home buyers of Ontario and want to charge a new ....... wait for it........ a new tax against foreign house investors and to cap the rent on apartments built after 1991. Wynne was upset that young people in Ontario can't afford to rent an apartment and the thought of buying a house is just a dream for most. Funny how Wynne didn't mention the 4.3 cent increase per litre of gas on Jan 1st of this year or the rise in sticker price for your cars plate to $120 dollars every year. She also didn't mention the increase for the cost of natural gas to heat our homes either, i guess these things don't count in making it that much harder to by a house or pay rent on an apartment. So what crooked Wynne is saying is that her price increases on everything she controls is o.k. and not a burden to anyone in Ontario and it's only bad if someone other than her government makes obscene amounts of money.
So thoughtful of Wynne and her Liberal government to start caring so much so close to the next election.
Re-election goody #6) ................ Now the Wynne Liberals are going to pay for all drug costs for anyone in Ontario under 24 years of age, how very nice of them to do this. How many people this young need drugs as opposed to older people in Ontario that need life saving drugs. All this PR stunt does is make this government look good but helps very few people while leaving older tax payers to either pay out massive amounts for drugs or simply die. In Wynne's Ontario if your over the ripe old age of 24 you have very little value (other than to pay taxes). Anyone over 24 please remember this on vote day.
Re-election goody #7) ................to be announced very soon!
Please don't let this snake in the grass fool you with her smoke and mirror show of kindness designed to buy your vote in 2018 using your own money..........the Canadian public's money. These things should have been done at the beginning of this crooked liberal party's term. And one more thing..............................
Please for your children's sake, vote this Liberal scum out of office next year. Your children are not their property to bend and manipulate! At this point the Liberal's feel that they are untouchable...... show them with your votes that they are not.
