On Sunday Oct 8, 2017 Mr. Larry Winter came for a surprise visit to Comrick317's palacial palace for a Maverick Comet mini meet. It's always nice to seem Larry's super clean Maverick and to remind me of what these cars can look like with some paint, money and time thrown in. For now my Comet will still just be a Ratrod, but someday............... :)
It was cool being by my front upstairs window when i heard the roar of Larry's mighty Maverick pulling up to my house and stopping in front at the exact same time as i was talking to him on the phone.
Here for your viewing pleasure are the pictures of the Maverick visit to Comet town.
And just like that ................... Larry was gone like a thief in the night. To me his Maverick looks a bit like a road shark cruising down the street looking for a Chebby to eat. See you at the Fall MavCom breakfast.
On Saturday Aug 12, 2017 the NRMCC went to the Old Autos car show in Bothwell Ontario to see what there was to see and this is what we saw...... and yes there are Comets and Mavericks involved. Just sayin'.
Since one of our NRMCC members were shopping for a 60's or early 70's Comet and our trip to Bothwell was also for that purpose, as we were looking around we came across the former Zac 1972 Comet and it was for sale.Those of you who have been around for some time will remember that this Comet was at the Maverick Comet cruise night at Hooter's in Hamilton a few years back (now closed down) and that the former owner (Zac) sold it. The good news is that it is back in the NRMCC family after 8 years. The price was right and the owner wanted to sell...... so welcome back Zac Comet ......... er........Dave Comet.
A few more pictures of Zac's former Comet before it came home......... brings a tear to a Maverick Comet fans eye!!!! Thank you Bothwell.

On Sunday Sept 10, 2017 the NRMCC went to the Cruisin' for a Cure Canada car show in Brampton at the Powerade Centre. It was a beautiful sunny late summer day for a car show and what a massive amount of cars indeed. Here is what we saw at the show in regards to the world of Mavericks and Comets. Enjoy.
The NRMCC arrival to the show and what a great show it was.
Never get sick of seeing three Comets parked side by side by side.
And no show would be complete without a Maverick and the best part of it was this was a new Maverick that we have never seen before. Maybe a future attendee of next years 13th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet at Kelsey's restaurant in Milton. Only time will tell.
This Maverick is owned and raced by a nineteen year old woman who plans to paint the car next year, we can't wait to see what it looks like in a years time. By the way the owner is looking for a set of door glass for this early year Maverick, is there anyone out there in Maverick Comet land that may have a set of door windows that they may want to part with?
Now the hood on this Maverick is a one of a kind....... how so you may ask? Back in the day, 1975 if i recall, the owner said before there were fiberglass hoods for these cars, the person who owned this Maverick at that time decided to make his own fiberglass hood from scratch. This hood is a fiberglass copy of the original hood with the scoop fiberglassed to it. Not to bad from scratch and has held up pretty good over the years.
It's funny how some cars look crappy in grey primer... but this one looks great and ready for action.
A few more parting shots of the cars, just for fun.
On Thursday Aug 31, 2017 the King Comet Maverick Car Club went to Cayuga Toronto Motorsports Park for a little racing on the strip. The event was put on by DaSilva Racing and was a fun event of loose casual racing. The day was cold and windy and gave a hint of what is to come in the next few months...... so get out there with your Comets and Mavericks before it's too late!
First up was the tire change to add a little meat and grip to the rear.
John's Comet wasn't the only 60's Comet at this event. I finally got to see in person this beautiful '67 Mercury Comet station wagon, this thing is rare and fast too and looks as good parked as it does tearing down the strip.
John getting ready for a pass against a new Che^y Cam@#o, oh my!
Another pass for John's '68 Comet.
Did you say the speed of light?
And yes there was a Maverick there too which also did a few runs.
And one more run for John's Comet.
That was the King Comet Maverick Car Club day at Cayuga Motorsports Park. Comets and Mavericks oh boy!! Bring out yer cars.
Thank you to all that came out to the 12th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet 2017. I want to give a special thank you to all the Comet Maverick guys that took the time to bring out your cars or trailer your race cars to the event. Thank you to the owners who went on the Mountain Cruise with their cars, after all they are meant to be driven. Without you there would be no show / meet and greet. This show is just for our cars and you all made that happen. Once again, thanks for bringing out yer cars!!!!!!
Here is the dash plaque for the 12th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet featuring J's very cool 1977 4-door Maverick. Now this image of J's Maverick is in the past simply because his hood is now painted flatblack with a copper coloured custom grabber stripe on it. I'll miss the wild purple hood but the flatblack hood with the custom stripe looks great. And who says that 4-door Mavericks can't be cool, I sure like 'em!
Here for your viewing pleasure are some of the pictures from our 12th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet 2017. Enjoy!! :)
As always, the media bits and pieces gets it started first with the dash plaques and DVD's of last years Meet and Greet.
As promised here are the DVD's of last years 11th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet 2016. Better than a grab bag of old car wax and some flyers and you can watch it over and over again. If you were at last years Meet and Greet with your Maverick or Comet but didn't get out to this years, give me a call for your copy....... and it's free to boot.
The start of the Mountain Cruise 6 on our way to Milton for the Meet and Greet. Remember these cars were made to drive and we did.
Now for the driving, and a trip to Rattlesnake point is always good fun.
It's nice to see Larry's stunningly cool Maverick back on the Mountain Cruise again after a long absence. It was said during the event that this Maverick should have come out of a Hotwheels box complete with the backing board. I could not have agreed anymore!
Beware of Rattlesnake Point or it might just get ya! :)
We even had a police car in a plain wrapper escort us on our Mountain Cruise. Everyone behaved....... well, until he turned into a coffee shop.
On our way to Kelsey's and the Meet and Greet we spotted this '64 Comet driving the other way. He ended up at the Meet and Greet later on in the day..... cause all roads in Milton lead to the Meet and Greet if you drive a Comet or Maverick.
We finally arrived at Kelsey's restaurant, had a little lunch and handed out the dash plaques and DVD's to the boys. It's nice to sit around, eat lunch and shoot the breeze with some like minded Maverick Comet fans.
And finally it was time to go outside and check out all the Mavericks and Comets. First up was this beautiful '64 Comet Caliente. This Comet is black and near perfect and was last to show up, but was a great addition to the Meet and Greet.
This is John's '70 Maverick race car sporting a new yellow paint job but retaining the flatblack hood. Thank you John for taking the time to trailer it out to our Meet and Greet, it made for a nice addition to the show.
J's cool 4-door Maverick with the newly painted hood and copper custom Grabber hood stripe. Flatblack........ my favorite colour.
And the return of Larry's wicked Maverick after five years. Damn this car looks great and sits just right.
Comrick317's old faithful Ratrod Comet. Still rollin' after all these years.
John's '68 Comet with the 428 Cobra Jet. Big and fast is the way to go.
Vince's '68 Comet, one is rare enough but two of these Comets in the same place is an amazing sight.
The line up pictures of the cars for the 12th Annual Maverick Comet Meet and Greet. Always love these group shots of our cars together.
And the group shots for the 12th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet 2017 with John's Maverick trailer as a back drop. Thanks for the shade from the sun John!
I once again want to thank all that came out to the 12th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet 2017 and i want to give a special thank you to the guys that took the time to bring out their cars for our event. There are more pictures and videos that will get posted when i make a page for the 12th Meet and Greet so for now i hope you enjoyed these pictures.
On Saturday July 15th, 2017 the King Comet Maverick Car Club went up to Beaverton Ontario for the Road Trip to Beaverton 3 Terry Phillips Memorial Cruise in honour of our dear friend Terry Phillips who passed away on Feb1st, 2017. As Terry was ill for quite awhile he could no longer get out to the car shows and cruises so his childhood friend John started bringing the car shows to Terry. Thus the Road Trip to Beaverton car shows. With Terry's passing we thought it would be our honour to have one more car show at Terry's house to give him one last Hotrod send off. And by the way, if your wondering, yes there is a 1/4 mile track in Heaven!
The start of our Road Trip to Beaverton 3 in honour of Terry started at "the" Tim Horton's as usual.
A quick pit stop before going to the cemetery to see Terry off in Hotrod fashion.
I will only say a few words about the following pictures. Terry was a true Hotrodder with a true passion for classic cars and for Ford. His Fairlane was his baby. He had many friends, some new, some from years back and some from childhood. If you want to see the love and camaraderie Terry had with his friends just look at these next pictures of the people and cars that turned out to see him off. Always remember that Terry did it in his own way in life, this turn out of people shows that we loved him for it!!!
After our farewell to Terry at the cemetery the line up of cars did one final pass by his gravestone and one last cruise of classic cars through downtown Beaverton and then a short drive to his house for one last car show. I think it was a nice sendoff to a true Hotrodder and i think Terry would have loved it!
Here are the pictures from the car show and lunch at Terry's house.
Terry's last word on the subject!
Rest in Peace Terry and always keep the shiny side up!!
This smoke show is for you.
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.
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.

Runaway Car with a 1977 Maverick
This rubber ducky has been brought to you for a mere $120 thousand dollars (Wynne's portion of the bill, grand total for this thing is $250,000) of your tax payer money to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday and was placed at Toronto's lakefront for a short period of time. I guess for the Wynne Liberals when the bucket of our tax money is deep, there is no price to high for this sort of crap! At least they could have made it a six story high beaver or a Mountie.
Your tax dollars working for you!!!!!
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.
Fun Fact: With the Wynne Liberals reduction in the cost of your monthly hydro rates (in order to get re-elected in 2018) it has been estimated that in the end it will cost the Ontario tax payer 45 Billion.......yes 45 Billion dollars of your hard earned tax dollars in order to save you 24 Billion dollars. Wow Wynne Liberal math......... what a deal. Please remember this in the next election!
Check it out........ https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/hydro-plan-will-cost-45-billion-to-save-ontarians-24-billion-fao/article35096250/
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) ................ The Wynne Liberals now want to raise the minimum wage to $15 dollars an hour but first it will go up only a little on Jan 1st, 2018 and if this fine party gets voted back in than and only than will it go up to fifteen dollars an hour. Now i don't disagree that the minimum wage needs to go up just so people in Ontario can almost survive, since the Fiberals have raised the price of everything in Ontario through the roof, $15 an hour will still keep most people in Ontario at the poverty line. It's funny (not really) how the Wynne Liberals didn't bring up the minimum wage back near four years age when they were first elected in a majority with the same thought of helping out Ontario's poor workers to a better life. I guess if you want more wage first you need to wait four or so years and then and only then will the Fiberals help you out but first .......... wait for it ........we need your vote to get the big raise. It's kind of like the Wynne Liberals see the workers in Ontario as little furry animals, if you want the bread first you need to let us pet you (votes).
Of course there is nothing stopping Wynne from saying after she gets voted in again that they looked at the books and the big raise is not affordable. She will most likely blame the Harris government from the 1990's.
So just how bad do you want this dirty little vote bribe pay raise? Is four more years of this crooked premier worth it?
Re-election goody #8) ................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.
What the average Ontario taxpayer now looks like after 4 terms of Liberal rule.
Mavericks & Comets seen in the wild.
Saw this Maverick in the wild on a trailer on Aug 26,2017 in Etobicoke. It was being pulled down the road with me running behind it like a fool taking pictures. I wanted to give the owner a flyer to this website but my old legs were just to slow. Maybe the owner will bring his Maverick to next years 13th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet in Milton next July at Kelsey's restaurant.
Nearly missed this one in the crowd of people.
This early 1970's Maverick was at Wasaga Beach in Ontario on Aug 15, 2016 just cruising slowly down Beach Rd. I barely snapped off a picture of this Maverick in the wild.
Check it out, a Comet in a comic (hee hee). Love this guys stuff,the comic goes by the name Bizarro, funny as Hell.
