Bring out yer cars!
Rest in Peace Stephen Hawking, not only were you brilliant in mind but strong in heart too. You will be remembered for many things, your fantastic sense of humor and strength of mind will be yours forever.
Here is the PHS Collectorcarworld report on the 2017 12th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet in Milton Ontario at Kelsey's restaurant.
Just press the button below.
In honour of the 2018 Motorama Custom Car Show here is a picture from the year the NMCC had a display at the then called Performance World Custom Car Show from 2009. We were there as a car club in the car club section. The show sure has changed names and hands since then.
The NRMCC will be touring the show so stay tuned for pictures.
2009 Performance World
By the way, does anyone have their car club plaque from the 2009 show that they may want to part with (if their car club is now defunct) as one of our former members from 2009 kept it for himself. It would mean a lot to the club to have it..... for club history sake's. Please e-mail me at email@example.com if you would like to sell it. Thanks
Here are a few pictures from the 2018 Motorama.... sorry but there were no Comets or Mavericks at the show. There were a few Ratrods though.
Here new NRMCC member Dave feels like he has seen this Mustang before.
Believe it or not this is a Mercury. A former car show winner from the late '50's and '60's with some very old trophy's to boot. A show car survivor. Very cool.
A survivor towing a survivor, sweet!
The closest thing to a Maverick at this show was this Ford Fairmont (also known as a 1978 Maverick....sorta). This one is a bit of a beast.
This looks like a perfect location for an NRMCC Maverick Comet display for the 2019 edition of Motorama. Maybe a future event for the club, just sayin'.
The other half of the NRMCC, Larry and J did a scrap yard tour on Motorama day. The pair did a bit of Maverick Comet shopping and come up with a few items that they were looking for. The last picture of the day features a very special van at the bone yard. This van is very much a part of NRMCC history. I hope these picture grabbed your attention. :)
Don Palmer's racing has invited the NRMCC as well as member Larry Winter for his first tour of this fantastic shop. The NRMCC is proud to be invited for a tour as we consider Don's shop to be the Maverick Comet shop north and a friend of Ford. Here are a few pictures of the event. Enjoy!
The start of our journey to Don Palmer's shop was in Comet Dave's Maverick F-150. At this point we were about a mile outta Shiggy town.
After a nice trip to Beaverton we arrive at the shop.
And the tour begins. This little beauty was on the dyno to be tested.
This would look good in Comrick317's Comet, that we all agree on.
No Comets or Mavericks in the shop today..... this was Mustang Saturday.
Truer words were never spoken. This is for badge holders only.
In Don's office are pictures of some of the Comets and Mavericks that he has owned throughout the years and some he still owns. Some of the cars are owned by friends or customers. Now these pictures of Comets and Mavericks have been posted on this site before, but for the benefit of our blind viewers we have decided to run these pictures again.
Even John's Comet made the wall. I think i see some favoritism.
This Maverick was one of 12 built for racing by Ford and rare as hens teeth.
After our trip to Don's shop we stopped for a little lunch.
Then onto a secret hidden garage somewhere in beautiful Beaverton to see where Terry's Fairlane's new home will be and to hear it started up and running after all these years.
Terry's Fairlane was started up, the honors given to John (rightly so) and it was like hearing an old friend sing a sweet song. Terry my be gone but Loony will still be out there cruising Beaverton. If you do see Loony on the road give him a smile and a wave and remember Terry!
I really do love this picture of the Fairlane, it makes me think of seeing the Bullitt Mustang in it's garage with the tail end showing. I can't think of a better home for this car, it looks to be where it should be.
And of course no trip to Beaverton to see Terry's Fairlane would be complete without a visit to Terry at the cemetery to show our respects.
Rest in Peace Terry.
If you want to see a car guy who truly loves his Comet and wants to bring it with him (as best as can be) take a look at this stone complete with John's car doing a smoke show forever. Very cool and right next to his dear friend Terry's stone. Two pals and two cars, it does not get much better than that!
And finally, Terry's last words as he blows past you in his phantom Fairlane...
Over and out brother..............
A blast from the past...........The Price is Right...........yes it is.
''You've won a brand new car", ''that's right Bob''... ''a Mercury Comet from.....''
On January 1st, 2018 the NRMCC had it's first meeting of the year at Maverick Comet grand central also known as Larry's garage with a stop later on at Tim Hortons. This was the beginning of the winter restoration of two Comets and one Maverick. A true winter odyssey. Follow along and enjoy.
First off a short drive to Larry's for our meeting at "the garage" to get some parts, look at a tranny to be installed at a later date, shoot the breeze and check out Larry's motor troubles (yet again).
And yes it was as cold as it looked.
Arriving at Maverick Comet central.
Looking for some Comet trim pieces before the future paint job to come.
And of course the main reason we made the trip, to see the transmission to be installed before the new paint job in the spring.
Dave loaded down with Comet parts and ready for a trip to Timmy's.
And we can't forget Larry's Maverick which is a bit dead sitting outside in the snow. He is having more motor problems and can't seem to catch a break. I think it's time for yet another engine replacement. I have faith that it will all work out by spring in time for the 13th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet on July 29th in Milton.
It's funny but Larry's Maverick sitting in the snow with a basically useless engine covered in a tarp still looks great and ready for some cruising.
After our garage tour we filled up Dave's truck with some parts and made a little trip for some healthy food at Tim Hortons.
Now onto John's '68 Comet, this big old girl was due for a full on restoration and the time was right for John. So here are a few pictures of it's progress.
It seems strange to see John's Comet in primer grey and not bright red.
There's some nice bright red paint and this Comet needs to be red.
After 50 years this Comet still draws a crowd.
Dave's Comet needed some transmission work done so he decided to get that taken care of before he started the paint work on his car. So we took the Comet out on a nice dry January day for a little cruise to Halton transmission in Mississauga to get the job done. Here in Southern Ontario in January if you find a dry snowless day you better go for it while the going is good. We managed to find a spot between snow storms.
But first we needed to escape the underground parking.
Aaaaaaa light, we're free.
Than arriving at Halton transmission where the work will get done.
Let's play find the Comet in the picture below.
In these secret spy photos the boys discuss the game plan on the transmission work to be done on Dave's Comet. Shhhhhhh, don't look them in the eye.
Here's Larry Winter's beautiful Maverick sitting outside in the snow just before being pushed into his garage. Don't worry he was not going for a winter drive in this nice Maverick because the engine in his car is ....well...... a piece of crap and needs to be yanked out to see what's wrong with it.......... yet again.
Pushed ......yes pushed into the garage and ready for the engine removal.
The good thing is that the garage has been newly insulated and that will make it much easier to work on this dud of an engine or build a new one in some warmth. At least Larry has a few winter months to get things done.
Larry and his Maverick have had nothing but engine troubles as of lately. It's to the point that it is basically a useless engine in the Maverick and yet again in need of being replaced. Word is that a temporary 5.0 will be installed until a later date and then ........ well we will just have to wait and see. Remember good things come to those that wait and Larry has been waiting a long time for a good motor.
Now back to John's '68 Comet, which is starting to get a wee bit of new red paint on it. The red is very much the same as the original paint but brighter and so very eye popping. I can't wait to see the entire car when it's done.
These guys even painted the rear window sill where the speakers are.
Look at that red paint, a hint of whats to come.
Here are a few more shots of Dave's Comet in the shop during and after the transmission swap.
With the transmission done Dave's Comet was ready to be driven home and parked. Now the wait to get it painted but first John's Comet has to be finished and Dave's Comet will be next in line for a fresh coat of paint.
Up next, paint.
There are only two new pictures of John's Comet with paint on the body but wow do these two pictures do it justice. There is nothing nicer than seeing a car just painted still in the paint booth with the paint as new as it could ever be. What a beautiful red and this car needs to be red and no other colour!
Here are a few pictures of Larry's dud of an engine pulled from his Maverick. This is where we see what went wrong by taking this engine apart piece by piece. Hopefully there will be something that can be saved from this motor.
First off the motor will have it's rings removed, pistons soaked in degreaser and a little cylinder honing. I must say Larry has laid out the bits and pieces of this motor beautifully for our little expose, this is truly the sign of a pro.
The cylinder heads are now all apart and going in for a steam cleaning.
The bottom end is now altogether, the crank has been sent out, new main and rod bearings and new piston rings and Larry is starting to move closer to having a proper working motor.
On Monday February 5, 2018 the NRMCC went for a little tour to see John's '68 Comet, now out of the paint booth and at the shop to be wet sanded and to start assembly of this freshly painted Merc. It was truly great to watch John see his Comet painted for the first time. The look of joy on his face seeing his beloved car with a fresh coat of red paint is as real as it gets, John was thrilled and i was honoured to be there to see it all unfold.
John's massive trunk kinda looks like a pick up bed from this angle.
Every bit and piece of the body was painted bright red with the same care.
The hole in the hood shows that this 428 Comet is the real thing, one of only 24 ever produced. I wonder if any of the other 23 red 428 Comets still exist? This Comet is royalty and should be treated as such because they don'y get much rarer than this.
The 428 in this Comet will also be, "refreshed" at a later date, just in time for the 2018 cruising season and also in time for July 29, 2018 in Milton.
Now back to Larry Winter's mighty Maverick, here are a few more pictures of the work he has done on his engine. It really is just a bit of work everyday that truly pays off. This little budget build seems to be coming along nicely. ......... but first..........
The 306 chicken plucker is going for a little trip.............
After replacing a few parts, bits and pieces that could not be saved the engine is cleaned and that much closer to being installed in the car.
There truly is something scary as hell and exciting as hell seeing an engine about to go into it's new home. At the very least Larry will know that he did the work on this motor and not have to wonder, "What went wrong?" Can't wait to hear this thing run......... without the chickens.
Well it's in and onto the next bit of work.
This engine looks so close to being finished with the shiny stuff on it, you can almost hear this baby running down the road. Soon.............
Here are a few more pictures of John's 68' Comet, now in the rebuilding stage. This is a very exciting time to watch as his car comes to life.
A little surface rust after 50 years,a bit of sanding and a blast of black paint.
......and the Comet is ready for some new carpet.
There really is something about new paint and chrome that is so beautiful!!!!
Does that Matte Black hood scoop ever like nice freshly painted and mounted on John's hood. It's all coming along nicely.
Look at what i just won at Tim Horton's today. I guess it's better than just a coffee. Maybe Larry Winter could use it as i have a working motor. Larry Winter could you please contact me. :)
The latest pictures of John's Comet so close to being finished. Just a few more thing's to get done and it's ready to go. To get a better look at the car and to get a few pictures we rolled it outside.
And it's official, John's Comet looks better than it did brand new. The paint is beautiful on this car and everything is soon to be complete. After our trip to see the Comet we stopped off to visit Fred Clark and as usual we ended up at Tim Horton's for lunch. Comets, Mavericks and food, the perfect combo.
This just in, after having to deal with a chicken plucker engine and repeated engine problems, Larry finally has a properly working motor, installed and ready to go. The Maverick was brought out for run and it ran great. This is a budget build with a better motor to come in the future but for now..... Larry's Maverick lives once again!!!! This car looks great moving or parked. Yup.
The final thing to be installed was the carpet in John's Comet. After a few problems with the wrong carpet being sent to the shop, the new carpet was then installed, as well as the seats. With the job finally complete the Comet was trailered to Don Palmer's shop for a bit of engine work. After that, all that will be left will be the start of the cruising season. Up next will be Dave's '72 Comet for a new coat of paint.
The Comet looks as good as new. So you can compare, here is a picture of John's Comet in the showroom of Sandy Elliot Motors in Chatham Ontario in 1968. It looks as good as new, now the big question is...... which Comet is John's Comet in this picture? I think it's the red one. :)
Pictures of Dave's Comet on his journey to the paint shop from Mississauga for a full restoration to come soon. Our trip will begin on March 23, 2018.
More to come .......so stay tuned!

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.
Playboy just got cool again. How so ...... in it's Sept / Oct 2017 edition the playmate is seen with a Ford Maverick. Can you imagine. One of our little econo-boxes as a backround car. You have to admit that Playboy is looking outside the box. I think it's pretty cool!
I think what's more important Stephen is going for a drive in the Maverick with the girl ....... i'm sure it's got a radio in it. Just sayin' !
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.

Maverick Comet movies
Featuring movies with a Comet or Maverick as the star car or main car.
Deadboy II The Return 1992.13 with a 1977 Maverick (video has course language)
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.
