To my friend Pat Murphy, you were a true classic car guy and a positive, kind man. I will miss you at the cruises and seeing Plain Jane, your trusty '55 Ford at all the car shows and swap meets. I was honored to know you. Pat may you have many long and happy cruises in Heaven with Plain Jane. Rest in Peace my friend.

Bring out yer cars!
Only a mere 4 months and than knee deep in Comets and Mavericks. Be there.
Rest in Peace Jan-Michael Vincent. 1970's, the drive in with my parents and White Line Fever. Still think about that truck driving through that big sign 45 odd years later. Thank you sir!
One again it's Motorama season in Mississauga so the NRMCC visited the show on March 9th, 2019 to check out all the classic cars and some newer ones too. In honour of the 10th anniversary of our appearance in 2009 we'll post a picture of our car club display from 2009 when we were there as the NMCC. We will also post a picture of what is in our old spot from our 2019 visit. Now there were no Comets or Mavericks at the show this year but still a lot a cool cars to see. Here is a look at what we saw at the show featuring all kinds of makes and models. Enjoy these pictures of the 2019 Motorama.
By the way, this 2009 car club participant plaque (below picture) was stolen by a former NMCC member from our car club display. If anyone has one from the 2009 Performance World Custom Car Show car club section and wants to part with it, the club would be interested in it. Please contact the NRMCC. Would really like to replace some stolen club history if possible. firstname.lastname@example.org
The pictures from Motorama 2019.
Here's a super rare barn find.....a 2016 Mustang. It has the ultimate patina look, almost like it was made that way. But we all know that they simply forgot to paint it before it left the factory.
Once again the NRMCC's love of the odd and different shines through.
And of course a little brand exposure is always good. Join the NRMCC.
This classic pick up is a stunner, gloss black with all those copper highlights. Beautiful!
This Corvette was pretty much an original survivor.
Comet John looking at this beautiful hopped up straight axel '57 Ford Fairlane.
How could anyone not love this cool little mini Hotrod.
Here's Comet Dave wanting to buy this poor bastard a burger, or..... something.
And of course one of my personal favorite cars.....the '41 Willys.
This Talladega was simply perfect!
And of course patina always catches our eye.
It appears that little Johnny didn't take good care of his bike and it was taken away. That'll learn little Johnny a good lesson.
And we have here a Charger that's not really a Charger but really a new Challenger that looks like a '69 Charger......anyway, this car is fantastically done. The old style 2 door Charger with all the new car comforts.
In the RatRod HotRod section of Motorama you could even get a tattoo or a haircut as well as most anything that was cool. This room was the best one.
Of course if you wanted to rock out there was a concert of good ol' Rock'n' Roll in the RatRod HotRod building at Motorama. And the band was rockin'.
And that was in a RatRod nut shell the NRMCC's tour of the 2019 Motorama. No Comets or Mavericks (other than die cast cars) but a lot of cool rides to see.
Thanks for tuning in and as always........bring out yer cars!!!!!!
Thank you to all that made it out to our NRMCC Maverick Comet lunch at Wimpy's Diner on January 13, 2019. Here are the picture's of this epic event.
Our journey to Wimpy's Diner started out snow free but halfway there a small blizzard suddenly appeared and then just like that as we arrived at Wimpy's Diner it was gone. Either way it didn't stop us from our mission......a MavCom lunch.
Ah yes, some cleaver NRMCC MavCom product placement.
A small but ravenous group, not a cheeseburger or fries survived our onslaught.
That was our most excellent NRMCC MavCom lunch at Wimpy's Diner. Thank you to all that came out and thank you Patrick Smith for spending some time with us Maverick Comet guys before you make the big trip down east to become a Lobster fisherman. See you all at the next Maverick Comet lunch / breakfast sometime in the barren month of frozen February.
Thanks to all that attended and brought out your Mavericks and Comets plus one Fairlane. This was another very successful MavCom event. The cruise route picked out by Larry Winter was spectacular and lunch at M.T. Bellies was fantastic. Good food, great friends and cool Comets and Mavericks, what else could you ask for and the rain held off even though the sky did look very threatening. Thanks Larry for hosting this fun event before the.....snow arrives. Here are the picture from our road trip to Welland.
The Dash Plaques for the cruise to Welland.
The beginning of our Road Trip to Welland started at THE Tim Horton's.
Our 2nd stop was at Larry Winter's placial estate or as it's better known as......Maverick Comet grand central. Long driveway means many cars.
And than the NRMCC Road Trip to Welland began with a beautiful cruise through some nice and colorful tree lined narrow streets. But first we had to drive out of this cement city we live in.
Our 3rd stop, for some pictures and to wait for two more cars, one Comet and one Fairlane. As we always say, the more the merrier.
Derek50 with his Comet and his friends showed up with their Fairlane and then there was 7 cars and our tour continued.
Back on the road again to stop number 4 of our MavCom convoy. We had stopped here way back in 2012 at the 7th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet. Unfortunately the deep hole creek that was the draw here is all fenced in. Ah, our nanny state province, here protecting us all.
Either way it was a nice spot to stop and take some pictures of our little NRMCC Comet Maverick Fairlane car lot.
And finally we were on our way to stop number 5 which will bring us into Welland to M.T. Bellies restaurant. This will be the second time that the NRMCC will have had and event at this restaurant. It will be nice to be back.
Love this turn, the first time we did this turn was way back in 2012 at the 7th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet.
After a really nice cruise through some stunning tree lined roads our MavCom convoy reached M.T. Bellies just in time for lunch.
After a long cruise to Welland it was time to eat, smiles everyone, smiles!!!
After lunch at M.T. Bellies out we went to look at the Comets and Mavericks, take a few pictures, tell some lies. Love this part of the cruise.
And of course the group photo from the MavCom cruise to Welland.
The end of this event is near, could Larry's Maverick look any better? We got a bit of gas and than the ride home through more tree lined roads.
Than......it was all over but the crying. Thanks as always to all who brought out your cars. An excellent Road Trip to Welland!!!
To all that missed it and may have liked to attend, next time,
Bring out yer cars!!!!!!!!
We would like to thank all who came out to the 13th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet and Mountain Cruise 7 on July 29th, 2018. Also a special thank you to all that took the time to bring out your Mavericks and Comets (plus a GTOOOOOH and a Trans Am) when the weather report suggested possible rain in the afternoon right smack in the middle of the Meet and Greet / show and shine time slot. We had a record amount of cars even with the threat of rain. Amazing! A big thank you to the three race car Mavericks who took the time to trailer your cars to our event. There is some effort in bringing your Mavericks, trailers plus trucks to tow it all. And also some distance was covered to attend the Meet and Greet - Owen Sound, Town of Simcoe, Woodstock, the Whitby area and Orangeville. A very special thank you too (you know who you are) for always coming out, especially at this very trying time, to all the NRMCC events, from the bottom of my heart....thank you. Remember, without you guys and your cars there would be no show. Thank you once again!!!!!
Part of the deal with attending the Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greets is getting a DVD of the last years event. It usually gets handed out at the next years event. I think that this is better than an old tube of car wax, a pen and some insurance brochures. Just my opinion.
The start of the Mountain Cruise 7 up Appleby Line to Milton for the 13th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet.
Burlington's finest always showing an interest in our Mavericks and Comets.
As we approach Rattle Snake point in our MavCom convoy, there are more than poisonous snakes to worry about .... like insane bikers bend on speed.
The big turn onto Steeles Ave and we are mere moments from the 13th Annual Maverick Comet Meet and Greet at Kelsey's restaurant.
And as our MavCom convoy goes under the Milton train tracks and we approach our final destination. This is my favorite part of the trip simply because you never know what's waiting for you at Kelsey's.
John was the first Maverick to arrive at the Meet and Greet, show and shine.
It was nice to see John had again brought out his race Maverick, this year sporting new Maverick logos on the doors. Thanks for putting in the extra time and effort to bring out your car for our Meet and Greet.
A few random shots of the Comets and Mavericks, all years and types.
The last to arrive with his newly painted Maverick, but first in our hearts was Fred, his wife and the small one. This is not a trailer queen but a roadworthy racer with fresh war wounds from the day before at the race track.
Now for the main event....... lunch at Kelsey's and of course some stories about our cars and a bit of fib-u-lations. Also it's a great way to get to know any new people who arrive with their cars for the first time.
As Vince's very cool '68 Comet was the feature car on all the flyers and dash plaques for this year it was only right that we gave him some framed versions of the flyer in the finest dollar store frames we could find. There are not many '68 rocket Comets out there so they should be recognized.
The hardware was also handed out including the dash plaques and the 12th Meet and Greet DVD from 2017. Dave with the Comet GT was presented with a very special version of the DVD. Sorry no old car wax.
For the PHSCOLLECTORCARWORLD review of this epic DVD, just press the link below and as always.....enjoy!!!
These are the NRMCC Annual Meet and Greet group photos for 2018.
Vince's beautiful 1968 Comet in pure white. Always nice to see both '68 Comets arrive at any of our Meet and Greets. Interestly, Vince's Comet was the record breaking car to arrive at the Meet and Greet, clocking in at number 9 breaking our eight car record from way back in 2008.
John's completely restored 1 of 24 made for racing 1968 Comet 428 Cobra Jets, looking better than new and so shiny it burns the eyes. :)
New owner Dave with his 1972 Comet GT (and former Zac Comet from back in the day) just fully restored and painted this winter.
(four fingers of death)
Comrick317's Ratrod 1976 Mercury Comet was part of the Mountain Cruise to Milton and as usual never misses a NRMCC Maverick Comet event.
All the way from the town of Simcoe Dave and his wife brought their beautiful blue Maverick Grabber for the Mountain Cruise to Milton. This was their first Meet and Greet and we were so glad to meet them both. Thanks for travelling so far for our little event. (Where is Larry?) :)
This Orange and white Maverick Grabber belongs to Mike and his wife. They came all the way from Owen Sound. We greatly appreciate you making the trip for our Mountain Cruise to Milton and our Meet and Greet. When i first saw this cool Maverick i thought about the Motor Max 1/24 scale die cast Mavericks that were made in the mid 2000's. I love this big bumper Grabber.
And J's cool 4-door Maverick. With so few of these 4-door cars around it's always a pleasure to see one. J always comes out to our events. Thanks buddy, it's always great to see you at the shows!!!
Next up is Fred's MadMav. This Maverick is a stunner as it has just gotten a shiny new paint job and looks fantastic. It came on a trailer only because it was out racing the night before and as all racing entails, sometimes things break. Thank you Fred for coming from Orangeville and taking the time to trailer your car to our Meet and Greet. It looks great !!!
John brought his race Maverick again for a second year. It's always appreciated when someone takes the time to do the work and travel from Woodstock to go to our little Meet and Greet with car and trailer in tow. Love the new Maverick decals on the doors, a nice touch indeed.
And lastly we have Ron, aka the Daydreamer's 1972 Maverick from the Oshawa area. It has been quite awhile since his car was at the Meet and Greet. It was used for a long time to race after spending time as a driver, maybe this Maverick will be back on the road full time someday. Ron is truly the (OG) original guy when it comes to Mavericks and Comets in Ontario. Everyone in Ontario with a Comet or Maverick can trace knowing each other back to Ron one way or another. Honestly this whole Maverick Comet Meet and Greet event was started by Ron back in 2006. It was nice to see this Maverick back in the fold again. Welcome back Daydreamer!!!
A few more pictures from our most successful Meet and Greet ever.
And as all good things come to an end so too does the 13th Annual NRMCC Maverick Comet Meet and Greet. We want to thank all who once again came out to our event. A very special thank you to all who took the time to bring out your Comets and Mavericks, you are the ones that make this show happen because without your cars there would be no show! And remember, this year you were all part of a record breaker Meet and Greet. Thank you!
See you all next year.
And as always.........Bring out yer cars!!!!!!!!!!
While endlessly scanning the interwebs for Maverick Comet items we here at the NRMCC came across this Maverick peddle car. We make no claim to being the maker of this car, we just think it looks totally awesome and want one. Image your kid cruising the sidewalk in this future mini hotrod!
For more info on this cool Maverick peddle car contact Rogerio Ferraresi:
A note of information: Bare in mind that these Maverick peddle cars take time to produce. The one your looking at is a prototype with all others being made from this car. These cars are each slightly different and unique and will be a bit different from each other. The good thing is you will most likely be able to order a Maverick peddle car (or other cars) that will look just as you like or as your Maverick looks. I assume you can choose the color of your Maverick peddle car as well, make contact with Rogerio to find out.
This year the King Comet Maverick Car Club made our Road Trip to Beaverton 4 up to the Beaverton Fall Fair to their classic car show which was part of the fair. A nice turn out of classic cars and the return of a car that is near and dear to our hearts, Lunatic Fringe. It was so nice to see Loony back together and driving. Terry would be thrilled that it has stayed in the area to cause havoc. Here are a few pictures of the event.....enjoy!
First you gotta get there (which is part of the fun) in our little Comet convoy and of course a stop in downtown Beavertown.
We got our spot in the show on the grass. I have always loved parking on the grass, sorta feels like we are doing something wrong and are waiting for some old man in coveralls to scream, "Get off my lawn!!!!"
And of course it was fantastic to see Loony out again. Looks great and sounds even better. Terry would be proud!!
Lunatic Fringe fits in perfectly with all the other cars at the show.
Bo and Luke Duke, the Bandit and of course Buford T. Justice were all at the show. No sign of Rosco P. Coltrane though.
This beautiful 1969 Mercury Cyclone not only won best in class but best in show. A nice clean Mercury in every way possible.
After the car show at the fair we made a stop at the local Timmy's.
After Timmy's we finished off our restaurant tour with a stop half way home from Beaverton at the local Swiss Chalet.
And that was the King Comet Maverick Car Club's Road Trip to Beaverton 4.
''You've won a brand new car", ''that's right Bob''... ''a Mercury Comet from.....''

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.
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.

Mavericks & Comets seen in the wild.
This is an older Maverick in the wild sighting from way back on August 27, 2005 (before recorded time). My beautiful wife and myself were on a road trip in Chatham Ontario when we came across this '74 and up Maverick just cruising along the road. I had just enough time to get out my camera (before digital) and snap this picture and the Maverick turned off and was gone. Always keep a camera handy as you never know when you will spot a Maverick 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.
