Bring out yer cars!
Thanks to all that came out to the NRMCC Secret MavCom Christmas breakfast at Mo's Family Restaurant on Sunday December 9th, 2018. Word has it even a GTOOOOO owner came out too. :)
See you all again on Jan 13th, 2019 for our massive New Years MavCom breakfast.
And a few pictures of our breakfast.
And than Christmas came to town........ :)
To all that come out to our MavCom breakfast.......thank you and have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!
Santa,all i want for Christmas is...........
Any color will do............. :)
Thanks to the fellas today for bringing out your Mavericks to the pop up NRMCC Maverick Comet breakfast at Wimpy's Diner in Mississauga.
It was nice to see each other before the Christmas machine starts up.
And the trip to the NRMCC Pop up breakfast had to start somewhere and it did, in a leaf covered Comet mess. It can't all be pretty.
The cars at Wimpy's Diner, not to bad for November as most people have put away their rides for the winter. With our long winters we are in no rush.
J and Larry Winter. Glad to see Johnny Cash made it out to our breakfast. J and Comrick317 after a good sound breakfast.
I don't need to say anymore than what this sign says.
After our breakfast this is most likely our last mini meet before the..... snow.
And just like that, the boys were gone and our NRMCC car season was done.
Thanks to all that came out with their Mavericks and Comet. See you at the next MavCom breakfast and as always........Bring out yer cars!!!!!
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 are not claiming 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 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.
John even gets to bring home his old fenders, i'm sure they will fit under his bed. Lets hope he never needs them but it's always good to have spares.
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. :)
These next pictures are of Dave's Comet on his journey to the paint shop from Mississauga for a full restoration. This is the same shop that beautifully did John's '68 Comet. Our trip was on March 23, 2018 and the pictures are from two vantage points, one, following the Comet and vantage point two, the boys inside the Comet. Enjoy.
Following Dave's Comet is nice but being in Dave's Comet is better!
The Comet arriving at the shop, when it leaves it will look stunning.
One last look at how she is ......... before........... how she will be.
And into the shop she goes.
And as always the NRMCC loves to end it's trips at a restaurant and Wimpy's seemed to be just the right place. Mavericks, Comets, old Rock 'n' Roll, records on the walls and good food. That's a great ending to a fun trip!
On Monday April 2, 2018 the NRMCC went for a tour way up North to see Dave and John's Comets and to see how Dave's car was coming along. We also had to find out what parts are needed to be replaced to complete the car. Here are the pictures of our trip.
It's something to see for the first time the Comet apart knowing what it will look like when it's done. Hard to believe we drove it up here seeing it with missing parts. All will be worth it in the end!
When doing a complete restoration you never know what you will find under the paint. In this case the drivers side fender was a dented bondo filled mess. Can these guys fix it.......you bet your ass they can!
Part of our trip was to see John's Comet at Don Palmer's garage and how it was coming along. It is almost complete with just a few things to finish and then soon will be the drive home ready to start the cruising season. Here are a few more pictures from our Comet tour. Enjoy.
It's funny how in the end everyone always ends up under the hood. It has never been cleaner, even when a new Comet back in '68.
The NRMCC went for a road trip again to see Dave's Comet on April 21.Here are more restoration pictures from our visit to the shop.
The Comet has now had the trunk lid and engine bay painted. The rest of the car is mostly in primer and the hood has been fixed beautifully as well as the driver side fender. Check it out.
But first a slight detour to visit Mad Mav to pick up Vince's '68 Comet hood.
With Vince's hood tucked away in the truck, now onto the shop.
Now remember Dave's driver side fender, here it is now and yes it was fixed all in steel and not filled with bondo. I think this is a fantastic job, well done.
Here's a shot on the other side of the fender, nice neat and clean.
What's new with Dave's Comet, a few pictures with some shiny new paint.
More pictures of Dave's nearly finished Comet from our tour, May 10, 2018.
We weren't excepting all the striping to be on the Comet when we arrived but were thrilled when we saw that that much was done. The car looks great and is nearly ready for the drive back home to NRMCC headquarters.
Hey pal....... back away from the Comet!!!!! :)
What's better than one Comet.......how about two Comets. Yes this one is painted with the same paint that is on the "big'' Comet and painted by the shop that did the full size car. And yes there is some assembly required.
Next set of pictures will be the trip home all painted and pretty.
With John's Comet almost finished there was the matter of the tranny needing a little work, nothing major, plus a few odds and ends to tie up and some fine tuning and then the restoration of this beautiful family heirloom will be complete. More on this to come.
Finally Dave's Comet was finished and ready to be brought home. The paint and body work were done and the car looks great, all that was left was a rim change and some goodies to be added under the hood. But first the trip home in this beautiful 72' Comet. Here are the pictures of our trip back to NRMCC central. Enjoy the ride, 'cause we sure did!!!! :)
But first a few pictures of Dave's Comet before it leaves the compound.
And now........the trip home.
So i says to Dave, i says, "What happens if you step hard on the pedal?"
Oh i says.......wow!
And as our odyssey of two Comets and one Maverick concludes, here are the finishing shots of the completed cars ready for the start of the 2018 cruise season. Engines, Transmissions, paint and body work.......on my!
Larry's Mighty Maverick, the way they all should look and sound!
Larry's Maverick making an appearance at the NRMCC Early Summer MavCom breakfast in Mississauga at Wimpy's Diner. A good place to start the cruising season of 2018.
Dave's Comet is finally finished, complete with new wheels for that ready to go down the strip look. He decided to stay with the original colour but added the GT stripes and body coloured wheels. Add in some transmission work and the whole package makes this Comet a stunner all day long!!!
The picture below is one of Dave's first trips out with his finished Comet. This shot was taken by the MCCC from the roof of the Canadian Tire at the Dundas and 403 Friday night cruise in Mississauga.
Looks absolutely fantastic, here at the Georgetown cruise!
And lastly there is John's rare '68 428 Cobra Jet Comet. We have left this car till the last to wrap up our Two Comets and a Maverick story. The reason....... because John has owned this Comet since the mid seventies and has a lot of years in this car. It always was part of the family and like family, you love it bumps and all. When John's best friend Terry passed away in 2017 he wanted him to fix up his Comet like new. Terry wanted it so much that he made sure after he was gone that it would happen for John. So after much work, money, love and time this Comet was finally finished and given the love and attention that it deserved and a friends wish for his life long buddy has finally come true. This Comet now looks like it should look.
Here are a collection of pictures of John's Comet, made perfect, made possible by Terry. John you are a lucky man and you made your friends final wish come true as well as he did your's.
We will let the following pictures speak of the years that have passed and to the years to come for this rare, cool 1968 Cobra Jet Comet.
The man and his beautiful machine.........say no more!!!!
Hope you enjoyed our Two Comets and one Maverick, a winter restoration odyssey, the end of an epic.
Maverick Comet video of the........ ah...... moment. This video is not in English but the Maverick in it really is something different. Check it out.

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!

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.
