  1. You say, "anybody will tell you is that the best way to drive an early 70s Ford is with a Mercury badge on the hood"

    Carroll Shelby would have disagreed... but he would still have liked this car.

    1. But he good friend Dan Gurney probably would have supported the idea.

    2. Shelby would've endorsed plastering "go fast" decals and stripes as well as dual Cherry Bomb mufflers if he could've made a buck.

  4. I really like the early Mavericks, and they can be made potent just by browsing the classic Mustang parts catalogs. I have not thought of a Comet for quite some time, but this one has lot of appeal.
