Owned a 1971 Comet (Fast little car)
I owned a 1971 Comet for 5 years and spent a lot of time restoring it. Same body style as the Maverick. It had a 302 under the hood though, it definitely got your adrenelin pumping. What a ride that was, especially with the shift kit in it. Rubber in every gear. I got the car up to 115mph once, but the road ran out fast, still had some pedal left though. Bought it for $350 and sold it in '96. My, how time flies!?!
I have a '46 plymouth now, just ran out of time to work on it. I should dedicate some time soon.
