All right. Come on in, sit right down, and enjoy the site. The more the merrier. And another build to watch. Glad you could join up and looking forward to you build. You know, that Maverick would make a great Pro-Stock clone. Just saying, heh. Let us know your plans, like motor? suspension? to race or just cruise? Inquiring minds want to know. I sold a turbocharged '73 Trans Am to build my '63 Catalina. It was bought by a gentleman up by you in Laurel DE. Anywho, welcome, welcome, welcome. Mark L

Welcome! Nice Ford(s). You and I have probably been to the same events. I'm about an hour from you in South Jersey. Im just above AC. Did you ever go to The HotRod Hoedown when it was at Kahunaville?

thanks again everyone! str8axle- yeah i went to a bunch of those but that was when i was even poorer than now and had no car hahaha.
looks like for now i'm putting a cammed 302 in the gasser. looking for a somewhat reasonable tunnel ram to top it and either fabbing up my own fender wells or going through the hood with 8 pipes.
i'll get together some pics and start a build thread soon

Mark L- mav's pretty much street. tearing it down this winter and throwing 380hp small block and T5 at it. gonna be fun, already got 430 gears and a 9 in it.
