Need to do this again.
An impromptu decision to attend the 20th annual show at Chester NJ lead to a short yet enjoyable experience. The weather really helped this year although a very brief light shower toward the end probably freaked some car owners out. Light winds, temps in the low seventies and overcast meant walking around comfortable without getting a sun burn. We got there around 1:30pm just in time for lunch. While there are some lots packed with classic iron it's both sides of Main Street with parallel parked cars that are the attraction. Cars lumber up and down Main Street as you check out where you'll grab a bite to eat or the wife spies a cute blouse. We stopped at Pren Kitchen grabbing an outdoor table by the blue McLaren. I enjoyed the lamb burger topped by gorgonzola cheese with bacon and a side of Mac 'n Cheese. Thinking about how I really should have gotten a few pictures of Carmine's '74 GTO.
Ford released a small pick up truck today.
It's not trivial. Ford launched a smaller pick up truck called Maverick, with a hybrid power train that supposedly will sticker for under $20K. Everybody is talking about it. That's not really our scene but the Ford Maverick Stallion is our bag.
For 1976 the Grabber was dropped for a new appearance package called Stallion. Check out the pics. The Stallion package was also available on Mustang II and Pinto. Unfortunately this bad ass look could be ordered with mere mortal power trains. It could also be ordered with a 302 V8 and is a great platform for other Ford V8 engines...no GM LS please.
Here is one for sale in Live Oak, Florida. Their asking price is $14.7K, a former magazine feature car with a worked 302.

I'd drive that, would you? Anybody know of any other hot Maverick Stallions out there? Hit me up.
