1993 Chevy S-10 Overview
My Daily Driver, with over 185,000 miles, a 2.8 and a 5 speed. I love this
little thing. It starts every time, has never stranded us, and runs great.
The stock clutch is even still holding up! It's been totalled (frame bent)
twice. I've heard bad stories about 2.8s but with routine maintinence, I
believe this motor will probably last another 185,000 miles.
Turbo Maverick Sleeper Outruns Drag Car
Josh Dillon's '73 Maverick Grabber doesn't look like it should run mid 6's
in the eighth mile, but it does! And outruns lots of full on drag cars.
Josh has driven this car on several road trips, and constantly beats on it.
The car looks rough, and even sounds sort of rough, but has a 75mm turbo that makes all the difference. On this
pass, the car made 12 pounds of Boost and runs a 6.62 at 105 miles per hour in
the eighth mile. The rough exterior and stock steel wheels make this
Maverick a killer sleeper!
The car has a 460ci big block Ford with stock block and stock crank. The
heads are stock castings that Josh ported at home. turbo is a Borg Warner S475, and Josh built every
piece of the turbo setup on a budget.
Transmission is a C6 automatic with stock hard parts and a Dacco torque
converter. Rear end is still the stock 8-inch!!!!
Maverick vs. Duster
Here's my very first drag race. My car is the Maverick with a 302. The
Duster barely beat me, but if I had done better off the launch I would have
Driving the 1971 Ford Maverick From Fast Five
Here in the United States the Ford Maverick is remembered, if it's
remembered at all, as the car that replaced Ford's original compact, the
Falcon, back in 1970.

73 Maverick Street Run
My brother test driving his 73 ford maverick... sorry about the audio
during the flyby, no way to disable it on the cam...
My 1970 Maverick
This was my 351W powered Maverick.Stock bottom end, cast heads W/home port
job, small solid cam, 8" convertor, C4 and 3.89 gears.I was very proud of
it, should have kept it!!!
Need to add I got my old car back a year later.I let it sit 6 or 7 months
and finally built a 347 for it 10-1 compression budget aluminum heads ,
Parker intake and demon 750.
Best so far is constant 11.70-11.72 but we marked the slicks and they are
spinning on the whee(60ft 1.65-1.70 should be 1.54-1.55 like it was, when I
add screws).Still haven't put the screws in to fix the problem. (Haven't
ran it since 2010)
