M.A.V.`s Maverick Vid 2010.wmv
On the street scene the car was darting around alot while spinning, due to
the right rear tire was low on air (found this out when I got home.) It
normally doesn`t do that! This was the first trip to the track with the new
converter and the cars trap apeed slowed down from 112 to 107mph. also No
gain in 60ft.s or E.T. .....converter is going back for Adjustments!
Father's Day Surprise
My son returns home from the Army on leave after serving time in Iraq to
find our old, beat-up 1974 Ford Maverick fully restored in showroom
condition. He did not expect to even see the car in the garage let alone
repaired and in mint-condition!
Viper Maverick VS Ford Ranch Wagon - Project Car Dilemma
Have you ever been waist deep into a project car build and just when you
feel it's hopeless...another project lands in the driveway? Welcome to my
car guy confusion.
As you may know (if you don't just glance at a few of my other videos) my
Maverick project keeps getting derailed. Whether it's lack of funds, time,
space or energy, I keep losing momentum on that project.
I'm sure all hot rodders deal with this dilemma at some point.
So now I've got this cool '66 Ford Ranch Wagon and it's rough but it's a
runner and the more I drive it, the more I like it.
In this video I pose the question...
When is a project too much and how do you choose which project car to work
on when something more reasonable falls right in front of you?
I've never been this close to giving up on the Viper Maverick and putting a
for sale sign on it.

Dodge Viper V10 in a Ford Maverick Build Video 3 - Engine Removal / Oil Pan Issues
This is video blog three of the Viper powered Maverick build up. Today I
was able to pull the engine and transmission out of the car so the next
phase of modifications could be made.
First, because the engine is mounted so low in the vehicle to fit under the
stock hood...the oil pan is going to need fairly serious modification to
give a practical amount of ground clearance.
Next, I wanted to turn the engine upside down to dump the dog food that a
rat had stashed in the intake manifold galley and get ready for the cam
swap which will be in an upcoming video.
Thanks for watching and I'll keep the videos coming as often as I get a
chance to work on the car!
Dodge Viper V10 in a Ford Maverick Build Video 2 - New Work Space / Inspection and Plans
This is the second video entry for the build up of the Viper Powered FORDGE
The first was when I brought the car home from storage and for many reasons
never got farther on it. Then my friend and mentor Mike Fennel offered me
a spot in his shop and I jumped at the opportunity. With the help of my
good friend Jamey Smith, who has built and restored dozens of cars
(including several 69 Dodge Charger General Lees), we loaded the Maverick
on a trailer and cleared a spot for it at Mikes.
I took this chance to have the two of them look over the car as it sits to
see if there is anything they would change before we move forward.
Turns out, the car is in pretty good shape!
Now it's time to chase down some very important parts and see if we can get
the thing started. My budget has been completely demolished over the last
few years with other projects and just surviving so I'm going to have to be
very creative on funding.
This video series will try to keep fans of the build up do date with the
status and try to stir up interest for any sponsors that might want to
I would like to give a huge thank you to http://flowmastermufflers.com/ for
already kicking in the tubing and mufflers for this project. Every bit
helps and this thing is going to sound awesome.
Thanks for watching and don't hesitate to comment or send me advice!
