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. Please contribute in the comments section with advice.  Thanks for watching and don't forget to subscribe and share these videos!

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 Maverick. 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 help. I would like to give a huge thank you to 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! Jason Lewis
