  1. Ok. I understand why you guys are kinda skeptical about this car. Just to clarify, my uncle (who has TONS of experiance in a shop environment and works on older cars) will be coming with me on this journey to go and look at the car. We will both be looking for rust (i know where to look and i know he does too) and we will both be getting it running. I will check under the trunk mat for pin holes. Im just saying, i do know what to look for but i will have a cerified mechanic who has gone to school and stuff come with me to double check. I'll check break fluid levels and top them off if needed.
  2. I have already asked the lady most of the things you told me to ask in your reply. They bought the car from an old lady for their kids for when they got older. They got old enough and the kids decided they didnt want it. That was about 2 years ago. The lady says they have been starting it once every year. It has the 4.1 litre 6 banger in it.

I am definately not going to just believe what the owner says. I know i can get burned if i was to do such a thing:D I do know what to look for and i will also have my uncle Chad with me to determine some things and double check after im done. I have used craigslist quite a bit. I'm way more equainted with motorcycles than cars but i know the basics. I dont plan on really restoring this car. I want to make i
  4. Hello everyone. Thank you for all the comments on my last thread, I really appreciate it. I finally got around to talking with the lady that owns The maverick and she says that everything is solid all the way around. No rust holes through the body Anywhere except for the few small ones in the engine compartment. Also the frame is in great shape. She said the only problems with it at the moment Are the bad gas and flat tires on the driver side. Im pretty confident that this car, beings it is older, has a mechanical fuel pump under the hood? I figured i would just get one of those little 2 gallo
  5. PS, just so you guys dont think im a rich litte monster who gets everything given to him, i figured i would clarify.. this is the very first vehicle my parents have ever bought for me. The KZ1000, all the parts it took to get it running, all the work, i did that:) im sorry but everone on these types of forums seem to judge me because of my age so i figure i would clear that up:D
  6. Well, im new here and im looking for an opinion. My real name is Timothy and im 15 years old. since christmas time is here, my mom decided to go crazy and get me somthing to drive. I wanted a crappy little dirtbike to fix up and then beat the **** out of but i lost interest in that idea since i have a 1981 KZ1000LTD waiting for me for next summer(i Bought and built this bike) Then I found this car on craigslist for 300 dollars and im wondering if i should get it. its a 1970 Ford maverick with the 4.1 litre straight 6 i believe.
