    Guy down the road has one sitting in his driveway for a long time. I see him today and ask if he wants to sell it. He says "make me an offer" I, thinking I have no idea say " let me get back to you" So I ask the GT brain trust

    Its got a good solid body, interior is Ok at best, has a bench seat but he has some buckets to put in it. Strait 6, auto (says the tranny may need work) I cant imagine more than $800. My daughter is going to be 16 in June and she has ooogled this car for over a year and we thought it would be cool to work on it together.

    Any ideas?

    If you're looking for a car that's cool to work on together, grab the Maverick.

    It's a POS design, and you'll do more working on it than driving.

    They weren't a good car when they were new. That one couldn't have gotten any better over the years.
    Pass on it.

    69 Maverick - ask yourself

    What is the single most important thing a parent should look for in a car for their 16 year old?

    Unless your daughter wants to be a crash test dummy I would find another car.

    500 dollars. Bring it home, fix it up and drive hell out of it.
