The Last Comets

This 72 Comet was competing in the 7.5 class at Gateway this past weekend. I didn't get to see it run, but 7.5 is hauling the mail. The 71-77 Comets don't get a lot of mention so I thought I would post this. I also talked to a guy this weekend who has a sweet 69 or 70 Mustang and he told me his son bought his first car and it is a 70's Comet. Good to see these cars are still around.

More of a Maver fan but ya these are cool cars. Helped a friend with a Maverick FE power, ran low 11s many years ago.
I think I read they are more aerodynamic than Mustangs.
Remember GappnRoush's moredor ?

I guess I am partial to the early 70’s Comets, ( actually just about any year Comet)
In addition to my ‘64 Cyclone that at the present time undergoing a major transformation I one owned a couple of Comet GT’s. Although I sold them years ago I have been able to locate both of them and know that they are still around.

Neato Jim, would enjoy reading the write up if you happen to get to enlarging the print.

Thanks Fred,
Somewhere I have a scrapbook with all the articles and clips about my cars, I will locate it and shoot a better picture.
This weekend is the vintage drag race event at George Ray’s Wildcat Drag Stip in Paragould AK. I am leaving in the morning, it should be like going back in time about 60 years.
