Had a Maverick with a straight six back before anybody heard of metrics. Don't remember the cubic inches. 289 seems to ring a bell for some reason. I know you could drive that car of a cliff and it would still purr like a kitten. Had it for three years and sold it to a dealer for $600 more than what we paid for it. He advertised it the next week for $300 more and the ad said, "Runs great".I had a 2.3 liter in my Pinto. I drove that thing to hell and back. It always ran great.
Maybe he was talking about the Boing carburetor. :ban:Oh, and the thread title is misspelled. It's Boeing not Boing.
Fugly. But I guess you're not that interested in my (lack of) aesthetical judgement :gig:Now that the Phantom Eye is flying, what does the learned populace here think about it?
