this is my favorite gen of comet, love the gt models and those wheels look great. with the 302 this thing is perfect for budget performance. If I were to ever buy a budget compact american muscle car this would be it.

What's with the newspapers?

Never seen a 70s Comet before .. those are some nice lines. I think I like this more than the 60ps caliente I used to cruise in.

What was the fascination with the bumble bee color scheme? (To be fair, I think recent Dodge Chargers have used this color scheme as well). Do black and yellow suggest speed? To me, the color scheme suggests improbable flight and a love of nectar.

Black and yellow - it's the predators colors - wasps, cheetahs, tigers - it's emblematic of the lone hunter, stingers and teeth.....and what's with the newspaper?

Everybody keeps calling this car a bee or wasp, no wonder it's got a newspaper stuck to it.

Badass Maverick, shame someone vandalized it with newspaper.

My first car was a 1974 Comet. Too bad it was plain white! Even worse, my brother upended it into a creek on our farm. That was the end of the Comet. It was a great little car, and I was an expert at popping the lock with a wire coat hanger. :-)

My first car was a 1972 Maverick Sprint, Red/White/Blue color scheme with a 302. I got it in 1977 and it was a piece of junk by then. Cars age better now.
