$30,000 Mustang GT Sweepstakes by Hurst ends on 11/15/2017. The sweepstakes prize Ford Mustang has a little more horsepower than my old Maverick that I drove throughout high school and college. I bet its more dependable too. My parents bought the well used Maverick for $400 when I was 16 and it sort of lasted until I graduated from MSOE. The emergency brake did not work, the tires were bald and the battery had to be heated up to start it in winter. I couldn’t afford the parts to fix it. The main brakes partially failed once in downtown Milwaukee but fortunately I was able to coax it slowly back to the MSOE parking lot late at night without attracting any undue police attention or doing any damage. It was still running in 1985 so we sold it for $500 at my fathers farm auction. At least we didn’t take loss on the deal.
