I know there are a few boards dedicated to these cars as well as some ford forums having a section for the maverick/comets, and have a classifieds section. You will probably find more results searching for something like ford maverick forum, but they deal with and have classifieds for comets too.
I always liked those little cars for some reason. Maybe cause they are a bit different then others. One of my friends back in high school had a little 70's yellow comet with a racing steering wheel and an 8 track player he bought an adapter for so he could play cassettes in it. It had a little six cyl and it sounded like a timex the way it ticked. Also funny seeing a guy who was 6'2 250 lbs driving it around. But still kinda a neat car.

Kind of hoping someone here had an old one sitting in the bad yard rusting away, waiting for me to take her home and love her.

Yeah they were pretty cool. I found a few, but the ones I found, the owners think they have a muscle car worth gold, one guy is asking over 14K for a stock 73, yuk!
