About “MAXX”

This is actually my wife Rose's car, and it's shown in her garage too (see MAXXINE), but since she doesn't hang out on Motortopia much anymore I thought it was time to show the car off in my garage too. It has over 65,000 miles on it, but I try to keep after it both mechanically and cosmetically and I like to think it shows. It's never let us down and it looks like a much newer car. The paint and upholstery still look like new, with the exception of a couple of minor "this's" and "that's" that any 7 year old car will pick up.

About “VALIANT”

I am a true car guy that likes to do 100% of my mods to my car... I may do only about 98% some stuff I have to outsource for lack of the proper skills that it would take to do it the right way. I am all about form and function; I want my installs to look as if they could have come from the factory that way! I want people to look at the car and wonder if something was stock or custom and have to take a second look to be sure. I don't have a problem helping out someone in need if asked. So if you have questions about something feel free to ask me...

P.S. I will post a few video to share...
