Project MAD MAX.
 
 For my son who just turned 16.  Enjoy your new car Max!!  May you get many decades of enjoyment out of yours as I have from mine...   Drive defensively.....   Respect this Japanese classic.   If i hear you peeling out around the corner, your in deep $%&!,....    Dad!

This is the earliest picture I have of MAD MAX.  Its the one tucked in the very back parked perpendicular.  Front Center is CRX#2 the Concourse, Right Black is the Beater.  Picture taken around 2001??

I noticed these cars sitting in storage get plastics broken, mold/mildew and rodent issues.  I brought Mad Max home from the barn and stripped her down for long term storage.  Pulled out all the interior and external plastic components.  Stored components in one of my climate controlled rooms.   Note, the other car under the cover is CRX #6 1984 Straman build #10 of 131 stramans built.  Pictures taken around 2008.

So cool!  Hopefully he comes on here and shares his adventures with the car!  Very cool car to have at 16.  Make sure to remind him not to take the first offer to buy it!  Haha seems I get an offer every time I take one of mine out.

Some early pixs taken when I was building the workshop.  These were posted years ago.  Lost when server change over recently

I just don't have many pictures of Project Max from the early days.  Have to strip off that old tint.....

Very cool,  I pulled the old tint off of my 86.  What a pain!
