Ride of the Month 

December 2012 Ride of the Month

The Nissan Maxima originated in the late 1970s from an upscale six-cylinder version of the bluebird released as the Datsun 820. The mid-size entry level luxury car was marketed as the “four-door sports car.” Soon after the Maxima name was introduced and soon after it started carrying the “Nissan” badge. Since then each generation of the model has had some changes.

The December Ride of the Month owner Austin first acquired his Maxima when he turned 16. His mother was the previous owner of the car. Since it was fully paid for and well kept, he didn’t complain. Instead he began the journey of creating the machine he calls “Maxine!” He chose the name Maxine since it’s a Maxima and he thought the name sounded perfect for a classy car.

In the beginning, he didn’t plan on lowering his ride. However, after joining the scene and hanging out with the guys in the “hellaflush” and slammed” groups, it just started going that way. Since then he has continues attending many local events and has taken a few road trips to attend some further away. Along the way he’s earned a lot of respect and attention because Maxima’s are not very popular car for modifications. Since Austin drives her around daily in her slammed status, Maxine has been making a name for herself locally and online.

There’s still more to come from Maxine, like some racing seats, harnesses and a harness bar. In addition to new seats, he plans on doing some more work on the interior. Though the wheels look good now, they will also be changed as well. Maxine was actually sitting lower than she is now, but she came across some of those “low life” problems, so Austin slightly raised the rear to prevent tire damages on the new set. After some more modifications, she’s going down low again.
