What motivated you to MOD your Maxima?

I’ve always loved the Nissan Maxima…specifically the 4th gen. When the 4th gen was first released in 1995, I liked it from then. When the first Fast and Furious movie came out, I was hooked on it. I bought mine from an older gentlemen, and joined,, an shortly after. After seeing all the builds, it wasn’t long before I started changing things, although they were mostly cosmetic for the longest time.

After owning it for almost 9 years, I decided that she needed to be faster, so I made it happen. – Nick Gopaul
