Lot #625 - This PT Cruiser is the creation of Pat Maxwell of Maxwell Designs in Spring, Texas. He is one of the best in the business and his work has been featured in countless car and truck magazines along with many covers or feature vehicles. Pat Maxwell bought this vehicle brand new and personally handled every stage of the build. It was an extensive project that took over 4 months to complete. The car was fully disassembled at 15,000 miles and virtually every inch of the car was tastefully customized as it was put back together. First the body was modified with a PTeazer front bumper, grille and rear roll pan. A black base was then applied from House of Kolor and accented with flames made out of Kandy Gold Tangelo and Euro Red. The ghost murals on the hood and hatch of the Cruiser were done in Candy Red paint and are often seen in Maxwell's work. To create a unique roof design, an electric sliding ragtop by Webasto was installed. The Torch Red leather seats and carpet upholstery were done by M.G. III & Company, which complimented the dash and trim also painted in Torch Red Satin. The interior was enhanced with a billet steering wheel and door sills from B.A.D. Of course, the PT Cruiser would not be complete without an amazing sound system. Twisted Interiors from The Woodlands, Texas installed a 1400 watt Rockford Fosgate system that sounds as good as it looks. Some of the features are a CD/MP3 Player with remote, 6.5" Mids, 1" Tweeters, two 12" Punch Subs, Punch amplifiers and a custom built sub enclosure with billet trim. The suspension was fully customized by Extensive Metalworks in Houston. Air struts were installed in the front, custom reversed 2 link in the rear, 2600 Firestone air bags, a heavy duty compressor, a three gallon air tank and half inch fast valves. The entire exhaust system had to be customized to accommodate the lift system. The rear axle was narrowed 10" in order to fit the custom billet rims from Colorado Custom. The front rims are 19x8 and the rear 20x9.5 with a 6.5" dish. To add to the overall appearance, we recently installed a chrome hood lift kit with hydraulic struts and many of the engine parts were chromed, including the customized hood undercover. All the effort in customizing this PT Cruiser has been recognized by winning first place in every show it has been entered in, with the exception of two; in those shows it placed second. Some of these awards include Best in Show at the Houston World of Wheels Autorama, two years in a row. The various judges at over 30 competitions all validated Maxwell's work by awarding the car top honors every show.
