Dee Vyper: Mad Max Cars
In this episode we chat with Dee Vyper of Mad Max Cars in Bonney Lake Washington.
Mad Max Cars creates custom vehicles to exceed their customers exceptions. Are you a Mad Max Fanatic? Perfect, the team at Mad Max Cars can build a replica of the Interceptor complete with the right hand drive. Perhaps your tastes run towards Greased Lighting or a General Lee replica? No matter your desires (but depending on your budget) the team at Mad Max can help you.
When Dee watched Mad Max for the first time his world changed. He just had to know what that car was! Turns out the Pursuit Interceptor is a 1973 Ford XB Falcon GT. Years later Dee was able to purchase a Falcon XA which he had converted into a Red XA Bat replica. After purchasing the XB Dee kept hanging around the shop. Later Dee became a partner in the company.
Mad Max Cars started out by importing Australian muscle cars into the US. Eventually the company began to create movie cars. They have recreated many famous movie cars. Greased Lighting, Kitt, The Ectomobile, and a DeLorean Time Machine just to name a few.
Dee shares stories about cars, movies, music and more during our chat.
