If you haven’t been following MotorWeek’s YouTube channel, you’re really missing out. Aside from the modern car reviews and news, they’re digging through their decades of archives to pull out some gems for our viewing pleasure. Some of the vintage reviews are brilliant, I’ve been a fan from the start. Over the last week, however, they’ve posted this series in five parts, a how-to video on Pat Goss putting together a Maxton Rollerskate “component car”. It’s really a great way to spend an afternoon watching this mini-series, and then searching ebay for a complete car, or even an incomplete kit. I’ve always wanted a Maxton, and this video series doesn’t help that desire. Maxton quoted a full build time for someone with ordinary tools to take just 50 hours. For the purposes of this build, they’ve boiled it down to just half an hour. Check all five parts out after the jump.
Part 1 – Visiting Maxton & Test Driving Their Car On Track
Part 2 – Getting Started
Part 3 – Continued Installation Work – The Engine Goes In
Part 4 – The Dash Is In, Fluids Topped Up, The Windshield Is On, Paint is applied
Part 5 – Final Assembly and Test Driving
