Gary and JeanAnn Martin are dedicated Great Racers who have swapped to different cars through the years. Before their most current Chevy II, the Martins rallied in a 1938 Ford coupe affectionally known as “Maxine”. The car is Great Race-prepared in every aspect and finished in the Top 5 in its last Great Race appearance. The Martins have rallied this car extensively and will include the speed and performance charts with the car. Here are some specs, but if you’re interested in more pictures or info, please contact Gary Martin directly at 502-338-2740 or [email protected]l.com.
