Maniacs Garage is an automotive lifestyle brand made up of a few average guys. It is the brainchild of John Malo, who has a long history in the custom car scene. His projects go way back to the Mini Truckin' days of the 90's, the Import Tuner scene of the early 2000's and all kinds of other cool rides in between.
The idea for Maniacs Garage started with our Instagram page in 2005. As the page grew to over 300K followers we realized that it was time to build our own project car. Through a series of circumstances our first project ended up being a 1949 Ford that we body swapped to a BMW 335i. It took several guys and one girl, nearly 2 years of weekends to complete the project. The car was displayed at the 2021 SEMA Show representing Hostile Wheels.
We call this project Born49ain (Born Again) because the old Ford has been completely Re-Born as a new BMW!
We are currently working on other projects including a 1962 Mercury Monterey, our 2020 Toyota Tacoma and others.
You can see our builds on our YouTube channel, Instagram and Facebook pages. Make sure you SUBSCRIBE and give us a follow!
