Judyth Piazza chats with Jim Grady, President and CEO of Max Media Group
Jim Grady, originally from the great state of New Jersey, has had a love of cars and just about anything that runs, flies, or floats since childhood. Jim`s father has been in the automotive business his whole life, first with Firestone and then with several independents, and currently heads up the family business.
The Grady family headed south to Clearwater Florida, and Jim graduated high school in Largo then went to St Leo College. From a young age through adulthood Jim has been in and around the automotive, marine or RV industry. Jim`s first car, a 1972 GTO, was the catalyst for his love of old classic American muscle cars. Jim`s current broadcasting venture with Stew White allows him to hang out with my friend of over 25 years and talk to really cool people about really cool stuff!
His past ownerships of classics include a 1972 GTO, 1963 Skylark Convertible, 1971 Olds 442 Convertible, and a slew of Jeep CJ7`s along the way. Jim currently drives a 1969 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Convertible that is in the process of being restored.
Jim recently started the first ever eBay drop store in Palm Harbor, Florida. Ez Auctions & Shipping grew to 4 locations and in 2005 went public via a reverse merger becoming Snap N Sold. Snap N Sold then purchased Hot Auto Web, online seller of high end collector automobiles, planes, boats, and RV`s. Mr. Grady left the company in 2006 when it was sold.
