Re: Graveyard Cars Fans
The shop is about 12 miles from me. I've been in several times to buy swag.
Marks wife is genuine, Alyssa is as well. They really do have that little Chihuahua running around the office barking. Mark was willing to stop and say hi and seemed to appreciate his fans(I'm one of them). I saw Dave, Royal and I swear I saw josh though I thought he and Alyssa were divorced by now. His shop is full of cars as is that side lot. His wife said they are booked for years doing cars and the show has really opened up the world to them since they specialize in Mopars. I think he will restore any make though as I saw, what appeared to be anyway, a Orange 69 COPO Camaro and red 427 Vette in that front room you always see them working in.
The shop is in a older industrial/residential part of Springfield, Or. Opposite end off of main street he used to be on. I think he still owns the old shop and now leases it out to a body shop ironically.
As has been covered on a recent show, he has started cloning wing cars and does several a year for buyers who I've heard supply the drive train or install it themselves. He does all levels of restoration work and all stages.
He owns the production company that produces the show.(the Division) and does very well with it.
