Joe Martin brings new life to old iron at his shop Joe Martin Customs.
Working with his wife Amanda, and best friend Shag, this custom shop oversees every phase of restoration from design, fabrication and mechanicals, to the final paint job. In this latest series, the Martins face the physics conundrum of trying to fit a 6’5″ former football player into the cab of a 1967 Chevy C10.
This tall order requires customization of the firewall, motor, frame and interior, plus a custom paint job. Another customer wants to surprise his wife with major upgrades to her ’68 Corvette convertible. But working with the fiberglass body soon brings on headaches that threaten both the car and the shop to crack under the pressure.
