Our History

I’m Mark, and I love cars.

It started when I was a 16-year-old long-haired rock n roll drummer. It was 1973 and I had a lot of gear to haul, so I got a Chevy van and customized the hell out of it. There have been a lot of cars since then, but that one will always be special.

I have built cars all of my life and won many national awards. I take a lot of pride in my vehicles, and finishing a beautiful car has always been rewarding for me. I never intended to be in the restoration business, but a friend hired me to restore the ’68 Camaro she’d had since she was a teenager. After that, one recommendation led to another. Soon I had a team of skilled craftsmen and a 12,000-square foot shop.

For me, there’s joy in designing and creating something new. I pride myself on my meticulous work, and I make sure I hire people who feel the same way. Our crew here at Godspeed are automotive enthusiasts and the best in the business, and we believe in putting time and attention to detail into every job we do.

I’d love to talk to you about how we can design and create your next project.
