Mark began his career in the automotive world at 12 years of age when a friendly neighbor gave him a 1972 Austin Mini Saloon that was not running. Mark and his twin brother along with a family friend pushed it two blocks home and thus began Marks involvement with the auto industry, in particular the world of classic cars.

Since the early 1980’s Mark has both owned and/or restored over 160 collector cars and motorcycles, which have included show winning European models, Musclecars from the 1960’s and 70’s, 1950’s classics, late model performance models, custom Harley Davidsons and Japanese motorcycles and Streetrods. Mark’s interest in all makes and models have allowed him to gain a very diversified knowledge of all types of collectibles and his personal collection currently includes eight European collectibles, three Musclecars from the 1960’s and 70’s, a Model A Streetrod, 32 Ford Hotrod, a few 1950’s American Classics and an array of Harley Davidson’s and some custom rigid frame motorcycles.

Mark’s experience as both a collector and restorer/builder allows him to appreciate from first hand experience, the time and monetary investment that is involved in both owning/restoring a classic/exotic or building a streetrod or custom motorcycle. Mark has also been a licensed technician in the automotive field for over 25 years.
