Custom Auto Design and Shaping
Gum Springs, Virginia
Marty Martino grew up in the 1950s in Richmond’s West End, and like so many other car fanatics, his fascination was already at fever pitch while still a toddler. “This was really the golden age for automobile design,” Marty reflects. “They were all just gleaming, so forward-looking. They looked like the future.” At three years old, his mother asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up, and he told her that he intended to be a car designer.
