Tony started working in the auto body industry in the mid-1960s. This family business was Martins’ Auto Centre, a quality paint, body and import parts center. He also has formal training and education in the field, attending a vocational technical school for four years, studying auto body repair and welding. Since then, he has completed accredited certification courses in the industry, including I-CAR, PPG, 3M, NACE and Car-O-Liner.
Not content with just repairing cars, he is active in the collector car community, including Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing, Austin Healey Club Rocky Mountain Region, and the MG Car Club Rocky Mountain Center. In 2008 and 2009, he was chairman of the Pikes Peak Hill Climb Vintage Car Group.
Tony founded RCW out of his desire to provide top quality and independent auto body repairs and customizations customers can trust. He built a team of highly-skilled professionals to help make Rallye Coach Works the best option for your vehicle.
Tony and Geoff met as co-workers at a local Volvo dealer in 1992. Geoff worked as a master mechanic while Tony worked in the collision center. Geoff offered to help Tony build a 1964 Volvo P1800S as a vintage racer. The two ran the car for five seasons, doing very well, finishing in the top three positions often and first a few times. Tony and Geoff developed a friendship that’s lasted through the years.
Geoff was one of two technicians from North America to win an all-expenses paid trip to the Volvo factory and test track in Gothenburg, Sweden for his accomplishments on a technical skills test as part of a worldwide Volvo competition. This demonstrates Geoff’s intelligence and command of technical repair knowledge. In fact, the Volvo tech line would call Geoff on occasion to solve issues they couldn’t figure out.
Geoff left Volvo to help RCW grow. We lean on him for any mechanical challenges that come along. Geoff also assists with disassembly and assemble of vehicles. We are a better company because of him. Geoff has over 40 years of automotive experience.

Rich learned the auto body trade at an early age. Rich’s father, like Tony’s, owned an auto body shop. Rich and Tony met around 1995 while working at a local Volvo, VW, Audi and Mazda dealership where Rich worked in the paint department.
