You would have to look hard to find the “Martin Brothers Customs” shop. It’s hidden just off Highway 290 near Henly, Texas (10 miles west of Dripping Springs).
But, you don’t have to look hard to find the new Velocity TV series featuring principal owner Joe Martin and his wife Amanda. The series just started, and airs each Wednesday night at 9:00.
In the series, mild-mannered Joe and exuberant Amanda, find cars in serious need of attention, and then bring them back to life, usually with custom touches far exceeding the vehicle’s original design (first time viewers would never guess that Amanda’s other career (and personna) is as a demure and professional banker at a local Dripping Springs bank).
Joe has a lifetime’s experience with metal fabrication and pin-striping. Prior to moving his operation to Henly a year or so ago, his Dallas-area shop focused more on motorcycles than cars. Now the business has expanded to include a wide variety of motorcycle, car, and truck projects.
The new show is called “Iron Resurrections” and airs Wednesdays, 9:00, on the Velocity channel.
Check it out.. you’ll be glad you did!
