Joel A. Rothke

After working in Corporate America for over twenty years as a Systems Analyst & Director of Operations, I thought it was time to leave that sterile office environment. I had always wanted a career that I knew I would be passionate about and engage in something that I love because life is just too short and unpredictable to be miserable behind a desk and monitor all day. With a comprehensive knowledge of the automotive world from previous business experiences and from childhood collecting all scales of diecast cars by the tens of thousands, building models and then once old enough to drive, building and racing Muscle Cars.

I always knew that one day that passion would be something I wanted to pursue & continue when the opportunity in life presented itself. That opportunity came to fruition and reality back in early 2006 and I haven’t looked back since.

We started in Wayne, NJ then after a lot of effort with the town of Montville, NJ we were happily approved into the town of Towaco, NJ. As the business grew so did the need for additional space with each move which is why we moved into the town of Boonton, NJ where we further evolved the business needing even more space. In April 2017 we moved into our current location of Livingston, NJ where I have the opportunity to see the business continue to evolve as well as my passion. I look forward to every day that I can be around these beautiful, historical and performance packed automobiles. You will always find me with a soft Micro-fiber close and at arms-reach to wipe these beauties down daily, thus the nickname Wipes! I hope to meet and see you in this place that I cherish and hold close to my heart
