CLIENT FEATURE BY: NESBIT AGENCIES Feature: R/T Garage A Story of Service, Passion, And Automotive Excellence F ounded by Troy and Laura Martinson, the R/T Garage in Belle Plaine, Minnesota, is a Mopar muscle car restorationand-repair shop specializing in concourse, performance and pro touring. With a keen eye for excellence and a high standard of service, clients who choose to visit Troy and Laura never leave dissatisfied with the work and know that everything that can be done will be done. Troy and Laura have similar histories, both of which stretch back decades to the time they were children (though they did not know each other at the time). At the age of ten, Troy fell in love with the Dukes of Hazzard television show. He cultivated the dream of owning a 1969 Dodge Charger, and by the time he was fifteen, he was finally able to scrape together enough money to purchase one in 1984. Laura grew up in a family of boys. Her father’s love of sports cars was passed along to Laura and her brothers. In particular, Laura’s brothers had a keen interest in muscle cars growing up. Being the 1970s, there was no shortage of muscle cars to be interested in, either. Working in restoration and NHRA drag racing for over thirty years, Troy then met Laura, and they knew they had found a match with each other. They chose to strike out on their own and start the R/T Garage to serve as a base for their shared passion in life. Since then, it has grown to become one of the most well-known garages in the muscle car community, not only for the service that they provide but also because of their collection of vehicles. One of their many accomplishments is the invention of the REV-N-NATOR. Voted as the best aftermarket product of 2012, the REV-N-NATOR was created in an effort to solve the issue of many 1960s–1980s vehicles not having a rev limiter. The REV-N-NATOR fills that niche and acts as a Mopar-specific ICU for cars from that time period. It protects the motor from over-revving. It bolts in using original equipment and does not require any additional wires or boxes. Seven different rpm limits are available, from a 3,000 rpm test all the way up to 7,500 rpm. The settings can be changed with the simple touch of a button and are displayed using LED lights (which double as a digital tachometer). The REV-N-NATOR comes with its own list of “commandments” that characterize it and set it apart: true boltin and correct stock appearing, easy-touse rev limiter, LED display with digital tachometer, 10HP–40HP gains, built-in flywheel, custom dwell curve, powdercoated surface, made in the United States, three-year warranty, and money-back guarantee. Ultimately, Troy and Laura aim to provide the very best service that anyone can get. Their goal is to do the best they can for every customer that comes into the doors of the R/T Garage. Given that level of service, it should come as no surprise that they have no shortage of work. When you work with the R/T Garage, you can be assured that you will get the best service and parts that money can buy. Done right the first time, every time.
