Did you know:
The Ford GT's roof was SO strong that it broke the roof-crushing machine Ford uses to test their vehicles.

Alternatively, Ford just couldn't build a machine strong enough to crush a sports car -- just depends on how you wanna look at it.

Here's a look back into the fut-
Ahem. Past.

On March 19th, 2005, John DeLorean, an innovative auto industry executive and founder of the DeLorean Motor Company, died at the age of 80 in New Jersey.

DeLorean grew up in Detroit, where he worked as an engineer for the Packard Motor Company. Later he would move to General Motors, where he was credited with developing the Pontiac GTO, the first "muscle car," which launched in 1964.

What a life! Thank you for everything you brought to us, John.

Happy Monday!
Did you all know that the first known paper speeding ticket issued to a driver in the United States was made out to Harry Myers in Dayton Ohio in 1904?
Mr. Myers was traveling an incredible 12 miles per hour in an 8 mile per hour zone, when he was noticed by a bicycle police officer! He was not arrested, just issued a ticket for his crime.

Our Story

Established in 1978. Gary Rains first worked in a 2-car body shop behind his house in Fairmont. Repairing cars was not his full-time job; he worked 70+ hours a week for a meat packing company downtown, but still found time to help out friends and family while he taught himself about auto body repair. Two years later a local dealership went out on a limb and gave him a single car to repair. He fixed it, painted it, cleaned it up and returned it to them by the end of the same day. That led to another car, and another car, and soon they hired him to manage their entire service department. In 1978 he went out on his own and started Gary Rains Body Shop. Because of his commitment to quality, the business went from a humble 2-car garage in his backyard to six full-service auto body shops that still remain in the family today.

Thanks for getting me fixed up quick and fixed up right. 👌
I would just like to say THANK YOU to Gary Rains for helping me with my tailgate on my car! He was very nice and helpful and didn't hesitate to (showed me exactlywhat the problem was) and fixed it on the spur of the moment !! I will definitely give recommendations every change I get! Thanks again!! You made my week! ☺
I took my car to have body work done last week and I was amazed at the quality of work that was done. Rocky and his team did a great job. Not only did they repair the body damage, but cleaned the inside as well. Thanks Rocky!!
I LOVE I LOVE MY CAR!!! MR GARY AND HIS EMPLOYEES WERE NICE, COURTEOUS, AND REPAIRED MY CAR IN A TIMELY MATTER. I WILL DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS SHOP TO MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY. THANK YOU AGAIN MR. GARY💪💪💪
