About the Owner, Jody Goodwill
Jody was truly born a gearhead.
Since he was 16 years old, Jody’s dad has owned and built classic/muscle cars. Before that, his grandfather was the owner/operator of a successful used car dealership and body shop.
Jody spent much of his youth hanging out at the body shop, learning to do bodywork and work with fiberglass to mold parts, in order to give a more streamlined look to cars and mini trucks.
Fortunately, he found that his mother’s talent for art had been passed down to him, painting his first car when he was only 16 (his dad’s 240Z).
In the early 1990s, he started customizing mini trucks and doing graphic paint jobs on these trucks. His work was featured in Mini Truckin’, Truckin’, and Street Trucks magazines.
Jody went back to school and earned a degree in graphic design. Spending several years doing graphic design for brands like Sara Lee, Ralph Lauren/Polo, Champion, and Hanes Brand, he missed his passion: designing, customizing and painting cars, motorcycles, and trucks.
That’s when SRM Paintwerks was born, May 2009.
Since then he’s done countless show quality paint jobs, custom work on classic/muscle cars, motorcycles, and trucks.
