Midwest Rod and Restoration
Midwest Rod And Restoration started with a dream, a tool box, and a loan from the bank. But to go back even further, it started with a hobby that got out of hand.
Midwest Rod And Restoration owner Shawn Maine had always been fascinated by mechanical things and loved tearing them apart and putting them back together again. As a child, he built model cars and learned how to draw and paint well. At age 10 he dissembled his bicycle, repainted it with a spray can, and reassembled it. At age 15 he bought his first car and began learning everything he could about how to repair and fix it. By 16, he was already running his own sign-painting business and ventured into his first official full automotive paint job, completing more and more paint jobs over the next few years.
Shawn ensures the shop also gives back to the community. Midwest Rod And Restoration is a member of the Community Club, City Council, PTO, and Wapello School Advisory Committee, and Shawn is a Keck Theater Player.Close Full Bio
