A HISTORY OF EXCELLENCE
With two generations of automotive excellence behind him, Mark Makeig, and his wife, Lisa, along with her brother, Gilbert Nava, and their parents, Armando and Martha Nava, established Showtime Custom Coach, Inc. in October of 1986.
In the early days, Showtime specialized in limousine manufacturing, specialty vehicle construction, automotive furnishings, and vehicle armoring. Over the years, Mark’s dedication to the craft transitioned from custom builds into high-caliber collision repairs for the mountain communities and surrounding Inland Empire. Through superior craftsmanship, a commitment to quality, and dedication to today’s technology and training, Showtime transformed from a small, one-man operation into the impressive family-owned repair facility that it is today.
