Hi, I’m Matt Michelson

A god fearing, hard working, American man.


When I was a kid, I dreamed of owning my own shop. My career path has been purposeful for training me to accomplish that dream. I trained and practiced classic restorations for 15 years, served four years in the Marine Corps with specialized training in diesel repair, received an Associates of Applied science through Ohio Cat’s Think Big Program, and worked ten years as a top level heavy equipment technician at Ohio Cat. Through my 15 years of experience in the repairs and restorations fields I am confident I can serve you.


As an active duty Marine, I serviced amphibious assault vehicles. It was my job to make sure they were always ready to go.


Holly and I have been happily married since 2007. Matthew is our oldest, Adah and Ayana are twins, and Naomi is our youngest and a little spitfire. This is a family business at my home shop, they learn alongside me, help me, and they also enjoy serving the Michelson Repairs and Restorations clients.
