If you love car and motorcycle restoration TV shows, then Iron Resurrection is a must see. You can catch the reality television show on Velocity, where the Texas-based Martin Bros Customs amazingly brings run-down clunkers back to life. While Joe Martin is the owner of the shop, a lot of credit for the business’s success should also be given to his wife, Amanda Martin.
Although she’s also a star on the show, she does a lot of work behind the scenes that makes the company become much more popular. You’ll normally see the guys like Joe, Jayson “Shag” Arrington, and Javier “Shorty” Ponce doing the dirty work, but if it weren’t for Amanda, the shop wouldn’t do nearly as well.
Amanda helps run many of the social media accounts associated with the shop, and if you take a look at the numbers on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, she’s clearly helping bring in lots of new followers and clientele. Additionally, she also promotes the merchandise and the shop’s website. The website showcases tons of their completed car and bike projects.
You’ll often see Amanda scouring Texas with her crew to come across some seriously unique items. What looks like trash to most looks like a profit to Amanda. Along the way, she’s also networking the entire time. Martin never really takes a break from scouting out potential customers. If you listen to her interviews, she’s very open about the fact that she uses the publicity from the show to her advantage.
Her job duties at the business are various to say the least. However, she’ll normally supervise the builds from start to finish to ensure satisfaction in the final product. Her organizational skills are pretty unreal, and she takes great pride in that. As a matter of fact, the whole Martin family is pretty business savvy.
Amanda Martin definitely has a face for television, and she also has the talent to keep the crew and the shop running efficiently. Without her, who knows if they would have seen near the success that they have so far. They wrapped up season four of Iron Resurrection in 2020, and season five is set to come out in 2021, so make sure you check it out! The process of rebuilding these hunks of metal is well worth the watch.
