In June of 1985, Pan Marquez was given the opportunity to originate a body shop at the location he was currently working at as a body technician. His focus was to perform high quality auto body repair and refinishing, and to showcase his craft that he had mastered so well. He began repairing mostly any vehicle that came in the shop. As his reputation was built, the shop later became the facility where local Lotus and Pantera dealerships sought repair for their vehicles. By the mid 1990’s, Pans Coach Craft remained busy working on a variety of jobs from complete restoration paint jobs on classic cars, to collision repair and refinishing.
