An avid art collector, January McPhail fills the lobby of Marshall Motors with the work of local artists, hosting a wine-and-cheese event for every artist featured. A little further inside, her brother Thom Marshall conducts a crack team of ASE-certified mechanics who tend to the armada of autos parked in their 18,000-square-foot facility. Specializing in 16 types of German and Japanese vehicles, the Marshall mechanics keep roadsters running with services ranging from preventative maintenance to air-conditioning, brake, and transmission work. Though they issue 32-point inspections along with most oil changes, they can also get to know vehicles through a 97-point inspection prior to service. After the thorough inspection is complete, they furnish customers with a detailed report of the car's condition and the secret piercing it's been hiding on its hubcap.
