CLIFFORD CASOLLA

OWNER & MANAGER

Marshall's meteoric rise to success centers around Cliff's ownership and unprecedented automotive talents.  He began building custom hot rods with his father at the tender age of six and has never stopped honing his creative prowess.  As the son of an avid classic car builder and discerning art lover, he grew up in an intimate automotive environment developing extensive appreciation and knowledge of everything on wheels.  In addition to cars, he has a rich background in motorcycles including domestic and foreign brands.

 

Cliff's ability to combine custom paint, custom fabrication, custom design, and custom body work with expert electrical, mechanical, and repair assembly is truly unique and unprecedented in Northern California.  He views his team members as family and runs his business with a care and personal attention rarely found in today's business landscape.

 

Born, raised, and residing in Sonoma his entire life, Cliff attended Sonoma Valley High School and is integral participant in numerous community endeavors.  When not working overtime at Marshall's or completing his own custom projects, Cliff and his dog Luna can be found on his mountain bike shredding the local trails.
