How it all began
Late Model Throttle, LLC has been a thought on my mind since I began to take interest in working on different vehicles throughout the years. Throughout the past 13 years, I have enjoyed working on my own vehicles as well as those of friends and family members. I decided it was time to take my passion and start a company that I could truly invest my time and effort into doing something I enjoy. So, we started Late Model Throttle in the Winter of 2008. With the help of my best friends, this company finally came to realization. After many years of working together on vehicles, we have started a company that we enjoy working for and creating a customer base that we truly care about. As we continue to grow we look forward helping you with your vehicle wants and needs. Customer satisfaction is important to us. We are continually looking to add new services to accommodate the needs of our customers at Late Model Throttle. We thank you for your business and look forward to working for you.

Shop owner, tuner, technician, Jeff does it all! Jeff is a self-taught performance enthusiast. He started LMT in 2009 part-time after work with a few like-minded friends and couple lifts. After purchasing the DynoJet in 2011, Jeff quit his job as a machinist and committed himself into LMT full-time. He's never looked back since! He owns a 900hp twin turbo pump gas corvette, a 1966 Nova wagon drag car with a 427 LSX with twin 76mm turbos, and a 2013 Duramax to haul it all around. In his spare time (when he has some), Jeff likes racing, boating, snowmobiling and spending time with his family, girlfriend Kristyn, and puppy Diesel.

Travis is a graduate of MATC with a degree in Applied Science/Ford Asset Program. He came to us after working at a Ford dealership for 5 years, but loved doing performance projects on the side. Now it's his full time gig. Travis likes spending time with his daughter Mia, girlfriend Sammy, working on his CTS-V, skateboarding, snowboarding, fishing, and has a really fancy toolbox.
Cody started off as a customer at LMT and now he is part of the team. Cody is
a graduate of the Automotive Technology program at WCTC. Though he has the
education and skills to work on the cars, his career goals are more on the service
manager end of things. He came to us from Road Track and Trail where he served as a
service writer since 2011. Cody has a lot of different interests as far as performance
vehicles go. He has a 1977 Chevy Mud Truck with a 454 big block, has gone through a
few Mitsubishi Evos, a dirt bike for motocross, and raced snocross for Polaris for four
years. He is excited to bring his knowledge and passion to the table at LMT and expand
our services. In his spare time he likes riding his dirt bike, playing with his dog Boost,
hanging out with his friends and family, and working on his mud truck.
Kristyn joined the LMT team in 2013. She is a graduate of Carroll University with a background in sales and marketing. Although she is new to the car performance world, Kristyn keeps LMT moving smoothly and makes sure that every customer gets the attention they deserve and leaves with a smile on their face. When she isn't at LMT Kristyn likes baking/cooking, boating, and spending time with her daughter Alyssa, boyfriend Jeff, and puppy Diesel.
