Meet The Crew
We have an amazingly strong crew that has years of experience in multiple areas. We do a little bit of everything and have knowledge and experiences in many areas; body technician work, painting agriculture & trucking industry, collision repair, electrical, welding and all your blasting needs. We have decided to call ourselves the “Misfit Toys” because the description fits all of us to the tee. We are the ones who see things differently and we are the ones who change things. We invent. We imagine. We explore. And (when necessary) we create! Your items we send out the door we deliver with our blood, sweat and tears and we hope our passion is evident in your finished product.
The owner and glue of RPM. Randy got his love for restorations at a very young age; 15 to be exact. You may have seen this guy in a Bandag uniform, or more recently sporting a John Deere Logo. Randy and his wife of over 30 years, Chris, have two children, both of whom both live in Dubuque. Randy’s hobbies include: tractor restorations, driving his 1970 “Plum Crazy” purple Charger that he has owned for nearly 40 years, and spending time with his family.
Steve is a native to the Cedar County area. His passion started in high school when he attended an Auto Body class, and since then Steve has been hooked. This led Steve to opening his own shop, which he ran for over 30 years. He joined our team in 2018. His avid hunting and fishing skills keep him busy when he is not working on restoration projects. You may know Steve by C.B. or Machine Gun.
Curtis was raised on a farm with two brothers. This led him to drive his first tractor when he was five, and he has been working on equipment since he could walk. Curtis owns land and cattle south of Tipton, where he spends his free time. He stays busy outside of the shop with farming, custom baling, plowing snow, and, more recently, spending time with his wife Brittini and daughter Magdalena (Maggie). Prior to RPM Revival Curtis spent eleven years working as a technician at John Deere.
