-- RMD GARAGE World Premieres Wednesday, August 2 at 9PM ET/PT Only on Velocity--
(New York) - Ralph Holguin lives by one motto: "Don't dream it, build it." That philosophy has fueled Holguin, a Mexican immigrant and high school dropout, to take a car wash business he started at 19 and build it into the RMD Group, a premiere full-service marketing agency whose work is embraced by top automotive brands. Within RMD Group, Holguin has created one of the hottest automotive restoration shops in Southern California. His RMD Garage fully restores and customizes classic cars into show-stopping, remarkable vehicles that fans across the country crave. Now, Velocity is taking viewers inside the automotive restoration side of Holguin's business in the all new series RMD GARAGE, beginning Wednesday, August 2 at 9 PM ET/PT, where they'll see imaginative, outstanding creations including a 1958 Chevy Apache Dream Catcher, a 1962 Bel Air Bubbletop, a 1957 Lincoln Continental and many more come to life.
"Ralph is incredibly charismatic, passionate and full of energy for his projects and clients. His boisterous personality fuels the impeccable work RMD does on all of their restorations and customizations," said David Lee, Vice President of Development and Production of Velocity. "The RMD GARAGE series gives our viewers what they enjoy most - a window into the process of the team's automotive builds. The talented RMD team serve as an extension of Ralph's family and we can't wait for our viewers to spend time with them."
From a sprawling 45,000-square foot facility with more than 75 employees, RMD Group caters to client requests of all types from corporate exhibit services to custom design. On RMD GARAGE viewers will catch the team customizing a 1972 Triumph Bonneville for the O.G. Motor Show, transforming a 1955 Chevy Bel Air Convertible into a reception desk for a corporate client, and building a 1967 Lincoln Continental for a local graffiti muralist who needs a ride to store his spray paint essentials. RMD also partners with Velocity's BITCHIN' RIDES star Dave Kindig to completely revamp his Kindig-It Design trailer into an eye-popping mobile exhibit space for upcoming car shows.
The RMD GARAGE premiere episode on Wednesday, August 2 at 9 PM ET/PT features a 1969 Ford Bronco that is restored and customized for SEMA Show 2016 and a decked out 1960s Volkswagen Bus for a local tech company. Nicknamed "Urban Madness", the Ford Bronco receives a modernized grill, custom webbed leather seats and a matte army green exterior paint job. The team also tackles a classic VW bus as they transform it into a conference room with a custom kegerator for computer software company alteryx(R). Tasked with transporting the bus into alteryx(R)'s corporate office, the RMD crew has no other option but to use a 50-foot crane to go through the building's window.
