GET INSIDE THE MINDS OF
THE PARKER BROTHERS
Born and raised in rural South Carolina, Marc Parker (the older brother by 18 months) and his younger brother Shanon, learned early on about thinking outside the box. Growing up with limited funds, the brothers found unique ways to make amazing vehicles (starting out customing bicycles and go carts) by looking at things with a fresh approach. Even back then, their creations caused a stir and stood out from everything else. To this day, those same fundamentals carry Parker Brothers Concepts to the next level on every project. With an amazing staff of custom fabricators, welders and craftsmen, the projects are only getting bigger and crazier. Follow Marc and Shanon along the way as they create extraordinary vehicles while they “Dream Big… and Build Bigger”

MEET OUR TEAMMEET THE INSANE CREW OF MISFITS THAT MAKE UP THE PBC TEAM
Chief Designer as well as a Fabricator, Shanon takes the crew in futuristic direction with his designs and leads PBC towards the unbelievable, awe-inspiring concepts for which PBC is known. Everything starts with the design and PBC is ahead of most in this department.
Chief Engineer and Fabricator for PBC, Marc uses his mind to create the insane design ideas that Shanon brings to the crew. Not afraid to think outside the box, Marc will find a way to make almost anything work. The genius behind making these concepts a reality lies within him.
Ron Sarnes is the Shop Foreman at PBC where he coordinates the rest of the crew and keeps the projects rolling along smoothly. While keeping the crew on task and on target, Rons input and leadership on the builds is a vital part of the process. He is always there to lead the crew through the rough times and long hours to make sure PBC looks good in the end.
The Executive Assistant to the Parker Brothers, Justine handles the inner workings of PBC from orders and events to rentals plus website and media inquiries. Her willingness to work thru the concept process, sourcing unusual parts and products at all costs makes her contribution to the team a signifigant one for sure. PBC would have a missing piece of the puzzle without her.
Donnie Barnes Jr.
Donnie is a lead fabricator for PBC. Accelling in mechanics and bodywork, Donnie keeps the vehicles running smooth and looking straight. His expertise is invaluable to the process as without the vehicle running properly, the build will never be truely completed.
The newest member for the PBC crew, Ian is honing his fabrication skills while learning from the seasoned crew members along the way. Already a competent welder, fabrication skills seem to come naturally to him. And because sometimes you just need some extra muscle, Ian is there in a moments notice to let a helping hand and PBC is all the better for it.
Our resident Flow Jet operator as well as a fabricator, Jon is a longstanding member of the PBC crew. His skills with the Flow Jet are impossible to work without and each project has a multitude of parts directly from his hands. Shanon and Jon also have a love for all things comic and sci-fi related so it makes for an even closer family unit around the shop.
Mike is a lead Fabricator with a multitude of skills not the least of which include carbon fiber and composite work and welding just to name a few. An all around jack of all trades, his insight into each build is an imeasureably neccessary part of the process.
Nathan “Turbo” Guthrie
Turbo started with PBC when he was fresh out of school and has grown tremendously with the help of the more season crew members. He is now a valuable asset as he accels in electrical work as well as all around fabrication. His socks are colorful too.
