“My passion is making peoples dreams come true.”



Tony Stanko, President of Tony’s Total Performance, Inc., was born in Niles, Ohio on November 12, 1979. From birth, Tony was introduced into the automobile industry by his father, Tony, a longtime worker at General Motors in Lordstown, Ohio. From the time Tony was old enough to walk, he was in the garage helping his dad work on his own cars. Before Tony was even old enough to drive, he was working on his own car, a 1981 Z28 Chevy Camaro, so that it would be ready for its debut on his 16th birthday. Tony served in the United States Air Force as an aircraft mechanic from 1998-2001. In 2002, Tony paired up with Jerry Dixey, owner of Jerry’s Classic Transportation shop in Youngstown, Ohio. Together, they turned a 1998 Chevy Cavalier into a bad ass street rod that has won many awards all over the United States. In 2007, Tony and his wife moved to Florida where Tony could pursue his lifelong dream of owning his own shop. After a few years of settling into life in Florida and working at the other shops, Tony pursued his dream in 2010 and started Tony’s Total Performance, Inc. (TTP). Till this day, TTP continues to raise the bar in the custom automotive industry.
