Wade has been selling sports cars in Marietta since 1978. After a number of years working at our local MG / Triumph / Jaguar and BMW dealerships, he started Marietta Sportscar Company in 1993. Marietta Sportscar is the working manifestation of the ideal garage Wade has imagined since he was a kid. "I want to know and love every car and bike that we sell, and provide advice and service that'll make it easier for our customers to love 'em too."
Wade grew up in Atlanta and is a product of Peachtree High and Georgia State University. He is married to Valerie Patrick and has two sons. He is active in Boy Scouts and Rotary, and is a nut for cars, motorcycling, bicycling, and distance running. He rides almost every day and is certified by Vespa and Moto Guzzi in technical (but you might not want him working on your bike).
