History

W & W Collision Center



In 1973, brothers Tony and Bud Waldon ran into each other at a car dealership in Cornelia Georgia. While talking, Bud suggested that they start a body shop business together, saying that he thought they “could make a real good run at it.”

Both brothers had previously worked for local body shops and were car enthusiast, so with a few tools, a paint gun and a small shop, they opened W & W Body Shop. Bud’s words proved to be correct over the years. The business grew as they did. Two bays grew into more bays, more equipment, and more people.

Over the years, Bud and Tony did more than build a business, they built long lasting relationships in the local and surrounding communities. They also built quiet a reputation for building Hot Rod cars. One with a love for the original muscle car and the other with love for high octane motors and a lot of Chrome.

After serving the community for 39 years, Tony and Bud closed the shop in 2012 for a much-deserved retirement. However, Bud and Tony both have a continued love for building cars and enjoying friendships made over the years. Both brothers will tell you that it is the people that they miss.

Now, six years later, Tony and Bud have the privilege of of seeing the shop open again. Tony’s son-in-law and fishing partner has reopened the Business as W & W Collision Center. With the leadership of Tony and Bud, W & W Collision Center will once again repair vehicles and operate with one goal in mind; To impact the people and community as Tony and Bud have for so many years.
