We believe classic car ownership should be fun, not a headache...
It all started with the restoration of a BMW 2002 almost ten years ago. Some parts were readily available, while others nowhere to be found. One product at a time, we began to reproduce parts for classic BMW's, eventually branching out into upgrades, apparel, and more!
Here at The Paddock, the customer comes first. In fact, the inspiration for most of our products has come from conversations with enthusiasts, just like you. Have an idea for a product? Don't hesitate to send us an email and let's chat! We aren't limited to BMW's, either - we've made parts for Toyotas, Porsches, etc...
Most of our parts are made in-house, right here in Seattle, Washington. We may not be the cheapest supplier in the business, but with us, you know you're getting quality parts and unparalleled customer service.
Nate's first car was a 1977 Toyota Celica, so you could say vintage JDM is in his blood. With a degree in Vehicle Engineering and nearly a decade of woodworking experience, Nate is our engineering and manufacturing whiz. Where the rubber meets the road, Nate is the one prototyping new parts, refurbishing used parts, and heading production. To see more of his work check him out on Instagram at @topshelfturning
Riley grew up going to the local Seattle race track, now called Pacific Raceways, where he was first introduced to the BMW 2002 some twenty years ago. With his background in design, entrepreneurship, and passion for the 2002, he founded The Paddock to give back to the classic car community, one part at a time. Riley handles our customer-facing aspects, returning emails, processing/shipping orders, and the likes.
