Mick Vallantine started Vallantine Motor Works in his garage in 2000. Soon after that, the city made him move the shop out of his house, and that's when he bought the old building we are still in today.
Sometime around 2012, Mick was growing tired of Seattle, and its winters and was looking to retire. Meanwhile, Dana and I were growing tired of the "dealership" life and jumped at the opportunity to acquire the small shop. June 2013 it all came together, and we took over Vallantine Motor Works.
