A Letter from the Owner

Blake SiebeShop Manager, Owner

Blake Siebe - NWAS Owner & Shop ManagerMy passion for cars is deep rooted, as a child I could identify cars based on their headlights or tail lights at night on long road trips I took with my family. I have been a car enthusiast all my life and have always been meticulous of how I keep my personal vehicles. In my free time I research new products and will never stop experimenting to find the best results possible. I also have a small Frenchie named Olive, who accompanies me to work everyday & has become a bit of a shop mascot for us here at NWAS. I take great pride in NorthWest Auto Salon, our dedicated employees, the reputation we have developed, and the level of work we produce on a daily basis.

Tim ConnorPPF & Vehicle Wrap Director

Tim-Connor-NWAS-1My interest in cars began with my father’s ’62 Porsche 356 Karmann Hardtop. In my twenties, I was into restoring multiples of Classic Mini Coopers. I have a deep-rooted passion for classic cars and an extensive history of experience in the automotive industry, with over 14 years of film installation, pattern design, and CAD under my belt. I’ve worked at companies such as Stonegard, Accutint, and Auto Armor before finding my way to NWAS; as the lead in-house clear bra & wrap installer I am proud to be able to offer my skills here, all while being surrounded by a great team!

Josh DaileyDetail & Reconditioning Specialist

Josh Dailey I grew up around cars, in a family of car enthusiasts. The first die-cast models I ever owned as a kid were the Bugatti EB110 followed by the Jaguar XJ220. My dad was into Mopar — anything from old Chargers to newer Cummins diesel trucks. My Uncle loves Porsches; brothers and sister all have Volkswagens, so being into cars just came naturally to me. I bought my first car in ’07, and since then I’ve done everything in my power to keep it running & looking like new. My work at University VW helped lay the foundation for my work as a detailer, building my skill set and knowledge of automotive reconditioning. I’m thankful for the opportunity to grow through NWAS. It’s great to be part of such a reputable shop & come to my dream job every day!

Tomas VacaDetail & Reconditioning Specialist

Tomas VacaMuch like my co-workers, my love of cars came early. As a baby, I was quite fond of riding in the back of my grandparents ’32 Ford Victoria up long, winding mountain passes. All the road trips we took in that old car was a big part of what spark my interest in automotive. I didn’t spend a lot of time around the garage, but I can remember playing for hours on my bedroom floor with every Hot Wheels I could find until I had to go to bed. When it comes to full size rides, I associate most with all things classic — including my personal “vintage” Datsun pickup! Being a part of the team here at NWAS is a bit of a dream come true, and it continues to fuel my enthusiasm for all things automotive.

Ben LevyDetail & Reconditioning Specialist

Ben LevyThe first time I drove a car, I wasn’t even close to legal age. Yet, I was permitted to drive my parents’ cars around the corner – and into the alley behind our house – to wash them. The thrill of being behind the wheel, and the supreme satisfaction of a spotless, “like new” looking vehicle has only grown stronger as I’ve aged. Today, my world is bumper-to-bumper with cars. I’m surrounded by friends who share my passion for all things automotive: collecting, modifying, and with the NWAS team, detailing. For me, detailing is much more than an occupation, it’s a devotion.
