Nat and Jeff

Nate and Jeff


Jeff Horioka has had a passion for cars since he was a small child. He grew up going to car shows and car rallies with his dad and could never get enough of it. After buying, fixing and selling cars for over 6 years, he constantly struggled finding a reputable body shop that could get the repairs done in a reasonable amount of time, that was good quality and for a good price. So Jeff and his brother (Nate) decided to turn their passion for cars into their full time career.

Nate Pratt has a very similar upbringing as Jeff since they are brothers. Nate grew up riding dirt bikes, going to car meets, and tinkering with RC cars. Nate always helped Jeff with flipping cars but being the younger brother, he had to get a corporate job to save up a nest egg. As soon as he could financially make it happen, he entered into business with his brother.
