Jeremy Hatfield, shop owner, handles all communication with customers, marketing, ordering of parts, working on vehicles, etc.  Jeremy opened Dirty Rides Inc. in August of 2017.  Prior to opening the shop, Jeremy owned a construction company for 20 years.  Although great at building homes and businesses, Jeremy dreamed of working on cars with his brother like he did in his childhood with his dad.  He was encouraged to follow this dream and made it a reality.  In his spare time, Jeremy continues to work on cars at the shop (for customers and on his personal cars), continues to do small construction side jobs, and spends time with his family and friends.  Jeremy had a mission in his construction company “Making your dreams your reality” and this mission carries through to his restoration company.  Jeremy really is dedicated and passionate about listening to his customers to make their dream vehicle their reality they have envisioned. Jeremy takes a great deal of pride in his work to ensure that each vehicle leaves the shop with top quality and craftsmanship.

Jennifer Bardell, office manager/human resources specialist, handles the billing, invoicing, payment, paperwork, etc. Jennifer was the inspiration to the start of the company. When Jeremy was discussing his dream of being able to work on cars and open a business, Jen was the encouraging voice behind him. Together they started this business adventure and have been thriving ever since. When not working at the shop, Jennifer teaches 1st grade full time and takes care of their family. Helping others and helping make others’ dreams come true is what inspires her day in and day out. The thoughtfulness and detail that the team puts into restoring and finalizing vehicles for customers is truly inspirational. It is so great to be part of this amazing team.
