Reid and Johnson Motors is shutting its doors after 50 years of serving the greater peninsula area!

My brother Tyler and I wanted to reach out to all the friends and family who have supported Reid and Johnson over the years... we are planning a surprise gift for Bob and Kathy and would love for you to be a part of it if you like. Read on for more info...

First, a little history of Reid and Johnson Motors for those of you that do not know:

Ed Reid, our grandfather started Ed Reid Motors in 1968 as a centralized car dealership in Port Angeles, WA specializing in late model, low mileage cars, trucks, and suvs. In 1971 he acquired his business partner, Stan Johnson and together they became the Reid and Johnson Motors on 1st and Race St. that it is still there today. Reid and Johnson continued working together until 1982 when Ed retired and left his partner Stan in charge. Bob Reid, started doing odd jobs for his father's business at the age of 13. He fell in love with automobiles and learning how to be a great salesman. While in college at Central Washington University, he would come home in the summer to work on the lot and help in any way he could; being a salesman for Stan, and helping learn the ins and outs of the business. In 1987 with a wife and two kids, Bob was offered the opportunity to purchase the business from Stan. With much trepidation and a little doubt he accepted the offer and became the new owner of Reid and Johnson Motors at the age of 27.

Our dad is a hard worker - he has incredible integrity and love for what he does. He is passionate for the community he serves and has been recognized throughout his career (he was a Lions Club Member, President and Chairman of WSIADA, Port Angeles Auto Dealer of The Year and many more).

Growing up, our summer family vacations mostly consisted of attending the WSIADA auto dealer association's annual convention in Lake Chelan. Our dad was submersed and committed to running a professional, honest, and profitable business. We remember him (on more than one occasion) running down to 'the lot' to answer a customer's question at the drop of a hat, often on his only day off. Our home phone number and his cell phone number are still printed on the front door at the shop.

He has not been alone in this journey, our mom, Kathy, has played a huge role in our family's success. She has a strong work ethic and like my dad always modeled the importance of hard work and community. She took care of all of us and made sure someone was present at every single extracurricular activity. She stayed up until the late hours paying bills with my dad, went on weekly buying trips to the car auction, and often delivered cars to their new owners. Our parents paid for both of us kids to go to college and have never had any reservations about it. Together they made incredible sacrifices that truly show their passion for intentional work ethic and supporting their community in any way they could. They sponsored multiple sports teams and donated to many causes along the way.

Our dad will be retiring in the beginning of June and we would love to have your help in celebrating their hard work and the 34 years they owned and operated Reid and Johnson Motors. Our parents have not taken much time to themselves in the last 50 years. They have both spoken of their dreams of traveling with their main goal to visit Italy someday. My brother and I would love to be able to send them on that iconic trip to Italy for their retirement gift as a surprise and thank you for all they have done and all the connections they’ve made.

Thank you all so much. We know Reid and Johnson Motors will look a little different after Bob has retired, but the charm and legacy that is left in the small building will not be forgotten. In the next few months, please head down to 1st and Race and say farewell to my dad behind the desk or under a car, we know he would love to see you.
