Locally Owned Auto Shop

Welcome to Rick’s Custom Rod’s & Auto Repair, where passion meets precision in automotive excellence. Established in 2010 by brothers-in-law Rick Calderon and Hans Mitchell, our business is rooted in a shared commitment to quality craftsmanship and a genuine love for all things automotive.

Rick Calderon, a Nyssa native, pursued his passion for mechanics by enrolling in and successfully completing the TVCC Mechanics program. His hands-on experience and dedication to staying at the forefront of automotive technology make him an invaluable leader in our workshop.

Hans Mitchell, also a Nyssa native, charted a slightly different course, obtaining his bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon and later earning his J.D. at Willamette University. Hans brings a unique perspective to the business, combining his legal acumen with a deep appreciation for the artistry of auto repair.

Together, Rick and Hans have cultivated a business that blends technical expertise with a personal touch. Our team at Rick’s Custom Rod’s & Auto Repair is dedicated to providing top-notch service, whether it’s routine maintenance, custom modifications, or intricate repairs. We take pride in our Nyssa roots, and our commitment to our community is reflected in the quality of our work and the relationships we build with our customers.
