BIO

Born in 1950 in Eugene, Ore., Bill Presley grew up on the family farm in Cottage Grove where he learned the lifelong skill of having a strong work ethic, and the value of earning a dollar through hard work. At an early age, Presley became fascinated with gasoline engines, anything with wheels on it, and all things mechanical. When he was 5 years old, he saw a picture of a 1955 Buick and knew that one day he would own one. When he was 14 years old, Bill paid for and built his first car, a 1936 Ford 2 door sedan. During his teen years, Presley and his two brothers became well-acquainted with the Cottage Grove police. After finishing high school in 1970, he went into logging where he moved up the ladder in that industry until he decided to do something else.

Around 1987, Presley opened his own cell phone business, and soon after opened a car audio business (both in Eugene). Bill joined the MEA in 1989. In 1990, Presley obtained his private pilot’s license. In the early ’90s, Presley sold his two businesses and opened Westside Classic Buicks, a vintage car restoration and hot rod shop, now located on Franklin Blvd in the Glenwood District. Presley’s shop is a time machine that will take a visitor back to the ‘40s, ’50s and ’60s. One of his favorite things to say and do is to “build something out of nothing.” Bill is President of the Loose Nuts Street Rods car club of Eugene, where he currently lives.
