Scott’s Hotrods ‘n Customs started as a one-man-band with Justin Scott Padfield in a 2,500sq/ft shop. He soon added 1 employee, and then another. Scott’s Hotrods officially became a business in 1996. Since then it has only grown. The shop in Ventura, CA grew to roughly 10,000sq/ft total between all of the suites it rented in two buildings until 2005 when the building owner and the city of Ventura came to an impasse. Scott’s found an open 8,000sq/ft building in the adjacent town of Oxnard, CA. Justin started looking to move somewhere more beneficial for the company and its customers soon after that.
Justin traveled all over the United States trying to find the right place to move his successful & growing hot rod company for nearly 10-years. Knoxville, Tennessee finally won for the following reasons: Centrally located to car shows, Centrally located to the customer base, 2-Day Shipping covers 80% of the US Population, Knoxville experiences 4-seasons, but is rarely ever snowed in, no state income tax, affordable housing, a better quality of life for the employees and more!
Justin and the team at Scott’s packed up the entire shop and moved EVERYTHING to Knoxville, Tennessee in April of 2018. Scott’s Hotrods is 100% in Knoxville and 100% happy with the move. The shop and team are continually improving and growing. Stay Tuned for many updates coming.
