Rick Row Has Lifelong Devotion to Fixing Cars

Rick Row, the owner of North Bay Bavarian, has immersed himself in cars since he was very young. It began in his teen years when Rick worked on cars with his dad. When he entered high school, he enrolled in shop classes, and after graduation he immediately went to work for a dealership. Rick worked as a mechanic during the mid-1970s at Santa Rosa Mazda and at Toyota dealerships. A short time later – in 1978 – Rick began working at an independent BMW repair shop. He discovered a passion for BMWs in 1979 and he never looked back. When Rick wasn’t working, he could be found mountain biking. Rick now has eight grandkids who he relishes spending time with. His hobbies include snow skiing, water skiing, wakeboards, and he does some BMW racing, as well.
