Meet the team
Patrick Tierney, co-founded JDMAuctionWatch in 2013, with over 10 years experience in importing specialist cars to Ireland and the UK he along with Regina saw a niche in the market for importing custom and performance cars to order. Patrick is a web developer by trade which enabled him to integrate Japanese auction software into the JDMAuctionWatch website, meaning for the first time buyers from Ireland and the UK no longer had to use Japan based websites to view auction vehicles.
Patrick was born a car nut and has unrivalled amounts of useless information on all makes and models! Having been active and well known in the Irish car scene since the early 00’s he has personally owned well over 100 cars varying from Mini’s to M3’s and everything in between, a regular driver at track and drift day’s his real passion however lies with classic JDM cars and in particular with the legendary Toyota AE86 so much so that in 2006 he established www.AE86irl.com Ireland’s AE86 Owners club, which he still owns and runs today.
Whatever your car of choice Patrick will take pride in helping you find the best possible example and seamlessly get it from the streets of Japan to your driveway.
