Butch Bockmier

President - COO

Butch co-founded Park Place LTD in 1987, and what started as a small wholesale dealer in 1987, Butch has helped make into one of the premier full service special interest dealerships on the West Coast. He has nearly three decades of experience in the automotive business and puts this expertise to work overseeing much of the day-to-day operations of Park Place.

With a passion for collector and special interest vehicles, and especially vintage Corvettes, Butch ensures we always have some of the most interesting and diverse inventories of collectable cars on the West Coast. He also spearheads Park Place’s participation in many of the major collector car and highline auctions, including all of Barrett-Jackson’s events. 

Butch lives in Bellevue, WA with his wife, Michelle, and their daughters, Stacia and Alexa. For his ultimate “Dream Garage,” he says he would have a hard time narrowing it down, but when pressed would pick a ’57 Continental Mark II, a carbon fiber bodied CRC “62” C5 Corvette finished in Torch Red with a red leather interior, and a Black Superformance Cobra, “like the one I already have!”.

David Bingham


Childhood friends and college roommates, David Bingham and Butch Bockmier, joined up to start Park Place LTD in 1989, capitalizing on their love of cars and to build a business unlike any other on the west coast.

David is an avid vintage racer, campaigning his ex-Sterling Moss Lotus 23 sports racer. His dream garage is already full with a 993 Turbo S, an aluminum bodied 1964 Shelby Cobra (289), and the aforementioned Lotus vintage racer. He drives a Mercedes E63 AMG daily and currently has an Audi R8 in his rotating modern sports car slot next to Shari’s 911 C4S.

Other than cars, David is an avid boater and is heavily involved with many local charitable organizations like Children’s Hospital and the Le May museum as well as others. He is also a season ticket holder for the football team of his alma mater, the University of Washington Huskies.

Ryan Vanderwel

General Manager
Ryan came to Park Place after graduating from the University of Western Ontario as a Business Finance Major. He had never worked in the car business prior but was always passionate about automobiles, so he decided to give it a go thinking, “You will always be successful in life if you do something that you truly love.” Ryan has done most every job throughout the dealership, from washing cars to selling them, and now is at the helm as our General Manager.

Ryan truly believes that customers are the most important asset we have and says, “If we provide our customers with the highest level of service for all their automotive needs, they will be our customers for life.” And this belief manifests itself in every employee of our dealership.

Ryan currently resides in Issaquah, WA with his wife and son, and in his free time, you will find him at a local autocross or taking part in Track Days. “I always wanted to be a race car driver, so this is my way of living my own dream – unfortunately funded by my own pocketbook!“ In the winter months he can be found frequenting one of the local ski resorts in his M3.

David Bruski

Sales Associate
David came to Park Place LTD in 1991, making him the longest tenured employee in Park Place's history.

When pressed, David admits, "I have to say the Cooper S is one of my favorites to drive everyday, but I miss my 911 the most."

According to David, Park Place is the dream place for any car enthusiast. "Very few Dealerships have the variety, depth, and quality of vehicles we have. Even fewer have the quality of people we have, and none have the fun we have!" Much of Bruski's business comes from return customers and referrals. His vast wealth of knowledge and integrity will make your purchase decision uncomplicated and enjoyable. "Just ask for Bruski."

He has owned a string of Porsches and currently drives a Mercedes-Benz 500E, which was a limited production, V8 powered, Porsche-built precursor to all the high performance luxury supersedans that you see offered today with AMG, M, and S badges on the trunks.

He displays a wealth of knowledge about the products he sells, and people who buy cars from Rene rave about the in-depth answers to their questions. They also enjoy first class service and many of them come back again and again.

Rene thinks that Park Place is a Mecca for “car guys/gals” of all types – and not just because of the cars, but also the people. “Not only is our staff full of gear-heads, but our customers are often the same way! So many of them come back again and again that they become part of the Park Place family along with the rest of us.”

Vitaliy Petrov

Consignment Agent

He is a marketing major at Northwest University who has had done everything in the industry from being a parts guy at Shucks to running a performance shop. job is right up his alley because he loves finding old rare cars and restoring them. He is in the process of restoring a 1978 Mazda Cosmo (RX-5) which he found sleeping in a barn for 25 years in Graham. It only took him one evening to get that old Rotary fired up again and after smoking out the whole neighborhood with exhaust fumes, that car became his daily driver for a few months. His current goal is to build a Hill Climb car that he can compete with in some of the local events. He is partially there with his 1988 Mazda 323 GTX, an AWD, Turbo homologation special rally car, but this goal will still take some time.
