This classic car purchase was a first for me in so many ways; long distance, sight unseen, shipping, wiring thousands of dollars. I was so nervous that I even considered flying out to the dealership to see the car and pay in person. If you are concerned about all of these things too, please read my story. I found my lifelong dream car at Gateway online. It was honestly above my budget and so I was afraid to even call. But on a whim, I took a chance and called. I met salesman Masen and he immediately made me feel comfortable. He could tell I was nervous and how much I loved that car, and he went so above and beyond for me, I can't praise him enough. Masen did everything he could to make me feel comfortable and trust him. He was kind and non-judging when I made my offer and helped me to negotiate so that both I and the seller were happy and agreed on a fair price. Buying site unseen was scary. I had even looked on the BBB site and while there were a couple of concerns listed for Gateway nationwide, like any other company, they were all due to people who didn't understand what “as-is” means nor did they bother to get an inspection. There will always be someone who will complain! Even I knew that, so I pressed on. Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis already had tons of pictures and a video posted, but I felt I owed myself the due diligence to get an inspection. Masen had no issue with me getting it even though we’d already agreed on a price. I was buying that car no matter what, I just had to make sure there was no major problem or I wouldn't forgive myself if something was wrong. He didn't pressure me or rush me about anything. I had authorized the deposit and was concerned. He reassured me saying “we’re human”, J Even though it might not seem to make sense to trust a salesman's recommended inspector, I had confidence in Masen. He recommended Kevin, who has his own business locally, Hot Rod Custom Garage Inc. He was also fantastic. He provided hundreds of pictures and a fully documented, very detailed report. Plus, he cost half the price of the others online. He was totally unbiased and even provided estimates for my request for the small repairs needed for the used car. Even afterward, he said to reach out any time with questions and wished me to have fun with the car on several occasions. So nice!! He even recommended keeping a journal which I've started already. Once the inspection was complete, I was so terrified to wire over $50k and then have to wait for the car to ship and arrive. Again Masen, went above and beyond. He personally contacted his recommended shipper and asked him if he would give me a call to ease my concerns. That was so touching, and Ethan, from ASAP Transport Solutions, called me right away to talk through my concerns. He was outstanding too!! He arranged to have the car shipped the day after I paid and they worked around my schedule, delivering in two days from Illinois to Rhode Island!! Well worth the very nominal difference in price compared to others who were very aggressive and have a reputation of breaking promises and leaving folks to wait sometimes weeks to get their car! Even the drivers that worked for him were excellent, so kind and friendly. When they picked up the car, Masen even agreed to take pictures of the car getting loaded so I’d feel some comfortable!! I know I've written a book here, but I wanted to let anyone with the same concerns know that this method of purchase is now the way of the world. Having a informed young men who understand it all and who also CARE enough to help me through each phase of it made all the difference. I hope this helps you, feel better. You can trust Gateway Classics Cars of St. Louis. and be sure to ask for Masen! ! Thanks again Masen!! No concerns here but I know you're always there if I need anything. All three of you men are the best!! Thank you!!

I would like to thank Gateway Classic Cars and their team at the Indianapolis showroom for making the whole process of purchasing our 1932 Chevy Confederate Sedan fun and exciting. Since I was a little boy playing with my hot wheels, I always dreamed about having a hot rod of my very own. When my wife and I were first dating we had also talked about one day have a car that we could enjoy with our family and friends. I would often go on the Internet and search for the ideal classic car. I found a few cars that were interesting, but nothing really stood out as the perfect car for us. After years of looking, we finally found the perfect car at Gateway Classic Cars. The next morning I called Gateway and spoke with a sales rep by the name of Bobby Huber. Since my wife and I were new to the whole process, I had plenty of questions. Bobby gave me a back round on Gateway Classic Cars and answered all my questions. My conversation with Bobby made me feel confident that I was working with the right people. Bobby was able to finalize the sale with me and even helped me find a reputable shipping company to deliver my 1932 Chevy to my door. My wife and I couldn't wait to see the car so we drove over 700 miles to see the car and meet the team. When we arrived at the Indianapolis Showroom they were ready and waiting for us. My wife could not stop taking pictures. The selection of cars there made my wife and I feel like we were at a car show. In the past month, we purchased two brand new 2013 cars. My wife had made a comment to me that buying the 32 Chevy was easier than the other two cars. The process could not have gone smoother. Once again, I would like to thank Gateway Classic Cars for letting that little 8 year old boy so many years ago know that sometimes dreams do come true.
