Saw one of their cars on ebay. Called and talked to Alyssa Kamacho. Asked her how the process would go, etc. Felt comfortable to make the purchase. She put me in touch with a shipping company and everything went smooth. Had the car in SoCal the very next week and it's awesome! Probably the nicest old used car I have ever purchased. Everything works as it should! Super happy and Alyssa was communicative through the whole process. Would definitely purchase through Gateway again.
You guys are great! I have been looking quite a while for a car like this thta matched the one I had owned in the seventies. You have fulfilled my dreams. The transaction was smooth and professional. You exceeded my expectations. You described the car honestly and accurately. I appreciate the extra efforts you took to arrange prompt delivery.
I would like to take a moment of your collective time to share with the all of you an unbelievable experience that your Business Development Manager in Houston, Texas created from my 5 year old Grandson, Grayson Smith and myself on August 10 while visiting your place of business.
Earlier in the day, my wife, daughter and two other grandsons (2 and 3 weeks) headed out for breakfast to celebrate Grayson’s 5th birthday. As a warmup present he received from my wife, Lee and myself, subscriptions and samples to Streetrodder and Classic Truck magazines. With that he asked, “Pop can we go look at some hotrods somewhere today?” Coincidentally I had seen your cars and coffee event on the local street calendar, made a call to your Houston office and inquired about coming out for a look. We were welcomed to come out.
Upon our arrival, Mr. James Stanley greeted us and welcomed Grayson and myself to take our time and look around. James asked Grayson about his interest and likes in hotrods and Grayson responded that he was there to look for a birthday outing. Mr. Stanley took it upon himself to essentially construct a “birthday bag” for Grayson full of classic car magazines, keychains, suckers, flashlights and decals. Needless to say Grayson and I both were thrilled, so much so, we borrowed a space in the middle of your showroom, sat down and went through each piece together. I have to tell you the magazines are most likely his favorites. Over the next 2 hours or so, we moved quickly from one car to the next and often back to a car visited earlier. Grayson knows his cars and was spot on with most until we got to the Volkswagens, about which he commented “Pop what is that?”. Clearly he was having fun.
We wound down the visit with the conclusion that Grayson should have a Dodge Charger for college and red would be his color choice.
Please understand we are not new to this. Today Grayson tinkers with me on my 34 Ford and now on my 52 Chieftain. I decided when he was born that he should have the opportunity to understand a bygone era and participate in the same if so inclined.
The amount of attention bestowed on us by Mr. Stanley and the greetings from others in your Houston operation is beyond welcoming and impressive. You have a tremendous individual in Mr. Stanley as part of your organization and I wanted to make sure that I both thank him and you all are made aware of his personable efforts.
As mentioned, I have a couple of classics but my next purchase and/or sale consultation will be through your organization. Based on our recent experience with Gateway there would be no reason to do otherwise.
My sincerest thanks to Mr. Stanley for making Grayson’s 5th birthday a hit. We read those magazines together constantly and talk about them when visiting by phone.
Very best regards,
My wife and I just finished our purchase with Gateway Classic Cars in Houston. Duke was great to work with and the process was completely painless. We'd definitely recommend them.
Great people good prices
Duke and the team at the New Braunfels location are top notch professionals all the way. I would recommend Gateway to anyone looking to buy or sell a classic car.
The family had a blast there and enjoyed it with all the vehicles and food from the areas. We had 2 3 year olds and really loved it there. Thank you will be back in time lol maybe looking at a wedding venue. Great time and awesome vehicles.
Attended the most recent caffeine and chrome event, so many beautiful cars!
We had a great experience purchasing our car! Our sales agent, Masen, was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and very helpful. He made our purchase as easy as it could possibly have been. The car was ready to go and the paperwork in perfect order. We will definitely purchase from Gateway again!! A+ !!
Bought a 1968 pontiac firebird here. Happy with the service
If you like cars.... or are planning an event, place to go.
Thank you Craig, Adam, and Chelsea for making the purchasing of my 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby Tribute GT 350 Fastback an exciting experience. Setting up transport was easy as well. My wife says I acted like a 19 year old teenager when the car arrived last Saturday and by the end of the summer I will have lost my driver's license! No way. When I was 19, I was in the Army and before that year was out, I was in Vietnam. In a way, now, I will get some of that back.
After a very recent and terrible experience with a local dealership, the communication and customer service received from Johnny and Chase was refreshing and much appreciated! We had a couple snags (on our end) with the purchasing process which Johnny and Chase handled smoothly, switfty and calmly. They delivered on all their promises and we couldn't be happier with our purchase. THIS is how an auto dealership should function! I'd give more than 5 stars if possible! Thank you, again!-DFW
Went into Gateway classics in Houston and me and my family was greeted with warmth and kindness soon as we walked in, and they have a great car collection we were even invited to a car show they will be having this Saturday
Love this place, amazing cars.. most of the cars were already sold... So that's a plus for people interested in selling with this establishment,
Great company! Duke bent over backwards helping me to sell my beautiful import off. Got my asking price and kept me informed all the way along. Whether you are buying or selling, I can't recommend this company enough!
Duke and his team were excellent! So easy to work with, and they take care of everything if you want to buy or sell a classic car. I highly recommend then!!
Great selling experience. Experienced sales professionals who are very friendly and welcoming. They always have some amazing cars for sale.
I wanted to let you know the Galaxie is fantastic. There are no major disappointments, as the car was well represented with the pictures on your website and your descriptions. I also commend Chuck, a true professional. I could not believe how fast the car arrived!! I am truly your satisfied customer.
My late husband's 1958 Buick Roadmaster convertible was sold to a collector in Dallas, Texas. I could not have received the price in my area.
Beautiful new facility and great staff!
Great customer service and transport friendly thanks Matt!
Duke and Jeff were great to deal with and I imported out of Houston to Auckland New Zealand and they did everything I asked they helpd with car transport and everything I asked they looked into. I brought remotely and very happy. Duke and Jeff I would recommend and made it an enjoyable experience. Great stuff team.
They have the nicest most diversified collection of old cars antiques Muscle Cars Classics and Special Interest Vehicles the value of these cars is enjoying them their values can go up for a few.
I recently purchased a 1969 Corvette from Gateway Classic Cars and I am really pleased with my purchase. At the time I went to drive it home to Oklahoma and I had a small problem and after a call to Sal Akbani it was taken care of promptly. I would recommend to anyone I know who is looking to purchase a classic car to check out your choices first as you have a nice collection to choose from. I was treated fairly and am quite pleased with your prices and with the prompt way my problem was resolved.
Greg, Just a note to say thank you for the professionalism in the way you run the business and for the patience in dealing with overseas buyers. Things take a bit longer when there are more people involved than the seller and buyer I'm finding out, yourself and Brendan were courteous and polite and easy to deal with and I would definitely recommend you guys to anyone.
Got the car I dreamt about since I was a boy! Thanks to Dominic and staff. Very smooth proceeding.
We live on a farm and did not feel safe selling our 1955 Thunderbird by newspaper advertising. My husband and I are elderly and did not want strangers coming around our property. Gateway Classic Cars sold our car to an attorney in San Diego. We could not have done it on our own.
These guys are the best. Once I finally made the decision to sell my car, there was no question who I would trust that to. Thanks for a great job!
Sal, Thank you for the great service regarding my purchase of the '69 GTO. I recieved the title as you promised and it has been easily transferred to my name. I am looking forward to a fun winter project. Plans are in place to do a ground up restoration. Again,thanks a lot!
