Hey Damon, Just wanted you to know that the Vette made it great to its new Mississippi home. Averaged 32 MPG the entire trip running the a/c. This was even better than I expected. I really appreciate your team hooking me up with my dream vehicle. If I ever have an opportunity to send you more business I will definitely send it your way! I have bought many vehicles but I enjoyed buying this more than any other. I had to give everyone at home a ride when I got home. They loved the car and color! Thank you and please thank your team for me. I will stop in next time I’m in town! You have my e-mail address and phone number now. Let me know if you come up with the front cover! Thanks again!
Haven't visited the showroom yet.But talked to Duke,he answered all my questions.He informed me about upcoming events.Looking forward to visiting and I know y'all will give the other local classic car dealerships a run for their money. Time to play with the big boys.
I am a busy professional who does not have the time to sell cars. I use Gateway's service to sell my vehicles.
The whole team there was awesome, so effortless I almost thought this whole thing was fake! Put my 67’ mustang on consignment there and within 90 days they got me what I wanted! Super easy, and that was extremely beneficial since I own multiple small businesses. Thank y’all again!
Thanks guys! The car is beautiful. Delivery was great and the driver got the car here 2 days before it was supposed to be here. The process went smooth and great, wishing you a happy new year,lots of health and happiness.
I just had an outstanding experience with buying a car here. I had always wanted a Porsche 944 and I finally got one. It was delivered right to my driveway and was immaculate. I worked with Andy Bierwirth on this deal and he was very quick to respond and was very knowledgeable. I am thinking about buying a second Porsche here.
Their approach to selling cars is very good. They sold our 1999 Corvette in less than a month.
...it is nice doing business with someone that is willing to give you the answers to make a major investment. Your staff:charlie and donna were great. I am very satisfied with my purchase and the follow up your people give. The best to you and your co.
I just recently purchased a '23 T-Bucket from Gateway Classic Cars. I am someone who has never spent more than thirty dollars on-line and was extremely skeptical about such a major purchase. After reading letters like this one and further investigation i trusted my instincts. My car arrived today. It was more than i had expected and much better than the pictures. I spent the entire day showing it off to everyone i knew and some i met along the way. This experience was painless and enjoyable. Thanks to Sal, Charlie, and everyone else at Gateway Classic Cars. My dream for the perfect car has come true.
Sal, THANK YOU THANK YOU, I was floored and delighted when Donna left a voice mail Saturday saying to bring my title, that you had sold my Cutlass. You got me MORE than I expected to get. This is our second transaction and I rarely deal with anyone with which I am more satisfied, truly a professional operation. It is a pleasure to refer all my car nut friends to you. Thanks again.
Hands down a must see if you're anywhere close and love cars With a 99.9% For Sale inventory of classic and exotic cars from all decades and parts of the world and an ever-changing selection, there's truly something here for every car enthusiast. Make sure to look for all of their 18 locations across the country.
Highly recommend the Scottsdale Gateway Classics location to consign your vehicle. Tim and AL made me feel like my vehicle was the most important vehicle in their showroom.
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.
I want to take a moment and thank you, Charlie and your entire staff for our recent classic car purchase (1968 Ford Mustang). Everyone was wonderful to work with and always made us feel like their most important customer. This was the first time I have ever taken a chance and buy something this valuable sight unseen. I can't articulate the words, but there is just something about Charlie I trusted, and decided to take a chance. He didn't disappoint me and lived up to the instinct I had, the 1968 Mustang has been a great addition to the family. We entered it in a local car show and received a 2nd place trophy. With a little TLC and work I am sure that it can become a 1st place.
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,
I bought my Z from the Tampa showroom. I saw this car online and normally I'm pretty Leary about purchasing a vehicle online site unseen,but this time it was a great purchase from beginning to end. Jeff was great he made me confident and and insured the quality of the vehicle and he really went the extra mile to answer all my questions and get the deal done at a great price. He was very helpful and the car was GREAT!!! everything I expected and more!!! Definitely recommend to all looking to buy or sell a classic. I'm glad I stumbled across them.
I have been very satisfied for that car, Mercury Marquis. Last week we had a Hot Wheels Show here in Finland and we got the 1st prize in Classic Car serie. The car is GREAT!!!! The car is 100% original like Sal said! I dont used an appraiser or inspector because I had a lot of pictures about this car and that was enough for me. The service was great. Everything was like we were agreed. Now I'll wait for the next car from Gateway Classic Car. I want something special and Sal is going to find it? Yes, I can say that everything was better than welldone! In my opinion You can trust for Gateway Classic Car Company!!!
Stopped in and was very impressed. Brent was extremely knowledgeable!
These Guys are Awesome!... Always Welcoming
Cool rides! Son loves this place!
Awesome cars !
I just wanted to thank Gateway Classic Cars for your work on selling our 1977 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow.
I realized some of the benefits of putting it on consignment with Gateway when we first came to meet with you and saw your showroom and met the staff. However, not until after we consigned the automobile with you and not only did you help us in what it needed to make it more appealing to that limited market of who would be looking at buying an older Rolls, but you really were great in taking care of us through out the 'process' did I realize ALL of the benefits of having it in Gateway's hands.
With the economy what it is today, and the thought of trying to sell something like this on our own, well, I wouldn't want to think about what could have happened with people that are less than honorable looking to take advantage of others that maybe too trusting or just naive to what could happen in going thru the process. We didn't have to worry about if we could trust the person interested in buying it, especially if it would have limited us to the market right here in our area only.
And even then, I would have had to trust that they could drive an automobile that was right side drive without doing any damage during the 'interested' stage. But, then to think about if we had to trust someone thousands of miles away that would be offering to buy it and trying to make the arrangements on transporting it to them and hoping that their payment for the automobile was good.
Again, in today's world, unfortunately, there are less than scrupulous people that would have taken full advantage of us and in consigning the automobile with Gateway, we never had to worry about any of the obvious things that could possibly happen but those things alot of people may not realize could take place.
So, again, I want to thank you for taking not only the time and patience to work with us on selling what I termed 'the old girl'..but making it a process that was very trusting and enjoyable.
We know that in today's market and having a very specialized item, it was not going to be an easy or fast sale. However, I would recommend that anyone thinking about consigning their automobile instead of selling it on their own, contact Gateway Classic Cars.
Thanks Gateway and Staff! You all were fantastic!
Gateway Classics did a great job for me in selling my 71 Cutlass. Tim met with me and we agreed on a price and before you know I was getting a check for the agreed on price. They know their vehicles and the market and maximized my ROI with me having to go through any hassle. If you need to sell you classic car this is where to do it. Also their inventory is a blast to walk through and see what’s out there. Thanks again Tim and Gateway Classics Scottsdale
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.
Gateway Classic Cars is always a fun trip. They have really cool old muscle cars and trucks as well as some race cars.-STL
Very clean facility. All the cars were laid out nicely so it was easy to look at them all over. If you're looking for a classic car that's the place to find it.
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
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!!
Hey Brad, just wanted to pass along to you guys the car was all it said it was in the video. It ran great on the return trip to Alabama. Turned a few heads.
