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,
Great experience so far with all staff involved.
A great squad to work with - the relationship doesn’t end after the sale - Cody & team go above and beyond to take care of their customers. Glad i came across these guys!!!
great place to see iconic classics, great service, and lots of space for cars
Thanks to the Chicago team for a great car buying experience! Nic was super helpful with answering all my questions and made the buying process so easy! Angel was very pleasant and provided helpful resources after the sale! I drove away in my dream car!!!

Mr. Steve West went above and beyond the call of duty for me and my family. Due to health reasons and financial woes I had to sell my Chevelle and I was under time constraints. I realized this was a push him and Joshua Githens were very fair with me and Thankfully the car sold and I was able to pick up a check with the amount we agreed upon. I HIGHLY recommend Gateway in Grapevine for buying or selling your classic car. It totally takes the stress out of dealing with the unknowns! Thanks Gentlemen!!
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 for the wonderful experience at your gateway show room. Aaron was very professional. Your kindness stretched beyond the sale of the car.
Flawless service from Duke and team. We worked the deal over the phone, set an appointment to view the vehicle, and closed the deal quickly. I’ll be doing more business, here, in the future.
Great selling experience. Experienced sales professionals who are very friendly and welcoming. They always have some amazing cars for sale.
Nice event space with collectable cars and trucks to admire and but if you're interested.
Great place to buy a classic car.
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.
Thanks for selling our 2002 T Bird and in such a short time. Great pictures and listing on your website. Joe and the staff involved are are the best! Thanks much to all of you.
Stopped in with the family to finally check this place out. Was very impressed with the inventory and Chase was very knowledgeable and helpful. I’ll be back in soon!
I did fly out to St. Louis from Delaware and visited your showroom twice. I bought the red '63 Galaxie earlier this week. I was very pleased with your professional sales staff, especially Joe and Brad.
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.
Robert, I want to thank you again for all of the great service and professional attitude that you showed to my wife and myself. You are an asset to Gateway. Sales Manager, I want to tell you that Robert Owensby was a pleasure to work with. You have a very good salesman. Keep this young man as long as you can. He loves his work and it shows. Good luck to you in the future and Gateway Classic Cars.
We purchased our 1972 Mustang convertible from you last year. I must admit we were skeptical to purchase over the net. However, we did some investigation first and found all parties had nothing but good to say about your organization. Your reputation is solid in the industry. So we decided to give you a shot. The car was delivered right to our home and the car was everything you said and more. The pictures didn't do it justice. My wife and I spent this summer as well as last at all the cruise nights and our car has been the bell of the ball. Thank you for you honesty and solid business practice. We will be watching your website as we plan to purchase another classic soon and it will be through you. Thanks again for everything.
I recently purchased a 1995 Chevy Station Wagon (mild custom) from Gateway Classic Cars in Charlotte, NC. I found the car to be correctly represented and everything they said it to be. What impressed me even more than the initial sale was the willingness of your staff to help me after the sale. The entire staff was eager to go the extra mile! If success is based on willingness and helpfulness they should do a bang-up business in Charlotte!
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.
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.
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.
Their approach to selling cars is very good. They sold our 1999 Corvette in less than a month.
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!
I stopped in and was impressed. Brent was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I was extremely appreciative of the time he took with me. By the way the car is great!
...I'm having fun with this car. Thank you for the experience allowing me to come up and get it. Everyone who sees this car turns their heads. It's absolutely awesome...Every car has it's issues and that's just the way getting a classic 36 years old is. You were right and honest the whole time. A buyer has to weight the want vs. the output to decide and buy. I got what I wanted that was definitely not available anywhere in this area (El Paso Desert Southwest Area).
Beautiful classic cars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Tell them Neal Jr. sent you! ????????
Beautiful new facility and great staff!
