Do you buy classic and collector cars?
Yes, we are always looking for quality cars to buy, sell, trade and consign. We
would be happy to assess your car for purchase or help you sell your car. We
can do an initial assessment of your car through photographs however, we will
have to see the car in person in order to give an accurate buy bid or assess
value for trade or consignment.
How does your consignment work?
You would need to bring your car in for a thorough assessment. After the
evaluation of your car we will ask you what your bottom line price is to sell
the car. Providing that your price is “market correct” we will accept the car
for consignment. Consignment pricing is dependent on the price of the vehicle.
The car will be marked up from your bottom line price. Your car will be
marketed at our facility, on the internet as well as print.

We are open Monday through Friday 8am to 6 pm and Saturday 8 am to 4 pm. We are
closed on Sunday. Store hours are Central Standard Time.

warranties, even on classics with some exceptions. We make every effort to have
the cars in good running order before offering them for sale.
How do I go about buying a car if I am out of state?
The best way for anyone to buy is to come and see the car in person. However, we
