St. Louis, MO, September 04, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Gateway Classic Cars is pleased to announce that July 2011 was the best July in its thirteen years in business.
In addition, the brand new store in Louisville, KY already has over forty cars available for purchase, exceeding company projections for consignments in the first month of business.
“This economy is not all bad news. This is a tough economic environment but that just means you have to be smart with your money, it doesn’t mean you have to deny yourself a dream car,” says CEO, Sal Akbani. “There really are some great deals to be made as people are trimming down their collections or looking to move into another classic car.” However, even the optimistic Akbani would caution an overzealous collector to do his homework and not sink $50,000 into a $25,000 car. “I’m emphasizing finding a good deal – it’s never smart to overspend because you won’t ever get that money back and your wife will never let you forget it!”
GCC has added several new staff members in both of its stores. Also, the company is actively scouting for a third location to open in late 2012. “Things look very promising right now. We are choosing to focus on the bright side and not how bad the television news tells us it is. They have to say something to stay on the air, but there are some great success stories out there and we are one of them!”
Gateway Classic Cars sells classic and collector vehicles and motorcycles on consignment. The St. Louis showroom is located at 5401 Collinsville Rd in Fairmont City, IL 62201. The Louisville showroom is located at 13576 Blue Lick Rd in Memphis, IN 47143.
