I was wondering if anyone knew anything about Gateway Classic Cars in Fairmont City, IL. http://www.gatewayclassiccars.com/
 
They are a distance from my house but always have a lot of nice Corvettes listed. I really don't want to take a 6 hour drive down there if they are not a decent place. So if anyone knows anything, I would really appreciate it
 
Thanks

Don't know anything about them.Confused  I do like the orange '69 Chromie.  It's not all stock, but it looks pretty clean. Big%20smile

They have been around awhile. You should at least contact them through the website or call them. They always have nice Vettes, although most of the Vettes I see on the site seem to be automatics. I think they can locate what you are looking for. Aaron19762008-08-09 09:49:41

Bought mine from them...

I had a positive experience but I knew what I was doing and looking for. Prices are a bit high (other dealers are much higher) but deals can be had.

We have a couple members local, maybe you can get one of them to take a look before you make the drive...

 I'll be in the area for Funfest and could take a look in September...

Actually I should be down at Funfest, so I guess I could take a look myself.

You MUST go to Funfest.
You will see every Vette ever made and I am sure you will enjoy meeting some C3VR members.
You might even see your dream Vette for sale.
Bring your checkbook.LOL
