Who we are:
Craig & Sharon Sampson ~ Owners
My wife and I started our dealership in 1997 selling used cars. In 2005, we decided to specialize in Corvettes. We started in a small shop and have grown our business to a showroom. Sports cars have always been a desire of mine since I was 14 years old. I grew up with Novas and Chevelles. My brothers and I always had the fastest cars in high school. In the 70’s, I had 1968 Z-28 Camaro that I would raced on the weekends.
My favorite part of our business is working with my children. They help with the daily operations and share my passion for Corvettes and classic cars. My daughter and my grandson will eventually take over which creates long term business for our customers.
Our Favorite Corvette: 1958 Corvette Convertible
