Our Consignment Sales Program might be just the ticket!  Let us put our marketing muscle to work for you.  With our reputation, experience and contacts, we can likely reach a much larger audience than you can on your own.

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A CLASSIC CAR TO CALL YOUR OWN?

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A CLASSIC CAR TO CALL YOUR OWN?

Our Showroom and various garages are full of quality, classic cars and even a few motorcycles for sale.  We may even have a boat or two.

Click the button at left, or the CARS FOR SALE link at the top of this page to view our inventory.

Also, keep in mind that we are always actively buying special interest cars and Corvettes for our inventory.  If you have one for sale that might interest us, give us a call today.  You might be able to turn that car into cold, hard cash!

We are classic car enthusiasts first.  This dictates our level of commitment to doing the right thing.  Profit is good, but it comes in second to preparing a quality car that an owner can rely upon, be proud of, and enjoy for many years to come.  This is our goal.

 

We will be working on all brands and models of classic cars from vintage to late model, and classic motorcycles as well as the occasional vintage farm tractor.  We like anything with an internal combustion engine.  Let us know if you have a project that we can help with!

 

Hook up with us on Twitter and Facebook to stay current on SGC news and events.  If you have any questions, call us at (217) 342-2406, use the Contact page, or stop by the shop.

Lori Worman

Marketing Manager

 

Lori’s passion for the Corvette was first ignited when she began her career in the automotive aftermarket in 1987.  Throughout the years, she has had the great privilege of meeting many of the legends of the American classic sportscar.  Two of her most memorable meetings were with the first Corvette chief engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov and designer Larry Shinoda.  She has a passion for all things related to cars – engineers, designers, owners, businesses – and will not hesitate to share that enthusiasm.

Michael Schultheis

CEO/Owner

 

SGC has been a vision and a dream in the making for over 20 years.  I have been a lifelong enthusiast of muscle cars, trucks, motorcycles, and really any interesting car, especially Corvettes.  My dream and vision turned reality by creating a shop dedicated in providing the best equipment and service to restore, modify, and maintain your classic of yesterday or today.  The dealership side is available to those who need help buying their dream.  Let us help you DRIVE YOUR DREAM!!!

The common denominator for all SGC Team members?  Well, that would have to be an overwhelming passion for anything and everything automotive.  One might call it an obsession, although the wives might use a stronger word.  Put our obsession to work in your favor, call today and let us help you with YOUR obsession.  We're all very sick people, and we must stick together.

"One of my earliest memories is sitting Indian style on my fathers lap with

my knees on the gas tank of his Harley cruising down a country road. I could

barely see as my eyes watered from the wind, the sound of the engine louder

than anything I had ever heard, we were going really fast and I loved it. Since that moment I've been consumed with

understanding, building, rebuilding and refining just about anything with an

internal combustion engine."
