"You go west on Walton and take a right on Baldwin. There's a blown lime green Pro-Street Challenger out front. Ya can't miss it, " said Southern's manager Dave Witt with a distinct Michigander inflection. We didn't miss it, or the 30 or so other space and time oddities on the lot. Southern Motors caters to all persuasions, even that group of "young guys who don't know which foot the clutch is on," according to owner Vern Roberts. "But they try, and I'm happy to see them here. They are dumbfound. They only know about Fox Mustangs." Most of Vern's stock hails from Tennessee, Texas, and other deep-south states and consists of '60s musclecars, pony cars, and what he calls rarity stuff, like the Pro Street Challenger and the '62 Plymouth Savoy 413 S/S clone. Aside from the gift of gab, his best sales tool is the Internet, which he says "has really come on strong for the last year or so," and more than 60 percent of sales are completed through it. Some cars wind up in California and as far away as Russia. "We try to keep stuff under $20,000 so people can ride without killing the bank." Our advice? Check ‘em out personally.

David, I want to thank you for your honesty, professionalism and friendship that you and Southern Motors provided to me during my recent purchase of a 1931 Ford Street rod. The car was equal or above my expectations based on your verbal evaluation. Should anyone have doubts about doing Internet business with David and Southern Motors then let this testimony be heard from a very satisfied customer. Thanks Dave and have a great holiday season.

Hey Dave, I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for your honesty in your dealings with me about the car. I had great reservations buying a vehicle sight unseen, over the internet but I'm glad my first experience was with a man of his word. The car is everything you said it would be. I couldn't be happier. Took it a cruise the first night I had it and won a trophy! Can't tell you how proud I was. This is exactly what I had hoped for and more. Love the looks it gets driving down the road.
Richard Saunders Norwalk,Conneticu
Well...it arrived! Right on time too! The car is beautiful! Just as we expected....Dad has not seen it yet...The car is great guys THANKS! I can't tell you how happy my father will be...I had a good time driving it around too...Im sure he'll love it Just wanted to thank you again... The GTX is AWESOME!

HEY GUYS I BOUGHT A 1969 DART SWINGER ( BLUE 340 CAR) BACK AROUND AUGUST OF 2002 WHEN I WAS LIVING IN MICHIGAN. SOMETIME LA TER SAW THE RO McGONEGAL ARTICLE IN HOT ROD AND SENT HIM AN EMAIL AND SOME PICTURES WHICH THEY PRINTED IN THEIR MAIL COLUMN. THESE WERE OF THE CAR RUNNING AT MILAN. 11.71 ET THREE DAYS AFTER I PICKED IT UP WITH OUT TOUCHING IT. I DROVE IT TO BAKERS CRUISE AND OTHER SHOWS MANY TIMES. WELL WE MOVED TO CALIFORNIA IN EARLY 2003 AND TOOK THE CAR WITH US. I STILL HAVE NOT TOUCHED IT THOUGH I HAVE ADDED A SET OF WHEELIE BARS BUT REALLY NOTHING ELSE. I HAVE NOT EVEN RESET THE VALVE LASH THOUGH I PROBABLY SHOULD. THE CAR IS A REGULAR AT MOPAR AND OTHER CAR SHOWS IN THE RIVERSIDE CA AREA. ALSO MANY TRIPS TO THE CALIFORNIA DRAGWAY FOR THE SATURDAY NIGHT STREET LEGAL RACES. THE PICTURES ATTACHED ARE FROM THE PACIFIC STREET CAR ASSOCIATION FALL NATIONALS IN OCTOBER 2004. (NOTE: I HAVE STILL NOT TOUCHED THE DRIVE TRAIN SINCE I BOUGHT IT FROM YOU). I RAN A BEST OF 11.69 @ 113 THROUGH THE OPEN HEADERS ON 110 OCTANE. UNFORTUNATELY A BIG RED EYE GOT THE BETTER OF ME IN THE SECOND ROUND. STILL A GREAT TIME AND THE CAR RAN JUST FINE. I WAS JUST SAYING TO MY WIFE WHAT A GREAT PURCHASE THIS CAR HAD BEEN AND HOW MUCH FUN I AM HAVING WITH IT. I HAVE A COUPLE OTHER CARS THAT SEEM TO SIT IN THE GARAGE ALOT AS THIS ONE IS SO MUCH FUN. WELL WE ARE HEADING BACK TO MICHIGAN IN EARLY 2005 SO MAYBE I WILL BRING IT BY IN THE SUMMER JUST TO SHOW IT OFF. AGAIN THANKS FOR DOING SUCH A GOOD JOB OF SELECTING VEHICLES THAT ARE CLEAN, FUN AND DEPENDABLE. I MAKE IT A POINT TO CHECK YOUR WEB SITE ONCE A MONTH OR SO TO SEE WHAT YOU HAVE NEW ON THE LOT. ONE NEVER KNOWS WHEN A SPOT MAY OPEN IN THE GARAGE.
David; Just a quick note to let you know the MOD TOP, got here on aftenoon of Mother's Day. Saved me buying a gift for wife, HA HA. I appreciate your honesty in answering all the questions I had. I must admit, I was vey nervous about buying a car sight unseen. I wil have to agree with you, It's a real keeper. It seem's to be right a home with my three Daytona's.
HELLO DAVID, I AM ENJOYING THE GTO ,IVE HAD TO DO A FEW THINGS TO IT , BUT EVERY TIME I GO TO A CAR SHOW IT TURNS OUT TO BE THE FAVORITE CAR , NOT TOO MANY DRIVING A 67 GTO , I HAVE ALREADY BEEN OFFERED MORE THAN I PAID FOR IT!
Just thought you would smile to see the car you sold me and my daughter back in march of 04 has won the excellence award at the MIS Nationals car show back on Aug 6, We had done a lot of work to it over the last year but still is the basic car you sold us. IT has brought us much fun and great memories, we have the a goal to come back and buy a mustang convertable 64-66 so see you soon and thanks again for the great deal on a very nice 69.. John,Kathy & Tina Sussell. PS I bet the car has increased in value :). you guys are the best........
The Sussell FamilyJeromeMi
Purchasing a muscle car without driving it or even seeing it in person requires a great deal of trust and faith in the seller. The folks at Southern Motors more than fulfilled those requirements. It is nice to know that there are still people who value the customer and work hard to make the deal as painless as possible. The shipping was fast, even in the face of bad weather, and the Road Runner met all of my expectations. A big Thank You goes out to David, Ed and all the folks at Southern Motors. I look forward to doing business with you again.
Dave Staley LouisvilleKentucky
Good morning from Tucson! Congratulations on moving into your new facility. I wish you well and again thank you again for the help and assistance you provided me in buying my '68 GTO last year. Best of luck.
Dave Zaleski TucsonAz
I would like to applaud you on your professionalism and friendliness during the process. I have been looking for a car like this for over 5 years and during the time I have traveled to see many cars that were not as advertised. So, you can imagine how excited I was when I showed up at your shop and you had the 1966 Mustang fastback that I have been looking for and the car was exactly as your add described. It will be a treasured part of our family that will be well taken care of but also enjoyed on the open road.
Dave Vladic Fort WayneIn
Hey guys, thanks again for your help with the car. I love it. I got it down here to Florida now and other drivers keep getting in my way just to check out the car. I found an expert here who keeps raving about it too. Anyway, thanks again to Roy for his guidance.
Alan Roman SarasotaFloida
Hi David, How are you and business? I continue to monitor your sight for the cars coming and going. We are enjoying the Chevelle and have been building on what was already pretty good. We've named it on the plates, "MUSQLAR". Many compliments on it and it seems 66's are much rarer than 67's. You just don't see too many anywhere around here. The best is what someone said; "what's not to like, it's got a big block, 4-speed, and it's black" My sediment exactly. We will be putting it away in November in a heated warehouse we found. The summer really went too quick, of course, everything is much quicker in this car. We've dialed in the motor and it is making alot of horsepower. We've done alot to the suspention to plant it to the ground and next year disc brakes for the front a must. It's a bear to stop! Continued success. My son has had a few opportunities to drive it and can't get over what it is capable of.
Rich & JordanMundeleinIl
Hey Dave, We have the car and it's sitting in the garage. So far the car is great, little things here and there but I either knew about it or expected it. Sure was a little nervous conducting a deal like this long distance and over the internet, but I put alot of faith in what Phil has said about you, and your company. After what has transpired over the last 2 weeks I will be sending anyone I know thats looking for a car, your way. It has been a pleasure Dave, Thanks.
Hi Dave, I bought this 1969 Pro Street Chevelle in 2002. Me and my wife take it to alot of shows in the summer. I win every time we take it out. People really like it. I had to build a twenty foot trophy shelf in our basement. My wife got tired of them in the living room. As far as general maintnace the car has ran great. I had a guy this summer at a show wanted to buy it. Quite a bit more than I payed for it. I told him talk to my wife. She told him she would get rid of me first. I get the car ready for the shows, she does all the driving. You should see the looks she gets. The car has really become a family member. All my friends know me as Chevelle Dave. Thanks again for a life altering experince. It hasnt been the same since we owend it. People ask me where I got it I say, see Dave at Southern Motors were else! Thanks Chevelle Dave!
Hi David, Well, I have gone over my new car with a fine tooth comb and I must say it looks even better in person than it did your web site. I am a VERY satisfied customer. I have put about 150 miles on the odometer since Saturday, and this baby drives as good as she looks. My only problem is with all of the attention the car draws, it might distract me to the point I get in an accident! Thank you for helping me fulfill a dream.
Mark Scott CarmichaelCalifornia
To The Fine Folks at Southern Motors, Everyday people hear absolutely traumatic horror stories about on-line purchasing. As I was transferring the money into a bank account in Michigan my heart was pounding like a hammer, all I knew about the 34 Ford Coupe was an on-line picture and a guarantee from Dave and Leroy that the car was immaculate. On that Tuesday night as promised I saw the headlights from the delivery truck and what I saw on the back of the car trailer was the most unbelievable 34 Ford 5 Window that I have every seen in my life. Dave with all of the wonderful things that you said about the car it was an understatement of the pristine beauty of this vehicle. Southern Motors is proof that there are still honest and dependable people that stand true on their word. Thank you, for making our dream come true!!
Jessie & Eugene HubbsTennessee
So what do you do when you don't have $50-100K to spend on a perfect vintage car and don't want to spend $15K on something from the ocean of "tittled" nice cars that have been destroyed by wannabee hot rodders and take another 5 years and another $25 grand to make it right? You call David Witt.... As I put my 5th coat of Maguires #26 on my gorgeous black 71 Charger R/T, I realized what great VALUE came from my modest $30K purchase. Dave said it was a 7 on the 10 scale over the phone, but I disagree... It was an an 8.5 and soon to be a solid 9 with the efforts made by me to repair the minor issues with the car. What a great opportunity for someone like me who is not rich but handy, to be able to afford a super solid rare vintage car that will appreciate 10-13% every year, not to mention the great pleasure I have in owning a fine work of art that induces pleasure into everyone who set eyes on it. The car was delivered in a very professional manner by Ed and I drove it, after an effortless start, off the trailer and into my life. No smoke, chattering clutch or rattles - even the brakes were new and the front end tight. All I can say is "take the plunge" as I did after 20 years of longing for another Mopar after the unfortunate loss of my 69 Super Bee back in 83. Its nice to be pleasantly surprised for once...
David, Thanks for all the honest information i have bought hundreds of cars but not one without laying hands on it first. You made this transaction a lot smoother than I thought it could go. The car is great. I have had a model of this car since I was about 8 years old. Thanks I will recommend your store to everyone I know.
David just wanted to tell you guy's the car was entered in a car show yesterday and took first place as "everybody's favorite". My wife couldn't be happier Thanks again.
John & Laura StanleySt. HeightsMI
Hi David, It's been a long time since I was out to your place. I bought a car from Southern Motors way back in 1979 and shortly thereafter a friend of mine bought one as well. Him and I used to drive out to your old location every Saturday to see what was new in your inventory. We really enjoyed it because Southern always had the best selection of muscle cars in the area. We also drove out there when we weren't looking to buy just for the fun of it.
I wanted to thank you, John, and Greg for everything you did to make buying a muscle car so easy! You guys were very helpful especially considering I live out of town and the paperwork side of it can be a pain when someone doesn’t live there. I also wanted to thank you guys for getting my folks into the storage facility to take the pictures. That memento alone put a huge smile on their face so I greatly appreciate it! I and my family look forward to buying more classic cars from Southern Motors!
Guten Tag David, after a couple month of searching , we found your website and your company. Now we finally purchased a beautiful 1966 Chevelle SS from Southern Motors. By the way we are from Germany, our hometown is Ansbach. Ansbach is a sistercity to Bay City, Michigan. We bought our car without seeing it before. David Witt just send me pictures and told me how the car looks like and how the condition is. This company and the owners work respectable. You said before, that we will love our new car. Yes, you are right, we love it. If you have any people from germany who wants to buy a car, just give them our phonenumber. We will tell them from our good deal with David Witt an Southern Motors. Auf Wiedersehen und liebe Grüße aus Germany
Thomas KarlAnsbach Germany
Thanks a million. Funny Story— My wife gets embarrassed for all the looks and honks we get cruising around town. Not to mention we have been whistled at about 3 times already.
Hi David, You may remember me, I am the guy from Switzerland who bought from you in January the gorgeous and ridiculously fast silver metallic 68’ Plymouth GTX with the built 535 ci engine. Thomas Glanzmann from Switzerland, whom you know quite well from previous deals, managed all the import and shipping issues and the car arrived then finally in Switzerland after 3 month in perfect condition. Many thanks once again for everything, it’s just a great car! I recommend your name regularly as the GTX get noticed everywhere it goes.
Stephen Eckstein Switzerland

Dave and LeeRoy, I just wanted to say thanks for a great sales experience when I purchased my 1970 Dodge Challenger RT. The sale went quickly and smoothly from initial call to the car arriving at my doorstep, hundreds of miles away. The car was exactly how you presented it to me both verbally and through your pictures and video. You were honest and happily answered all my questions, which is a must when making a long distance purchase. Thanks again. God Bless, PS: Tell Vern thanks, from one officer to another, for establishing a great company that gives muscle car enthusiasts a venue for finding and purchasing their collector's cars without fear of hassle or dishonesty.
Dan and Amy BennettWashington State
Hi Dave, Just wanted to say Hi and thanks again for my 1975 H/O. It’s been 1 year since I had purchased the car from you and it was a big hit this past summer, the OLDS and myself have been in the newspaper numerous times showing how rare this car is in Canada, I tell everyone that it’s the only 1975 H/O in Canada! Thanks Again
I wanted to thank you guys again for your fantastic service and all the help you guys gave me transporting my car to Texas. Greg was right on in his description of the car. I would definitely buy another car from your company sight unseen. I love the videos you guys post on each car you have for sale. The detail and descriptions are all someone needs to feel comfortable about their purchasing decision. I sure I will be purchasing another car from you guys in the very near future.
Brett Nelson IrvingTX
Dave and Leroy, Wanted to let you know that Janie and I are very happy with the Black 72 Nova we purchased from Southern Motors this month and wanted to thank you both for going over and above to make sure the car met our satisfaction. It’s a real pleasure to find that sincerity now days.
Dave & Janie NicoWilliamstonMI
Dave, at Southern Motors you are the best. My wife and I love the '72 Nova-SS. It's fun to drive and I get amazing responses when I take it out for drives. Want to thank you for making the transaction easy and painless. The car lives up to everything in the video and how you described it. If your looking for a great muscle car make it a point to check out Southern Motors.
John and Maureen GargiuloEast MeadowNJ
Hi Dave, Hope Business is booming for you guys, I just want to say thanks to you and your staff. I know I was a little nervous buying a car sight un seen. The detail that you put in your letters and pictures to me describe the car in a very honest and professional matter. We are so pleased with the car, and will continue to add to its value. Driving the car is fun and watching everyone giving you the thumps up makes it that much more special. I just wanted to thank you and your staff for helping us with our dream car.
Ray & Nikki Rossi Scenery HillPA
Hi David, A special thanks to Southernmotors and your staff ...I'm writing from Italy...the Chevy is fantastic and has a great success in the show! thank you for your pofessionality!!
Frank Benecchi Italy
Hello David A few things. I have to say that buying a car with out seeing it was a little nerve wrecking but the car is everything you said it was and I love it with just a few more things to do to the car it will be perfect. Thanks again for being so detailed and honest in your video I will definitely recommend you to anyone who ask where I got the car
I purchased a 1967 Camaro from Southern Motors in November 2013. I was very impressed with the Southern Motors team; right from the gentleman who sold me the car (Leroy) to the Sales Manager (David Witt) who closed the deal. I believe this is an honest group of people that are selling vehicles at very fair prices. David was very receptive to follow-up calls and answered any questions I had. I would certainly purchase another car from Southern Motors in the future and I suspect they will indeed see me again.
We just received our '70 Dodge Dart Swinger and it is beyond beautiful. We can't believe how awesome it has been restored from top to bottom, front to back, everything about it, is absolutely perfect, to us!!! A special thank you to a father and son team, for their hard work and vision. We will definitely take good care of it. We would like to thank Southern Motors for their professionalism and expertise, thanks David and Leeroy, your the best. Me and the wife just can't wait for winter to be over so we can cruise in style and see heads turn. Thanks guys for one of the best time in our lives. We love our muscle car!!!
Andre and MichelleOntarioCanada
We could not be happier with the car. We got it unloaded this morning in the light of day and went for a drive. Both Velma and I are really happy with the car. We enjoyed working with you and your team at Southern Motors, thanks for a great experience. We are looking forward to driving the car in the spring when we have nice weather. Thanks again for everything you, Jay and Leroy did for us. I hope everyone at Southern Motors has a great Holiday season!!!
Raleigh & Velma BoreenIndiana
Dave I wanted to thank you and Southern Motors for being honest and helpfull with the purchase of the 66 Nova. The car was as you described, actually better. What a great piece. Now I understand why you have been in business for 30yrs. My wife likes this better then my 67 Chevelle. Keep up the great work.
Jerry CoglianeseLake ZurichIllinois
Hey Dave, Just wanted to thank you for introducing me to the world of Classic Muscle Cars. My wife and I love the 57 Chevy 210 with the eye catching Matador Red paint job. In fact, because almost everyone thinks it's orange we named it The "Matador". Also, I am not accustom to being stared at while driving, but I realize that driving that beautiful 57 Chevy brings back memories for many and they can't help but wave their, blown their horn, or strike a conversation at the traffic light. Southern Motors is absolutely the best dealer in classic muscle cars. Thank you for being a wonderful human being that cares about your customers, you truly have made my first classic car purchase a delightful success. Continued success as you and Southern Motors and joy and excitement to the lives of many.
Robert StanleyPompano BeachFL
Just bought a beautiful 1968 GTO sight unseen from Dave and Leroy at Southern Motors.This is my second car I have bought off these great guys. The first car I bought at Southern was a 1967 Pontiac Firebird, which was sight unseen except for the video and pictures on the website. I was very nervous about doing that but the way Dave handled everything on the phone and he took the time to answer all my questions with absolutely the utmost professionalism. When the car arrived it was everything and way way more! The same goes for the GTO. All and more! These gentlemen at southern motors are great guys, I can't say that enough and the same goes for their quality cars. Thanks Dave and Leroy and the rest of your crew. I will use Southern Motors as my One Stop Muscle Shop again and again in the future.
Chuck GiffordRoaring BrookPA
A huge thanks goes out to Leeroy and the team at Southern Motors! The minute we walked in the door it was like walking into an old friend's house. Proud to say the car came from southern Motors and the new friends we have.
Jay HoffmanGrand BlancMI
I took my son Santino to his first car cruise in our new 442 purchased at Southern Motors and we were awarded our first trophy for best in class muscle car division. Thanks again Rick
Dear Dave and Leeroy, Just wanted to thank you for the good experience I had buying the 32 Ford hi boy. The car arrived quickly and in great shape. Thank you for your infegrity and service. It's great to be able to buy a car essentially sight unseen and have it arrive at the doorstep in the condition that it was advertised to be. It's a great car!
Hello Southern Motors: I want to thank David and Jason for making the purchase of my dream car easy and painless. The entire purchase from start to car arrival only took 12 days total, and the car arrived as advertised with no negative surprises! Additionally, both David and Jason answered all my questions before the purchase and during the transaction (sometimes after and before hours), and they always maintained a friendly and helpful customer service approach. They are no longer just car dealers to me, but new friends who have my trust and future business!!! Thank you very much!
JD Wolfe CasperWY
Dave, I just had to let you know, you are doing an awesome job. I bought a car from Vern back in the 80's and then bought a 1964 Dodge Polara from you in 1994. You were just a kid then. I am now retired and enjoying the warm weather in South Carolina but am on your website everyday watching your videos. Vern would be so proud of you. I have close friends who are lucky enough to come in the dealership all the time and they have said you have really stepped up on the buying of cars and you can see it in the videos. I just wanted to thank you for making my mornings so enjoyable. I get up every day with a cup of coffee and look at all the new cars. They sure do go fast.
You're Friend Wesley P.
The guys at Southern Motors conducted themselves like true professionals. They delivered on every expectation and I couldn’t be happier with the 1971 Chevelle I purchased. I would definitely buy a classic vehicle from them again.
Hi, The '66 Chevelle arrived this past Wednesday, and we couldn't be happier with the car. Thanks to Southern Motors for a very positive on-line purchase experience, and a special thanks to Leroy, who went overboard to be helpful and provide answers to the MANY questions posed by my husband, and who was extremely patient with the numerous telephone calls made by my husband to check on the status of the car!! Thanks again for this experience. Leroy is a valuable asset to Southern Motors, and please convey our thanks and appreciation to him for his assistance.
Margo & Don InskeepBowieMD
the guys at southern motors got my truck delivered on father’s day could not have been a better day . everything that you guys said about the truck was true and more love it. Special thanks to Leroy looking forward to my next purchasing with southern motors.
Hi Dave, Just wanted to let you know I received the car earlier this week and I am very pleased. It's an excellent Mopar and I'm the envy of all the Mopar Heads in town. Thanks again to you and your people for the excellent buying experience and I would gladly recommend Southern Motors to anybody in the market for American Muscle. Take care, -JJ
David: I just want you to know how happy I am with the 1932 Ford Three window Coupe! I took it to our Tuesday night get together and it stopped the show. No one ever looks at my '57 Vette or Shelby GT500. Everyone loved the '32. None more than me! If I had a bigger garage I'd buy that lazar straight 1940 Ford from you
Nick Bessor Mays LandingNJ
Thank you to David and all the staff at Southern Motors with my purchase of a 1969 Camaro Z/28 this spring! The car was even better than pictures could describe and the video did a great job of illustrating the cars condition and features. I could not have purchased a car over 24 hours away sight unseen without the great support and followup calls they provided. They were straight forward to deal with, and the trucking company recommended Southern Motors from past transactions and ease of business. We have had more compliments on the car than I could imagine and won “Best in Show” at the first car show it was entered in I would recommend Southern Motors as a class dealer that is very knowledgeable about muscle cars and easy to do business with!
Hello David, hope you are well, wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the joy you / Southern Motors has brought to us with the purchase of our 1969 Chevelle SS. We refer to the car as our our beloved 1969 Chevelle SS. " I and my wife and daughters all love this car and for various reasons it also has provided a great deal of enjoyment we have taken it to 6 cruise nights and have won several awards from the Best Class to Koolest Kar. Anyway thank you again David for working with us, on the car it was great working with you and all the guys at Southern Motors - you guys are the best and what better place than the MOTORCITY to have purchased or 69 SS - as I have said before you have a customer for life.

I just recently bought my second car from Southern Motors. David and Leeroy found me a beautiful 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner matching numbers V code 440 six pack car. The pictures and video described the car just exactly as it is. Again wanted to thank David and Leeroy for finding such a nice car and selling it to me. This is the second roadrunner I have bought from them. Also wanted to thank Jason for delivering this car to me and a big thanks to all the kind folks at Southern Motors too. They carry quality muscle cars and very helpful and knowledgeable about their inventory. They are very honest and have a lot of integrity. Just a real pleasure doing business with this group of people at Southern Motors!!

My name is John Kirschner and I just purchased my new baby from the guys at Southern Motors; I found the car on the internet right after I started searching for a 1961 Chevrolet Impala Bubble Top; My intentions were to buy a car in 2015/2016, but when I say this particular car for sale at Southern Motors, I knew my plans might indeed change; I looked at all of the pictures of the car on the Southern Motors website, and checked out the video of the car on YouTube, for a solid week; I then picked up the phone and I contacted Leeroy, at Southern Motors; He initially told me that someone was thinking about buying the car, but he recommended that I contact Tommy Oldenborg at Collector Car Lending, in case the car became available for purchase; I spoke to Tommy and shortly after, we were able to put an deal together, once I found out that the car was available; I called Leeroy back and then put a deposit down, and he immediately held the car for me, so I could get all of my information together; Shortly after that, I signed my contract to purchase the car, and then the car was shipped to me via Reliable Carriers; During the time in between me buying the car and it being shipped to me, Bennie from Southern Motors installed a brand new vintage air conditioning system, in the car and got it ready for shipment; Once the truck backed the car off of the trailer, I knew instantaneously I did the right thing; The car is way more than what I expected, and I currently can’t wait to take the car out for my first drive; Everything that I wanted in an old collector car, I got with this one; I really want to thank David and Leeroy for all of their wonderful customer service; They are not just a bunch of salesmen; They are fans of the hobby, and I can tell they certainly care about taking care of their customers, and want to make sure that every deal goes smooth, and they make sure everyone walks away happy; I truly had that feeling from the time I picked the phone up, until I parked the car in my garage; I also want to thank Tommy, Carli and Francesca at Collector Car Lending; If you need financing for your vehicle, I highly recommend them; They are great people, who also take pride in taking care of their customers; I also want to thank Richard at Reliable Carriers; He’s a nice guy, and he also takes a lot of pride in regards to the transportation of your car; All of these individuals came highly recommended from David and Leeroy at Southern Motors, so I just wanted take some time again to say Thanks; I’ll see you guys in 2015 for the Woodward Dream Cruise!

Hello Southern Motors, I am here to tell you how happy I am with the beautiful 1972 Nova SS I bought from you sight un seen!! I am 71 years old and have never bought a car that I couldn't drive or see. I would do it again. If Any one out their has doubts, do not hesitate. You can buy with confidence from Southern Motors. Again, thank you for fulfilling my dreams. The car is everything you said it was.
My name is Jim Norris. I wanted to share my recent experience with any new potential buyers at Southern Motors in Clarkston, MI. I recently purchased a 1969 Camaro. The car was everything that Dave and Leroy said that it was. It was spectacular. The engine and transmission had just been done in a recent restoration with only 20 miles on them. When they were prepping out my car for delivery, they discovered it wasn't going into reverse properly. They took it to a transmission shop and had the transmission completely rebuilt, even though the transmission was new. This cost them around $800 but they said they wanted to make it right for me since I had purchased the car with a new transmission in it. With the car repaired, they then delivered it to me. I am extremely happy with the results, the way the deal was handled. They were very accomodating and did everything they said they would. I highly recommend anybody looking to purchase a muscle car or classic car to stop at Southern Motors first. They will take good care of you. Thanks again to Dave and Leroy so much for taking care of my transmission and me!
"My name is Herminio Rosales and I just purchased a 69 Dodge Dart GT from Southern Motors. I saw this car on their website and immediately knew I had to have it. When I contacted David at Southern Motors it was too late and someone else had put down a deposit for it in order to purchase it. With my luck they decided to purchase a different car and left this one for me. I was absolutely ecstatic. Working with David and Leeroy at Southern Motors has been a great pleasure. They were very helpful from beginning to the end. They have gone above and beyond in making sure all my questions were answered before and after the purchase. I really appreciate the effort and time they spent looking for this beautiful piece of history in these muscle cars. I will definitely be making future purchases with them. For all the enthusiastic people looking for classic cars, Southern Motors is the best place to go. I just got the car two days ago and I already have several people telling me what a beautiful car I have. Thank you for making my dream come true. I am happy and proud to own it. I live in sunny California so I will have plenty of time to cruise the streets in this beautiful weather."

Just got my 1970 Dodge Charger 500 from Southern Motors. Dave & Leroy were not lying when they said this car was all there. It is incredible!!! The pictures did not do it justice. They set me up with Bryan from Cuda shipping- excellent service. Couldn’t be happier with the whole experience.
Dear David and Leeroy Thank you so much for doing what you do. When I first met you guys I had traveled from Miami to Michigan in my eternal search for an amazing muscle car. After putting down a deposit (which is a very convenient thing to do), I traveled with my brother 1400 miles to check out an amazing 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS that I saw on your website. When we got there, I was really impressed with everything about your place of business and your inventory. Upon our arrival we were greeted by your friendly staff and right there I felt really confident that I would be taking a car home with me that day. Leeroy is just an amazing human being and was extremely helpful throughout our entire day there. During our tour of the shop my brother spotted a gorgeous 1970 Mustang Mach 1 that had not made it to the website yet and that was actually the car I bought. The process of buying this car was very easy and you were an absolute professional about it, I really appreciated your honesty. My Green Beast was delivered to my house in Miami a few days later and its 300 horses have been tearing up this town ever since. Everyone marvels at the fact that the car is in such great shape. I have stayed in touch with Southern Motors through your website and check out your videos frequently. I really appreciate the time that you dedicate to each and one of them to show the beauty of these pieces of history. It was through one of those videos that I found my next car. Just a few weeks ago I contacted Leeroy again in reference to a spectacular 1969 Chevy Chevelle and once more the experience was great. I could not travel to Michigan this time so I did everything by phone and email and I have to be completely honest with you, not once did I feel awkward or hesitant. I was confident that you guys would deliver a great car and you did NOT disappoint me on Sunday. My new Chevelle was delivered at 6:42 am (18 minutes ahead of schedule) on Sunday September 27th. I want to once again thank you guys for everything that you have done. Please let the guys at the shop know that I am very happy with the rally wheels on the Chevelle. Thanks for everything.

I purchased a 1969 Mustang Mach 1 from Southern Motors. I was out of state and was not able to see the car before purchase, so Leroy sent me many photos and a complete description of the car. When the car was delivered it was exactly as described and ran beautifully. Fantastic looking and driving car. I am very pleased with the service and responsiveness of Southern Motors.
Leroy / David You guys are great to do business with. I couldn't be happier with my Black 69 Nova SS 396 with the Red Stinger hood. It's an awesome car and gets looks where ever I take it. I appreciate the time and effort Leroy put in showing me different cars in my quest for that perfect car for me. Leroy helped me figure out exactly what I was looking for in a Muscle car as I test drove various cars I was interested in without any sales pressure. In the process I found out how quickly the good cars go to new owners, so when I saw this one show up on your website I raced over first thing the next morning to see it first hand and we did the deal. The car was exactly as described online and even better. It had new paint but hadn't been wet sanded and wheeled out, you arranged to have that done before I picked it up, and it looked even more fantastic. You guys were easy to work with and very professional, everyone working there is a car guy. Anyone looking for an American Muscle Car absolutely should contact Southern Motors they are helpful and honest and have great cars that are priced fairly.

I have just received my beautiful 1967 Impala!! From all the classic cars i bought through out the last 10 years and from car dealers, you guys are by far the best! It was the smoothest and easiest experience. I can't thank you enough! The Impala's amazing condition is better than I expected! I always wanted to keep one of my classic cars as a daily car that i drive every evening. Those modern cars are not fun anymore! Now when I am home after work, the Impala is my way of transport!! I can't imagine the fun I am going to have from now on, thanks to you guys!! I just wanted to send you this email as a thank you for your amazing and professional way of dealing with customers from around the world! Thank you so so so much! Regards, Saud
I want to tell you what a great experience I’ve had with Leeroy and everyone else at Southern Motors. The past 24 hours have been such a whirlwind but you made it comfortable. You have a VERY professional business and I can see why so many people come to you to buy cars. I would certainly recommend Southern Motors in the future. And who knows, I may get the itch in the future to buy another! Thanks you again for making this experience a most pleasant one.

I just wanted to send you an email to express my thanks and appreciation for all help and assistance you gave to me in my purchase of my 1970 Dodge Challenger from Southern Motors. When the transport people delivered the Challenger to my house and unloaded it, I found it to be everything that you said it would be. You were always truthful in all the information you communicated to about this Challenger. Everything you told me about it was accurate and you never mislead me on anything about this Challenger. I would recommend you and your company to my family and friends with the purchase of classic cars. You and Southern Motors acted professionally and made my purchase of this car from my out of state location very easy. I am very pleased and happy with my Challenger and I have received many compliments about the car from the public where ever I go in this car. When I returned from my overseas deployment in 1970, I bought one of the first 1970 Dodge challengers. I loved that R/T but had to turn it lose when I return to college after the service and I regretted it ever since. For a long time I have been wanting to get another First year production Challenger and with your help, that has been accomplished. Once again thank you all your honest help and making it possible for me to get once again to own a 1970 Dodge Challenger.
