ok... one question i get asked a lot is, "Why did you buy from Classic Chevy?"
now, all the time you hear stories about horrible dealers. i'm here to tell you a good one
lemme tell you, it was totally worth the trip
to Dallas for the excellent service we experienced at Classic and thru Eric Hall.
first of all, once we decided to order... all the local dealers i called about the Camaro were acting all snobby and were expecting a premium on the car. not to mention, they didn't seem to have all the info on the car. fugg that! i'm not a sucka and i am not one to be taken advantage of. i had never dealt with Classic Chevy, but since Eric was a member/sponsor on this board and he was the closest sponsor... i decided to contact him about ordering a Camaro. from that first contact, i knew he was the man.
Eric knew his stuff and he was quick with responses. from day 1, he treated me like i was his only customer, even though i know he has to have hundreds of people he deals with over a 30-day period alone. hell, they have 2,200 vehicles on their lot!!
the place is ENORMOUS! but i digress...
once we placed our order with Eric, he was always contacting us with updates on the status. he was always on top of all the latest info about the car... all the changes... constraints... pricing... etc. he would even email me or call on his days off (even after they got the baby!) now, that's dedication!
he even didn't mind us hanging out at his dealership all day friday waiting for our car to show up... heck, he even babysat our whippet while we went to go eat lunch.
when we arrived at Classic in hopes of taking delivery of our car on friday, he even phoned a contact he had at Arlington to see if he could get us into the railyard. it didn't pan out, but he definitely cashed in all the favors he could to try and get us in there. he had also saved us all the Camaro stuff he could... brochures, hero cards, printed sheets of tracking info on our car, he even had Fbodfather sign our order sheet that he printed on nice parchment paper. i love all this documentation and stuff cuz i will put it in a big car show binder i'm making for the car. i'm a nut for that stuff!!
when it was time to do the paperwork, the F&I guy (Rusty) was even cool. there were no "hidden fees" or bogus charges some dealers like to stick you with. it was all very straightforward, the numbers were all right, and we signed and drove away VERY HAPPY!
our GM stripes, the engine cover (both of those don't ship in the car, they ship separate), and the Camaro windshield banner won't be in until monday and Eric has promised to ship that out to us ASAP. but Eric didn't send us away empty handed... he hooked us up with an unveil day poster, some keychains, and some other goodies (details to come later).
anywho, hats off to Eric and Classic Chevy for a job well done!! we will definitely come back to you in the future. you guys definitely know how to treat your customers right.
Eric, enjoy that Shiner and let us know how you like the Abita Amber
