I have been in the automotive industry for a very extensive amount of time. I was born in Somerville, NJ and as I was growing up my father was always buying, fixing and selling cars so I was around it all my life. At the age of 13 I owned 5 cars of my own from money that I had made mowing lawns in the neighborhood. At that time you could buy an old car for $50. I would buy them, clean them up and work on them a little to try and sell them and make a little money. I was always around cars, buying, selling and I worked, when I was younger, at my friends Lincoln Mercury dealership cleaning and detailing cars. In 1980 I moved to Palm Beach County, Florida and at that time I got into the retail end of the automobile business. I started selling cars and went on to manage at some of the largest dealerships in the country. For over 20 years I worked, lived and raised my family in Palm Beach County. I have tried a lot of different occupations over the years. In the past I have owned a real-estate company, I have owned a restaurant, and a couple of sporting goods stores but always came back to the car business. I have had the pleasure of working with many great and knowledgeable people in my almost 40 years in the car business. In 2000 I moved to the Carolinas to raise my kids in a more family friendly environment and continued to work in the car business. My children have all settled within about an hour of Greenville, SC. I have always liked Greenville and with the tremendous growth and industry in this area I chose here to fulfill my dream. I decided some time ago to get back to my true love and passion, which is buying and selling classic cars, muscle cars and dealing with something just a little different than the average used car dealer. That is where Dream Cars of the Carolinas evolved from. I have always wanted to offer something interesting and fun to everyone. Please give me a call or stop by and say hello to let me help you realize your dream car.
