Just wanted to thank you for all the work you put into getting me the 98. Car blew me away. I appreciate your patience with someone unaccustomed to buying site unseen. Your eyes and ears (and fantastic video) and honesty are much appreciated. Please share this with Hankster. I’ll be sending more business y ’all’s way for sure.
George H - 1969 Chevrolet Camaro
I took the car for a spin yesterday with the kids and girlfriend in downtown Wintergarden. Amazing time and the car is all I have wanted. Thank you for the work you put into getting a car to me, this one especially, and getting this deal done. I hope you crush 2021 with sales and good health. I am going to make sure to get some reviews out for you and your place.

The Bronco arrived yesterday and it's a beautiful truck. It drives great and it's a lot of fun. The man that Mary got to bring it down got it here very quickly and he was a really nice guy. The whole experience with you and Hanksters has been just great. Thank you for your hard work, I really appreciate you.

Danny - 1968 Chevrolet Camaro
Robert - 1967 Dodge Dart
My beautiful wife of 40 plus years has everything: a husband that loves her, jewelry, nice home, nice car, adoring children and grandchildren. What she didn't have was a classic Mopar convertible. Found it at Hanksters! A beautiful restored 1967 Dodge Dart convertible. Rich Tirak was incredibly responsive and helpful, and the car was delivered to us in Virginia without a hiccup. The photo is my wife with her Dart at our first car show and it was a hit! Got more attention than my 1970 Charger, and we look forward to more his and hers Mopar trips in the future. Can't say enough good things about Hanksters.
Jonathan - 1968 Chevrolet Camaro
I just bought my dream car ('68 Camaro) from the FL location and Rich Tirak was absolutely outstanding to work with. Personal, friendly, communicative, professional, knowledgeable, he had it all as he helped me from beginning to end. He worked after hours helping me, proving with his actions that he does go above and beyond for his customers. I couldn't recommend him or Hanksters enough, and can't wait to visit someday in person. Thanks to the whole team for such outstanding customer service.

Dave - 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS
Another happy customer, thank you for your business Dave!
Jacob H - 1971 Dodge Challenger
Overall I think you guys did a good job of representing the 71 Dodge Challenger. That is rare these days. Buying a car (unseen in person) is risky business with Classics.
I will do business again with Hanksters Hot Rods. Thx
Dan K - 1968 Chevrolet Camaro
Just wanted to say, high class top notch business you have... All employees know what's going on. The 68 camaro we purchased thursday was everything we expected.... Nice to see a business with everyone on the same page. Thanks hope to do business with you again.. Any big block camaros keep us in mind thanks.

Dave F - 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS
Bought a beautiful 1969 Camaro SS/350 from Hanksters. Great car and exactly what I was looking for. Friendly people to deal with and made things very easy. Had a minor problem at first, but quickly taken care of. Do your deal!!!! They have some real nice stuff.
Mark & Randa V - 1955 Chevrolet Nomad
We really enjoyed meeting and talking to Gary. He certainly has a passion for classic cars and the way the cars are presented on the web site is fabulous. Those pictures caught my eye and I just knew I we had to detour on our East Coast Family trip to see it.
Kevin S - 1965 Ford Mustang
Hey, I’ve been looking around for a good classic car over the past year. I’m
not quite ready yet to pull the trigger but after checking out 100’s of
classic car dealer websites and reviews, I know where I will be buying
mine!!! From you guys of course!! I don’t want to deal with a middle man on
these cars- you guys offer that and I’m sold on it!!
If I were to pull the trigger , I’d definitely want a 1965 Ford Mustang
fastback 350GT you guys have in white with blue stripes!! My first car was
a 1966 mustang! Thanks for reading!!

Hays Gottwald - 1968 Ford Bronco
Christine Kramlich - 1969 Chevrolet Camaro
Gary and John,
Where to start. First I want to thank you both for making it financially possible for me to get this amazing car. If not for your help, I would not be the proud and excited owner of my dream car. Now about the car, she exceeded all of my expectations! She is beautiful, well taken care of car, flawless! Every way that she was described was 1000% accurate. When I asked for additional photos and video, you guys delivered without hesitation! The whole process was easy and I have already recommended you to my boss who may be in the market for a Mustang.
Thank you both so much from the bottom of my heart, I will enjoy and love this car until God takes me from this earth!

Jeff Bollinger - 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible
Rich and Al, Thank you for all of the help and answering all of my questions regarding the Camaro. My wife, kids and I love the car and we couldn’t be happier!! I’d definitely recommend Hanksters to anyone looking for a muscle car!! Thank You!! Jeff Bollinger
John Rock - 1961 Chevrolet Biscayne
B. Wayne Robbins - 1969 Chevrolet Nova
Rich...thanks again for helping me get my dream car! I have been shopping for 5 years for a Nova that was like the one I had in high school and college. When I received the email from Hanksters showing this car, I knew it was it. You went beyond your responsibilities to get the deal done and get the car to Tennessee knowing I had a small window of time to be at home. As I build my collection of cars, I will continue to check the Hanksters Website and all emails I receive. Thanks again for all your help!!
Dennis Norris - 1969 Chevrolet Camaro

Victor - 1971 Dodge Challenger
Hi Mr. Tirak. I promised photos of the car. All of my friends are going crazy over my 1971 Dodge Challenger. Thank you for all your cooperation. From San Juan Puerto Rico.
Fredrik - 1967 Pontiac GTO
Hi Mr Gary!
My name is Fredrik and I am the lucky owner of a 1967 Pontiac GTO imported to Sweden by Håkan Larsson in Husum.
He bought the car via his friend Brady a few month´s ago at your dealership.
I just want to tell you that a dream has come true for me, owning a car like this is wonderful!
It was in really good shape when it arrived here in Sweden and Håkan has helped me improve it by making it super clean and shiny in the paint.
Best regards// Fredrik
Ken Miller - 1969 Pontiac Firebird
Just took delivery of my 1969 meticulously restored Pontiac Firebird 400. Many thanks to Gary and John Oaks for making everything a great experience, and for answering all of my questions and keeping my in the loop throughout the entire purchase process!
Shane H - 1972 Dodge Charger
Shoutout to Rich and his team down in Florida, I’ve been buying and
trading muscle cars for over 10 years . This was the first time I bought from
Hanksters it was the easiest professional transaction i ever had, from working
with Rich making it happen with quick and easy process to deliver my 72 Charger
in a closed carrier, also the knowledgeable Al knows all you need to know about
a classic car. Overall A+ very satisfied with my bad to the bone 1972 Mopar.

Mike Dancona - 1974 Plymouth 'Cuda
Thank you rich and al for all ur help in purchasing my cuda. I bought the car sight unseen,cause I'm up in pa, the car was in Florida, and because of my work schedule, I couldn't find the time to fly down it see and drive it. but after many, many videos and pictures rich sent and conversations with al on the performance of the cuda, I felt comfortable in buying the car without seeing it. It was delivered by a professional driver, I cant recall his name, in the condition that rich said it was. A beautiful car. Beautifully restored. So thank u hanksters hot rods and especially rich and al for your professionalism..I would definitely recommend your dealership to anyone who is looking for a beautiful classic or muscle car. Ps. Can u put a picture of my beautiful cuda with my comment? Thank u..Mike Dancona

S. Taylor - 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle
Hi Gary, Enjoying my car. I always look forward to see what you are bringing in. Happy Holidays to you and your family.
Mitchell A. Josephs - 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS
I had a great experience with Hanksters. I bought a 66 Chevelle true SS in Marina Blue with white interior. My first muscle car purchase. I bought it sight unseen with the attitude and the budget that I am buying a half century old car. I had my mechanic do a few things that I wanted. I am very pleased and highly recommend Hanksters!
Dave - 1966 Dodge Coronet
John; The car was delivered last night. OMG! It exceeds my expectations and then some! Really, just beautiful....and LOUD! I think I may have upset a few neighbors last night firing it up at 10:30 and taking it around the block. Kind of expected to have the cops at my house after that. I can't wait to get it to a show! No doubt this is a head turner! Thanks again to you and Gary. I feel I got a great deal on a great car. Dave
Dave - 1966 Dodge Coronet
Gary, John; I want to let you guys know I'm extremely pleased with the car - looks, performance, every aspect. While it is always as risk to buy something like this sight unseen, I felt very much at ease after my first conversation with Gary and the communication with John made the process very easy and hassle-free. The reputation of Hanksters really made it possible. Also, Keith, did a fantastic job delivering the car, contacting me in route and making sure it was safe while in his care. I wonder if he is an Auto Obstetrician........delivering beautiful babies to their parents! Anyway, thanks again for bringing one of my car dreams to reality! Take care and hope to see you guys down the road! Dave P.
Donna Bieber - 1967 Chevrolet Camaeo
I have been going to email you and let you know the 67 Camaro we got from you people... At the first show we went to in our class it took first place
Donna Bieber - 1967 Chevrolet Camereo
Here is a picture of her, at her second show...she is doing very well, 2 shows 2 very nice trophies
Eifel Evangelista - 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle
Mr. Hankinson/Mr. Oaks; The car is great and the whole family loves it (my youngest has already put a claim on it). Years ago when I joined the US Air Force, I had to give up my 69 Chevelle because of all the moves that came with military service. It was one my Dad and I restored, and have always thought of getting one once I settled down. When I stumbled into your website, there was an initial sense of apprehension and doubt, especially being on the West Coast; however, I felt at ease from the first conversation I had with Mr. Hankinson and Mr. Oaks who patiently answered all my questions. Thank you for your outstanding, efficient and professional service. You made the process smooth and helped me get my dream back and keep my Dad’s memories alive. You both are a class act. Thank you again for everything and for your constant support for the US Armed Forces. Best regards from our family to yours. Eifel
Bill Woodard - 1967 Dodge Coronet
Very happy with the car. Transport company was very professional. Will be contacting you in the future to purchase other vehicles. Al was so knowledgeable about the car and that the process was so easy.
Drew & Sharon Nelson - 1969 Chevrolet Camaro
HI, Andrew. Update: the car passed emissions with flying colors. I get tags on Monday. I’ve had at least five people give me the thumbs up sign or compliment the car. Even the mechanics loved working on the car. Thanks!
Tony - 1967 Chevy Camaro
I recently purchased a 1967 camaro from you. Just letting you know the car arrived in Adelaide South Australia today and I could not be happier with the car .Thanks for everything. Tony South Australia
Mark - 1969 Chevy Camaro
Just wanted to let you guys know that I got the car home in one piece after 18 hours of towing it home. Couldn't wait to unload the car, clean it and take her for a drive. After spending lots of time going over everything I come to realize the extra mile the the previous owners took in restoring the car. I want to really thank you and John for the professional and above average service you provided. Being 1200 miles away and being able to trust people today with that kind of purchase is rare. To the people I have talked to you Hanksters comes highly recommended. Thanks for everything. Your "Die Hard" friend from New Brunswick Canada Mark
Monique - 1968 Chevy Camaro
I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with the car. You and Gary have been fantastic and have provided us with such good service considering we are all the way over here in Australia and have been limited with what we could do in this whole process. We appreciate all your work and efforts with the sale (and painting!) of our 68 Camaro and will happily recommend Hanksters to all our family and friends over here - we already have friends interested in purchasing a Camaro after seeing pictures of ours! Thanks so much again! Monique Australia
Aaron Reynolds - 1968 Chevy Camro
The kids and I had a fun ride home and the wife can't wait to go cruising this spring. I've waited a long time to get this '68 and Hanksters made it a very good experience. Thank you Aaron Reynolds & Family Ohio
Jim Carroll - 1969 Chevy Camro
If you are looking for a classic collectible Camaro or Muscle Car, look no further. Hanksters is the place to go. They have great cars and great service. I recommend Hanksters to everyone I know. Jim Carroll South Carolina
Rich Guerrini - 1967 Chevy Camaro
Thanks Gary and john for a great muscle car buying experience. No doubt I will go back to Hanksters for my next purchase! Rich Guerrini Pennsylvania
Mark - 1969 Chevy Camaro
Owning a muscle car was something I always dreamed of as long as I can remember. One day while looking around the internet i stumbled on Hanksters and looked at their amazing inventory. One car on their site caught my eye... a 1969 Yenko tribute Camaro. I called Hanksters and spoke to Gary who could not have been more helpful over the phone. He answered every question I had and spent as much time as I needed to understand what to consider about these wonderful cars. Being about an hour from Pittsburgh I scheduled some time to go and see the showroom in Indiana, PA. I had no idea what I would be walking into...a 1st generation camaro owners dream. There were so many incredible cars in the showroom with one nicer than the next depending on what you personally like. Gary and I walked around each car that caught my eye and showed me all the strengths and weaknesses of each example. He gave me the education I needed to understand what I wanted the car to be for me. He explained to me that when I see the right car it will speak to me which on my next visit to his showroom I found a Hugger Orange SS 396 tribute car which I purchased. Upon delivery I noticed a very small crack in the windshield. Not wanting me to go without my new purchase, Gary ordered the new windshield and sent a flatbed to my home to pick up the car, replace the windshield and while he had the car make a couple other adjustments that he felt would make the car even better. After his work he delivered my Camaro back to me at my home. Quite incredible service and what a super cool car. The only problem with the car is the crowd that it gathers everywhere I go.
Rob Marchand - 1969 Chevy Camaro
To the guys at Hanksters, I finally have put away my new Camaro for the winter season, making time to write this Thank You. Ever since I was a little kid riding in my Fathers muscle cars of choice, I always wanted a 69' Camaro. Not too particular in what model of Camaro it was, as long as it was somewhat original and true to the badges that were on it. Thanks to the internet and your website that I stumbled upon, it was right in front of me. Right from the time I called you to see if the car had been sold or if it was still available, I felt comfortable. Before I drove to your showroom, I lined up a car carrier just in case. The people at Hansen Car Carriers spoke highly of your Company stating that they picked up there before. This was very positive. Everything about your business that I saw online, I saw first hand when I was done checking out my future car. It was very hard for me to pay for a vehicle and drive back to Canada, in hopes it would arrive like planned. Well, it did and I have never been happier. I have told all of my friends where I bought my Camaro and how great the experience was! Lucky for me, most of my friends are Mustang guys, ha ha! Thank you, Rob Marchand Midland, Ontario, Canada
Scott & Michelle George - 1969 Chevy Chevelle
The car arrived and Scott is very happy with it. Thank you for all of your assistance. We couldn't have done it without all your help. Also if you could please thank Gary for us we would appreciate it. Thanks so much for everthing. Scott and Michelle George Massachusetts
Alan Acre - 1968 Chevy Camaro
I love your camaros. Thanks for the car. Alan Acre Georgia
Ryan Burns - 1967 Chevy Camaro
Was not sure where to write this, but wanted to say how well my experience went at Hanksters, I have bought many cars in the past and by far this was the most no pressure outstanding experience I have had. The car was beautiful and has already turned more heads then all my others combined. I have never been as pleased with the quality of a used vehicle as I am with this one. Cheers, Ryan Burns Sgt USMC New Jersey
Ray Kowach - 1966 Chevy Chevelle
Gary, Just a quick thanks. It was worth the wait, family loves the car, I am taking a personal day tomorrow to finish up registration & everything. Keep sending your new additions, fun to see & my son wants an older camaro, just got his permit last week, look out! Thanks again, if I can help with anything please let me know, Ray Kowatch Ohio
Johnny C - 1932 Ford Streetrod
Gary, This Place is the bomb..I bought my dream car (32 Ford) from over a thousand miles away. We drove 12 hours and the car was exactly as they described it. Gary and the other guys at the shop are pro's at what they do. I would highly recommend them to everyone. In fact, we have them looking for a Nova now....Go see them...you will not be disappointed. Johnny C Augusta, Ga.
Johnny C - 1932 Ford Streetrod
Hey Gary, Went to my first show with the 32 ford....won a trophy for best interior ....in the top 3....sweet...everyone really liked the car Johnny crawley
Don Southard - 1969 Chevy Camaro
Gary Just wanted to drop you a quick note about my 1969 Camaro. I had some anxiety waiting a week for it to be delivered, but it was received safe & sound. The car is great! You made the long distance transaction simple & sweet. I took the car to a show on Saturday, after having it one week. They didn't have a muscle car category, so I took the trophy, first in Hot Rod. Now we have a problem. I looked at your website last night, and I see you have a nice Cortez Silver 68. I don't have a 68. Who is going to tell my wife? Thanks Again, the car is more than I expected at a great price. Don Southard Jr.
Robert Gonzalez - 1969 Chevy Camaro
Gary, please accept my sincerest appreciation for making my dream come true. The camaro has lived up to all my expectations. You have the right formula. Your approach to this market is healthy and works. Thank you again. I will spread the word. Robert Gonzalez San Antonio, TX
Paul - 1957 Chevy Bel Air
Hi Gary Just dropping you a line to let you know I am enjoying the 57 Chevy. I picked up the spare from your friend, thanks. I sent the previous owner a letter and he called me. We had a nice conversation about the cars history. Also he has the jack, original radio and photo of the resteration that he is going to give me. Won my first trophy in a cruise night monday. Everyone who sees it lovesthe car. I named her Charlet. Thanks again Paul
Robert Gonzalez - 1969 Chevy Camaro
Hey Gary. How are you? Just to refresh your memory because evidently you are selling a lot of cars, I bought the blue 69 pro touring camaro from you in Feb./2014. I am from San Antonio. I have been following your Internet channel. I see nice building up grades and now you are selling MOPAR. Congratulations on your success!! I have loved my car and am making upgrades, coil over shocks, sound system and 700R4 trans. next. Keep it going, we may do more business in the future with all those lovely cars I see you getting. So any congrats and much success. Thank you, Robert Gonzales
Sal - 1972 Chevy Nova
Hello everyone buying a Classic Car was never so easy at Hanksters. First off let me tell you the owner Gary is the best around literally was on the phone with me for over an hour answering all of my questions about the Nova. And the phone calls didn't stop there for the past month from me he has been in contact with me in regards to everything that has been added as well pictures with updates. Can't stress enough that he is one of a kind there aren't many people I know that take the time to still stay in contact after they made there sale. Also you got John he is great took care of all the paperwork and organized my vehicle being delivered which is coming 12/9/14. So if your on Hanksters website reading reviews look no further because your classic car is right here and Gary will definitely help you make the best choice for you. Gary and John thanks again you two are truly a class act. Thanks, Sal
