Josh was great, he explained why the car was not that presentable and also explained a lot about corvettes I didn't know.

Buyers use caution when using this dealership. I reside 800 miles away from this dealership and was interested in purchasing this 1979 Jeep CJ5. After reading the dealers description I made contact via email. The dealership responded promptly. We communicated back and forth through several emails. I asked very detailed questions about the condition of the Jeep. The dealer responded and sent extra photos. One of my questions was about the body being all metal without fiberglass or bondo. I was told it was all metal and a beautiful restoration job. Other questions asked were if all parts were replaced for the restoration, drivetrain, shocks, struts, etc. I was told it was a complete restoration. I made arrangements for myself and a friend (who is a Jeep expert) to fly to Orlando, rent a car, and had tickets for Amtrack Auto train to return with the vehicle. Upon our arrival at the dealership we inspected the Jeep. The oil pan, transfer case, and anyplace there was a gasket was leaking and had fresh drip spots on the floor below the Jeep. The floor pans were fiberglass, and we found areas where bondo was used. There were small cracks in the paint job, the wiper blades did not work, some gauges did not work, paint was peeling off the floorboards inside. The chains on the tailgate were plastic. Who knows how long since this restoration actually occurred, we were not going to get an honest answer. We conveyed our displeasure with the vehicle, especially at that price. (There were other things also wrong with the Jeep). The salesman said he had a friend who had just restored and is selling a 1979 CJ7. It was brought to the dealership on a rollback and we looked it over. The restoration job was very good and the Jeep was all metal. This was a possibility until the test drive. Once again, the fuel gauge did not work, the wiper blades were missing and the motors did not work. The vehicle would not go into 4WD H, we stopped and put gas in it and as we left the gas station the Jeep stalled from vapor lock. The owner said he would sell for $24,000.00. The salesman had to call another employee to pick us up as the Jeep would not restart. Eventually the Jeep started and the salesman returned to the dealership. We were very unhappy about spending money, missing work, for two misrepresented Jeeps. I did make an offer of $20,000.00 for the CJ7 and a $15,000.00 offer for the CJ5. Both offers were rejected. We returned home without a vehicle. Upon checking a dealer review website several Gateway Classic Car dealerships had very bad reviews for misrepresented vehicles. Our salesman's name was mentioned frequently for selling bad cars.
