Country Classic Cars started as a weekend hobby for a Midwest farmer. He soon found his passion for classic cars and trucks turn into a growing business. The owner worked as a mechanic for several years before becoming a farmer. Not only did he have the knowledge but also the desire to take classic cars, fix them, and sell them to others that dreamed of owning a classic but did not have the time or expertise to make it happen. Once this idea caught on, Country Classic Cars realized that this passion had a potential to become a way of life. The next step was obvious; when a piece of land along Interstate 55, just off the path of Historic Route 66 became available, Country Classic Cars made the move by acquiring the land which has plenty of room for not only a large display of classic cars and trucks, but also a garage/service area, inside showroom, and a historic gift shop.
