When my wife and I married on July 25, 1998, our wedding party drove away in six Corvairs.

Buy a car. Make a friend. That’s really how it is at Shade’s Classic Cars. We are a car dealer that truly cares for every customer like a friend.

Shade's Classic Corner is a family owned business built upon honest, straight-forward Christian principles. We thoroughly inspect, repair, service, and clean each and every one of our vehicles. Our aggressive, no-haggle pricing is intended to create a relaxed and enjoyable purchasing process in which everyone is treated fairly and honestly.

Our business hours are Monday through Friday from 9:00am until 5:30pm and Saturdays by appointment.  I am happy to schedule appointments outside of our normal business hours when needed.

This room is affectionately called the "Stinger Room."  Pictured, Morgan Parizek and myself (Chris Shade) along with my 1966 Corsa Race Car, a very nice 1961 Rampside and lots of Corvair literature/pictures on the shelves surrounding the room.  --  1 Corinthians 10:31
