Chicago Classic: Car Garages That Are So Much More

October 11th, 2016 by: relatedchicago

Lovers of classic cars and the city of Chicago already know that there is no pleasure quite like driving the length of the Loop in a 1959 Porsche 356A Convertible, playing music and taking in the sights of the city and the lake. But Chicago is also home to some of the most revered classic car dealerships and state-of the-art collectors’ garages in the country. While Related Realty can help you find your dream home, these garages can house your classics, and dealers like Evolve Motors and Gateway Classic Cars can help you start—or expand—your collection.

Collectors’ Car Garage | 2500 West Bradley Place

James Machinist, a partner in the first Collectors’ Car Garage in New York, knew that Chicago would be a perfect place to open another “country club” for classic cars and their owners when he discovered “all the ridiculously avid car collecting that goes on in Chicago,” as he told Chicago Real Estate Daily. Whether you are looking for a Chicago condo for sale downtown or some of the Related Realty Brokerage properties farther afield in the city, trips to this garage are quite easy.

The 66,000-square-foot space features climate control, 24-hour video surveillance, car concierge services, and a members’ clubhouse. More than simply a garage, this is a place to come to relax and meet other classic car aficionados—and browse the museum-quality collections. In fact, the garage sponsors events like the Aston Martin “Drive to Drive” and other road rallies and meet-ups where car collectors can show off their favorite Porsche or Jaguar. The garage not only carefully stores your car but helps you maintain it, with services that offer everything from a wash and wax, to paint correction and nano-coating technology, as well as inspections and test-drives for members.

Gateway Classic Cars | 8451 West 183rd Place

At Gateway Classic Cars of Chicago, you can find everything classic, from a cherry-red 1964 Corvette to a 1962 Jaguar XKE. You’ll want to keep your eye on the Gateway showroom for the best wheels to round out your collection.

Evolve Motors | 4030 North Rockwell Street

Pay a visit to Evolve Motors and you might find yourself driving away in a 1967 Mercedes-Benz SL Class 250, with the added assurance that Evolve has its own mechanical service facility and a body repair and restoration shop to fully service cars before you buy them. With Evolve helping to keep your classics in mint condition, you’ll be cruising the Chicago streets for years to come.
