Gary Enck's Car Store

Gary Enck was in his 20s and working as a toolmaker when he learned that his late father had felt he should be selling cars. He had always loved automobiles and he thought, "If [his dad] said it, it must be so." Within six weeks he had a job at the local Chevrolet dealer, and inside six months he was the top salesperson. In the decades since, Enck has owned multiple used car dealerships and GM and Chevy franchises, and was once the largest Corvette dealer in upstate New York. His current used car dealership in Oneonta prides itself on quality second-hand vehicles, with a focus on specialty and sports cars. "I sell wants, not needs," says the longtime Corvette lover. "I have a lot of fun with it. It's nice to see people get something that is a dream of theirs." Enck isn't a snob about what he sells. His number-one commitment is matching people with what they want. "If it has a motor and wheels, I'll probably sell it," Enck says. "But it has to be in great condition. I don't sell anything that's marginal."
