A new year, a new us!

I started Kartel in April 2017, and I had huge ambitions. I just didn't know in which direction we'd end up going.

I spent way too much up front, going to major events, not selling a thing, and I loved it so much that I simply never gave up.

Here we are,…

Looking for a good home for a low mileage Porsche 911

"Christina, my wife of 33 years, and Gateway Classic Cars have made my lifelong dream come true,” says Dean Wasson, a veteran of the Vietnam War and a resident of Peachtree Corners, Georgia. For many years, Dean longed for a 1939 4-door Oldsmobile, so that he could carry extra passengers. (Most street rodders prefer a 2-door,” he says.)
