“This award is a direct result of your hard work throughout the year,” Zone Manager Char Brown said to Tom Durant, parts director Tom Cross and the Classic Chevrolet parts, service and sales teams. “Everyone from warehouse staff, inventory managers, counter staff, drivers and administrative staff had a hand in making this record volume of parts ordered.”

This year, Classic Chevrolet in Grapevine purchased over $72 million in GM parts, a staggering $27 million ahead of the next largest dealership purchaser. The award was accepted by Tom Durant, shown above with his team.
