Chad Winn - The Son/Co-Owner/General Manager

-

Chad has had a life-long passion for automobiles, starting before he could even drive. He began buying and selling cars at the age of 16, with his own personal car, and he's never looked back. He was able to use his acquired knowledge of the car business to help open Auto Class Direct in May 2010 with his father, Chip. He's an expert buyer for our company and standing at 6'4'' he's a hard guy to miss.
