Testimonials - Conte's Corvettes

Conte's Corvettes
Jerry M., NJ
Back in September 2015 I decided the 2015-16 academic year would be my last and I applied for retirement with the state. Having had a GTO and 442 in my younger days and currently owning a cherry 1976 Pontiac Gran Prix decided I wanted to treat myself to a classic corvette in retirement. I began looking for a very nice all original 1978 or 79 corvette. Over the past 18 months I searched 8 to 10 internet sites daily, drove to North Jersey, to the shore and even to Central Pennsylvania but found nothing I really wanted. This past Monday morning I drove by Conte’s Corvettes, which had been one of the web sites I was watching, and spied a black 1979 vette out front. I turned around and drove in and the rest is history.

Marty and his staff treated me like an old friend. We talked about the car, test drove it and reminisced about cars we have had over the years. To make a long story short I purchased the car and fell in love with it, driving it the entire day after picking it up that morning.

I would, without hesitation, recommend Conte’s Corvettes, Marty and their staff to anyone who is looking and ready to purchase a quality classic corvette.

Sincerely,

Jerry M., New Jersey

About two weeks ago I took delivery of a 1963 Corvette split window coupe (yeah, THAT one--the iconic model for Corvettes then and now). I bought it sight unseen from Marty at Conte's relying solely on the internet pictures and what he told me about the condition. I had the car shipped from Vineland down to Florida without too much drama---there is always a little when moving cars around the country.

While the car looked very good as it came out of the transporter, I know that there can be hidden issues behind that glossy paint so I have waited two weeks to write my impressions. In the interim, I've gone over the car inside and out, and had two mechanics do they thing as well. Now I can say with a high degree of assurance, the car is as good as they made them in 1963. While no car is ever "perfect", this car comes very close. I told Marty the best surprise is no surprise and that's what I got. The car was fairly represented and nothing was hidden or glossed over. If only all car purchases were as honest......

I've never met Marty but hope to if I can lure him to Florida this winter but Marty Pinder comes across as a real "car guy" not just so another person trying to make his sales quota. He was accessible, willing to spend time on the phone, and accurate in his assessment of this car. Given these qualities, I would buy another from him without an inspection. Never got to speak with Joe Conte himself but there was no need to---Marty was able to accomplish everything that I asked for without the old tired excuse of "Let me take it to the boss in the back and see what he will do."

To steal an advertising line from some TV ad, THIS is the way car buying SHOULD be ---no hassles, no surprises, just honest representations about the product.

My wife and I traded just our beloved ’92 red convertible at Conte’s Corvettes for a phenomenal ’99 pewter convertible. Just as in 2007 when we bought the ’92 from Joe Conte, this experience was such a pleasure. Marty and I had a few prior conversations about the pewter ’99 after my wife and I became interested in it. I learned all about the many upgrades in the C5 and in that particular ‘99 that turned out to be even more evident once we visited the showroom and test drove the ’99. We concluded the transaction that day and left the showroom in the comfort and ultimate performance of the ’99 with smiles from ear to ear all the way home for the 2 hour drive. A heartfelt thanks to Marty and the Conte’s team for another truly fantastic experience. My wife and I feel like we are one of the family at Conte’s.

Best regards,
Chuck & Jill, New Jersey

Marty,
Pat and I just wanted to thank you for the time you spent over the phone in making our deal,We have never bought a car without seeing it. But after living in Vineland and visiting your showroom we knew your cars were no-1.
Pat and I could not believe our eyes when the car came off the truck, it looked better than the new one we bought back in 1993 so our Ruby red 40th anv after spending 22 years with little use its ready to play, here in Fl the sun always shines so the top will be down and the wheels will turn a lot.
Once again thanks again for this show car that will see a new life.

Pat & Bob, Englewood Fl
Pete & Lisa, Delaware
I want to say a huge Thank you to you! The Friday I rode up there to look at your inventory you took well over an hour to show me all the cars and educate me on what I was looking at. There was no pressure at all. I walked out of there not knowing which one I was going to buy or when but I knew the car would come from Conte’s no matter what. The very next day here we are now discussing the car I fell in love with as soon as I saw it.
I wear my shirt and tell everyone where the car came from. I am so glad by chance I found your place on Facebook and got a chance to meet you. You are a super nice guy and I am going to drop in sometime to say Hi and bring my son to look at the cars.
Again Thank you for everything!

Hi Marty,

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting you again. Your showroom is a Corvette museum and I can't get enough. For those like myself who grew up with Corvette posters on our walls, finally buying my first Vette was a dream come true. It took a long time but it was well worth it. Thank you and Joe for making is such a fun experience.

Joe, Marty and Michelle,

I just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone at Conte's Corvettes for all your help in getting my 1971 LT1 ready for me and for getting it delivered to my door in show room condition.

I've owned many classic Corvettes in the past including a 1971 LT1-Ontario Orange Coupe. I loved that car and have looked for a replacement for many years. This LT1 is very similar with the exception of being a Convertible.

I have really enjoyed all the conversations we have had concerning things I wanted done to my car prior to delivery and for the excellent service department and for making this a great experience. I look forward to talking to you again and would not hesitate to buy another Corvette from Conte's.

Thank you,
Vaughn, Pennsylvania

After more than 30 years I decided to jump back into Corvette ownership.
I met Joe many years ago as this is my fourth Vet. I couldn't believe how little he has changed and that was great news... I can't add anymore than what is written on his brochure..
It is a tribute to him to say that he has been able to maintain his brand for 40 years.
Thanks again for everything.... I am enjoying the hell out of this one!!!!!

Joe & Tricia,

I just want to take the time to personally thank you not only for a pleasant buying experience, but also for the overall quality of my 1962 Corvette. As with any 50+ year old vehicle, there are issues to be worked through, but Joe has made this part extremely easy - backing up his reputation in the Corvette community as a person of integrity and a pleasure to do business with.

When I came across this car on line, there was an accompanying link asking about Conte's Corvettes. The National Corvette Forum came up with 2-3/4 pages of nothing but positive posts - right then, I knew I had nothing to worry about.

We are enjoying the car immensely - next step is to remove the hardtop and get ready for top down cruising. Thank you again for selling me the 'Vette of my dreams...The family loves it, especially the grand kids. Thank You again for a seamless pressure free transaction,

Rose & Bob

Joe,

Trisha and Joe,

Our second purchase from you in 8 months!!!!! When we purchased our very first corvette from you this spring, never in a million years did we think we would be upgrading to a newer model just 8 months later!!!

We brought our 2005 convertible in for an oil change in November and ended up upgrading to a 2010 yellow coupe .
Quite an expensive oil change .. But well worth it!
We LOVE our "mild to wild" corvette.

We had the same hassle free buying experience the second time around. It is an absolute pleasure dealing with such honest, knowledgeable, down to earth people.

Thank you both.

Hello Joe, Patricia and Jim, wanted to let you all know that I am enjoying being a Corvette owner once again, the car ran great going home (24 MPG). Will put in a new heater core this weekend and it will be good to go for many more miles. Hopefully the paperwork will arrive soon and it will be wearing Virginia tags. Thanks so much and it was nice to meet all of you, have a good Thanksgiving, best regards, Bill
Ray & Kathy, New Jersey
Hi Joe,

Kathy and I would like to thank you for the wonderful experience we had purchasing the 1960 Corvette from you.

It's rare that you meet someone of your caliber these days. After talking with you on our first visit, we knew we would purchase a car from you because we felt you were extremely honest and had many of the same principles we try to live by. We were so happy that it was the 1960 and thank you for giving us the opportunity to make the it all happen.

We can't thank you enough for everything and for making my dream come true in owning this classic. It was a great drive home from your shop and I can assure you I will take very good care of the car.

Thanks again,

Ray

Trish, and Conte family, I wish I could give you a big thank you hug !!!
The vette has arrived and is in my buddies shop garage waiting until I can finalize my plan to surprise my wife.

THE VET IS BEAUTIFUL !!!!!!!!!!
You guys are class, and did it right. The deliver truck was FIRST CLASS - what a NICE RIG !!! you get a A+ in my book.

FYI, the plan right now to surprise Michelle is looking like Sat May 25th. I will "plant" the vet in with valet guys at this high-end restaurant she loves sometime that afternoon. Then, my buddy who has has it in his garage will us out dinner. Mike and his wife will drive, we ride. During dinner I am going to have valet guy pull vet up in the "special / show-off" parking area and when we walk out, she WILL NOTICE Vet...and comment on it....I will talk it up for a while until I hand Michelle the keys :-)
This is going to be fun.

Cheers, Kim, TX

Joe,
I got the wheels and all of the extras. Please tell the original owner "Thanks". And of course a big thanks to you as well. This has been the best car buying experience I ever had.
Francis & Diane R., New Jersey
It's been my husband's dream for 50 years to one day own a Corvette. This year, with the help of Joe and his awesome staff, we were able to purchase our very first Corvette. (Why did we ever wait so long?)

Even now, three months later, when we open our garage door and see that beautiful, flawless 2005 silver Corvette convertible sitting there, we can hardly believe it belongs to us. (Everyone thinks it is a new Vette!)

We never thought we'd ever trust a used car dealer since we haven't had the best of luck with prior car purchases, but Joe is truly the exception. There was one minor issue with our Vette which we were made aware of, and as promised, it was repaired as soon as the part came in, at no cost to us. Joe is truly a man of his word!

Now that we have experienced the joy of owning a Corvette, we will definitely be visiting Joe again when we decide to "upgrade" to a newer model!!!! (Which may be sooner than later).

Thanks Joe for loving what you do, and taking such pride in your Corvettes.

Francis & Diane R., New Jersey

I wish to thank you for sending me parts and papers for the the Corvette I purchased at your store. Most other dealers would just toss these items.

I am very impressed with your service and would not hesitate to deal with you in the future.

Dear Joe,

Your company truly provided the most unique and professional experience I have ever had in purchasing a automobile.

I want to thank you and your wife for providing such a unique and pleasurable experience in the purchase of the 1978 Pace Car. As you know my son and I drove the car back to Dayton and had the most fun ride it was great. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones and God Bless bring you back to good health quickly. Thanks for everything, Wilson

Dear Joe,

As I indicated last week, I wanted to take a few moments to compliment you and your terrific staff for your recent assistance in purchasing my second vette from you in the last four years. My first purchase, a 1970 Vette, turned out to become a show car. After numerous car show trophies and little driving, I decided to have you sell it for me. Your efforts were great and within about one month you sold it. Four months later, I got the itch again, this time looking for more of a daily driver, I visited you once again and purchased a 96. Not only does this car run great, but it is in A-1 condition and could be another show car.
In my three different purchasing and selling experiences with you, what I appreciate most is not only the professionalism and knowledge you communicate, but also the complete lack of stress one experiences when purchasing an automobile from you. You make the transaction fun and educational at the same time.

At all the shows I have attended and folks who I bump into and talk about Corvettes, I always let them know where I purchased my cars. Not surprisingly, most know about Conte's Corvettes and speak well of their experiences as well.

In summing up my experiences, I will always recommend Conte's for "the place" to buy a great used Corvette.

If only all car buying experiences could be as pleasant as it is in dealing with you and your wonderful and courteous staff.

Hello Joe, Michelle, Tricia and all the good folks at Conte's Corvettes!

Mary and I just wanted to let you know how much we are loving the '82 Collector's Edition you sold us. The car is so much fun and in amazing condition. Whenever we take it out for a ride people wave, stare, honk and comment on how beautiful the car is. Mary has even dubbed it. "...the best car to tool around in!" The 82' sounds great and runs real smooth over Vermont's twisty back roads- cool breeze blowing through the T-tops. Every sunny day this '82 is going somewhere with one us- so we are happy to announce 1,000 miles driven since taking delivery on that cold night April 20th. Every journey has just been magical with this car. It will continue to see excellent care and pampering with us, here in the Green Mountains.

Thank you to everyone at Conte's for making the Corvette dream come true for us!

All the best,
J.C. and Mary, VT

Hi Joe,

I just wanted for you to know that the 1965 Corvette coupe was delivered to me by Intercity Lines this past Saturday. It was a beautiful day, so I took it for a short ride! The car runs and drives beautifully. Since I had only seen it in your showroom, I did not know what to expect in the daylight. The car is beautiful in the sunlight! When Intercity was unloading the car, there was a traffic jam forming and people were getting out of their cars taking pictures of it! I am very pleased with the car and with the way that you conduct business. It is a refreshing change from the norm. I have been around these cars for over 40 years and know what is out there in the market. I would highly recommend Conte's to anyone who asks where to go to buy a nice car. I have already given a recommendation to a few people who are looking for cars. I will keep in touch, and stop by when I am in the area. Thanks again for such an easy transaction and a nice car!

Joe,

I want to take this opportunity to thank you, Michelle, and the entire Conte’s organization for making the purchase of my 90’ Corvette a pleasurable, and hassle free experience.
I greatly appreciate the personalized service each and every time I called with a question, when I arrived to test drive the car, and in completing the transaction.
Joe has a great eye for Corvette’s, which is evident in the mechanical condition and great looks of my Vette. I sincerely appreciate you finding me the additional doc’s on the car, and making me that folder for the car which I hinted that I was going to create.

I am a customer for life, and will highly recommend Conte’s Corvettes to anyone in the market for a Vette.

Joe,

I wanted to Thank You for the 1999 torch red FRC Corvette I purchased from you back in January. I’ve had nothing but compliments on it since bringing it home. I also appreciate that you took care of the issue with the EMT tire.
I had done my research when deciding where to look when I was ready to purchase and I’m glad that I picked Conte’s Corvettes.
I joined the Allentown Area Corvette Club (150 members) and attended their Springfest Corvette Show this past weekend where there were over 150 Corvettes entered. I’m proud to say that I took home 2nd Place in the C5 Class in my 1st Vette show ever!!! I also wore the Conte’s T-shirt you gave with the car as advertisement and I had a number of guys ask about Conte’s and also gave your business card to a member.
I don’t know if I’ll ever part with the ’99 FRC but if I do, I’ll be back at Conte’s looking for another Corvette.

Thanks Again,
Tim

Dear Tricia and Joe,

We traveled to North Carolina twice to look over a car in which we were interested. That particular car, although very nice, was on the market for two years as we had learned, had very high mileage and I felt it was overpriced. Something led me to believe that maybe it did not sell for those reasons. Searching the net we found Conte's gave a call and after speaking to Tricia, from North Carolina, we headed home making an appointment to come down to Conte's. Little did we know, being new to the area, that you folks were in our backyard. Had we known of your company sooner you had that same style vette on your lot, but lower mileage and lower priced, which we missed! As we wanted a "special" vette we considered rare-you had just the one. Being retired and this being our first vette, the time you both took in assisting us and educating us was more then expected. No high pressure sales. No matter what our questions were, and there were many, you answered them all with assurance. Thanks so much in making our first vette purchase enjoyable. While not to be a daily driver, it will be a garage "queen", the few miles a month we plan to drive her is all we will expect. Again, thanks, your time was invaluable to us. There are not many businesses that go out of their way to make the customer comfortable.

Regards,
June and Steve

Joe,

Thank you so much for having the patience and the time to give me a lesson on driving the Corvette and making sure I was comfortable enough to drive it home. It is a wonderful car and I appreciate how well you treated me.

Joe:

Well, it has been 3 months since I purchased the '91 ZR1 from you and I just wanted to drop you a short note to thank you for all your help in purchasing this beautiful automobile. I am having a fantastic time with the ZR and am completely pleased and overwhelmed with the purchase of it. I will enjoy this car for a multitude of years. I, of course, have recommended you to many people and will continue to do so. Hopefully I will have another opportunity for purchase another vette in the future and if that opportunity does arise, I will be coming straight to you. Again thank you very much.

Dear Joe:

I just wanted to drop a note and let you know what a pleasure it was to do business with you and report that the blue coupe that I bought for my wife is all you said it would be and more. She is the envy of everyone and is thrilled with the handling and performance of the car. I was not hesitant to buy the car because I was comfortable with you personality, your representation, and most of all, your integrity. I recommend you to everyone I speak with and insist that if they are looking for a car, they contact you.

I am sure that we will do business in the future. Thanks for making my gift to my wife one of the best things I have been able to do for her. All the best to you, your family, and your business.

Sincerely, Rod R.

Gentlemen,

I just wanted to take a minute to thank all of you for the service you provided to the 1978 Corvette that I recently purchased from you. Realizing it is a 22 year old vehicle, I thought there would be some issues. On the problems that I did not expect, you stood behind the car and repaired the items at no charge to me in a professional way. It is not often today that a business stands behind its product after the fact, especially a used automobile.

If I am asked who I would go to, to purchase a used Corvette or service an existing one, you guys are top on the list. Not only did you make it a pleasant experience, you probably saved my marriage.

Thank you and best regards, Franks A.

Dear Joe:

I would like to thank you and would recommend your company to anyone who is looking for a good used Corvette. You were very professional, did not misrepresent the car and provided excellent service.

Thanks for your help, Gregg C. FL
James B., PA
Joe:

I would like to thank you for helping me decide which Corvette best suited my needs. After years of learning the ins and outs about Harley Davidson motorcycles, the thought of trying to learn all of this once again was intimidating. Your total honesty and genuine concern that your customers are satisfied with their purchase made me comfortable enough based on the car, not on whether or not I could trust the salesman!!

Your reputation as an honest and true Vette enthusiast is well known and reiterated by past and present customers... even the competition speaks highly of you! I applaud you for maintaining your dignity and character in a business that others have exploited the customers lack of knowledge!!

Yesterday was like a dream come true, I felt like a little boy on Christmas morning (who got everything he asked for)!!!

Thanks, James B., PA

Just wanted to let you know I love the black/black 94 coupe I purchased from you ---- great ride/looks great, and I got all good comments about it.
I'm 100% happier with the Corvette compared to the HD I just sold --- just wish I did it sooner. This is my new toy..part time/weekend ride...

Joe,
What a nice ride home. The Vette ran great, looks perfect, and will be taken care of with the same loyalty that you show your cars and customers. My wife and I were very pleased working with you, Tricia, and the entire staff at Conte’s Corvettes. Could not wait to get the car, and now can’t wait for nicer weather so we can get it out of the garage.

Thanks Joe! KM, New Jersey

I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for your assistance and purchase of my Corvette. Your professional approach to my unfortunate situation has aided me in beginning a positive step toward regaining a financial stability. Every member of your business was professional and courteous. I came to you by way of positive recommendations from several friends. I leave our transaction as someone who will continue the positive feedback and recommendations in favor of your company.

Good afternoon Joe,

I wanted to pass along my sincerest "Thank You" for making the purchase of my Corvette such a pleasurable experience. I received all the paperwork necessary and have successfully registered my car/ With the extended nice weather we have been experiencing I have had the opportunity to drive her around and she is absolutely perfect. Everything I expected and more now that I have spent time behind the wheel.

I have never had such a positive experience in purchasing a vehicle in my life. You made this extremely easy, and the quick responses to my numerous requests to satisfy the Rhode Island requirements was something I have never experienced.

You and your staff are truly the best. Thank you again Joe!!

RF, Rhode Island
