The Gay Family History - We are Proud to be part of this community since 1948!
Carl Gay and his wife, Marie, started selling cars more than 62 years ago in 1948. The dealership's first location was in Dickinson on Highway 3, which at that time was the major route between Houston and Galveston. Seventeen years later, after giving the much larger dealers in Houston a run for their money, Gay Family Auto relocated. In 1965 Gay Family Auto opened what was to be the first dealership on the Gulf Freeway. Along with the move came the much needed lot space that made Gay Family Auto one of the largest GM vehicle dealers in the nation.
Over the years many dealers have grown and expanded to multiple locations. Gay Buick & GMC has indeed grown, but Carl Gay felt that by expanding he would lose touch with the customer. That's why whenever you come to Gay Buick & GMC there is always someone from the Gay family to talk with you.
Carl Gay was the innovator of the one price selling concept. For the last half century, three hundred and sixty-five days a year, Gay Buick & GMC has put the low discount price on the windshield of every vehicle in stock.
Eighty percent of our business is repeat business and referred customers. Carl was quick to point out that the dedication and longevity of his employees and his wife, Marie, is the major factor in the half a century of his success in the automobile business.
General Motors' most prestigious award is the "Master" Dealer award. Gay Buick GMC is one of only five dealers in the nation to receive this award 25 years straight.
