Gary Uftring has been a fixture to central Illinois car buyers for many years, including before the acquisition of his first dealership in Washington. Mr. Uftring began his automotive career on the wash rack at a small dealership in Minonk, Illinois. Armed with the determination to succeed and the desire to become a top salesman, he took advantage of opportunities as a “fill in” sales consultant when the store was short staffed. When he turned 18, the owner of the dealership agreed to let him sell cars full time. Because he was so young, Mr. Uftring focused on exceptional product knowledge and a passion for cars – two traits that serve him well to this day. Over the years, Mr. Uftring has developed an/or acquired multiple dealerships in central Illinois. However, his focus has always remained on great customer service and a commitment to giving back to the community.

I’m from Wabash, Indiana, but currently live in Bloomington. I have a lovely wife, Janet, and we have raised four children together. I also have two beautiful grandchildren. When I’m not selling, I love to golf and watch football and baseball. I am a huge Detroit Tigers, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and New York Jets fan! I, however, enjoy being with my family above all.
