Gary Hankinson - Owner / Operator PA and FL

724-471-2975 -

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Gary Hankinson, aka "Hankster." I am the owner / operator of a Hot Rod and Classic Car dealership based in western Pennsylvania called Hanksters Hot Rods LLC. I've been building, restoring and selling Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, and Classic Cars for over 27 years. In 2015 I had an opportunity to open up a second location in Florida, So I partnered with a longtime friend Kevin Sergent, and together we opened a new Hanksters Hot Rods Classic Car Dealership in Daytona Beach, Florida, where we have over 75 cars on display and for sale at all times. I spend time at both locations and help run the day to day operations for both dealerships. I also travel all over the United States purchasing Classic Cars and shipping them back to our facilities. From there, we then recondition, market, and sell them all over the world.

Kevin Sergent - Owner / Operator - FL


I have over 35 years in the Automobile Industry, beginning my career in 1981, as a salesperson. From there I was promoted to Sales and Service Manager, then eventually to the General Manager in 1985. When I started, the dealership averaged around 70 vehicles per month, when I left; the dealership was averaging 630 per month. Under my management, the dealership received numerous Sales and Service awards and recognition. I left my management position in 1998 to open my own dealership, Tri Star Ford-Mercury, Inc. and Tri Star Chrysler, Inc., which has now grown to be the Tri Star Auto Group, currently with 6 locations and 8 major franchises. I've been around classic cars and muscle cars since I was a kid and my father took me along to the drag strip with him every weekend. From that point I was hooked and cars are in my blood. In 2015 I had an opportunity to team up with a long time friend Gary Hankinson and together we partnered and opened Hanksters Hot Rods in South Daytona Beach Florida. I also travel all over the United States purchasing Classic Cars and shipping them back to our facilities. From there, we then recondition, market, and sell them all over the world.

My name is John Oaks. I have been the business manager with the company since the beginning. I do all of the sales and purchasing documentation, including titling, registration, etc. whenever selling or purchasing a classic car. I am a Notary Public as well. I work closely with our customers to make sure the purchasing process goes smoothly. Once a vehicle has been purchased, I assist in locating a shipping company to transport the customer’s vehicle to them. After the vehicle has been purchased, I continue to work with the customer, as well as the shipping company, to make sure the vehicle they just purchased arrives to them in a safe and timely manner.
