I tip my hat to Chris's extensive network of contacts in the classic and exotic automotive world. Without it I would probably not have been able to find the perfect buyer for my car. Chris handled the negotiation and transaction smoothly and professionally. I would definitely buy or sell another car with him again. His world class facility should also be on anyone's list of places to visit when in Arizona. Happy Motoring.

"I'm a European car collector who bought a Sunbeam Tiger and E-type Jaguar from Chris at The Stables in April of 2015. I did not inspect beforehand and relied purely on his description and eyes. His knowledge and sense of humour made me trust his judgment immediately. He assisted with shipping to Europe and when they arrived, they were exactly as represented...even a bit better. I just took the Sunbeam on a 2000 kilometer trip through Italy and it performed flawlessly. Whilst the Jaguar has been described as "within the top five renovations they have seen" by Germany's leading E-type renovator. I am delighted with both cars and would trust Chris to source another car for me if my wife would let me!"
"I don't have any experience with classic cars, but I purchased a used vehicle from Chris at The Stables in Sept 2017 and he made the process super easy and comfortable. Even though this is probably not his typical transaction he still handled it with care and attention. It was much appreciated, and we are thrilled with our purchase. Thanks Chris!"
I have been on a search flying around the country trying to find the perfect one off car and many times I would rely on FaceTime to preview the cars and the salesman’s opinion, before I would fly out to actually see the car to find out the car was not the right car as it relates to a truely quality build. When I contacted Chris, I remember him telling me that this car is the one and he was one hundred percent right. After arriving from a long flight from Connecticut, Chris met me at the shop at the time he said he would and he made the process of buying my dream car reality and could not have done a better job of representing the seller and buyer. Also, as mentioned in previous reviews, Mike was awesome at assisting Chris with the technical aspect of this one off car. I have not just bought a car, I met a really honest guy and friend and will most certainly be looking for my next special car with the help of Chris. Additionally, within 15 minutes of our purchase agreement he had already set up the shipment of the car, which arrived exactly the way it left Chris’s shop...( I bought dozens of cars in my lifetime and this by far was my best experience by a mile) Also, hats of to B.P from Canada who built an amazing quality car for me to enjoy... A PERFECT EXPERIENCE.
"I purchased an XKR coupe from Chris at The Stables and couldn't be more pleased. Not only is the car an excellent example of the now-discontinued model from Jaguar, but he made the entire purchase transaction as pleasant and effortless as possible. I've since referred a good friend from back east who just purchased a 911 from Chris sight unseen and couldn't be happier. Thanks Chris!"
I purchased a Jaguar XKR sight unseen from Chris at The Stables. It's a great car and the more I drive it the better I like it. When I picked up the car I put over 3,000 miles on it the following week driving to California and then home to Wisconsin. I had a great time and wouldn't hesitate buying another car from him or refering my friends.
"Chris - I've been a car guy all my life so have had a lot of different models and dealt with a great many companies. I have been exceptionally satisfied with the detailing work you have done on my cars but even more so with your attitude so when the time came to sell my wife's Mercedes E550 Coupe I felt very comfortable giving it to you. I fully expected that this would take a very long time but was very pleasantly surprised when you called in just three weeks to say you had sold it and at what I regard as a very fair price for both buyer and seller. Thank you."
"If you want to have people take care of your cars with the same love you have for yours...look no further. I was looking for a classic Porsche for a long time, when I found one for sale at the Stables in Scottsdale. Chris was so helpful and accommodating from the moment I entered his gorgeous facility all the way through the time I bought the classic car I had dreamed of for years. His staff even drove it down for a pre-purchase inspection. I was so impressed with his professionalism and knowledge of cars, that I decided to also store my car there when I was not using it. I could not be happier both with the purchase of a car from the Stables and storing a vehicle there. I am absolutely in love with the car I bought from Chris. This is how car sales should be. Storing my car there has been so easy...anytime I need the car they have it ready to go, waiting outside when I arrive. That, my friends, is service. The Stables is the best in the business and this is why."
Hi Chris, “I wanted to drop you a line after I returned to Portland to let you know how wonderful the car is and the overall experience dealing with you. I will admit I wasn't sure this car was all it was until I talked to you. Not only did I connect with you on so many levels but you unknowingly answered a lot of questions I had about the car. I think just knowing you had done the same research I had to find this particular model put me even more at ease. Your knowledge, sense of humor and easiness made it all worthwhile. I thank you again and look forward to seeing you when I'm back down there. By the way, the drive though Nevada is horrible. Why would they put a straight road in a desert if you can't drive 150mph? See ya."
“I purchased a significant, 6-figure Ferrari from Chris at The Stables, sight unseen. He was easy to work with, represented the car accurately and went to great lengths to answer my many questions pertaining to its history and provenance. When I received the car, it was even better than represented. A real straight car guy I would do business with anytime."
"I reside in Scottsdale and recently had an opportunity to both store my Baby--a 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo at the Stables while it was being marketed by them for sale. I can not say enough about Chris Gennone's personal attention throughout the process! He and his staff did a terrific job of marketing the car while maintaining it in the pristine condition in which it was delivered to them. I believed it would be a very simple process as I had owned the car for about 20 years and was a very low mileage car. Truly I believed it would be sold immediately. It was not, and my anxiety showed. Chris calmed me repeatedly and ultimately the right buyer was found. He did the same thing with another vehicle I stored with him and this further proved that he is an expert at both the storage and sale of "Special" vehicles!!
THANKS AGAIN CHRIS!!"
"I purchased a 1966 Sunbeam Tiger from Chris and was very pleased with the service and transaction. I had been searching for just the right
Tiger for 3 years, attending auctions and scouring the internet. Through his connections and reputation Chris had a Tiger in The Stables
that had been meticulously maintained by a long term owner that would become mine. I networked throughout the local automotive community
and had received only positive responses about The Stables and Chris in particular. I felt he represented the interests of his client well
in the transaction and balanced that with trying to structure a sale at a price point I felt was fair to all. I would certainly recommend
Chris whether it be buying or selling a vehicle, or storing a car in their world class facility."
"G'day Chris, I received the bill of sale that you sent in the mail and got the bike registered as well as a license plate. I just wanted to send you a note to say thank-you and that I really appreciate you going out of your way. If you happen to be talking to Mr. O, please thank him as well. The bike ran flawlessly as expected on the way back to Gig Harbor. The only issue I experienced was that my heated jacket quit working before I got to Redding, CA which made for a rather cool ride home.
