One would think that the vintage muscle cars would be the most popular cars on the lot but things are changing. The camper and bus market is currently skyrocketing. Both Prinster and Trubowicz explained that their favorite car they’ve ever had on their lot is Volkswagen Superbugger which in essence is a Volkswagen Bug with a camper that sleeps 6 built directly on top. “We’ve had people call from all over to ask if we really have one on the lot because they are that rare,” Trubowicz said. “People also travel to stop by and look at it in person.”
When AP Vintage motors was opened back in 2018 a huge rehab was done to revamp the historical space, and in the future exciting things will be taking place on the lot. In order to bring the green movement to Statesville, the dealership will be building a new office space using metal storage containers imported from South Carolina. The new structure will include teak floors that are original to the storage containers. Based on the architectural drawings, the space is going to look pretty killer. “It’s been awesome to bring the space back to its former glory in a new way. I fell in love with the architecture of the building when I first laid eyes on it, and I can’t wait to restore the vibrancy of it all,” Prinster concluded.
