MINOOKA – A new classic car business in Minooka gives the feeling of walking through time while providing the opportunity to purchase a dream car.

Aces Classic Cars, 502 Twin Rail Drive in Minooka, is an auto dealership offering to buy, sell and trade classic cars. Aces is owned by Matt Ewert and will officially open later this year. The hours will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

“Aces Classic Cars offers quality classic cars to first-time buyers fulfilling a dream and avid collectors globally,” Ewert said.

On Sept. 14, the Channahon Minooka Chamber held a ribbon-cutting with Mayor Ric Offerman, village and Chamber officials and family and friends of Ewert to celebrate the new business.

Ewert said the dealership looks forward to offering great customer service and building a great relationship with the community.

The dealership has been completely remodeled and offers a safe and secure environment for high-caliber vehicles. The building features vinyl art, with the lobby paying tribute to Minooka’s history. The showroom features a 1950s-style diner and garage vinyl art, giving a glimpse of the past as prospective buyers look at the classic cars. Aces also offers outside heated storage for vehicles.

“Aces is a unique business that will attract visitors from near and far to Minooka,” Chamber President and CEO Christina Van Yperen said. “It offers a memorable experience for the buyer, seller and visitor, and we’re thrilled to have them in Minooka.”

Aces plans to host car shows on its property, which features a large parking lot. The first car show was Sept. 17 and featured 80 vehicles. In 2023, the car shows are expected to be monthly and there will be additional weekly Friday Cruise Nights.
