Would you buy a used car from this man? Thousands of City Auto buyers do

David Andrews, founder and owner of Memphis-based City Auto, is the new president of the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association.

His best-known customer would have to be Elvis Presley, since David Andrews got his start selling cars at family-owned lots in the shadow of Memphis landmark Graceland.

“Elvis came into my dad’s car lot and bought three Cadillacs. It was pretty cool,” said Andrews, founder of Tennessee-based City Auto.

“(Elvis) gave those Cadillacs away. He said, ‘Here’s your car, and here’s your car and here’s your car.’ He wouldn’t buy a Buick or an Oldsmobile. He wanted his friends, his buddies I guess he was giving them to, to drive Cadillacs. “

Nearly 45 years later, Andrews Motor Company is long gone, and Andrews is at the pinnacle of his career.
