Owner

Sam Burns
Dealer

I have grown up in the car business and other than four years in the U.S air force, it is the only profession I have known. I graduated from the Citadel in 1981 and was married the same year. I moved to Gaffney in 1990 to operate BURNS CHEVROLET. Terri and I have four children and four grandchildren. The Lord has blessed us!
