The Cerame Family has been serving St. Louis car buyers since 1966.

Our dealership's founder, Paul Cerame, began his career in 1966 selling and servicing British sports cars. He soon had the opportunity to purchase the dealership he managed and began his career as a dealer with brands like AMC, Jeep, DeLorean, Lincoln and Mercury.

After becoming one of the top-performing Lincoln and Mercury dealers, Paul purchased a Ford franchise in 1997, and passed the reigns on to his three sons: Bob, Tom, and the late Dick Cerame.

Paul's sons and current owners, Tom and Bob Cerame, along with their late brother Dick.

In 2011 they added Kia to their line-up. Today, Bob and Tom, along with a dedicated staff of employees, proudly continue the Cerame tradition and back it up with “Paul’s Pledge”:

- A fair and honest sales experience

- No games, tricks or gimmicks

- The highest trade allowance

- The lowest possible price

- Outstanding customer service before, during, and long after the sale
