In fact he still remembers the first car he ever sold, it was a 1962 Chevy Impala to Teresa Bicknell. By the early 1970's Gardner had become Beckwith's Truck Manager. In 1974 he decided it was time to prove to himself and his family that he could make it on his own. Selling used cars he started his own business at the little building next to Rosie's Restaurant. By 1979 he had outgrown the facility and moved down rt7 to the building across from A&W. While there he not only sold vehicles and heavy trucks he also started Middlebury Rent-all where he rented a wide variety of equipment. In 1983 G. Stone Motors took a whole new face, adding a new facility on Boardman Street and selling GMC, Ford, and Mercury Vehicles as well as a complete line of wreckers and car carriers. Now over 40 years later G. Stone Motors is a full line Ford dealer offering parts, sales, and service for everything from a compact car to a medium duty truck. Gardner prides himself on having a dedicated friendly staff that can fulfill every customers needs. As always, Gardner is dedicated not only to his customers but also to the Middlebury community, he supports as many local charities and events as possible. "Please remember to buy American and buy local, the job, the business, or the country you save may be your own, and its the right thing to do! Support your local community and they will support you!" -Gardner Stone
