Gallery Girls: GR Auto Gallery has had the pleasure of employing some fantastic ladies to promote our business in the state of Michigan, and have been instrumental in growing our consignment inventory on a yearly basis. Each Spring/Summer you can find them at almost every auto show, swap meet, cruise or concours in the state. They have continued to attract customers to our unique showroom and make the shows even more enjoyable. If you have interest in becoming a Gallery Girl, please inquire at 616-855-6600 or
