History of Vann York Auto Group

Vann York started his career at General Motors Acceptance Corporation (GMAC) before he joined his father-in-law at a small Chevrolet dealership in Pilot Mountain, NC in 1968. Five years later, Vann and his wife Ann bought Neill Pontiac on the corner of Montileu and Main Streets High Point, NC. This store was the beginning of the Vann York Auto Group.

In 1974, the Honda store on N. Main Street was added, and in 1985, the Toyota store on S. Main Street. The Eastchester location of the Auto Mall was purchased in 1986, soon to become the hub of the Vann York Auto Group.

Greg York joined the company in 1987 to oversee the Toyota franchise, eventually gaining responsibility of the Honda store and becoming President of Vann York Auto Group in 2000. He spearheaded the purchase of the Buick and GMC franchises across the street from the Auto Mall.

In 2005, High Point Nissan was purchased on S. Main Street and in 2008, Toyota moved to its current Eastchester location. Two years later, the Chevy and Cadillac franchises were added to Vann York GM, centralizing all of the General Motors’ brands in one location.
