When not busy hunting with his 3 boys, coaching his sons' club sports or spoiling their granddaughter, Chad is actively involved with all the duties that come with being a business owner. Managing sales, advertising and taking the pictures and videos you see on our website are just some of his responsibilities. Chad also takes pride in overseeing and finalizing all inventory purchases, and looking for the best deals out there, so he can pass those savings on to his customers. Aside from sales, purchases and promotions, Chad also closely manages the shop, production and quality. Chad began his love of the classics car when he was just 20 years old working side by side with his dad in the car industry. Chad's vast knowledge of the classics and the value they possess inspired him, just eight years later, to start his own business out of his home with his wife. The two worked diligently, side by side, to build his dream into what it is today, Coyote Classics. Throughout this journey, Chad has loved meeting new people and making new friends from across the globe. He enjoys learning of their interests & the stories behind their love of the classic car. Chad's enthusiasm and love of these cars is contagious, and you will quickly feel at ease knowing he works hard to connect you with your perfect dream investment.

Dalton Austin - Manager

Dalton developed his love for classic cars at a young age watching his parents, Chad and Lisa, as they started the business from their farm home in rural Iowa. Later Coyote Classics was moved to a commercial location in Greene. It was at that time when Dalton's love for these cars and his interest in the business really grew!  As a kid, eager to learn something new every day, Dalton could easily be found spending time in the shops, offering his help wherever possible. He loved being around the beautiful, classic inventory. Working alongside his parents and helping to grow the business has always been something Dalton has aspired to do. 


Today, Dalton has become a big part of Coyote Classics spearheading promotions and campaigns on our social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. He is also involved in shop management, and works closely with the sales team to help them get You behind the wheel, driving the car of Your dreams! In his free time, Dalton can be found behind a wheel too, racing down the track in Figure 8 Races across the state.

Airyn Justine - Executive Assistant

Meet Airyn Justine, our Executive Assistant! As Chad and Lisa's oldest child, Airyn developed an admiration for classic and muscle cars at a young age. Her first car as a teenager, was a dream! Painted a beautiful blue with white racing stripes, her 1968 Chevy Camaro SS was a real head turner! She was raised around many amazing, beautiful muscle cars but the '68 Camaro is Still her forever Favorite! Shortly after graduating High School, Airyn volunteered to serve an 18 month mission, serving in Mexico City, Mexico and then to Southern California. This service in turn blessed her life as she became a fluent speaker in Spanish, which has proved to come in handy at times! 


Aside from being bilingual, Airyn brings to the team years of experience in the office setting, in customer service relations and maintains a vast attention to detail. With most of our customers purchasing over the internet, experience like this helps to ensure the quick, easy buying process our customers are looking for. As our Executive Assistant, Airyn is responsible for many important tasks. Along with ongoing administrative support, she also provides organizational success through the management of daily operation and special projects. She also assists with customer service needs providing outstanding customer care. Airyn is willing to answer any questions you may have and should a question be asked that can't be answered, you can bet she'll work hard to get the answer for you! Being dedicated to excellence, she works hard for us and she will work hard for you too! 

When not at work, you'll find Airyn being the most Amazing mother at home. Nothing brings her more joy in this world then spending quality tine with her beautiful daughter, Chloe. 
If time to herself is found you can count on her picking up her guitar, singing, and writing music to which she has already released her first CD when she was just 16 years old, titled "Believe"!
