The Rick Ridings Story

1996 - Where It All Began

Over 25 years ago, Rick Ridings bought Strohl Ford in Monticello IL and opened their doors just a few months after the paperwork was completed.

Rick was no stranger to working in a dealership as his father, Bob Ridings, opened his first store's doors in 1975 in Taylorville, IL. Since 1975, Bob Ridings grew to several stores across Central Illinois. 

1998 - Growing Fast!

In just two years after the grand opening, we were growing! We extended the dealership's showroom adding more customer seating and extended the service bay from 4 to 8* adding more Master Technicians to serve our customers.

2015 - Improving The Customer Experience

We expanded our customer lounge again, providing comfortable seating, tables and more customer amenities. We added some more offices and a large carport to pull vehicles up and out of the elements for our customers to have a comfortable test-driving experience. 

2021 - New Brands, Same Message

In January of 2021, Rick Ridings added two more dealerships to the Ridings Auto Group: Ridings Chevy Buick, and Ridings Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

We're excited to offer more brands and more locations for our customers. We've always been about making a customer for life and not just for the sale, growing the products we offer allows us to do that with more people.
