Ray Huffines is a third generation automobile dealer principal for the Huffines Auto Dealerships. Ray grew up in Commerce, Texas where his father had the Chevrolet Buick Pontiac dealership. As soon as Ray had his drivers’ license he started working at the dealership; as a mechanic’s helper, as a parts department stocker, counterman and driver. After college at Texas A&M, Ray sold cars and later became the sales manager at his father’s Chevrolet dealership in Lewisville. Ray then went into politics working with Texas Governor Bill Clements as his personal assistant. In 1983 he went back to the Chevrolet dealership in Lewisville as the Service Manager. At the same time he was awarded the Chevrolet point in Plano opening in 1984. He added a Chrysler dealership in Plano and a Dodge dealership in Lewisville in 1986. Ray ran the Plano dealerships while his dad ran the Lewisville dealerships. That was the beginning of their expansion with a total of eight dealerships in Plano, McKinney, Denton, and Lewisville.
On May 5, 1924 Huffines Motor Company opened for business in downtown Denton. J.L. Huffines, Sr. founded the company on two principles which are still the benchmark for all decisions made at the dealerships – treat the customer the way they want to be treated and support the community.
