Buick GMC & Cadillac
Welcome to Barker Buick GMC Cadillac

Barker Motor Company has been serving McLean County since 1935 and is proud to represent Buick, GMC, and Cadillac on Veterans Parkway in Bloomington, and Chevrolet, just a short drive up I-55 @ exit #178 in Lexington. We are also proud to represent GM Certified Used Cars, at both convenient locations that must pass extensive 172-point inspections. For over 7 decades Barker has watched franchises and competition come and go. A few basic principles contribute to the company's success; good service, fair pricing, quality products and "doing unto others as we would have them do unto us". Words are only words unless they are supported with deeds.
