Welcome to Colin’s Classic Automobiles
I founded Colin’s Classic Automobiles to offer the quality of collector cars and service that I found to be sorely lacking in this world of fly-by-night operators and self-proclaimed “experts.” While first and foremost I am a car collector, I also sell a very small number of the best, premium quality cars to discerning buyers- most coming from my personal collection when I run out of room or decide to change up the roster a bit.
Besides this dealership my other “job” is writing about collector cars. The history of these machines and the people that surround them simply fascinates me. I am deeply honored to have my writing regularly featured in publications such as the New York Times, Business Week, USA Today, and others along with frequent television appearances and seminars. I am also a Contributing Editor to Road & Track Magazine, as well as Editor-at-Large for Sports Car Market and American Car Collector Magazines for the past decade. I’ve also worked closely with the great folks at Hagerty Insurance for the past 15 years in their media and valuation departments, as well as doing seminars for them for many years, and am currently their Marketplace Director. In 2012 Autoweek named me as an automotive industry “Movers and Shaker” for my contributions to the collector car world and my writing, including the five (and counting) books I have authored (shameless plug: www.colincomerbooks.com)
Since I am literally immersed in the collector car market on a daily basis, let me share some thoughts with collector car shopping: Chances are, because of the small number of cars I sell, you won’t end up buying a car from me. So my advice is to be diligent. Educate yourself on the particular make and model you seek. Attend any number of the excellent collector car seminars that are held at most major auction events. Do your research. Investigate. Align yourself with a trusted expert. This isn’t pocket change, a good car represents a major investment so find the best and buy it. As time goes on you’ll be happy you did. Having a car you truly enjoy owning is money well spent, and the market has proven time and time again that the best cars are always in demand should you ever decide to sell.
Browse my current listings on my inventory page. As mentioned, I could be the lowest volume collector car dealer on the planet, so it won’t take long to see what I have up for grabs- if anything. If you don’t see what you want listed please email me. Some cars just don’t make it to the website before being sold.
I Can Help
If you have located the car of your dreams elsewhere but don’t know what to do next, I can help with authentication, inspection, consulting and auction or private party acquisition services. Or, if you have a great car or collection that you’ve decided to sell I can help with that, too. I’m always a cash buyer for great cars. To start any of these conversations or processes just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
