Welcome to Colin’s Classic Automobiles
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 (some of which can be seen at The Comer Collection Website) when I run out of room or decide to change up the roster a bit.
My other passion 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 remain a Contributing Editor to Road & Track Magazine, as well as having served as Editor-at-Large for Sports Car Market and American Car Collector Magazines for over a decade. I also helped Hagerty Insurance for 18 years with seminars, events, writing for their magazine, and being on their valuation team, as well as being 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 eight (and counting) books I have authored (shameless plug: Colin Comer Books Website)
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 live auction events. Do your research. Investigate. Align yourself with a trusted expert. And, as Public Enemy famously said. “Don’t Believe The Hype!” Auction descriptions and advertisements can often be deceptive, fantasy or, at minimum, contain serious sins of omission. Always trust, but verify. This isn’t pocket change, a good car represents a major investment so find the best one example you can afford and buy it. As my good friend and noted “car guy’s car guy” Bruce Meyer says “buy the best and only cry once!”
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, as I know of a lot of cars out there that never hit the internet or an auction to be 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 Again since this enterprise is strictly part-time email is far better than calling as I’m usually off doing some car thing somewhere or writing so tend to get way behind on returning calls.
Thanks for visiting!
