Yes, I really drove over 1,000 miles in my 1958 Lister Jaguar race car. On public roads. And Sam Smith was stupid enough to volunteer to ride on the exhaust pipe side for almost all of it.

(Colin has) helped me define objectives before purchasing a car. His advice is always candid and forthright based on his considerable experience.
It is hard to have confidence in people today, and I would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a beautiful classic car and not a piece of junk.
In a business filled with hot air and deception it was a breath of fresh air to find someone like Colin.
It was better than you described!
These cars are a rare find. You will be highly recommended to all.
Doing business with Colin...has been and will continue to be a great pleasure.
You are without question the most honest person I have ever done business with.
I will recommend your services highly to whomever may ask!”
It has been my experience that some folks in the classic car industry "over promise and under deliver!" Not the case with Colin's Classic Auto!
The handling of the transaction allowing me to receive the car the next day was truly impressive.
It is indeed rare and very refreshing...to deal with someone that is both fair and honest...
Working with you was a pleasure as your reputation suggests
We'd be happy to distribute your cards to our friends looking for a good, painless way to find a car.
Buying a car from Colin is more like buying a car from an experienced collector rather than a dealer. Better yet, it is like buying a car from a trusted friend.
There was no other dealer or collector that we felt as comfortable with. No high pressure sales routine, no smoke and mirrors, no unreasonable prices.
I want to thank you for your gentlemanly handling of this... I guess in plain words, you held up your end of the bargain, told the truth, and I am impressed by that.
I hope our business together continues indefinitely!
...at every step of the transaction, Colin did what he said he would do, when he said he would do it, and he did it right the first time.
Passport delivered the '32 Ford Roadster safely last Friday evening about 10 pm. Car looks and runs wonderful.
Thank you the car is excellent - better than I thought it would be.
Thanks for selling me the nicest Carrera I have ever seen. The car ran perfectly all the way from Milwaukee to Florida.
It is an uncommon experience to deal with an honest, knowledgeable, and straightforward person when dealing with "used" cars. You are a credit to your profession.
...your demeanor and approach are first class and a treat – the process has been fun and a pleasure.
"Your description of the vehicle was very accurate and it was a pleasure working with you."
Having purchased all of my cars from you for the last 9 years, it is safe to say I have enough experience with your company to offer my highest recommendation.
You have singlehandedly restored my faith in the quintessential "used car salesman!"
You have always represented your cars truthfully and your cars have been high quality and in good working order as you have described them.
...our ten year relationship has been a rewarding experience...Your passion for the cars and the hobby will continue to make you stand apart from the rest.”
It's so refreshing to have a car which is exactly as described in meticulous detail. Not let down. No Hype. No B.S.
I just wanted to say thank you for your honesty and you know I will be back for more!
You were a businessperson, a gentleman, very helpful and honest, and a person of your word. It was a pleasure to do business with you.
I WOULD NOT HESITATE TO RECOMMEND THIS MAN & HIS COMPANY TO ANYONE LOOKING TO PURCHASE A CLASSIC CAR.
You are the only one whom I would recommend buying a car from without the added expenditures of flying out to inspect it first.
I want to thank you for finding me a Pantera in my price range that I could DRIVE DRIVE DRIVE right away!
Major smile. Great car. Just as described - Absolutely delighted!
I was very impressed with your operation and work ethics...I have a feeling we will be doing a lot more business in the future!
I've always appreciated your candid, honest appraisal of your inventory. It really cuts down on wasted time and unfullfilled expectations.
We recognize you as a club treasure and continue to be in awe...of your wide expertise and detailed knowledge...
Jim Mattison told me "any car Colin has will be better than he describes it".
...it is everything and more than the description you gave it on your website.
