|About||Colin’s Classic Automobiles was founded to offer a very small number of the best, premium quality collector cars to discerning buyers internationally.|
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.
Besides the 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 appearance 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. 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.
Some shopping advice: 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 in 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.
