Cars are One of my main hobbies and passions . Old cars , new cars , exotic cars , sports cars - I like them all !! When I was 21 I sold my customized z28 Camaro on eBay (this was the early days of eBay ) and tripled my money , and that’s when I discovered flipping collector cars could be profitable . Over the years I’ve sold many more , always selling on eBay for the ease of the sale , even though it’s not always the place to get top dollar.
Here’s some of what I’ve learned over the years -
1 . International buyers love collector cars - many of the cars I sell are to European buyers and car brokers , which means there’s even more profit in the deal for them to be buying from me , shipping and reselling . Classic American cars from the 1960s-1980s do very well , coupes and convertibles do the best - and in the last 3-4
Years Mercedes Porsche and BMW of this same era have also skyrocketed in interest from collectors.
I find the cars on Craigslist , local auctions and even on eBay . Some sellers just don’t know how to sell a car and the best deals are often ads with poor quality pictures and a terribly written description .
BringATrailer is now bringing higher prices and better qualified buyers then eBay motors
If you’re a car nut and have bought/sold collector cars please share your experiences !!
