Antique Car Sales - When Buying A Vintage Car, Exactly What Should You Look For?

Most of the times I purchase a car, I make an effort to keep everything fairly simple and to the point. I am a practical person, and I usually have practical requirements in a car. I look at a car buyers book and then look at what I want. How much space do I need? Which car will last the longest? Which is the most likely to keep it's value? Which one can get the best gas mileage? After that I make a decision.

When I got into antique car sales, however, everything got a lot more complicated. I have by no means been much of a collector. I am too reasonable in my thinking. It is tough for me to get my head around the thought that something could be worth more because it is old. With most used cars, the opposite is true. Most used cars become less valuable as they grow older, because used cars naturally become less reliable as they grow old.

My best friend, however, is an antique car dealer in California. He has invariably loved old classic cars, and also has been involved in the family business venture of buying and selling them since he was very young. As he proposed me a job in classic car sales, I could not really refuse. I was down on my fortune, and I required the money desperately. I did not really think about the fact that I will have to learn a new way of thinking about value.

As hard as it can be to promote used cars in most cases, making an antique car sale is that much harder. You see, to sell vintage cars, you need to realise the minds of enthusiasts. Collectors are much more willing to wait than most consumers. They will wait, sometimes for years, to find the perfect vintage car sales to complete their collections. These people don't want you to sell the car, they want to know that you treasure it like they do. They would already know what to look for. My mission, as an antique car dealer, is to bond with them over exactly how beautiful these old classics are. The cars will sell on their own.

I spent a while to really understand this fact. For the fist couple of months, I made far fewer antique car sales than I wanted to. My friend was patient with me, however, and before long, I was thinking like a car collector. After that, the sales started racking up. Soon I was doing so much business that I could not remember what was challenging about it in the first place. I've in fact started to collect classic cars myself!
