In the Market for a Collectible Car? Try an Estate Sale

For some people, buying a collectible car is a dream come true. If this sounds familiar, you’re closer to your dream becoming a reality than you ever realized. You simply need to find the right vehicle at the right price.

Here’s why so many people never find what they’re looking for: their eyes are in all the wrong places.

Sure, you can find a deal from a local seller – maybe even a dealer – or online. However, if you only consider these traditional avenues, you could be missing out on the deal of a lifetime.

And that’s why you should get into the habit of visiting local estate sales. You never know when you’ll find a collectible car that’s been hiding in someone’s garage or shed for a countless number of years.

As you begin your search for a collectible car, keep in mind the six major categories:

•    Antiques

•    Vintage

•    Muscle

•    Classic

•    Exotic

•    High performance

Maybe you’re interested in an antique car, like the one your grandfather drove when he was a teen. Or maybe you have a need for speed, so you turn your attention to a muscle car like a Pontiac GTO.

If you keep an open mind, there’s a good chance you’ll eventually come across a find at an estate sale that piques your interest. While it may not be in perfect condition – or even drivable – part of the fun is fixing it up to make it your own.
