Buying Specific Cars
« on: April 09, 2018, 08:51:11 AM »
Where do you look when you are searching for a car to buy. It seems Autotrader classic and other have all shown the same 10 overpriced cars for a year. I know it is difficult if you have something specific in mind. But what is the most likely way to find a car.

Auction
Online dealer
Craigslist
Private seller near you
Car show contact.

Try Google search ,,type in the model car your looking for . Google some times finds ads not on popular web sites.

I hate to admit it but Facebook is where you will find lots of classic cars for sale these days. It used to be craigslist but that has died off some. Ebay has been slower as well.

Car Clubs representing the make and or model you are interested in are always a good source. If they there are no clubs near you, try their forums.

I have always leaned toward the Cars On Line web site -  You may browse by make, which is nice.

Here is a sample of an actual listing -
