Remember a few years ago when we all thought it ridiculous to rent a home for a weekend? Now it seems Airbnb is one of the best-known brands out there. The same used to be said about buying a car online — who would buy a car sight-unseen?
In Episode 12 of Drive the Bid, Derek Shiekhi, “Jalopy Jeff” Sutton and I discuss why AutoHunter and ClassicCars.com are an integral part of the classic car hobby and how there is peace of mind baked into the business models of both. What may seem daunting like buying a car from far away (or selling a vehicle in a manner that may seem non-traditional to some) can be tempered by our customer service representatives who work with the seller to ensure the process is seamless, painless, and honest. Hear what the AutoHunter and ClassicCars.com folks have to say below.
Other discussions include news on the new Bentley Batur and its appearance with other W12 cars at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed, the facelifted 2025 Tesla Model S, and a preview on an Alfa Romeo announcement on August 30th.
Of course, we all discussed our favorites that are currently listed on AutoHunter: a 1978 Pontiac Trans Am, a 1999 version of the same vehicle (an Anniversary Edition, no less), and a 2007 Cragar Special Edition Mustang.
All this can be seen in the above video from AutoHunter Cinema, created by the experts behind ClassicCars.com, the world’s largest online collector car marketplace. AutoHunter brings forth a dedicated live customer support team, quicker auction listings and exclusive benefits for both buyers and sellers.
