Rare and Exotic Cars

These guys have opened up for business next to my shop and seem to find some great cars. Ken is a nice guy and knows his stuff.

Looks like a dangerous toy store to have next door. Never thought Id think a Solstice was cool but that looks pretty bad ass. Kind of like a Z8.

He really wants to buy Lussos? 288 GTOs? 275s? He has either the dough on hand or customers waiting to buy? Or is he pretty much consignment?

He's got some great inventory, too.. Especially that Mercedes 450. Everything except the Shelby and GT40 clones.

Looks like almost everything is on consignment.

Nice shop/inventory. I really like that white 356...

I'm no expert, but that probably helps if you're a new-ish fine/vintage auto seller.

Oh I wasn't mocking him or anything. Many of these specialty shops are, I wish people trusted me with their old Porsches....

I'm honestly not sure how he runs his business. I believe that he does turn these cars on a consignment type basis. It's like he's essentially a seller's agent or something. None of these cars are in the warehouse.

It seems to work out pretty good because then he doesn't have to be liable for them in transport or storage.

His business partner had an Enzo, Scuderia, and F40 along with the Ferrari 599 that's listed now. Those were all super sweet. That 599 was a pretty slick car

His garage was fun to visit. This picture is from the Maserati listing, but pretty much how things looked in his personal stable, with some rotation here and there.

I just thought you guys would enjoy looking at what he has to offer. I'm trying to encourage him to get into Defenders and nice Series trucks too.
