Today's Classic Car Auctions. A Primer

The readers of Sports Car Digest have a passion for cars, whether it be exotics, antiques, muscle cars or collectible classics. When we started this site the classic car auction business was a private affair, largely hidden away to only those who could afford to buy the rare and iconic cars that came to market. Over time the market has changed. The investment-quality collector car market has grown, prices have skyrocketed and general interest in iconic cars has exploded. Companies like Sothebys successfully transformed the global automotive auction scene, helping elevate the perception of collector car auctions to premium events executed at the same level as high-end art auctions. As the market grows, more and more people are actively buying and selling collector cars. Companies now specialize in this market, creating investment funds focused on specific models, while individuals build portfolios and the well-healed continue to buy up the rarest and most prized cars. On the other side, the number of websites and auction houses that specialize in the sale of classic cars has grown exponentially. Companies like Bring A Trailer and Collector Cars have built enviable businesses as online only iconic car auctions, once again growing the market and getting the next generation excited about buying rare and classic sports cars. Below, we share some of our favorite online and traditional classic and collector car auctions. If you are looking for the best place to buy and sell vintage and classic vehicles, these are worth checking out.
