It's annoying, I know, but it certainly is effective. The time
and energy doing the research might seem annoying but it's
always worth it in the end. Imagine being 3 clicks from the find
of your life. That's the way the classic car market works
online. I must admit to being a little bit of a classic car
enthusiast myself. Furthermore, I must admit to being a diligent
researcher. So, when I'm looking to either buy or examine the
collection of classic cars for sale, it's not too tough. So, I'm
going to give you a couple of hints of where to start looking
(hint, it's not the mighty Google. Though, Google is fantastic
for a whole bunch of reasons- a high stock price not being last
on the list!).
1)Forums. This tip is generally only known to people in the
know. There are a ton of forums (basically online community
discussion boards) for just about any hobby that you can think
of. This certainly includes classic cars. There are probably
dozens, if not hundreds, of classic car forums that you can
find. And the best part is that a lot of these forums allow the
forum members to post live links. The links can either link back
to their own sites or interesting listings that they've found.
Face it: if you search for 'classic car' on Google, a few sites
will pop up in the top 10. And, from what I've seen, they don't
change much over time. But a forum allows a much greater user
base to post links to places on the internet that probably
aren't the same as the top 10 listings.
2)Use Ebay. But not to shop. For research. Here's trick. You
don't have to buy everything you see on Ebay. You can simply
search Ebay for Classic Car and then look at the listings. Then,
do a little extra effort. Visit the dealer's website. Look at
their selection. It could lead you deeper into the world of
classic cars that you'd ever imagine. Ebay is way more than a
shopper's paradise: it's a researcher's secret weapon.
3)Learn how the pros buy classic cars online. Without the right
knowledge, points #1 and #2 are almost worthless. Learn the ins
and outs of classic car buying so you can score the best deal
for you money.
