"I cannot begin to express how thrilled I am with my purchase from West Coast Collector Cars. I had been searching hard daily for my dream car for 7 months when I stumbled upon West Coast Collector Cars offering up a 1955 Bel Air in Coral and Shadow Gray. I immediately contacted Rich and hired a private inspector to verify the condition of the car. The car was exactly as Rich had described it with his incredible pictures and video. In fact, Rich was an amazing component of the chase. Every question that I had about my potential purchase, Rich went right to work by emailing me pictures and returning phone calls. I truly could not have asked for a better company than West Coast Collector Cars to work with during my purchase. Rich even offered and located a transporter. You read about bad experiences on the Internet and try your best to do your do diligence before committing to your dream car, but connecting with Rich and West Coast Collector Cars was the best investment I could have ever made. He called the day it was shipped and once it arrive to ensure that I was thrilled with my purchase. You always read about the chase being one of the best parts of the car buying experience and I am thrilled to thanks both Rich and his wife for making my dream car a dream experience. Thank goodness there are still honest people in business.

Thrilled in New Jersey.....

"Hi Rich,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for making this long distance purchase a low stress/smooth process. Professionalism was very evident throughout my communication with you, to include your comprehensive and accurate ad content, your timely answers to my questions, prompt handling of the paperwork end of the transaction, the inclusion of restoration and engine building documentation with the car, and arranging the timely shipping of what is now my collector car. In the future, I will be sure to recommend West Coast Collector Cars for any purchase or consignment purpose.
   Thanks again,

Hello Rich,
The car showed on Saturday. It looks great, I just love it. Also the whole experience of working with you and the trucking company has been great, and the constant contact of the progress of the car from your shop to my place. Also thank you for all the history about the car and the box of parts. Hope to work with you again in the near future on my next car.

Rich and West Coast Collector Cars are the "diamond" in the rough. I searched the internet for a Ford Mustang GT500 and there on West Coast Collector Cars was a beautiful 2008 Shelby GT500KR staring back at me. After spending about 30 minutes drooling over the excellent photographs and a very informative video of the car, I had to call Rich to see if the car was still available. Rich assured me that the car was available and he then proceeded to answer all my questions, well that sold me and I told Rich to start the purchase paperwork for me. During our initial phone call, I asked if the advertised price was negotiable and Rich contacted the seller and to my pleasant surprise the owner reduced the price to my complete satisfaction. Rich also recommended a collectible/classic car financing company that was very easy to deal with and process the loan documents. As to the transportation and delivery of my new purchase to my home in Florida, Rich was very helpful in recommending an auto transport company and getting me a quote. It took 8 days for the car to arrive in Florida in perfect condition, no damage or anything. I got the car on a Thursday afternoon, washed the car on Saturday morning, entered a car show on Sunday and won "Best of Show" for class. A great way to start off ownership. Everything Rich advertised about the car was spot on and there wasn't any "surprises" waiting for me when I first saw the car. Many thanks to Rich for enabling me to fulfill my dream of owning a Shelby GT500KR.

Rich, don't know if you will remember my car I purchased from you in March 2017.
It was the 2008 Ford Shelby GT500KR, silver w/blue stripes.
Anyways, I just want to tell you that I still have the car and love it, along with just
about everyone else that sees it at the car shows I go to here in the Tampa Bay
In the past year of owning the car, I've won 15 awards.
     8 Best in Class
     3 Best in Division
     1 Best of Show (this was a all Ford produced vehicles show)
     1 Award of Excellence
     1 Top 5 award for 1973 and newer vehicles
     1 1-40 Outstanding Rides in a car show with over 300+ vehicles

The car was also featured in the February 2018 issue of Motoring Tampa Bay,
in the "Show Your Ride" section.

Attached is a picture of me with all the awards.

Thanks again for assisting me in purchasing this outstanding car,

Customer Reviews

 I recently searched for a classic vehicle on line and
wanted to share my in experience with West Coast Coast Collector Cars in
Turner Oregon

 I worked in a car dealership for 44 years in the
service department dealing with the public on a daily basis,and learned
very quickly how to read people . My experience with Rich and Olga Dean
was nothing short of Fantastic!.I knew when I watched the video he
presented on the car I was interested in that I was dealing with someone
with knowledge,integrity and honesty, and who truly cared about customer
service . No promises or statements were made that were not kept or
factual and they assisted with information to save me money in getting
from Portland to Turner and Olga picked us up for the last few miles of
our trip . I TRULY ENJOYED MY EXPERIENCE AND WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY to anybody looking for a classic vehicle.

I was looking on the internet to find out what the 1937 Chevys where
going for, I was looking at one that was for sale in the town I live in
and wanted to compare prices. In my search West Coast Collector Cars
showed up as having one. I went to the web site and was very impressed
with the quality of the cars and the reasonable prices. In fact after
looking at the inventory I had a hard time deciding which one to buy. I
E-mailed Rich to clear up a few questions that I had and I found him to
be very honest in his answers. A few E-mails later about price and
delivery and I was the owner of a 1937 Chevy. Rich made my buying a car
a pleasure, it was smooth, painless and above all one of the best deals
I have ever got. The car is everything Rich said it would be. And by the
way, first car show it was entered in {Medina County Peoples Choice Car
Show } it took first place. It doesn't get any better than this.

I've always found it a pleasure to deal with Rich and Olga at West Coast Classic cars. I have purchased 4 different classic cars from them thru the years and have always trusted them to be honest and knowledgeable. I really appreciate the quality and quantity of photos and detailed info on the cars that is provided. Plus Rich is always willing to answer or pursue any questions I may have (contrary to some other dealers I have contacted). While I have the advantage of living close enough to inspect the cars, it is about the only dealer I would consider buying a car from without personally inspecting it. I'm not sure Olga appreciates me showing up and buying cars that she would really rather “keep in the family”. Rich does care about his potential customers as I recall one day I was there and a potential seller (commission) brought in a car in that Rich ultimately did not accept for sale as it did not meet his quality standards. Rich also has a very good feel for the “correct” valuation of a car.
