Hello Rich and Olga
I wanted to let you know that the 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350 Hertz
arrived safely in Southern
California! As you and I discussed, our family loves classic cars and
especially Mustangs. This one is incredibly special given it's history
as a rental from the San Francisco Airport, it's survivor status and all
the documentation that was included with the car.

 From our first conversation about the car, I had a great feeling about
you and your business. The photos and video you put on your website were
excellent and you represented the car honestly and accurately. Our phone
conversation just added more details and additional comfort for me to
openly discuss flying up and potentially purchasing the car. From the
moment I arrived at your shop, the experience was first class. I was
super impressed with your attention to detail, the cleanliness of your
facility, the warm welcome and all the support you both provided that
day. The purchase experience was easy, quick and you both went out of
your way to ensure we had a great experience.

Thank you again for the opportunity to take care of this Shelby and
enjoy this piece of American automobile history.

Best regards,
John Hinz

My wife and I were looking for a classic car when she spotted West Coast Collector Cars' listing for a 1969 Cougar. We both really liked it, and there were many, many good photographs of the car as well as a video. We had never bought a car without seeing it in person before, but after talking to Rich we felt comfortable taking the plunge. We felt we got a good deal, and Rich and Olga walked us through what we needed to do and helped us arrange transport to Chicago. When the car transport pulled up with the Cougar, it felt a bit like Christmas morning! We couldn't be more pleased, and we would recommend West Coast Collector Cars to anyone looking for a classic car.

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.

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 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.

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

area.

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,

 "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.
