Customer Reviews

Thank you West Coast Collector Cars for everything!
I recently purchased a 1969 pro touring Camaro and it was exactly as pictured and described. I live in California (9 hours from their dealership), and getting up there to see the car before closing the deal was an issue for me. After looking at all the pictures and speaking to Rich and Olga, I felt 100% comfortable sending them a deposit to hold the vehicle for me and taking a flight to Oregon to purchase a car I had never seen. When I showed up, I couldn’t believe that the vehicle matched the pictures and description perfectly. Pictures can be deceiving, but let me tell you, Rich and Olga are as honest as they come. Thank you guys so much for the vehicle, and if anyone is looking for a 1969 Camaro that you can jump in and drive 600 miles through the rain and snow without a single issue, they are the ones to call!

To Rich and Olga,
Paul and I want to thank you so much for making Paul’s dream come true.
We never thought we would be able to own a muscle car.
Rich had the perfect car for us within our price range and it’s better than we could have expected.
A 1973 Chevy Nova.  The car arrived today and just taking it a short drive to register it we received about 10 “Nice Car” from strangers.
Just like so many other reviews on their website, they are 100% authentic.  We bought the car sight unseen and had it shipped from OR to PA.
At first it was a very scary experience but with Rich guiding you the entire way, he made it an easy process.   He is the real deal.
Olga helped on setting up the transportation and we couldn’t be happier with the company they recommended.  They picked up the car on
Friday and it was delivered on Monday.  
Rich goes above and beyond and if you are hesitating in making such a big investment, Rich is who you want.
Thank you both,
Paul and Nancy

   I would like to personally recommend West Coast Collector Cars, if you are looking for a classic. They are a long way from my home town so I had to think a while if I could trust the info on the beautiful classic truck on the website, when I called to inquire I spoke with Rich, he is very helpful answered my questions, send pics and went above and beyond to help. I decided to work with them and buy the truck. More help came when his wife Olga helped with recommending a transport company. The truck was picked up on time and delivered on time, these guys are great to work with, and I do not hesitate to recommend them to anyone including my car guy friends.

Thanks, Lee

Hi Rich,

I wanted to let you know how happy I am with the recent purchase of my classic car from you.

Post receiving the car, my highly detailed inspection of the car, I found the vehicle to be in the exact condition that you promoted it would be. In today’s world, shopping for a collector car over the Internet, can be a frustrating experience. As I have been disappointed with some dealers and individuals that were less than honest with the description 
of the cars that I’ve purchased over the Internet.

Integrity and honesty will always be respected in the car collector market. Dealing with you, was a positive experience for me.

Thank you,

Such a fantastic experience!!  We look at your website quite often and love the details and great job you guys do on your videos! 
We live a few hours away so having such great views and details on the cars for sale is a great thing!  My brother saw this little dart on the website and sent me down to take a look at it.  He was sure it would go fast.  We went to look and drove it home that day!  Its a little beauty, and is exactly as it was described. 
We have put it in two end of summer car shows so far.  Thank you to Rich and Olga for such a smooth buying experience, and also for giving us the time we needed to really look at the car.  Ten stars from us!!

To West Coast Collector Cars: 

The 1958 Chevy Impala Convertible that I bought from West Coast Collector Cars is truly a blue dream, it looks even better in person! 

For months I have been searching for my dream car and it finally became a reality all thanks to Olga and Rich! I am forever grateful to have crossed paths with them— great, honest, personable, and friendly people. They truly run an outstanding car dealership. Not only were they extremely caring and communicative but they made the whole experience exciting. You could tell that they care about cars and the people who buy them. Rich and Olga made sure that the whole process ran smoothly, and that made me feel more secure since I am from Los Angeles and never bought an out-of-state car before. My classic car arrived from Oregon to LA with no issues. Trust me, if you are looking to purchase a car from West Coast Collector Cars, don’t hesitate, you won’t regret it! 


With Appreciation,

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.

Dear Rich,

The Impala has arrived here in Miami.

Your videos and personal attention to detail were instrumental in my decision to buy.

I've purchased many collector cars over the years and this purchase was exceptional for the professional manner in which you handled this sale.
