In today’s economy, everyone is asking us how the collector car market is doing. Well believe it or not, here at British Sports Cars the market has been excellent and we see no sign of it slowing down. We did have a downturn that lasted about two months, but things quickly picked up and we’re right back in the swing of things. Today’s market is heavily influenced by the internet and foreign currency. The increasing growth of the internet has made it very easy for foreign buyers to find and purchase classic vehicles. Close to 90% of what we are selling is going to Europe. You would think that it’s not cost effective to ship a car to Europe, but in fact it is very quick and easy. We can ship to most European countries for only $1,000 and have it there in about six week’s time. The actual shipping takes only about four weeks but it takes an additional two weeks to clear customs. With the US dollar suffering and the Euro as strong as it is, not only is it quick and easy but there is a lot of profit to be made once you figure in the exchange rates.
