Being exposed to the hobby as a child sparked that interest and fast forward we translated our love of classic cars into a niche business here in the NY Capital Region over 6 years ago. Some car enthusiasts have an allegiance to a particular brand like a Chevy, Ford or Dodge, and remain “loyal” to that brand. Others go beyond appreciation for American made automobiles, and have come to love the European cars as well. Vintage Mercedes, Jaguars, Porsches, Land Rovers and the like. They are well built, most far superior to American products of the same period, and are timeless classics. We love them all! 38 This 1969 Land Rover is powered by a modern fuel-injected engine and has disc brakes, power steering, heated seats and many more upgrades.
