Hobby Survey: On Buying And Selling Collector Cars
The collector car market is in mint condition, according to Hagerty's Second Annual Collector Car Hobby Survey. Results revealed nearly half of the 3,500 respondents purchased a collector car in the past five years. Of those purchases, 46 percent were direct-from-the-owner sales and about 21 percent were online transactions. Clearly, while people like to see the car up close before shelling over their hard-earned cash, few will travel great distances for the privilege. Only 10 percent said they would travel 250 miles to buy a collector car.
