Classic Car Marketing


Hear what our clients have to say ...

I want to thank Rick for the great service he provided me in the purchase of my first classic car! The 1962 Corvette I purchased was every bit as nice in person as it was in the pictures provided in the ad. Rick's help in expediting delivery of the car, and his professionalism made for an unbelievably smooth transaction. Thanks again to Classic Car Marketing for making my purchase so easy!

- Larry, Chatsworth, CA

I want to thank Rick and Tempie for the great service in marketing my 1955 Chevy. Their guidance and patience in following up on the sale was appreciated not only by me but was also expressed by the happy buyer of this very fine classic. Thank you for an excellent job.

- David, San Juan Capistrano, Ca

You have been great!!! Thank you so much with all your efforts in marketing my '37 Ford slantback. All your suggestions were brilliant. It was a pleasure working with you and would highly recommend you to anyone looking to market their specialty vehicles. You're the best!

- Richard, Calabasas, Ca

Thanks so much for assisting me on marketing my Hotrod; quite frankly your website and your professionalism have made it easy for me to take that huge step to find real buyers who have the passion for quality cars that are represented by Classic Car Marketing. I feel lucky to be associated with your company.

- My Regards, Tom, Sacramento

Just wanted you to know how pleased we are with our purchase of the 1956 Lincoln Capri. We have purchased several classic and custom cars but this was the smoothest transaction from start to finish. We could not believe how fast we got delivery even though you were dealing with your storm of the century. Thanks again and we will be happy cruising

- Don and Jean Palmer, McAllen, Tx.

I can't tell you how happy I am with Classic Car Marketing. Not only did you help me find my "dream car", but with your marketing expertise, my 56 Chevy sold fairly quickly. In both cases, you did a great job communicating and guiding me through this process, and the best part of this was that you "did what you said you would". Pretty basic, but unfortunately not all that common today. Thank you for your professionalism, enthusiasm, and honesty. It's one thing to work with a person to get something done. It's another when that person possesses a true passion for his job and makes the entire process both efficient and enjoyable. Collecting Classics is so much more than what it seems on the surface and working with you made that experience even better. Great job with both of my cars and I hope to do more business with you in the future.

- Steve, TX

We can't thank you enough for your wonderful expertise in marketing our 1928 Ford. Classic Car Marketing was incredibly helpful and professional and we appreciate that you really cared that everything went just right. You really know your business and we are happy to refer business your way. You are truly an expert in the classic car world! Many thanks.

- Jerry and Kerry, San Marcos, CA

The car arrived last night, and it's even more spectacular in person than all the pictures you provided! Unfortunately it will have to stay safely tucked away in my garage for quite some time given that there's still a couple feet of snow that needs to melt. While there was a lot of money involved for a car that I had not seen with my own eyes, I could tell right off that you were a man who could be trusted. I really want to thank both you and your company and the seller for making this an excellent experience. Thank you so much for everything!

- Dino, Stafford, CT

Rick, Thank you for providing a service that can only be described as extraordinary! When it came to marketing my extremely rare '70 Coronet R/T, 440-6 Convertible, I had many options, including the auction process, which we all know attracts a big crowd. So as not to be lost in this crowd, I decided to go with Classic Car Marketing for an individual marketing plan that would not have been obtained in the masses of a big circus-style auction. The representation you provided me was remarkable. You truly had my best interest in mind with your marketing plan. Your attention to detail was impeccable, as was your professionalism and integrity. I have been in the classic car hobby for many decades, have owned many rare and beautiful cars and have dealt with numerous buyers and sellers and their representatives. I have found Classic Car Marketing to be a top-notch organization. Please be assured I will highly recommend your company to my friends and associates in the future. Truly, it has been a pleasure doing business with you.

- Mike R. Newport Coast, Ca

Rick, last year while at the Great Labor Day Cruise in Costa Mesa, we decided to market our 1936 Ford farm truck. In less time than you could bat an eye the truck was sold and it was time to complete the dream. Mid October, 2013, we acquired a 1955 Bel Air 2 door hardtop, Bev's Dream. The vehicle was purchased in Carson and had been in storage for many years. Your evaluation and assistance in the acquisition of the vehicle was beyond my wildest dream. Then the process began. Without the input and constant guidance you and Tempie provided, the project would have taken far longer than a short 15 weeks. The build partners that Classic Car Marketing has assembled over time were certainly the key to "Another Bitchin Build by Classic Car Marketing". Bev and I will be eternally grateful to you, Tempie, and Classic Car Marketing. Not only for your accomplishment in building Bev's dream, but also for your patience, understanding and perseverance.

- Tom and Bev, Huntington Beach, Ca.

Just wanted to thank you Rick for the great experience with Classic Car Marketing. The three dealings we have made over the past couple of years have been nothing but 100% satisfying. The professionalism and knowledge you have about these vehicles is second to none. Never once was there not a returned phone call or email and that means a lot when a person is excited waiting on their sweet new ride. The best thing i can say about this experience is that i trust you Rick and that means everything! Thanks again and looking forward to finding number four.

- Tim S, Crown Point, ID

Rick, I would like to thank you for your excellent marketing of my 1958 Chevrolet Cameo pick-up truck. The sale went exceptionally smooth and I received the monetary value I was looking for. Your professionalism, courtesy, and prompt return of questions made me feel very much at ease during this process. I would highly recommend your services to anyone that is planning to sell a vehicle and I would use your company again if the occasion arises. Thank you again for your help.

- George, San Jose, CA

Rick, You did an awesome job marketing my 69 RS/SS Camaro. It was a pleasure working with someone like yourself, who is very experienced and a true professional in the classic car industry. I look foward to working with you in the future.

- Jim, Virginia

I recently sold a high-end custom car with the help of Classic Car Marketing and it was a very positive experience. Rick Abate is very knowledgeable and professional, and working with him is a pleasure. I will buy and sell more custom cars in the future, and Classic Car Marketing will be my first contact when I am ready to market them.

- Bob P., New York

Rick: I wanted to take a moment to tell you what a pleasure it was working with Classic Car Marketing, Inc . The photos you took and posted on your website truly defined the highlights of my car. I sold my car in one week! Your professionalism, integrity and follow-through made this sale a breeze, rather than a task. Looking forward to working with you again.

- John B., Costa Mesa, CA

To Rick and Tempie, Thanks so much for the excellent marketing of my classic 56 Chevy truck. I appreciate your expert photography to show off my truck to the best advantage. Thanks again.

Thank you for marketing my 1963 Chevy Bel Air. You promptly responded to my telephone calls and e-mails and did everything you promised. You made the process easy for me. I look forward to working with you again.

The ease of marketing and advertising a vehicle makes this company one of the best! It was a joy working with an honest and helpful individual. Thanks, CLASSIC CAR MARKETING!!

Rick, I really appreciate all the help and effort you put in marketing the GTO.  You were very professional and served my interest as well as the buyer.  You handled everything with the highest of integrity and professionalism.  You made the process easy, fun and stress free.  Thank you for a job well done.

- Dan, Anaheim Hills, CA

Rick, We want to express our gratitude for marketing both of our vehicles. We expected they would attract a lot of interest, but never thought that both would sell within the same day. Your professionalism and integrity are beyond all expectations. Please don't hesitate to use us as a reference at any time.

- Ron , Newport Beach, CA

Rick, Thank you for your expertise and professionalism.  I sold my car in less than 3 weeks, thanks to Classic Car Marketing   It was a very fair deal for all parties involved.  My wife and I are very impressed with your services.  Thanks again.

- Ron, Cypress, CA

Dear Rick and Tempie, Thank you so much for your help. When the cars arrived here they were much better then I could of ever expected, Thank you again.

- Lassie, Denmark

Dear Rick, Just wanted to thank you for marketing my Camaro. My car sold in one day! This was by far the best transaction I have been involved with. His honesty, knowledge and professionalism were just superb. Rick, you're the best! Thanks again.

- Nancy Y., Monrovia, CA

I want to thank Rick and Tempie Abate for all of their hard work marketing my 50 Merc. I got a great price but I truly gained a couple of true friends in the deal. Their knowledge of the hot rod industry is amazing to me. I have owned and sold several street rods and customs over the years and I can honestly say I will never market one again myself. I just could not recommend them any higher, I am sure your experience will be as good as mine. Thank you.

- Rocky C., Huntington Beach, CA

Dear Rick Abate and Classic Marketing, I have to say what a professional and exciting association this has been. I was amazed to find "Sundance," after only being 2 weeks with Classic Marketing, was able to pull in 3 buyers all of which were fighting over the ownership. My experience has seen nothing but professionalism and a real sense of a personal relationship with you Rick and your company. I highly recommend Classic Marketing for anyone who has a car for sale, whether it be a Bentley, Street Rod, Kustom, or Classic. Get ready to hear the phone ring and's sold! Again, great Job. Thank You!

- Richard D., Irvine, CA

What can I possibly say but "Thank You." With the help of your company, Classic Car Marketing, I was able to sell my 3 cars this year in record time. Your hard work and honesty is greatly appreciated. You guys are the best!!!

- Allan S., Huntington Beach, CA

My experience with Rick and Tempie was nothing short of perfect. Their passion for collector cars is rivaled only by their desire to satisfy their clients. Look no further than Rick and Tempie with Classic Car Marketing.

- James M., Tuluca Lake, CA

Rick and Tempie are a pleasure to work with.  They listed our truck in a timely manner and we sold the truck within one week.  They are professional and courteous people and I would absolutely use them to market another vehicle.  Their expertise was invaluable.

- Chris F., Tustin, Ca

Rick and Tempie have brought together at Classic Car Marketing two talents not often combined: a loving knowledge of cars, and integrity. How often you do find that in one package? Thanks for your help.

- Ernie S., Newport Beach, Ca

Dear Classic Car Marketing,
You won't believe it but I picked up the 63 Bel Air wagon today, looks great in real life, it has been worth the wait, started like a dream, drives well, about 1.5 hour drive from Auckland to Hamilton, talk about get some looks, already had one rod magazine ring to do a feature spread. Really, really pleased. Thanks for all your help.

- Steve, New Zealand

I never thought I would be able to sell my car so quickly!  It took less than 2 weeks and it was gone. Thanks CCM

- John S., Fountain Valley, CA

CCM's marketing got me more than the dealer had offered me for my Mercedes Benz and I sold the car in "1" week.

- Chris J., Carlsbad, CA

I wasn't to sure about using someone to advertise my Porsche but after checking around with many of my clients they all recommended one marketing company "Classic Car Marketing".  I sold my car in "7" days and got me more than I wanted, thank you CCM.

- Frank, Tustin, CA

I couldn't believe it.   I sold my car in no time to a buyer in Oklahoma!  This was the best car selling experience I have ever had.

- Jeff, Redondo Beach, CA

All I can say is thank you so much for the great service.
