Its 25 bags all day, which I conveniently have here ready to go. What address am I picking up from?

If the cars any good you should get strong money from an Indy. Given you are sat on a hefty wedge of profit from when you bought it then I'd be more inclined to take out the hassle of dealing with Collecting Cars Cowboys. It might go seamlessly (it will for CC as they are just an intermediary with minimal involvement) but nowadays I have less time and patience to deal with carpet treaders, 993 enthusiats (train spotters) checking wiper widgets and having to explain things several times over to several 'interested parties'.

It might/might not cost you but I think more and more people are realising that CC is the new version of the Emperor's New Clothes where the hype, prices paid creates the ideal platform to sell a turd rolled in glitter :what:

Either way your timing for selling is near perfect, you've made the dough it'll get you into a GT car with less folding :floor:

Update. I've had a couple of Indys round and although the offers are good I think I'm going to chance my arm on Collecting Cars. Means additional prep and potential hassle, but potentially worth it.

Good shout - let me know how you get on & whether they are as easy to deal with as I've heard - I'm thinking about using them.
 
Like any auction the key is to checking the details and in the case of a car, go and see it or magnify the images and check thoroughly before bidding.
I honestly think Collecting Cars is a good platform to sell. Sure there may be the odd rough one but if checked accordingly, the bids will reflect that.

I have a car on their website which finishes in 3-4 Days. They've been super easy to deal with and answered any questions I had promptly and expertly.

In response to Zingari's remarks re the Emperors New Clothes, It's been exactly the same with some car dealers i've dealt with over the years... make it look all shiny and the customer will be fooled it's a gem!

I say embrace change and the modern world, just go in with your eyes open. :thumb:

I fail to see what you paid for it has any bearing on what the seller can reasonably expect to sell it for :?:

Its a very nice and rare classic car, the owner is obviously sensible and doing into the process eyes wide open, he has got a good baseline on what the car is worth to the specialist trade but is confident enough in what he is selling that he is prepared to put more effort into selling it to potentially realise a higher sale than he could direct to the trade..........I fail to see how he can be criticised for any of that.........good luck to the OP.........it is a lovely car and I'm positive you will realise a lot of genuine interest and a successful sale, I actually applaud you for not taking the easiest route which the better / rarer examples of these cars will always have the option of :thumb:
 
I'm in love! OP I think she's worth a lot of money. She'll make £100k plus on CC. Maybe 120k on a good day if two bidders go nuts but miles may be a tad high for that sort of dough.

I actually don't think its that good a time to be selling guys. Keep her and the way currency stagflation I can see nice old cars like this at £200k in not so distant future. Doesn't mean you can spend and buy more as everything becomes expensive but I seriously think that car is a better investment than Gold for next 3-5 years. And you get to DRIVE her! Even 1500 miles a year is memorable in these.

Exactly that. What's he going to gain by selling to a trader? Apart from not basically giving that trader a nice 15-20k and loosing £5-10k out of his own pocket?
 
Thats not fair on the indies. There are top notch indies out there that will take top top money for the best cars onSOR and take 5000 pounds profit plus of course adding warranty on an almost 25 year car for 12 months on top. If as good as I think she may be (tough on an original paint black car tbh) ts really all on condition. Be very interesting to see how much she makes on CC though. Exciting!

Agreed which I why I suggested he speak to a few of the well known Indy's .......they would have to be interested in such a car and probably prepared to take a perfectly reasonable margin to look after a customer who is after one......but the very same car, with an owner who is not just looking for the easiest exit route I think will do well in the open market and that seems just the reason CC was setup for :thumb:
 
I've sold a few good time warp condition air cooled through indies and its a good gig for them too. Remember the current buyers don't really use them hence indy relatively safe but you do wet yourself with an oil leak as its normally a £3000+ fix at trade and opens up can of worms for indy if its not just a reseal. So the indy hopefully relatively safe too. God forbid the Indy gets a buyer that actually wants to drive the car :hand:

I remember back in 2007 driving back from work in my few days old 997 turbo. A 993 turbo s in black pulled up. Mine looked so average next to it. Invisible actually.
 
Thanks guys. I think my car is right for the CC route. Rare, low mileage, ok, I have to do the legwork, but that's part of the fun. I squirm at bit knowing they'll make 10k+ from a car that'll sell the next day. With something that would need a bit of legwork/marketing maybe less so.

Getting interior refresh tomorrow and detail later in the week.

Trouble is I want a 991GT3 and they have started to rise in a similar way. I'm wanting to get into one now that have similar values. Two years ago I was £30k shy. The 933 has become a garage queen and that is not what should happen to such a great car, they need to be driven.
 
I was wondering when it goes live.

I think max fees are £6k? Unless I've made that up. Collecting cars/collecting commission will also lower their fees to help generate a sale.
 
I've eaten a lot of popcorn waiting for this one to go live !
 
Great decision, everyone bails in the end, and despite Jon's RTS, the GT car wins every time for driving joy v the smell of old socks and oil :thumb:
