If you’re looking to buy your first car, then you’re going to want to look at vintage cars.
They’re an iconic part of the car collecting community and are still in demand.
That means if you’re thinking about buying a vintage car, you’re probably going to need to get in touch with someone who’s experienced buying vintage cars, said Mike Pizzano, owner of Pizzan Auto, a dealership in Atlanta, Georgia.
Pizzana said he was looking to sell a 1956 Porsche 356CX-S in May, and had contacted two people who had experience buying vintage vehicles, but neither had the cash to buy one.
“I’m in a bit of a hurry to get out of this market, and I’m just looking for the best prices,” he said.
The car in question is owned by former Georgia Tech football coach Jim Davis.
Davis bought the car in 1991 for $1,800.
Pizano said he knew of only one other owner who bought it from Davis and had to pay a $300,000 cash price.
Paz said his wife was one of those people who knew Davis, and said she and Pizzani had bought a 1958 Porsche 356 CX-5.
“My wife and I are still together, so she knows the history of this car, and she knows about the restoration process, which is what makes it unique,” Pizana said.
“It was not a very expensive car.”
Pizani said that he and his wife had a lot of fun in their buying process.
They bought it for $100,000 at auction, and the car is still in good shape, he said, and Pizan had plenty of space for a museum to display it.
PIZAN AND PIZANEARPizzano said that when it comes to cars, he knows one thing for sure.
“The best thing I’ve ever done for a car is to sell it,” he added.
Piazani and Paz have been selling vintage cars since 1992, and they both said they never imagined they would be in the luxury car business.
“There’s a lot that goes into a vintage, and we’re not really concerned with that,” Piazano said.
He said he doesn’t want to make a quick buck selling cars.
“But I don’t want my kids to go out and buy a $1 million car.
I want to save a couple of hundred grand,” he explained.
Pizza said that the vintage car market is booming right now, and he’s not going to stop anytime soon.
“In a few years, it will be $5 million or $6 million.
It’s just a matter of time,” he told ABC News.
PILOT AND PILATPizza said he and Pazzani had a long conversation about the car.
They decided that they wanted to buy it, and then they went ahead and made arrangements to get a license plate, Pizzanes name, and to go by that name.
They also asked if Pizzanos wife could have the car as a “staging vehicle,” so that they could show her pictures of it.
They wanted to get it certified, and it was.
They drove it around for a week, and after it was certified, Pizans wife took it out for a day trip to see friends.
Pitzani said he believes he and the Pizzans are the first people in the country to have purchased a vintage automobile at auction.
Pziazano and Piazan said that their first purchase was for a 1967 Porsche 356, and that it was sold at auction for $6,500 at auction in January.
The pair said that they thought it would sell for $30,000.
PZ, however, said that it sold for $50,000 and that the car was still in great shape.
“When you have a Porsche, you can really drive it around,” Pizzane said.
Pzzano and his Porsche will soon be getting another car in the form of a 1969 Porsche 356 Cabriolet.
“We were going to have a lot more cars in the coming months,” Paz told ABC.
“Hopefully, we can get a car in in time for Christmas, and hopefully, we get another car this year,” he laughed.
Piazza said that she and her husband have a long history of owning vintage cars in Georgia, including a Porsche 356 in 1957.
“As you can imagine, I’ve always been a Porsche fan, and this is going to be the last of them,” she said.
In addition to Pizzanna and Pzannac, Paz and Pizza also owned two Pizzannas cars, the 1955 Porsche 356-Carrera and a 1965 Porsche 356 Coupé.
Prizano said the car they sold at the auction had a “really good, solid chassis” and that they will soon have it certified.
Pazzano said they plan to have more vintage cars come
