I first met Mark & Carl back on 21st Jan this year ('19) when I went to view a Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Sport, a car I had wanted from back when I was a spotty faced 17 year old. This was a real bucket list moment, buying the car of your dreams that you now have the means to make reality.
On meeting the guys from Absolute Classic Cars I had a really good feeling. When I got there the car was on the ramp ready to be poked and probed. Mark told me a little bit about the car, lifted it on the ramp and let me get on with it, just the way I like to look at cars. Any questions I had he was there with the answer but what I really liked was how he and Carl interacted. The honesty was a real change for me from when normally looking at a car. There were a couple of things I picked out and instead of the usual "that's nothing to worry about", I got "we'll get that done before the car goes out", no excuses just simple honest answers and a promise to fix it.
Anyway long story short, I bought the car and had a list of things I wanted done on the car which were all agreed to be done, in the negotiated price, prior to delivery. Every single thing on that list was done to a superb standard, to be honest it exceeded my expectations and more. Today when the car arrived I could not stop grinning from ear to ear. It was a really emotional moment, a dream fulfilled!
In the last 40 years I have never bought the first car I looked at, however this time I made an exception as I was so impressed with both the car and the people. We are so used to getting rubbish service and substandard misdescribed cars from the motor trade and I found that I was caught a little offguard here which took me a while to get to grips with .... but all in a very nice way.
What makes Absolute Classic Cars different is they care, are honest, knowledgeable and nothing is a problem, big or small. They want you to have the car you want to buy, not the car they necessarily have for sale. I don't think I've ever met two people in the motor trade less interested in pressurising you into buying, they'd rather not sell you the car if it's not 100% the car you want to buy.
From that first meeting to delivery today it has been a fantastic experience. This whole process has been an absolute pleasure, not the normal chore car buying turns into, I would and will be recommending Absolute Classic Cars to anyone that wants a classic car.
