Four Reasons to Buy a Classic Car at the Leake Auction

Posted by IronPlanet on Sep 7, 2016 2:00:00 PM

True fact: everybody wants a classic car. Here are four reasons you should make this your own September to remember when you purchase your dream car online or in person at the Leake and IronPlanet auction in Detroit on Friday and Saturday, September 9 and 10. 

1. It's economically sensible. A new car depreciates by approximately 11 percent the minute you drive it off the lot. A classic car gains value by the day. A 1965 Mustang Fastback cost around $3,500. Now, depending on the condition, it can bring around $50,000! 

2. The Batmobile. Steve McQueen's Mustang GT fastback. Starsky and Hutch's 1975 Gran Torino. You are a reflection of the company you keep. That includes your car.

3. You need a trusty sidekick. Like Thelma and Louise and that turquoise Thunderbird, it's vital to have a distinctive car to take you on your adventure. 


4. You never got over your uncle's 1970 Chevy C10 Pickup, the 1979 Trans Am you drove in high school, or the neighbors' 1990 Ford Bronco. Cars inspire love, and that's all there is to it. 

Classic cars are about the design, style, and craftsmanship; qualities everyone appreciates. Check out the vehicles that will be up for auction at the Leake car auction in Detroit, MI on September 9 and 10. Bids will be taken online during the live auction.
