Fewer listings…but better?

Since we’ve moved into our office at Auto Turismo Sport we find ourselves busier than ever. ATS has been in business since ’68 and many of their clients have been with them from the start. And what a diverse client list. photo-1-565x423There is a long-term MGTD owner who knows he has to sell but can’t bring himself to let it go, a well-known author who treasures the ’62 TR3 that he bought new and then there are the multi car folks. Not so much collectors because they drive the heck out their cars. In fact one client drove his ’57 Maserati 200si in the rain to ATS for a “nut & bolt” (race prep). How cool is that.

Meeting all of these clients allows us to make some important connections that will lead to more and more extraordinary listings. So our Mint2Me business model has morphed into something different from intended. We are no longer a daily that posts cars that interest us and our readers (one of our favorites, BaT, posts a ton of stuff lately). We will be more selective. That does not mean we won’t feature your car when you find the nerve to part with it. On the contrary. If it makes it on Mint, it will be in front of readers with the resource to buy. We welcome your comments as usual.

Ours: ’08 Volkswagen GTI

GTI front

Every once in a while you’ll see one of our personal cars come up on Mint. Why? Because our cars are Mint after all. We bought the GTI new from our local VW dealer here in Connecticut. We have all of the service records and original documents. It has been great to us and we have enjoyed every mile of the 92,000 we’ve accumulated. It is adult owned, unmodified, never raced and always garaged. Just recently, we performed the required timing belt change along with the water pump. And just last week, we serviced the A/C and recharged it using the new equipment at Auto Turismo Sport. It is mechanically perfect. Read More

Exclusive: ’83 Mercedes-Benz 300D Turbo with 4,100 miles

front

Yup. You read it correctly it has only 4,100 original miles and it is spectacular. I drove it and it even smells like new. I am sure that if you took a nice example with maybe 150,000 miles and sent it to the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center it would cost you about $100,000 to make it this nice. That is not a shot at the Classic Center by the way. They deserve whatever they get. What makes this car even more special (if that is possible), is the color and trim. It is a very desirable Anthracite Gray Metallic with tan M-B Tex interior.  Read More
