“Why do we buy 30, 40, 50 year old cars? Well it is not for transportation. It is about a memory. That car you should have never sold; that car that you have imagined owning all your life or is it because that car and memory are so entwined that they become one?
In my case it is a little bit of all these things. I had the pleasure of coming across Marc’s website and then had the good fortune of meeting Marc. Now I have bought over the years a lot of cars….some late models and some classic cars. I get sold on the person way before I get excited about the car. When I met Marc, I knew I had met someone I could trust. With that question out of the way, I could focus on finding the car that filled that distant memory.
In my case it was a Pale Primrose 1969 Jaguar XKE Roadster. One very important piece of the puzzle was a working armrest glove box. You see that is where I pulled out the engagement ring when I proposed to my wife over 40 years ago. These memories you don’t just trust with anyone and with Marc Corea the memory is secure. I also bought earlier in the year a 1965 Austin Healey 3000…..now that memory I’ll keep to myself.”

“Marc, it is a little over a year since I bought the 1970 Regency Red E-Type FHC coupe from you, largely on your word as this being a “special car”. I just wanted to say “thank you”. It is the best and most reliable E-type I have ever driven. It starts first turn of the key every time and I would not hesitate to drive it across the country. It is everything I wanted in a great driving E-Type. Yes, I did have a couple of hoses replaced and had it checked by an expert last year who complimented the look and condition. I did add Pirelli Cinturato’s in the proper size and the horn just stopped working, but it is wonderful. I am long overdue in sending this note but it is so refreshing to deal with someone like you. Thanks again.”

“My experience with Marc has always been positive, both in searching for a car, and selling a car. He is very professional, knows his cars intimately, and takes care of details without fail. He recently sold my 1967 e-type, and did a terrific job. He kept me informed along the way, and achieved the price he initially estimated. I would recommend Marc highly in all respects, particularly in honesty.”

“Just a quick note to thank you for connecting me with my recent purchase…the ‘49 Triumph 2000 Roadster. As with the Austin Healey 3000 I purchased from you a few years ago, this vehicle is everything you represented and more. My only complaint might be that you understated the reaction the car brings wherever I go – and the need to allow extra time on every trip – even to the gas station! Thanks again.”
