Buying a classic car or a sports car in Corona pandemic from Sweden

The COVID-19 virus is spreading a cross the globe. Every country and person has a different approach and opinions about how to fight it and how to stay safe.

Buying a classic car from a foreign country in such time could be problematic.

However, if you are one of those that planned to buy a classic car but say that you have to wait until the COVID-19 pandemic is over, I think it is time for you to realize that you will never buy any classic car since the Corona virus will never go away. It is here to stay just like HIV. We will have a vaccine one day, and personally I will refuse to take it until I know it is 100% safe. And, that will take many years. There are already and will be more drugs to give you [...]

Owning a number of vintage cars, myself I sat down and started to think about how this would affect my own classic car investments. My crystal ball is unfortunately broken but here is a couple of things to keep in mind.

During the last economy crisis I remember being away on two of the major classic car shows that take place in October in Salzburg Austria Classic Expo and then a week later the biggest collector automobile event [...]

Volvo P1800 Buyers guide

Read this before you buy a Volvo P1800 P1800S or P1800ES
Volvo P1800 buyers guide

I would say the production of the Volvo P1800 can be divided in three series or periods if you like. The first period being the cars Manufactured by Jensen in U.K. The second period will be the S model. And even though many people would like to think that S is for sport, it is actually when the assembly of the cars where moved to Sweden. The last period of the Volvo P1800 would be the Volvo P1800E models divided in P1800E and P1800ES.

1961-1962 P1800 Jensen

The Volvo P1800 where during this period built in England by the Jensen factory and you refer to P1800 Jensen up to chassi 6000. The output was 100hp and if you have ever driven a Jensen car you would agree that these cars feels [...]

It is getting more common with brand/model databases or registries. Some person starts a website where people who want to get their car famous can list their car with chassi number, pictures etc. And many times the owner of the website is actively seeking out cars advertised for sale in order to fill up their database. Some of these later on charge customers who want to have access to their database!

But also many internet crooks ask for chassi number and copies of registration documents. They then steal the pictures from the website where the car is advertised and then advertise the car on another place, like With these pictures and copies of registration they appear as a credible owner of the car, for some naive buyer who thinks ebay will take responsibility when they have [...]

When one door closes….

When one door closes....

So, you would like to come and see my showroom? You are actually here already! Classix has gone from the big luxurious glass showroom open daily to the public, to being a 24-hour online showroom. And cars are shown in person to prospective clients in private by appointment only. Our goal is to continue developing the way we can get you to understand the quality of a certain car. We do not want to waste your time (and ours) to have you go around looking at cars that are not what the seller said they would be. Honestly, not many classic cars are “show cars, councours or mint condition” but they could still be great cars! Our aim is to get all the facts on the table before time and money is invested, so that [...]
