10 more Classic Driver dealers to follow on Instagram
An independent ‘boutique-style’ dealer, Copley Motorcars prides itself on the fact that it only deals in cars its own employees love. As a result, the variety of stock offered for sale – most of which stars on the company’s Instagram account – is eclectic, from Ferrari 250 GT Lussos, to Land Rover Defenders.
Founded in 2005, Driver Source is something of a jack-of-all-trades, offering maintenance and servicing, storage, detailing and purchasing services, as well as boasting a vast inventory of classic cars for sale, to appeal to every taste and budget. Instagram is a place where the company can document its stock, and showcase its services.
An unashamed Porsche specialist (though it does deal with historically significant cars of many different marques), Road Scholars is as much about restoration and maintenance as it is about simply selling. With locations on both the East and West coasts of America, a quick glance at Road Scholars’ Instagram confirms that it’s run by true enthusiasts.
Rosier Classic Sterne
German dealer Rosier Classic Sterne specialises in predominantly German classics, as evidenced by the plethora of Mercedes-Benzes, Porsches and BMWs featured on its Instagram feed. We particularly like the shot of the Mercedes 190E Evolution II taking a bath…
Okay, so the Keno Brothers might not strictly be a classic car dealer, but the newly founded auction house has burst onto the scene with a fresh professionalism and sharp, stunning visuals. Its inaugural sale takes place in New York on 19 November, and its Instagram account provides a behind-the-scenes look at just what goes into curating such an event.
Samuel Laurence Ltd
Samuel Laurence might be relatively young in age, but the London-based classic car specialist has established a solid reputation for his clear-cut attitude and fresh approach. Follow him on Instagram to find out what it’s like to live truly immersed in a world of classic cars.
EMG’s current inventory includes both a 1959 Porsche Super tractor and a 1993 Jaguar XJ220, telling you a little more about the variety of classics this US-based dealership chooses to deal with. Run by enthusiasts with more than a penchant for Porsches (its past collection included a 935 JLP3 and two 962s), the company’s broad-ranging Instagram feed is testament to this.
Knowledge, trust and discretion are the three principles on which Gregor Fisken’s eponymous business was founded. Its relatively young Instagram feed features many photos from its famous London mews showroom, which lends itself as the perfect backdrop for some of the world’s most special classic cars.
Tom Hartley Jnr
Having not long parted from his father’s family business to go it alone, Tom Hartley Jnr has a discerning eye for the very best classics, as evidenced by his Instagram feed, in which he documents his fast-moving stock. The ultra-rare steel-bodied, ex-Eric Clapton Ferrari 250 GT SWB and the pristine Aston Martin DB4 Volante he recently sold are good cases in point.
Something of a barn-find bounty-hunter, Philadelphia-based LBI Limited benefits from having a fantastic in-house photographer in Nick Zabrecky, who lovingly and skilfully documents its stock. Fortunately, many of these shots feature on the dealer’s Instagram feed, as well as a few behind-the-scenes photos, of course.
... and not forgetting Classic Driver
Instagram could have been born for our stunning original photography, particularly the intricate detail shots for which we’ve become especially known. Don’t forget to follow Classic Driver (we’ve just hit 15,000 followers – only 975,000 to go…), as well as members of the editorial team, Alex Easthope, Joe Breeze, Jan Baedeker, and J. Philip Rathgen.
