  • 55 T-Bird



    Over 22 years ago I was fortunate enough to meet and later marry the love of my life Robyn.

    Not sure what she was thinking marrying a Naval Aviator with 3 kids but lucky for me she did.....


    At that time she was driving a late model Thunderbird that frankly wasn't going to work with her ready made family that went from one to five virtually overnight. Putting me and the kids ahead of her needs she sold it and bought a Suburban. Not exactly the sports car of her dreams but it fit the bill of hauling kids to school, soccer games, and many other events.


    Fast forward to 2016. Kids have been gone for years, I have retired from a brief 28 year Navy career, and she's become an accomplished Nurse Practitioner always putting others ahead of herself.


    I have always felt bad about her having to sell her Thunderbird for the kids and I but she has never said a thing about it.


    This year I wanted to do something special for her birthday and you assisted me in making it happen with arguably one of the best gifts ever!.

    I've been looking for that special car and while I was not wed to a T-Bird the 1955 you showcased kind of caught my eye.

    I'll be honest.... I've never purchased a Ford, know nothing about them, and have been a diehard Chevy guy and motor head all my life.


    Well that all changed when you invited me to your home and turned me loose in your garage unsupervised to look at every nook and cranny of your 1955 T-Bird. What I appreciated the most is the way you represented the car, answered my every question, and educated me on what I did know but needed to hear. After our demo ride and brief conversation we parted and I was off to see what else was out there. Before my quest would end I would look at over a dozen other cars traveling to California, Arizona, and Florida. Truth be told none as clean and well put together as yours.


    Well, there's nothing like waiting till the last minute but Robyn's birthday arrived and I had a decision to make so I called you up same day and struck what I believe to be a very fare deal on the perfect gift for my bride. What was amazing is I didn't get to the bank till 4PM and the car was delivered to my doorstep by a professional car hauler by 8PM which completely exceeded my expectations. Perfect in everyway all ready for my big surprise.


    Norm, I wish you could have been here to see her face. I've attached a couple pics but suffice to say I completely surprised her this year with an amazing treasure that she will enjoy for years. This is going to be hard to top next year. Speaking of tops thanks for all the follow up and detailed instructions on taking hard top off and putting convertible top up. Cant wait for it to get warmer so until then the Hard Top will stay on.


    Honestly, I feel like I've not only bought one cool car for my wife but I've made a new friend in the process.


    Thanks for everything Norm.


    Hope to see you soon.


    Warm Regards,

  • 67 Mustang

    Dear Norm,

    I would like to extend my deepest gratitude regarding the purchase of my 1967 Ford Mustang.  As a classic car enthusiast myself, I’ve dealt with numerous businesses and individuals over the years when adding to and restoring my collection. I searched the internet for months and when I saw your Mustang online I felt very comfortable and relaxed in the way you described everything so openly and honestly. Norm, I have to say you were very helpful and made my entire Mustang purchase experience effortless. I really appreciate the opportunity to have met you and as a friend I would be honored to recommend you to anyone considering an automobile purchase! 

    Thank you again for a wonderful experience and for our friendship,

    Ron from Michigan

  • 74 Triumph TR6


                Felt obliged to drop you a line and thank you for the wonderful experience purchasing this “super car”.  Initially, in your description, you said the pictures didn’t do it justice.  That was a monumental understatement.  I have wanted a TR6 for so long, that I would always add it in my prayers, a dream request;  just for me, as a last second thought.  The Lord works in mysterious ways in that I just wanted a TR6, nothing special and one I could afford.  This perfectly restored marvel was well within my budget for a new car and never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be able to afford a car of this magnitude.   Of course doing a transaction over the internet has it’s anxiety periods, but you personally reassured me and made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process.  In my lifetime, I have never felt like something good could happen to me, but you have restored my faith in honesty, integrity and workmanship.

                This car: unbelievable!  I kept walking into my garage to make sure it was still there.  My Father always taught me that you could tell a great car by how the doors, trunk and hood closed.  You only had to slightly push the door to close and just drop the hood and trunk from about six inches.  Then listen to the sound.  This 1974 has new car body sounds.  The attention to detail in every aspect of the car, from power plant to aesthetics is far beyond what you would expect in a nice new high end vehicle.  The roadster Chevy 283 is pristine and Cobra sounding powerful.  I think the biggest compliment I can dish out is the quote from my eldest son, “Dad, how could you afford a car like this?”  Well, it was affordable, which is why I am the happiest and luckiest man to purchase his dream car.  Being a novice in this aspect, I would also like to thank you for the tips on insurance and personally taking care of getting it shipped direct to my house.  You are a great personality and I have enjoyed our talks and communications throughout.

                Anyone in the market for the purchase of a classic car will do no better anywhere than the experience I have had thanks to you.  I would tell new buyers, “shop anywhere in the world you want, but check with Norm last!”  The craftsmanship and attention to detail is what sets you apart.

                Thank you for making my dreams come true with the best car, price and service ever!

  • 1931 Plymouth Roadster
        It was a pleasure meeting you and ultimately purchasing the subject car.  I was looking for an "A" model Ford in excellent mechanical and good or better cosmetic condition.  I was looking forward to seeing the one you had, but, it sold before I was able to view it.  You then told me you had a 31 Plymouth that was exceptional condition in both mechanical and cosmetic categories.  I was truly impressed with the absolute "show quality" inside, outside & under the vehicle.  It is an absolutely beautiful head turner.  It is of a quality that I did not expect to find and I think our negotiated price is very reasonable.  Thank you for the hospitality at your home and the viewing of your other "Toys" and beautiful property.  It was a very enjoyable transaction.  Thanks for having it delivered to my driveway.  That made it much more convenient for me and more enjoyable for me to get acquainted with it in my own neighborhood.  My toy box is now absolutely at full capacity.
    It is really nice to have it full of very high quality, beautiful and fun equipment. 

    Hope to see you again soon,

  • 1977 VW Beetle

    Dear Norm,


    Robert and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you Sunday. The VW beetle convertible is absolutely gorgeous- your attention to detail made all the difference. Thank you for taking me on a test drive to show me how to operate everything. I can't wait until this Spring when we will cruise around in the beautiful blue beetle with the top down! We are both impressed with the quality of this car-from the interior to the exterior. The car really presents helped make this Christmas one I will never forget! 


    Thank you for taking the time to show us your car collection-we enjoyed that immensely. We appreciate your honesty and integrity in handling the transaction. We would love to connect with you again sometime soon. Please don't hesitate to use us as a reference:

  • 1966 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk III BJ8

    Hi Norm-
    The Healey arrived even earlier than expected, and what a thrill
    to see this vehicle in the 'flesh'. I've already been out on a brief
    pleasure drive to experience a classic 60's British sports car with all of
    the attendant quirks and pleasures. It is the purest of organic driving
    that is different from the sophistication and technology seen in modern
    cars. All of the mechanical sounds - engine, transmission, etc. are music
    to the ears of anyone with a passion for cars, and vintage models in
    particular. The handling is nimble,
    with braking and steering very responsive.
    It's been a pleasure doing business with you, Norm. From start
    to finish, I've had a good feeling about the outcome.

    Sincerely and with gratitude,


    Bakersfield, CA.

  • 51 Merc
    I want to tell you that it was very enjoyable meeting with you yesterday to show me the car and to do business with. Your knowledge of the 51 Mercury was a huge plus. I just cant say enough about the time you saved me by providing the detailed photos, describing the condition of the car prior to my visit, having the paperwork ready and helping with a shipper. I will surely enjoy the car and let you know when it arrives. Please keep me posted or send an email occasionally with the other cars you will be selling from your collection.

    If you would like to use me as a reference that would be fine.

    Hi Norm!

    I unloaded the Limo last night with great excitement. What a gorgeous car! It looks sweet parked in the garage next to our other classics. Thanks for holding the car for me until Duane was able to pick it up Tuesday. I really appreciate your help with coordinating the pickup and meeting him at the shopping center with the car.

    It was a pleasure to deal with you from the first phone call to the final detail of the transaction. Your description of the car was accurate and I sincerely hope we will do business again.

    All my best to you my friend!

    Dear Norm:

    What you see is not always what you get. When I saw the Metropolitan for sale in Hemmings it looked great in the picture. It looked just as good when it was delivered. Thank you for always answering my inquiries and for all your assistance in arranging the transportation. The car is just as you described. It's a gem. It's really been a pleasure.

  • Thunderbird
    I am new to hobby of collecting classic/antique cars. I responded to an
    ad on the internet by Norm for a 57 Thunderbird and I drove from Columbia,
    South Carolina to Marietta, Georgia to see the car.
    Norm had the car sitting in the driveway of his beautiful home. He spent
    over 2 hours teaching me all about what to look for and how to evaluate a
    car being considered for purchase. He is an encyclopedia of cars. Norm
    worked as a teenager putting himself through school restoring old cars,
    never dreaming he would be the owner one day of a very "significant"
    eclectic collection of over 50 vintage cars.
    I didn't buy the baby bird that I went to see, but Norm found me exactly
    what I wanted in his baby bird collection. I left not only owning the car
    of my dreams at a very fair price, but I made a new friend.
    It is hard to find a person in this business that has honor and integrity,
    but Norm is the one. He has bent over backwards to do everything he could
    to make this purchase feel right. He even called in favors to get my new
    bird transported to Columbia.
    I highly recommend Norm to a?nyone considering one of his cars. What I like
    best is knowing that he does not need to sell me a car to put food on the
    table. To him, it is the satisfaction of seeing others enjoy cars as much
    as he does and to not be the kind that will "say anything" to make a sale.

  • 51 Mercury

    In April of 2006 I bought, as a wedding gift for my husband, a 1951 Mercury Sports Sedan from Mr. Norm Cohen.  The car was all 100% original, and meticulously maintained.

    We loved our “Fleet Footed Messenger of the Gods”, the Mercury.  We enjoyed driving it on weekends and errands and people would actually follow us home to take a closer look and chat.  Wherever we went it drew admiration, horns honking and waves.  

    Unfortunately, in March of this year (2013) I fell ill and have had four surgeries, with another scheduled soon.  We were faced with an unhappy decision, to sell the Mercury.

    I contacted Mr. Cohen again, hoping for a way to turn, in selling the car.  Mr. Cohen came to our rescue; he purchased the car back from us.

    Mr. Cohen has been a wonderful person to us; we have been very blessed to have such a relationship with him.  We would recommend him to anyone without reservation.

  • Studebaker


    Just to let you know that I’ve had another awesome year with the Studebaker.  She was featured in Honolulu’s gigantic Martin Luther King day parade.  About a month later she was put on display at the Motor Trend First Hawaiian Auto Show in our gigantic convention center.  And, between then and now I could not count the number of folks I’ve taken on one car parades through Waikiki.  My most recent passenger was renown concert classical guitarist, Antonio Carlos Barbosa-Lima, who has now played Carnage Hall once and my living room twice.  I tell everybody that the Studebaker is the most fun you can have with your clothes on. I sure am glad I had a chance to do business with you.

    Dear Norm,

    It was a pleasure meeting you and doing business with you. Dick looked at hundreds of cars before he found the 65 Buick GS that you were offering for sale. It is a fantastic car and I am sure we will enjoy it for years to come. We both love that era of car and it is definitely a first class show car. Not only did we get a nice car but we acquired a good friend as well. Thanks for all of you help with arranging shipping and making sure that the car haulers handled the car properly. Thanks again.

  • 58 Chevy

    Dear Norm;

    We want to thank you for sending us the 1958 Chevrolet Convertible that was more beautiful than her photos “Queen Victoria.” For your attention to detail in all aspects of this sale. For your willingness to quickly respond to and readily answer all of our numerous and seemingly endless questions. For listening to our “story” of winning our first trophy on the drag strip in our teens with the exact blue colored 58 Chevy convertible in 1960 and always hoping to find and own another some day. For being so patient while we tried to complete this sale during the Christmas holiday and your willingness to assist with any minor glitch that came along. For the special treatment afforded to our friend who graciously offered to personally evaluate the car for us. For arranging for the shipping and delivery. The quilt is not complete yet-more photos will follow.

  • VW Eurovan

    I would like to thank you for the opportunity to purchase your 2002 Volkswagon Eurovan Weekender. I know that long distance vehicle deals can be difficult. I appreciate how you handled my purchase, with understanding and flexibility, despite some of the unique payment requirements and travel logistics. It was a pleasure to work with you and to be trusted to hold up my end of the bargain.

    As for the quality of the vehicle, I couldn't be happier! This vehicle is exactly what you said it would be, near perfect condition with all the options in good working order. We have already spent hours enjoying enjoying the roomy passenger area and giving tours of the New Orleans area to out of town family and friends. I look forward to doing the same for you the next time you visit the Crescent City.

    Thanks again for everything,

    Dear Norm:

    I would like to thank you for selling me this beautiful 1963 Rolls SCIII.
    I took the chance buying the car unseen.  It was delivered here to my shop in So Cal looking every bit as good as in your photos on the internet.
    You described the car to me on the phone and when it arrived here I was thrilled that the condition was even better that what you had described.
    Once again, many thanks Norm and I look forward to getting together with you in person.
