ABOUT Crawdaddy Classic Cars
CrawdaddyClassicCars locates and restores modern classic cars for clients all over the world.
Often called sleepers, these cars are undervalued in the market and usually do well on the risk/reward curve. Having
owned over sixty modern classics myself, I know that well-curated cars always rise in value. But you have to pick them right.
My cars are known for their documented low miles, showroom condition, affordability, and collector-worthiness. Market players like
Barrett Jackson often buy my cars for resale in their dealerships. Several have been featured in classic car magazines.
I'm close to Sky Harbor Airport in sunny Phoenix, and happy to pick you up in the car you are flying in to see.
Modern classics I have restored and shipped to collectors in Spain, Denmark, Finland,
Belgium, Germany, Brazil, South Africa, Singapore, Australia, and all over the USA.
