Keith’s Blog: Which Car for a Road Trip?

In just a few days, Bradley and I will be heading out for a 1,600-mile road trip.

This journey is long overdue. It’s been almost two years since we threw our bags in the back of a car, put the top down and headed out from Portland.

Our travel and vacation options are limited in this COVID-19 era. Last December, Bradley and I went on a cruise in the Caribbean. I can’t imagine doing that now. We would be immersing Read More

Keith’s Blog: A Father’s Day Trifecta

I celebrated Father’s Day in car-guy style.

In one day, my 13-year-old son Bradley and I drove special cars from three different eras.

We started by taking the 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Veloce out of storage. My good friend Neil D’Autremont has been managing the SCM cars. The car was on the button.

I’ve owned this car for more than 30 years, and I have pictures of my daughter Alex (now 28) and Bradley in the same car when Read More

The Next Gen Wave

We are in the middle of a sea change in the collector-car world. In my three decades of publishing Sports Car Market, I have never seen anything like it.

Much has been written about the changing of the collector-car guard, with Millennials and Gen Xers rapidly joining Baby Boomers as front-line buyers and sellers.

It’s happening right before our eyes. Take a look at major auction company catalogs.

Up until five years ago, their catalogs pretty much ignored cars built Read More

When Will It Be Time to Sell?

There’s been a lot of talk recently about Baby-Boomer collectors “thinning their collections” and “right-sizing them.”

Whether you have six cars, 60 or 600 — the dilemma is the same. Over the decades you’ve been collecting, as you’ve found the specific model you’ve been looking for, you acquire it — often paying above market — and tuck it away.

However, now, as you look over your garage, you realize that you can’t possibly drive them all. Further, the longer they Read More

Judging Steam Cars and Improbable Coachwork

The French just do things differently. This is my third year as a judge at the Richard Mille Chantilly Arts & Elegance Concours d’Elegance, and it is a delight to be back.

By now I have my routine. Fly overnight from Portland on Wednesday, and arrive at Charles De Gaulle Airport early on Thursday. Check into my hotel Thursday around noon, and catch the train into Paris. Wander around — like the wide-eyed tourist I am — during the Read More
