Why cars? Well it’s simple. I love cars. It’s not that I loved them since I was a little kid – of course I had a posters of Lamborghini Diablo on and Ferrari Testarossa on my wall but at that time sports and video games were two things that comsumed most of my free time.
But when I finally get my first car I instantly fell in love with it. And I know that it was real love because the first car I drove on the street (apart from that on the track) had nothing to offer. It was a white Opel Combo B from the 90’s. This car was so bad I can’t even find the right words for it, but it still managed to find the right path to my heart and because it was the first one it will stay in my heart forever 🙂
I love the driving experience. I love engineering. But I also love that cars and motorbikes can save you a lot of time by taking you wherever and whenever you want. You can feel really free while driving. What’s more, every car has something unique and interesting, so you can discover their secrets throughout your life and never get bored. There is always something that you have not yet tried.
My interest of doing something with cars started when I realized that the path I have chosen for my professional life is very virtual and I get much more satisfaction when I work physically and I can see, touch or use effects of my work.
So, when I finally quit my regular job I started to think seriously about the cars. I remember that one day I saw TV Show called “Zadowowi Handlarze” (eng. Professional Traders) and there was a 2 guys who were importing cars from Japan. This interested me very much. I thought if they could, so would I. So, right after the show I did a research and I found that the cars from Japan are indeed in amazing shape and the prices are also very nice. So the decision was done I will try to buy some cars from Japan.
I decided that for few first cars I will buy a cars that are imported from Japan but are already in Poland. That way I would be able to check the market demand without going trought the whole importing proces.
I started talk about my plans with my friends and soon I get the contact to a guy (Hi Piotr :)) who is importing cars from Japan and that way I bought my first classic BMW! You can read about it more here).
My plans for cars trading are little different than you normally see on the market. I don’t want to be a guy who only carries his cars on a tow truck and most of the time the cars stay idle in some garage. I want for my cars that they will live their dream car life, getting all the love and admiration that classics deserve! And of course I want to be big part of this dream car life.
So, because of that I set some rules to myself, that will help me doing things right:
- I will search and buy only interesting cars (true classics or masterpiece of engineering).
- Every car that I buy will be checked by a professional mechanic and prepared for driving.
- The transparency is crucial for me – you can ask me anything about the car you are interested in.
- Every car in my shop will be driven regularly.
- I will show my cars on as many car events or meetups possible.
- I will write and make as much post and videos possible about every car in my carrage.
My plan for first year is to buy and sell 4-5 cars. I will keep you posted on every step I take to make this happen.
