"Life's Too Short For Ordinary Cars" is our motto, because Class Winners Collector Vehicles is all about getting you into the drivers seats of automobiles you've always wanted, but simply couldn't get. 

Leveraging experience, a worldwide network and the US DOT's 25 year exemption for importing non-compliant classic cars, we can get those European-market saloons and hot hatches you saw on Top Gear, the sporty Japanese Domestic Market Kei coupes (AZ-1, Nissan Figaro), convertibles (Honda Beat, Suzuki Cappuccino), mini-trucks and microvans you drove on Gran Turismo and Forza, as well as the dream classics and muscle cars like Ferraris, Porsches, Corvettes and Mercedes that graced the posters on your bedroom wall and desktop of your computer. 

Part of what makes us different is that everyone at Class Winners is a car fanatic. We've all spent more of our lives working on, showing, racing, restoring, writing about, photographing and helping people buy and sell cars than our families want to admit. We feel like the world is a better place when we help another person fulfill their dream of owning something that puts a smile on their face every time they turn the key. We're not about image or charging customers high prices to fund lavish dealership showrooms -- just about cars, parts and supporting the people who enjoy them.

Whether you're looking for a unique primary car on a budget or a cost-no-object addition to your collection, Class Winners brings the same expertise to ensure you don't overpay for your car when you buy or get handed a raw deal when it's time to sell or trade up.

Class Winners is proud to be a licensed, bonded dealer. Located in Olympia, WA - we buy from and ship to all over the world.
The Car Guy In-Chief Behind Class Winners
​​
Sam Barer- Founder/CEO
Not many people can claim a career as diverse and interesting as Sam's. Aside from starting Class Winners, he is most recognized as a former collector automobile journalist with a syndicated collector vehicle newspaper column, freelance work for major international magazines and websites and technical realism consulting credits on two NY Times Best Sellers and a feature length movie, It's also Sam's long tenure in marketing and leadership positions in high tech corporations and early work on legislative issues for Members of Congress that enable him to identify, analyze and predict emerging market trends affecting opportunities and valuations.

Sam has been let loose on the road with 100-year old antiques, day-old supercars, concours-winning classics, $300 pony car purchases and most types of automobiles in between. Also a veteran of show field judging, major auctions, races, repair procedures and restorations, he applies his industry connections, as well as encyclopedic knowledge of collector vehicles and market trends to ensure Class Winners customers get the exact car they want.

Sam has owned a plethora of interesting cars, including many JDM Suzukis Cappaccinos, Toyota Seras, Honda Beats, as well as many Corvettes, Triumphs, Ferraris, Porsches, Pony Cars (Mustangs/Camaros), Mopars, and is the caretaker of his father's 1929 Franklin 130 Convertible Coupe.
