Being an a long term avid car enthusiast, I interact with a significant number of car people and firms across the planet. Motor Classic and Competition is a true gem in the industry. The knowledge and skill is flat out world classic. Every time it’s always fact based and accurate. Nick is a car guru or maybe even an exotic car whisperer : ) I value every interaction with Nick, Tiziana and team - thank you for many deals and solutions : )
I have been working with Nick Soprano and the team at Motor Classic & Competition for about 20 years to help with three of my vintage cars. Some of the work required has been very technical and has also required a lot of research, given the rarity of some of the components and systems, including custom transmission work for a 1961 Bentley S2. Nick always gets all the information and provides great recommendations for how best to proceed. Ultimately, the work gets done very well, and on a timely basis. The cars are all running exceptionally well! Many thanks to Nick, Tiziana and the Motor Classic team!
I have bought and sold vehicles through Nick Soprano and his organization. I have never experienced any difficulties. If there were any issues, the situation was handled promptly and professionally. The knowledge that Mr. Soprano has is second to none. He's truly a miracle worker. I've had the pleasure of speaking with Nick about some of his experiences and people he has met though the years. Nick Soprano is a true car guy; not a car salesman. I would definitely recommend anyone to Motor Classic & Competition Corp including my own family. My experience was a complete success and I look forward to my next purchase.
Motor Classic is the place to go for your Vintage Sports, Racing and GT cars. Very Professional. They get things done! Ron
The best. Dedicated to professional standards of the highest quality. Friendly and prompt. Complex issues don’t phase them. Very pleased. Repeat customer with long experience. AAAAA+. Oh, and honest.
My wife and I were treated to Nick's great hospitality, experience and knowledge as he assisted us with reviewing and test driving an '87 Mercedes 560SL in late June 2022. Although we decided to postpone buying for reasons not related to the car, we'll remain in touch with Nick @ Motor Classic when becomes time to "pull the trigger" on such an acquisition. Thanks, Nick, for treating us with the respect and courtesy of a good neighbor.
Living in the Toronto, “Canada” and having always dreamed of owning a MG TD, I was fortunate to have discovered a real treasure in British Racing Green at Motor Classic & Competition. Being a business owner and always trying to ensure my staff are passionate and engaged about our company and services, I was truly delighted to see that Motor Classic had the identical business ethics and business model that makes a company a GREAT company. Tiziana and Nick were incredibly knowledgeable and very quick to reply in detail relative to any of my inquiries relating to the 1953 MG TD I purchased from them. The transportation, documentation and overall services were nothing short of being exemplary!!!!! With the skilled assistance of Mr. Ray Morency from Merchant Custom Brokers in Montreal clearing customs and delivery to my door were seamless. Any individual contemplating purchasing a vehicle from Nick and Tiziana should not think twice as on a scale of 100 their services and follow-up exceed the 100 chart. Sincerely, A truly delighted Canadian, Leslie Colbeck
We have been fortunate enough to share our Ferrari passion with Nick Soprano's Motor Classic and Competition Corp. The knowledge and degree of care Nick supplied made our purchase of a Ferrari 275 GTB/4 NART a particularly special event. There was enthusiasm and excitement throughout making our experience simply superb.
I have never bought a car sight unseen before. In getting to know Nick over the phone over a period of weeks I could see that he was knowledgeable, experienced and trustworthy, a real no nonsense guy. He had.a real knowledge of the cars he deals with and I was confident enough to trust him. He was just great, a man of his word and I would absolutely recommend him . The car arrived as promised and I am very pleased. Tiziana was just great to deal with . She made the transaction simple and easy and she deserves a big thank you. I couldn’t be happier
I had been looking for a Jaguar XK 140 and preferred the color racing green with tan interior. I researched and found some cars but did not feel confident that I had enough knowledge to determine a quality car at the right price. I spoke with a few different places. My decision became very easy after meeting with Nick. His experience, knowledge, integrity and honesty was felt at the beginning and throughout the process. It took months to find the right car but Nick had advised me to be patient and he would find the car with my requirements. I Love My Car! It is everything I hoped it would be! Tiziana was also a pleasure to deal with regarding all the necessary paperwork. The whole experiment was first class. When you visit his showroom, you will see that every car is perfection. He only deals with the highest quality cars. Also, his company obviously has the skills to work on them as needed. I feel this is a very important part of his offer. Well Done and Thank You!
I would highly recommend Motor Classic when buying a classic car. Nick and Tiziana provided excellent service.
Motor Classic & Competition Corp owned by Nick Soprano is one of the most trusted names in procuring or selling classic cars. Nick's knowledge of the entire Industry is unsurpassed. I can attest to that as I have known Nick for at least 22 years and had the pleasure of purchasing numerous classic convertible cars from him - every single one of them has been of great investment quality. His amazing inventory views like one of the best car museums. If he does not have the classic car you are looking for in his inventory he will find it through his network, and you can be assured that it will be one of the best of that model and year. My confidence and loyalty in Nick is so strong that when I am ready to sell my collection he will be the only one that handles the transactions. Truly a knowledgeable and honest man and organization!
First, Nick has always incredible and super special cars! He is a whole-hearted enthusiast with the biggest passion. He is totally knowledgeable, as is his staff. I would guess that those who left negative comments don't really know Nick. He is one of the most genuine and nicest guys in the business. I always got fantastic prices and can't recommend him enough.
I'm writing this because I have to say How Happy I am with this company . I had dealing with Lisa and Joe and I purchased a 63 corvette ..., when I came to look at it Joe and Lisa were very professional .... and I felt confident enough to write them a 92 K check on the spot . and I didn't even test drive the car........ I guess the best way I could put this is ,..... If I were to but another car from them I would be more than confident doing it over the phone sight unseen ,,..... The car is awesome an as advertised,,, Highly recommend
I have been dealing with Nick Soprano at Motor Classic Corp for decades. His knowledge, experience and attention to detail is the result of his life long passion for important Classic Automobiles. His long history of racing, as well as owning some of the most historically important cars, will give anyone the understanding of why Motor Classic Corp has withstood the test of time. Never plan on a short visit as you will only shortchange yourself.
Fantastic cars. Best classic car expert on the planet. Thank you for your guidance, experience, integrity and friendship. Looking forward to many more years of happy motoring with Motor Classic. The Best is Yet to Be!
I have purchased plenty of cars from Nick and never once had any issues honest and very knowledgeable! Very passionate about what he does. When it comes to classic cars this is the guy to come see.
I wrote a review a year ago- I added a couple of photos because that seemed like a nice idea- what a mistake- I finally found my old e-mail address because Google didn't recognize me so no-one could remove the photos- Nick Soprano ( one of the nicest guys in the world) and Lisa (worked for hours with Google)- and she still is nice too BUT no one could figure it out.... I think I figured it out and NOW HOPEFULLY Nick and Lisa can add photos of Nick's incredible car(s). Sorry for the Hassle- I copied the original review and here it is: Buy a car from Nick Soprano and you'll smile everyday - unlike trying to fix a review w/Google. Jim Salestrom Here's my experience with Motor Classics and owner Nic Soprano: I am a musician - I was 47 when I met Nick through a mutual friend. I told him that I had always wanted a Porsche 911 and that I was a rookie. I said "I have three years to save for one and if you find one please keep me in mind" We spoke about details and what my wish list consisted of (mainly a price I could afford- Ha ha) He called a couple of years later and said "I found your car" I said "where?" Nick said " in my driveway-it's my 1979 911SC driver and I want you to have a good experience with your first sports car" I couldn't believe it. He made it affordable and months after I took delivery his assistant called and asked if I was happy. "Happy???" I said??? I was ecstatic! I have never smiled so much in my life. It has been a total joy. The car was showing some of it's age so I took it to North Platte Nebraska and the Car Doctors painted it. (Thanks to Rob Evans and Dan Anthony and their team!) I'm from Nebraska so that's the tie-in. They did a fantastic job. I sent photos to my friend Nick Soprano and we spoke about it this morning. Nick Soprano is a legend in the car racing world. But what a lot of folks might not know, he is has an amazing collection of cars for sale AND he can find anything you might be looking for from his own incredible custom (one off) to the most sought after Ferrari - Mercedes Benz - you name it Nick can find it. I've been a member of Dolly Parton's band off and on and played with John Denver (I think thats where I got the bug for a Porsche- John Loved numerous Porsches) I am feeling blessed that my first sports car was owned and driven by Nick Soprano- I feel that anyone reading this should know that he is a man of great integrity and that you can count on the best deal for your purchase. Nick is about finding the best fit for you and he is about relationships....like the one I've had for 15 years now. He's probably one of top people in the industry for vintage collectible cars. You will find Nick to be the best friend you could have for a sports car purchase. I know I have! Thanks for reading my long post! Jim Salestrom in North Platte Nebraska 9-30-17
In all my years of dealing with Nick Soprano he has always been a straight arrow. A professional, honest business man. Be it Porsche, Ferrari, Alfa, or Jaguar. His cars have always been outstanding and exactly as described. Great service and a great member of the collector car community.
After years of searching for a very rare and particular Classic Mercedes to no avail , it came to my attention that Nick might just have the one. Our first conversation was one hour and before we hung up we had made an old fashioned deal something I never felt comfortable doing with anyone else . Nick Soprano is a genuine car guy not a salesman . He loves matching great cars to most suitable custodians and if he doesn't see a fit he will respectfully decline to proceed . He kept his word and held the car for me for a week despite having several other cash easier offers till I flew cross country from California to see him and the car. The car was even better than described needless to say I wrote him a check on the spot . I was overwhelmed by the quality of the rare cars at Motor Classic warehouse . 1 of 99 cars are not that special at his place as I was falling in love with the 1 of 6 and his of 1 dream car " Sensuale " which he designed and built from scratch putting together the best of all worlds and his racing experience , 60's Italian Ferrari super sports car sensation and parts with better safer build quality , WOW !! I had an amazing day hearing the fascinating story and provenance behind each fabulous road and race car , a wonderful lunch before heading back to the airport ! To finish off this review and a testament to Mr. Soprano's ability and dignity we realized that a an important structural part of the the beautiful car I purchased had been removed during a service in the past. The car was so good that I purchased it regardless but Nick said he would manufacture the part in his own machine shop and install prior to delivery as we both felt it would be impossible to find another car owner who would part with this part . As we were planning how to best manufacture, talk about FINDING A NEEDLE IN THE HAYSTACK WITH PURPLE DOTS :) Nick shocked me by finding the original part after calling his vast network of contacts which apparently came off an old car that had been disassembled 30 years ago in some dealers warehouse ?? THIS WAS THE ICING ON THE CAKE. Any one looking for a rare , top quality Classic car , call Nick first if he can't locate it , he will certainly help you in your search . Thank you Nick for the beautiful car which is already in my garage safe and sound :)
I have found Nick Soprano of Motorclassic in Bedford Hills, NY to be extremely knowledgeable and fair-minded to do business with. Since the late 1970s I have purchased many classic cars from Mr Soprano and have been very pleased. I would highly recommend this man. J. Todaro
Very knowledgeable people. Great support and service. Highly recommend!
Thank you Nick for your knowledge, guidance and expertise over the years!
Beautiful Cars -- knowledgeable, straight forward.
Great guys, really knowledgeable and trustworthy!
