I am 80 years old and still work every day at Freightliner Northwest selling used trucks. I enjoy working on cars and like to drive them so I make sure all the mechanical parts are in good condition. I would trust my cars to drive anywhere and not expect a breakdown.

Had such a great experience renting from James. To say he went above and beyond is an understatement. Great at communicating and made coordinating pick up and drop off a breeze. The car was amazing! Drove great. It is a 1957, so it was fun to see how designs and styles have changed. I'm 6'4" and I probably maxed out height for a driver. Under 6' would probably be most comfortable. GREAT EXPERIENCE! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Wonderful time cruising in the T-Bird. Runs great and powerful engine. James was so responsive and took the time to show us how to put the top down and gave us detailed instructions. Everything went great. So much fun! James even drove us to the airport when we returned the car. Thanks, James!

James was extremely helpful and easy going. The Thunderbird exceeded my expectations. I rented the car for my proposal and my fiancé was absolutely blown away. The car is gorgeous, exterior and interior, and it drives very well (even in Seattle rain!). Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thanks James!

Jim was super accommodating, and the vehicle drove like a beauty. It created many memories that me and my Now wife will take with us forever. I highly recommend if you want a great classic vehicle that will bring a joy/attention to any occasion as well as a ton of compliments from passerbys. Thanks so much Jim!!

Jim made this process very easy for us greatly appreciated! We had so many people commenting on how they really liked the paint color and how it looked in the sun bright & shiny. Also on our trip we had many waves & thumbs up along the way. My folks especially enjoyed the ride to lunch with us. They also owned a ‘53 & ‘56 chevy back in the day, lots of fun enjoying stories they shared with us. Thank you again Jim for sharing your Classic with our family, you made our day today. It was a great day!!

James has taken pride in providing a clean vehicle that looks beautiful and runs/rides perfectly. We enjoyed this vehicle so much that we asked to rent it an additional day. I couldn’t have asked for a better first time experience on this rental site. Thanks to you James, for making it such an easy and fun experience!

What a delight to rent the 1957 Thunderbird for my dad's 65th birthday! James was great to work with - very communicative, easy pickup/drop off, the vehicle was clean, ran well, and looked great. You definitely get noticed in this car! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or rent again?

Great car. Gorgeous and in good condition. Car is well maintained and has a beautiful paint job. I rented it as a surprise for my dad to scratch his nostalgia itch and it made him really happy. It’s a head-turning car and others approached us to tell us how great it is. James (the host) was really easy to work with. Very responsive and helped me navigate the Hagerty/rental system. Overall a great experience that was worth the money.

James was very flexible and made it easy to rent his convertible for my daughter’s wedding. He went over the ins and outs of his classic car with me. As an owner of many classic cars, I know that they all have their special quirks and that’s want makes them special, and James explained them and provided written direction. everything went well and we had many compliments where ever we went.

I had rented Jim's 1967 Mustang for my wedding/wedding events, and it was an absolute delight. The classic car not only turned heads and received compliments from everyone but also provided a smooth and enjoyable ride. Jim's excellent communication skills and accommodations made the entire process easy and stress-free. Working with him was a pleasure, and his commitment to customer satisfaction shone through. I highly recommend Jim's collection of classic cars for anyone looking to add a touch of class to their special occasions or for a weekend ride. Overall this was a great experience!
