These are the guys who look after the most incredible, rare and pristine classic cars...
So as you probably can tell from the past few months, we’ve been exploring our pre-existing interest in motorsports and automotives more and more. The relationship between the motorsports industry and the watch industry is undeniably there and very prominent. So when a friend of ours invites us to visit one of the most impressive collections of vintage and classic cars for sale only a stone’s throw away from WatchGecko HQ, there is no way we could say no.
The Classic Motor Hub is a company I’ve known about for some time now, predominantly through Instagram. Regular as clockwork, myself and Ben will tag each other in posts on Instagram of insane cars and more than likely @theclassicmotorhub will be included in the tagging.
