Over the last 23+ years Buxton Motorsports, Inc. has been fortunate to have
delivered a long list of rare and interesting vehicles to clients all over the
world. Through the process of buying and selling our
inventory it has become second nature to write a check for a vehicle we
have never seen, or to ship a vehicle to one of our clients with the
utmost certainty that they will be completely satisfied with their
purchase. Even though the first time they will actually
physically touch their new vehicle is when it arrives in their driveway!
internet has made it possible to search the nation for the exact make,
model and color vehicle with your preferred options, it has not made
the distance from coast-to-coast any smaller, nor has it added more
than 24 hours in a day. Or given us any less responsibilities at home
and the office. And sometimes when you find the exact vehicle
that you are searching for, actually seeing it, touching it and driving
it is not possible.
while it may be second nature to us, buying a car sight unseen can be a
very unnerving and disconcerting process for someone who purchases a
vehicle once every one, two or three years. If you fall into this
category then you are similar to thousands of our previous
in order to make the process easier and less stressful, we have held
our business practices to the highest standards, providing as
much information as possible about every vehicle on our website, making
large number of very specific photographs available, and offering
service. We also thought it would be
helpful to allow prospective clients to "hear" from those who have
from us in the past - both from our inventory and through our locating
services. Below are some testimonials from some of our current
and previous clients.

Sandy Manly, 1972 Lotus Elan Plus 2 Coupe
"I recently bought a car from Brian Buxton, and I want to share my
experience in case someone is looking for feedback from a previous
Brian was terrific throughout the whole process, which took several
months due to the fact that I live several states away from him and due
to the unusual nature of my purchase.
He was, without doubt, one of the best sellers I’ve ever dealt
with. He was straightforward, honest, patient, and extremely
responsive to questions – and I had a lot of questions. One of
the great things Brian did was he answered every question I had … and
often got back to me later with more information as he got it.
It’s my experience that when you ask someone more than 1 or 2
questions, they will answer one or two; but they will often ignore the
others. Brian got back to me with direct, specific answers to
Just as important as his dealings up to the point of the sale, he was
fantastic about taking care of several logistical issues that I had
after we closed the sale. These were all things he didn’t have to
do, which tells you a lot about his approach to customer service.
All in all, my experience with Brian was a very positive one – so much
so that I offered to provide this unsolicited feedback for the benefit
of others, which is something I typically don’t do. In fact, I’m
happy to talk or email with anyone who would like more information from
me. Brian has my contact info.
Here’s the bottom line. In my experience with Brian, I found him
to be a good guy, someone who does the right thing, and someone you can
trust. I would buy another car from him any day of the week."
Tony Trossi, Chevrolet C/K3500 boom crane truck
"Just a quick note. Wanted to thank you for your patience and help. The
truck just came back from the detailer and the mechanic. The mechanics
words were “ Everything in this truck is brand new “ . Extremely
pleased with the truck and with you. Glad we made the deal happen. All
the best to you. Tony"
Leonard Boggs, 1989 Mercedes-Benz R107 560SL
"Great car, great deal! Most fun I ever had buying a car. Brian was
very patient and understanding and we came to an agreement on price
with very little stress, a lot of time, but well spent. Thanks Brian!"

Porsche Cayman S
"I flew from California to Evansville to buy
my 2011 Porsche Cayman S from Brian. Dealing with Brian can be
summed up quite briefly. The two big factors for me were:
The car was beautifully prepared and it was everything that it
appeared to be in the photographs that I had seen. There were no
unpleasant surprises. The car was perfect.
Brian made the transaction easy. After arriving at the airport late
on a Sunday, we had finished business quickly and I was able to enjoy
my new car. The next day, I was driving back to California with a big
grin on my face.
anyone worried about buying a car "on the internet" from Brian I
would tell you to trust his word and make a fair deal. You won't be

2005 Mercedes-Benz E320 4-Matic
this thing is smooth as silk - ride, power delivery, handling,
interior. All just as it should be. Having been a sports car driver for
so long I was a bit nervous going to something like the E. My fears
were unfounded, its an amazing machine. I greatly appreciate how easy
it was to work on this with you. You can be assured all my future
vehicles will be acquired through you. Feel free to use this as a
reference, I would recommend your services to anyone!
Waiting for D-Pat to call me back about installing the Nav module. I
can see why you like the E-class. I may look at an E55 for my next
daily driver - more power is always nice.
Tad Breeden, 1987
Ferrari Testarossa Spyder
really liked dealing with Brian. Very honest and a good communicator. I
thought that Brian was very professional, honest and up front about the
condition of the TR. He took almost 60 pictures of the car to e-mail me
and was always available to answer my questions. He was even willing to
drive to Louisville, KY in the middle of the night to show me

Alby Berman, 1994 Porsche 911 Speedster, 1999 Ferrari 550 Maranello
I want to thank you for finding
the Ferrari 550 Maranello for me. The color combination, mileage,
condition and price was well beyond my expectations. I thought I
was going to have to settle for a car with much more miles and/or poor
colors to meet my budget.
I remember when I first
approached you after selling my 1994 Porsche Speedster and saying my
next car would be a Ferrari. I had 6 Porsches over the past
30 years and was looking for something more exotic. At the time I
liked the look of the Ferrari 456GT, but had not driven one or knew
much about them. After doing a little investigation, I decided
that I liked the performance of the Ferrari Maranello better, but it
was a lot more expensive. I went back and forth for months and
you kept in touch waiting for me to make up my mind. I finally
drove the 456GT and decided it did not meet my performance needs. Then
I started thinking about a Turbo Porsche as the Maranello was above my
budget. Instead of telling me what to do, you gave me the time to make
my own mind up. This was invaluable to me as really
needed to decide for myself. I think you already knew that the
Ferrari was what I really wanted.
When the specific car came up at
the price you were able to negotiate, I had also made up my mind that
the Maranello was the car I wanted. Timing and your patience
worked out for both of us. I saw pictures of the car months
before, but wrote it off as too expensive. I remember saying to myself
that if money was not an issue, this would be the ideal color
combination along with great options; carbon fiber package and 3-piece
factory wheels. Then you come up with the car at the right price.
If you ever need a
reference for a job well done, feel
free to give them my name and telephone number.
2001 Mercedes-Benz E320 4-Matic sedan
wanted to express my appreciation to you for the manner in which you
handled the sale of the 01 Mercedes-Benz E3204M. As a first time
purchaser of a vehicle through E-Bay, I must say that the transaction
went better than I anticipated and I believe it was due in no small
part to your thoroughness and fine customer service.
enjoy the car immensely and have already received a number of
compliments on it. Most people can't believe its seven years old. The
car is a joy to drive and after having it for barely two weeks, I can
say that I wish I had purchased one a long time ago. A friend of mine
found a 2001 E Series dealer brochure somewhere (probably on e-bay!)
and sent it to me. Along with the manuals in the car, I now have the
complete picture. And, speaking of documentation, I appreciated the
sticker and service invoices that you included with the file; they
answered some questions that I had.
car is in great shape and I am looking forward to enjoying it for a
number of years to come.
again, Brian, and if I ever have the need or desire to purchase
another vehicle, your site will be the first one I check out.

his 1990 and 1999 Porsche 911 cabriolets
you received the title and that all is settled. Do miss the car,
but as you can imagine, in my situation right now it is not a major
concern. I certainly plan on recouping from this mess and will follow
your website and growth as time goes on. I am very pleased with our
dealings and will recommend you wide and far. Thanks for the best
wishes, and God’s blessings to you too Brian.

I received the Excalibur. There has been lot of delays in
Chicago due to lack in containers, and when you are a "small" customer,
I am afraid that you often get behind in the queue.

vehicle. It is in excellent condition, and exactly as your described -
no defects and nothing hidden.
you very much for that, it has been a pleasure doing business

Chaad Thomas, 1988 Porsche 928S4
thought I'd drop you a quick note of appreciation during this, the 24th
month of my ownership of the 928 I bought from you.
could, honestly, just cut-and-paste the accolades from my email last
year ... this car has been great! It has been a dependable,
runner, but has also made me a member of a great community of 928
owners! The culture of support and enthusiasm amongst the group,
around the owners forum on Rennlist, has been indispensable and
from our local events and get-togethers, I made it down to a large
gathering in N. Carolina this year, which had over 100 928s in
attendance. A few of us gathered up in Knoxville beforehand to
Tail of the Dragon, which was great fun, too.
season, apart from a radiator replacement, it has just been cosmetic
stuff; new wheels, fender plaques, clear turn signal lenses ... little
stuff like that. Oh, and I replaced the Eclipse CD player with a
Nakamichi unit because the CD stopped working. I've also replaced
of the interior lights with red LED's, and will probably do the gauge
lighting before it goes up for storage again this winter.
to-do-list item is the motor mount replacement. I've got 'em in
garage waiting to go, but just can't stop driving long enough to commit
to the job! Soon, though, before it gets to cold to be
in the garage!
Brian, I just wanted to say thank you and let you know that I sing your
praises at every opportunity. I've been eyeballing that Esprit,

Club president several years ago when looking for a 968. I rang Brian
up and we began the process of locating and buying a car. Since then I
have purchased a '97 C4S with Brian's help. I cannot say enough about
the professionalism and care shown to me regarding these two purchases.
I look forward to working with Brian again on my next car and
wholeheartedly endorse his process and the services provided by Buxton

and perform customizations along with transporting my vehicles: a 1989

and specific. Without flaw, Buxton performed exceptionally ---
exceeding my expectations in a most professional and diligent manner.

their staff in person. Living in Guam, a remote island in the
Western Pacific (about 6,000 miles from California), all of my
interactions with Mr. Buxton and his staff have been conducted via

speaks volumes in the trust and confidence that Mr. Buxton and his

Mountaineer to us. We couldn't be happier with its performance
and all the extras are a luxury (my son loves the rear seat air and
audio controls!). My biggest thanks is to you for handling this
business deal with grace and honesty. The transaction went so

May Concern: Buxton Motorsports, Brian Buxton, especially has been a
gold medal experience to me in Syracuse NY. Brian handled the
sale of my '89 Speedster, the most sought after car in the 911 line and
possibly the most sought after car in the Porsche Club of
America. His expertise and professional manners not only sealed
the transaction but also led to the sale and purchase of (3) additional
Porsches that my buyer and friends in Central NY became involved
in. I have been introduced to many high powered auto brokers as
President of the Porsche Club in Central NY and have kept my opinions
to myself as a conflict of interest may develop as President. Let
me assure you that I endorse Brian 100% and have written up in our
newsletter to the membership my endorsement of him. If you have
any questions on his capabilities to handle your projects call me and
I'll discuss them with you."

would drop a quick line on my experience with Brian Buxton. I had
called him 3 weeks ago looking for a nice 928 for my mother. He
happened to have an 85 928S. He e-mailed pictures and we agreed
on a price and made a deal. I arranged to fly into Evansville, he
picked me up and took me to the car with everything completed and I was
on my way. For those of you that are looking for any type of car
Brian deals with I highly recommend him. This transaction was
extremely smooth and effortless. Buxton and his place of business
is professional and easy to work with. I had an easier time with
this deal than I have ever had with any place locally. So with
that I would like to thank Brian publicly for a job well done."

As you are aware, my list of requirements for this car was challenging

the car met my criteria, and it did.

flew out to Indiana from New Jersey 10 days later to inspect the car,

1990 Porsche 928GT through Mr. Brian Buxton of Buxton
Motorsports. I found Mr. Buxton to be a trustworthy partner in
finding a car of my liking.
months of searching for a suitable car in my area, I chose to use Mr.
Buxton's car location service because he had been highly recommended by
several people on the Porsche 928 internet mailing list. In my
buying experience, I found there are many variables when dealing with
used Porsches and their owners. However, by using Mr. Buxton's
service I was able to eliminate one of the unknowns because I could
trust the person I was dealing with. He was entirely familiar
with the unique characteristics of 928's and in the end found a car
with the options and color I wanted. I would not hesitate to use
to take a moment to thank you for finding me my 1989 928GT.
Though I was hesitant about buying the Porsche without seeing it, you
clearly did not steer me wrong. The car is in great shape and it
has been a thrilling month since I have owned it.
mentioned, I will not hesitate to refer my friends to you in the
future. Again, thank you for your services and I wish you much
success with your business."

started seriously looking for a Porsche 928. I was having little
luck finding anything on my own when I was contacted by Brian
Buxton. Brian and I discussed what I was looking for, and within
a week I had a list of several cars which fit my criteria. One
car sounded especially interesting, and Brian made many calls to
investigate the cars history and condition. Satisfied that this
car was worth seeing, Brian set up an appointment, which resulted in my
purchasing the car.
happy with the service provided by Brian. I feel that if it were
not for him, I would either still be be searching , or would have paid
more for a lesser quality car."
