RICH CELENZA sits down with one of his buddies RON THOMAS, who is known in Orlando Florida as “The Porsche / Ferrari Aficionado"! Rich loves talking with Ron because he teaches him all about exotic and vintage cars. Ron is also a member of the Porsche Club of America (PCA). Rich and Ron first start off talking about an exotic car show at Old Town in Kissimmee Florida. There are also shows at the Celebration Exotic Car Festival and Festivals of Speed. Ron gives you a breakdown on what is going on in the world of Porsche which includes new and old style Porsche's. Ron gives you a breakdown on what life is like when buying a Ferrari.
They discuss what type of exotic cars lose the most value and how complicated and expensive it is to work on certain vintage cars. They talk about all the different types of people who buy and work on exotic cars. Some of these people like to collect cars as others like to buy them and exchange out after a year or so. The question also arises is it smarter to invest in an older vintage classic car, or buy a current car that depreciates so quickly throughout the years?
They also get into where is a better place to buy a car. Is it the auction or from a dealership? They talk about the Porsche designed the Panamera, Cayenne SUV and Macan. They get into what Ron is going through at his Hyundai dealership during the Coronavirus pandemic. Ron brings up how Carvana is changing the way people are purchasing cars.
