For over 100 years Southern California has been a car-lover’s paradise. Henry Ford himself used to test cars in Altadena, close to Moran’s old headquarters. Sunny weather, good roads, and the Los Angeles lifestyle makes for a haven for classic cars kept in drivable condition. We’re passionate about cars old and new; Vehicles can occasionally be found in our 20th Century Art + Design or our Traditional Collector auction, depending on their vintage and styling.
