Behind Classic Collection
Our story at Classic Collection is based on the road we have walked. Memories of our racing heroes competing in classic sports cars.
These memories turn with time into feelings for sports cars. Setting up dreams and targets that help carry a teenager through school and education, finally fulfilling the long walk into the strong emotions of driving your first own sports car. These memories, feelings and emotions evolve with time into an enthusiasm towards classic and sports cars. Being part of the community at different sports car clubs, racing activities or cherishing your own car gives you a lot more than it takes.
Through this enthusiasm Classic Collection was founded by Hannu Paldán and Sebastian Lindström in 2017. The enthusiasm has grown a strong understanding of classic sports cars, striving to learn and share our experiences with You.
Stating Company values is easy, gathering the thrust around them takes time.
While listening to dad´s stories of how the first Porsche dealership got started in Finland with many memorable stories of cars being driven from Germany to Finland. Hearing of the exciting times of the -60s and -70s, with AAW racing team drawing Finland on the map of international racing, giving the spark to whom one is growing up to become.
Buying the first sports car and becoming a member of the Porsche Club Finland in 1998 evolved with time into becoming a member of the Porsche Club Finland board, also being part in founding Porsche Racing Club Finland. The enthusiasm led the way to technical knowledge, racing and finally to becoming a partner in establishing an Independent Porsche dealer.
Through the years the character of the Italian sports cars and the elegance of English sports cars have given unforgettable memories. Every Sports or classic car has it´s own characteristics and learning alongside the ownership is a key point in classic and sports car enthusiasm.
Sincerely Yours, Sebastian
