Phil O’Brien turned his love of classic vintage sports cars into a business focused on assisting others in realizing their dream of owning and driving a classic sports car of their own. Phil has been helping friends and family for years to determine which type of sports car would suit their needs. In March of 2018 with the support and encouragement of his wife, he decided to launch a small business and Sports Car Guy, LLC was created.
Phil’s interest in driving started at the early age of 13 when he bought his first car - a 62 Chevy Nova for $29.00. Obviously with no license, Phil was limited to driving his gem on private dirt roads with mom in the passenger’s seat! When he finally earned his driving license, he was eager to start his search for the perfect sports car. He found a 1973 Triumph TR6 and was hooked. Phil always enjoyed driving sports cars, but it wasn’t until five years ago that the old nostalgia of that TR6 began to itch! At that time he bought the first car in his collection, a 74 Triumph TR6 (Mimosa Yellow). He quickly realized that as a weekend fun car that vintage cars were far more fun and certainly a lot less cost wise to insure than the new cars!
Today Phil enjoys driving and collecting vintage cars especially British, Italian and German models, but it is more fun to help others find the perfect sports car. His goal for starting the business is fairly simple to help people find and drive their passion!
