1950 Plymouth Special Deluxe

We have thousands of buyers and sellers who visit our auctions every year. Here's just some of the comments that we receive.

In the world of collector car auctions I usually only hear bad things about auction houses and having been involved in the industry from announcer for VIN specialist, I have seen and heard a lot. But one thing I have never heard is a bad word about McCormick Auctions. You are the only auction house in S. Calif that has figured out how to conduct a great sale and seemingly make everyone happy. Your father explained to me some of the things that set McCormick apart from other houses, and apparently he has it right.

Continued success to both of you, hopefully I will make it to your November sale. Continued Success.

I will be happy to bring three of my classic cars there in November. My last experience with you guys was phenomenal.

Thank you

Dear Keith and Staff,
Thank you so much for your support in selling my late husbands car ( lot 245 )at your November 2017 Auction after his unexpected passing. You made what was an extremely difficult process for me much easier,and I will always remember that. Thank you so much.

Merry Christmas
Jodi Isenberg

Just wanted to thank you for a very pleasant experience. Everyone we dealt with in consigning our car was professional, thoughtful and courteous. I would recommend McCormick!

To All The McCormick’s,
You had another great auction! You can be proud of what you have built. Don’t ever think you are better than your customers, stay humble and friendly. The other auctions have become prima donnas that don’t care. You guys are great!

I bought our dream car at your Business, we are extremely happy with our car, we love it. When we were negotiating the deal I remember the seller wanted to know if we were going to do any modifications, and we mentioned “No” we have pretty much kept her the way she came to us. All we have done is taken her in and had her fully checked out inside and out, she is a perfect little Gem, there were only a few minor repairs mostly maintenance, but all in all she got a good bill of Health. Now part of this deal was for me to send pictures 1yr later to prove we have taken good care of her. So enclosed as I kept my word are pictures of her at the Long Beach Car show at signal hill. I want to thank McCormick’s for putting this deal together and making it happen for my 40th birthday present..

You Guys Rock!!!

We just wanted to say that our experience buying car that was on consignment was easy, and stress free. It was one of the most pleasurable, and honest transactions we have had. Please thank Dave for us. We have recommended your services to a neighbor who wishes to sell her classic car. Thanks, Frank G.



Overall we are very happy with the vehicle and I would like to also mention my thorough satisfaction with McCormick. The purchase was an enjoyable and effortless experience of which you were a principle part. I appreciate your up front insight and helpfulness as this was instrumental in making this deal happen as easily as it did. I will certainly look toward McCormick when considering future purchases or sales.

"Good Day, David; (our year-round salesman) Thank you so very much for all your good work & efforts to sell my car. You did a superb job and I am most appreciative. Be assured that any car I have to sell in the future will quickly find it's way to your office. Has been a pleasure to know you."

- Regards, Roy


"I just wanted to thank you and everyone involved for all you did to help our little family sell their Cadillac. For anyone witnessing McCormick's Car Auction, they will attest to the fact it is a perfectly run machine. Taking a closer look, it is a caring family that puts its all into each and every car that comes across the block. The particular effort and patience you showed for my daughter Amanda was nothing short of astounding. You turned a very bittersweet moment into a confidence building cause for celebration and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

- See you next Auction, Spencer, Amanda, and Sally


"We have been purchasing fine automobiles at the Keith McCormick's Car auction in Palm Springs, for the last ten years. Every year the auction is something that we highly anticipate and we always look forward to see the large quantity of vehicles the auction has to offer. Their professionalism and prompt service is always unfaltering. We purchase our cars to ship overseas and every time there's a lot of paperwork involved. Documentation and titles of vehicles are always present at time of the auction which expedites the process to ship overseas. Doing business with the McCormick Family is an excellent experience and the ambiance in Palm Springs is the best every year!"

- Henry Janssens for Henton Enterprises Inc. Los Angeles, Ca

"When my wife and I decided to part with our 1971 Chevelle SS convertible and 1960 Corvette in 2006 we thought long and hard about how to sell our cars and eventually we decided to go the auction route. We had attended a few auctions in the past including McCormicks (we're in the car show every year) and Kruse and even though Kruse was happening right in our hometown of Las Vegas on the exact same weekend we decided to haul both cars to Palm Springs instead. We always had more fun at McCormick's and got a much better vibe from you and your staff. From the time Jason greeted me personally to the time our 1971 Chevelle SS convertible blew well past my reserve we knew we made the right call. In the end the Chevelle sold for $63,000 (I was hoping for $55,000) and the 1960 Corvette went for $42,000 (I was hoping for $40,000). The service and all the help available for a couple of nervous first time sellers was first rate. We were well taken care of, all questions were answered and above all we had a great time! Here's to many more years of car shows and good times in Palm Springs each November and February."

- Sincerely, Douglas and Natasha Shaffer

"McCormick's auction did a fantastic job selling my 1968 Chevy Camaro Convertible in their February 2008 sale. My car came on the podium within 5 minutes of the time they quoted me and I got over my reserve price. Thanks Guys."

- James Demuth, Scottsdale Az.

"We have been dealing with the Palm Springs Exotic Car Auction company for over 10 years. We have bought and sold many vehicles with them over the years. The auction is proffessionally run by knowledgeable staff and we always receive our sale proceeds in a timely manner. We love the McCormick's Classic Car Auction and will continue to do business with them."

- Jim & Michelle Flareghty, Denver, Co.

"I have watched the McCormick's Palm Springs auction tripple in size since I started selling through them over the last 20 years. I always get good money for my cars, expecially my 1961 Mercedes 190 SL that went way over my reserve price and dealing with a family run business I never have to worry about getting my money."

- David Francis, Los Angeles Ca.

"Just a small note to tell you how much I enjoy the auctions, those weekends are like Christmas day for me. I love selling and purchasing from your auction house, and really enjoy everyone I come in contact with. Say hello to the gang. I wish there could be more of them." Regards, Jeff, Palm Springs, Ca G'Day Rudy, Just a short note to let you know that the Packard arrived today. It was a long time coming as it didn't come direct and we were starting to wonder where it had got to. Anyway it is now here and with a few jobs to tidy it up a bit it will be on the road. Rudy it was a pleasure meeting you and thanks for your help. We may in the future come back to the USA and do some more business again. Thanks Again."

- James Andrews. Salt Ash. Australia.

"I am a Candain collector with a large collection who is presently looking for a large 1930-1935 four door sedan. There was such a car at the Palm Springs Exotic Car Auction in November 2007. I had never been to a Palm Springs auction before. I was very surprised at how well treated I was by everyone connected to the auction, right from the owners on down to the registration clerks and on-site bank representative. Everyone very patiently bent over backwards to accomdate any of my requests. Your buyer's fee is half that of Barrett-Jackson. There is short term fenced storage available until the vehicle can be picked up by transport truck. While I didn't bid high enough to get the car I had come for, all my experiences with Palm Springs Exotic Car Auctions were very positive. Thanks for being so accommodating! "

- Yours Truly, Jim Zinkhan Regina, Sask.
