Welcome to Vintage Motors of Lyons

Front of the shop in Lyons

We sell, consign, purchase, and locate cars of interest for folks that appreciate them. We  always carry an eclectic selection of classics. Whether you are wanting that perfect  Sunday driver, a project car, or a higher end investment, we probably have a car that you will enjoy!

I have been passionate about cars since I was a kid in the '50's and '60's and bought my first car while in high school, which was a then 10 year old 1958 MGA. Since then I have enjoyed and nurtured many classics, both foreign and domestic. I decided to follow and share my passion for cars by creating a welcoming marketplace to not only sell cars, but open a place for everyone to come in and check out and talk cars, look at car books, magazines, posters, artwork, etc..

Our shop was originally built as a Texaco gas station in the 1940's and is conveniently located at the junction of the two highways leading to the Rocky Mountains just north west of Boulder. You won't miss us at the west end of Main Street.  Lyons is a fun, small town offering nationally known live music festivals and brewpub; shops and great fly fishing, kayaking, tubing, hiking, and mountain biking.  The South St. Vrain Canyon is among many great driving roads in the area.

The best part of this business has been all of the great people we meet. Thanks for visiting our site and I hope to meet you whenever you are in the area.

-- George Raffensperger

" I recently consigned my 1964 Porsche 356C to George with Vintage Motors and highly recommend him. Please contact me as to further

Here is a copy of a note we received from the buyer of this car on 11/18/10: “The most amazing thing about I how I acquired my 1959 Bentley S1 Saloon was that it was completely by happenstance. My husband and I were rounding the corner in Lyons, CO to head up to Rocky Mtn Nat’l Park when I spied the front grille of what was either a vintage Rolls or Bentley peeking from behind a glass garage door. I grabbed my husband’s arm and screamed “stop, stop!” He didn’t. But I made him go with me to the shop the very next day. That I now have two friends in addition to the wonderful motor vehicle, is frosting on the cake. I have have never met the previous owner, “Punch”, but have communicated with him so often about my very special auto that I count him as a friend. I have, of course, met George, the proprietor of Vintage Motors Lyons. He is the most gracious, considerate, kindly and knowledgeable car salesman I’ve ever dealt with. And because buying and selling cars is a favorite pastime of mine, I’ve met a lot”. Barb Davis

George sincerely wishes to know everything possible about the vehicle so that he can market it in the best way possible. This helps him, the seller, and the buyer. George was able to locate a buyer for my rather obscure Polski Fiat in Chicago of all places! By knowing the history of the car he was able to pass that information to the buyer and help them make a more informed decision to purchase the car. George took all of the spares and passed them along to the new owner. He also went out of his way to find and purchase original sales brochures and repair manuals (in English!!) for the car to make the sale happen.

I highly recommend George and Vintage Motors of Lyons, CO for selling any collectible vehicle, so much so that I have consigned another with them.” John B., Boulder

He was more than happy to take the time and make every effort to ensure that I was very pleased with my decision and even taking me on extended drives to be sure that I could experience all of the joys of having a vintage sports car in my stable. I highly recommend George and Vintage Motors to anyone looking for that “special” type vehicle. Happy Motoring. Floyd Wright, Colorado Springs, CO.

This morning I drove down to Raleigh to join in the Triangle British Car Day event that our MG club sponsors each year. It was a picture-perfect day weather-wise,and I had a great time meeting and talking with other Brit car aficionados, admiring their cars and just hanging out. The rest of the day I spent just driving around and enjoying the “B”. The car continues to run really well. I especially enjoyed a short trip through the countryside this evening, and even found some good “sports car roads” I hadn’t known about before. It was a perfect “Top Down Day”.

None of this enjoyment would have been possible without the inspiration and guidance you provided in finding the “right car” for me. So, many THANKS to you and Vintage Motors! I look forward to many more days like this one.” Tim R.

I had owned this car for over 20 years and wanted to entrust it only to a professional. George objectively determined the mechanical and cosmetic condition of the car and then provided me with market research to support the realistic price range of what I could expect to receive. He also did a great job of writing the ‘personal story and history’ of my car including a detailed description, both in general to the model and marque, and also specific to my car. He presented the car very well at his showroom, in addition through selected media. Through his efforts he helped me to get top price for my car. He also handled all the cosmetic work, having new period correct tires put on the car, and all the title work and transfer documents. I was left with only having to cash the check! I highly recommend George and Vintage Motors. Please call me as to further details of my experience with George and Vintage Motors. Thank You,” Bud Leonard 303-440-9147

But, he sells what you want and does it in a way that makes the entire experience fun, friendly and straightforward. Recently my wife needed a 60th birthday present. Vintage Motors had a ’67 Porsche 912, a type of old car I felt we ought to have. So did she. George arranged test drives (including putting in a new battery and starter without complaint or excuse). He also took care of a pre-purchase inspection and provided answers to all my questions and concerns. He was a delightful gentleman (still is) to work with and made the transaction as friendly, pleasant, and honest as possible. Buying a vintage car should be fun and it certainly was with George doing everything possible to make the deal go smoothly. I believe he is a true “old car” guy who presents his cars with honesty and enthusiasm making the car buying experience not only stress-less but quite enjoyable. We recommend Vintage Motors of Lyons highly.” Fred & Pat D.

Here is a copy of a note we received from the consignor of this car on 10/31/11: “I went to Vintage Motors because I was unsuccessful trying to sell my 1986 Porsche 944 using Craig’s List and signs. An acquaintance told me that George Raffensperger, the owner of Vintage Motors in Lyons, Colorado, sold cars on consignment. I contacted George , and he agreed to sell the car for me. He did tell me that there was not a strong demand for this particular model series. He priced the car based upon market research that he compiled and shared with me, which was the same price I had been trying to sell the car for. I was not optimistic that it would sell. About four weeks later to my surprise, I received a call from him saying that he had a buyer for the car. The price was better than I expected. George handled all the details of the transaction, so for me the whole process was totally hassle free. Based on this experience, I strongly recommend Vintage Motors if you have a “vintage” car to sell. Please feel free to telephone me at 303-440-4970 if you would like more information.” Mike Sullivan

This was a very nice Boxster; not vintage (yet) but too nice to pass up. Car was owned by a couple in Lyons and we sold it to the couple pictured above who also live in Lyons. We sold another Porsche for them previously, located a car for them that they still have, and now will be selling another car for them. All are great car folks; thank you for the repeat business!

Here is a copy of a note we received from the consignor of this car on 1/26/11: “I highly recommend Vintage Motors of Lyons to anyone interested in buying or selling a car. I consigned my car to sell, and George helped to get it into immaculate shape, priced it correctly, marketed it effectively and sold it for me, even though it was winter and a slow time of year close to the holidays. I really appreciate the time and care George takes in researching cars and their history, as well as their stories. George Raffensperger is a true professional in his business dealings and is a car lover to boot!” Steve Clymer

Here is a note we received from the buyer of this truck on on 12/12/11: “The Pinz is awesome. I love every inch of it. Its truly in great shape…I appreciated your help and the experience was great. When dealing with eclectic cars, you always want to deal with a “car guy”. That said, I definitely respect and appreciate your love of old cars. Thank you for a great buying experience; look forward to seeing you next time I’m in the area.” Tyler Purvine

Our only problem is that my family enjoys the car so much that we don’t want to share it. George and his son, Taylor, are great people, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience with them. Buying this car is the smartest thing I’ve done in years. Thanks again!!! Bill G.

Here is a copy of a note we received from the buyer of this car on 8/30/13: “As a novice to vintage cars I was looking for some help in finding the right car to fit my taste and budget. I stopped in at Vintage Motors a couple times to look at their cars and after meeting George and experiencing his knowledge, professionalism and passion for classic cars I quickly realized he would be a great resource to help me find just the right one. I was not disappointed. George located, evaluated and assisted me with the purchase of a beautiful 1974 TR6. My entire experience with George and Vintage Motors was an enjoyable one and I’ll be back to see him as often as I can” TG

Bill with Car

Here is a copy of a note we received from the buyer of this 67 Bug on 1/27/14: ” Anyone who has done business with George Raffensperger will likely agree that he is the ultimate business professional. I stopped by Vintage Motors simply on an urge to see what was on the lot and within 45 minutes after meeting George, I knew I wanted to buy a car from him. His knowledge of vintage autos is phenomenal. This is honestly the first car purchase I’ve ever made where I felt that the asking price was fair and I did not feel the need to negotiate. I would not hesitate to recommend Vintage Motors to anyone interested in working with a dealership based on principles of integrity and honesty. George went above and beyond to have the car checked over before delivering it to me. I am having an absolute blast going back to my childhood of many years ago driving a car I drove in my youth. The car was fun to drive home; many thumbs ups to even a passenger in a passing car frantically waving her arms like she could not believe what she was seeing (!?!). Thank You so much.” For me personally, I will never forget the look on Bill’s grand daughters faces when they saw the Bug and he told them he just bought it – priceless! (and of course they had to ride from Lyons to the Springs with grand dad in “their slugbug Herbie”).
