my trip to Napoli Classics



In July 2019, I was planning a trip from New Jersey to New Hampshire for a family party. I took the opportunity to divert the trip through Milford, Connecticut. This is the home of Napoli Classic Cars (Classic Cars and Muscle Cars For Sale | Lease a Classic Car). Members of the Solsticeforum.com website have known for several years that this dealer finds and resells Solstice Coupes. As I write this note, there are seven coupes in the showroom.

( from their website )
Napoli Motors was established in 1959 as a Pontiac dealer. In 1969, it was expanded to include Datsun (which would later become Nissan) and was further expanded in 1996 with the addition of the Napoli Indoor Auto Outlet, a used car dealership. The Indoor Auto Outlet is where Napoli Classic Cars was formed. It was originally only handled by Lenny Napoli as a side line to attract customers to the indoor showroom but wound out to be successful on its own.

The GPS took me to 241 Boston Post Rd, Milford, CT 06460. This is actually a Kia dealer storefront. As I entered the parking lot, a bright red Kia Stinger greeted me. But on the far side of the parking lot were several non-kia cars, including a red Solstice Coupe.






#107083 NA auto red/aggressive



A sales consultant named Jim greeted us and graciously allowed my family and me to walk through the 100 or so classic cars that were in a separate showroom in the back of the Kia dealership. Jim explained to me that the classic cars are sold via the internet. Many of the cars are sold overseas as well. I specifically asked Jim about the pricing. He said that the cars are sold for the asking price. Otherwise, the cars remain on display for the next potential customer to see. Jim also mentioned that the dealership has one mechanic dedicated to working on the cars in the classic car showroom.

A 1964 Pontiac Banshee was also in the showroom. This car is one-of-a-kind. It was on display at the National GTO convention in Philadelphia in 2018.
