If I could give David Young 6 stars, I would! Hands down the most knowledgeable, trustworthy and nicest businessman I have worked with in many years! We entrusted our storied 1960 Corvette that my Father purchased in 1960 new, and held on to it for over 63 years, until we turned it over to David at Precious Metals. David turned an emotional experience for all of our Family, into a pleasurable experience and was true to his word until the day he handed us over a check. If you are even CONSIDERING buying or selling your classic car, or any car for that matter, if David will take you on as a client - look no further in San Diego. Finally, I rarely IF EVER write a review and only do so if it is deserved...

“One day Dave” - Car was listed and sold the same day. Dave was knowledgeable about price and setting expectations. Very smooth and professional process. Highly recommend!

by George Edelmann

David did a fabulous job marketing and selling my Bronco, the process was fair and he handled everything for me. I couldn't be happier and will have him sell my next vehicle for sure. I highly recommend him.....

I purchased my wife a 1970 Baby Blue Cutlass Convertible from David. It was a great experience flying to San Diego to meet David and see the Car. It is the same color as my wife's first Cutlass which she purchased following College. She is going to look great zipping around Oxford, MS on Football and Baseball weekends. Cheers David, I hope to see you at a Car Show very soon.

by Jack and Sue Barrett

David took excellent care of us in the purchase of Jack's 1952 MG/c MKII. We appreciated his communications and clarity throughout the process, as well as his friendliness and integrity. Very helpful that David knew his product! Highly recommend David at Precious Metals Fine Motorcars. Ware enjoying zipping around town in our new little car!

by Eric Cole

I'm quite pleased with the information and help from David. I trusted him enough to purchase a car without personally inspecting it, and when I received it, all was as represented. A minor issue for me was that they had done a lot of work on the car in the past for which they didn't keep documentation. But I'm pleased with the final outcome, again, especially my experience with David.

by Gregg Flolo

I purchased a BMW 540 from David at Precious Metals, and couldn't be more pleased with the process. Having never purchased a car sight unseen and having it transported across the country, I was concerned about taking a leap of faith, but David was very honest about the condition of the car, and provided detailed service records and made the transaction very easy and painless. The shipping process went smoothly and the condition of the car on arrival was just as described . I wouldn't hesitate to buy from Precious Metals in the future. Highly recommended

by Julie Klapstein

We are thrilled with our 66 Mustang. Dave stored our car inside for a couple of months and we then had it shipped from California to Washington state. When it arrived it was even better than expected and just as advertised and my husband is a decades long car guy with lots of car shows under his belt. Dave worked with us on sending the numerous documents required and we are completely happy and satisfied with the entire process. Dave is trustworthy and we would never hesitate doing business with Precious Metals. Thank you PM!

Truck was exactly as described, which was extremely important as this vehicle was purchased sight unseen!

by Peter Lerman

I purchased a vintage car out-of-state from Precious Metals Fine Motor Cars of San Diego. I dealt directly with David who was professional, communicative, and honest about the condition of the vehicle. The transaction was easy and smooth and the car shipped here very quickly and arrived exactly as promised. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from Precious Metals in the future. Highly recommended!

by Shannon Beatrice Chanler

David at Precious Metals was a delight to work with. He was responsive, and provided all the information I needed to make my decisions.
- As a result, I have a ver cool car to enjoy!

by Alain Gazaui

David was incredibly honest, understanding and professional. He took me through the whole process, explained every step and addressed all my questions as soon as I had them. With the sale of my car in TWO days, it really shows not only that he knows his stuff but also that he has a strong network of like minded individuals looking for quality cars. I would recommend anyone looking for a reputable seller of fine cars to use Precious Metals.

by David Dodge

Outstanding service provided by David Young in the sale of my Triumph TR3. Very professional in every respect.

by Cellamotors Nostalgic Sports Cars

David “ the owner”, was very professional easy quick and was a pleasurable transaction. Great experience. I bought a high priced item unseen Arrived as advertised! Don’t hesitate to buy. He has some very unique Cool cars

by Michael Wilkins

I had a great experience working with David to sell my DMC Delorean Time Machine. I was simply too busy and felt like I lacked the network to find the right buyer for this special car. David made the entire process virtually effortless and was able to get the price I was hoping for in a reasonable timeframe. I'd gladly work with David again and will recommend him to my friends and family.

by R.T.

David really made me feel welcome, which is not what I found with other dealers or private parties. Maybe that’s not as important to other people but it is to me. He was honest about the car I purchased and made the whole thing seem less. I would recommend him to any fine gentleman or lady interested in a quality classic car. Thanks David!

by Anthony Desimone

Working with David was great! I got a great price on a great car and the process of getting there was a pleasure. I would definitely do business with him again! He is very responsive, polite, and honest.

Thank you David!

by Steve John

by Brian Barry

Clean and professional facility, car was as advertised - no surprises, very easy to do business with. Would recommend to anyone considering a purchase.

by David Pearce

Good consistent communication through the consignment process. Very good overall experience!

by Dan-Dan Bell

I must say that David Young is an exemplary sales man professional. I bought a Bentley Turbo and he answered any and every call without a minute later. I am a lover of cars, all the way from Uruguay. I have purchased over 40 cars from the US. Most other pages don't even bother to reply. Heads up on Precious Metals!

by David Fullington

Great service. Customer treated GREAT. Dave is a pleasure to work with

by Jason Rogers

David at Precious Metals is great to work with. David is very knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to sales and acquisitions of classic, exotic and muscle cars. He helped me sell my 1965 Backdraft Cobra and was very professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend Precious Metals!

by Bill Stoeckl

Had a small problem with car. They stood behind car and took care of it. Would purchase another vehicle from them.

by David Fullington

Great service. Customer treated GREAT. Dave is a pleasure to work with.

by Steve K

Wow, it took David less than 10 days to get my 1998 Corvette Indy Pace sold after I had it on consignment with a vette shop for over 9 months and I never received a serious offer.

I met David at the SD Auto Show and he impressed me as someone who is extremely knowledgeable on how to sell and buy unusual automobiles. David knows how to use all the multi-media sites along with his extensive list of contacts to get my car sold. He took the car to the beach for a photo shoot and created a video that showed how fun it is to drive a convertible vette along the coast on a sunny California day. A couple of days later David called me with a solid buyer in Northern California. He took care of all the paperwork and even did the auto transport himself to make sure the buyer received the type of car he promised. He really treats both sides of the deal with professionalism.

I highly recommend David and Precious Metals Fine Motor Cars of SD.

I am only beginning my relationship with David, but so far he has been great to do business with! His thorough appraisal process is evidence of David's vast industry knowledge and attention to detail. I look forward to listing my car and doing future business with a true pro in the classic car industry.

by Scott Kimbrough

Bought restored Pinto wagon from Precious Metals. Car was super nice. I swapped out power train and replaced with HIPO engine and tyranny. Very fun on curvy roads.

by Teresa Spena

Beautiful Motorcycle, very unique and looks like brand new. Great Service. Thanks David. Highly Recommended.

by Rishi - Toronto, Canada

Well. Plain and simple. I bought my car sight unseen. Why? David! He is as honest and trustworthy a person I have spoken to. I always feel that the truth is more important then the price. David made me aware of everything even stuff he didn’t need too. He is always willing to do extra. Go the extra mile. Honestly buying cars for 30 years, I can say, wow. He is the best. Thanks David. You made my dream car a reality. Your service is second to none!!!

by Jim Wiegand

I can't say enough about my transaction with David Young and this Co...he was as Professional, very helpful and in my opinion a true gentleman in every possible way...if I ever purchase another vehicle that I'm looking for and he has it in inventory, I'll be on the phone or computer with a Car deal I felt very comfortable and trusted in him, which means a lot these days!!...Thanks again David!!

by John Gillette

Great experience with Dave . i was interested in a 1972 Monte Carlo . i could not find with big block, buckets and other things i wanted. I called on the 1972 Pontiac Grand Prix Dave sent additional pictures and also videos of the car. He was honest about some issues with the car and some potential repairs that should be made. I decided to go forward, and he actually brought the car to me. I have made some upgrades and done general maintenance. The car is driving beautifully, and the power is incredible, love it . The best part of the transaction was the fair dealing and the complete honesty exhibited by this company .

by Ed Quinn

David, knows cars and people.He has helped me find and sell classic cars over the last 10 years. I recommend him highly.

by Rex N

That 3 star was posted inadvertently! Was looking around at your store on line and clicked when I should have clacked. Fixed it ;-) Thanks for letting me know.

by Keith Hagen

Precious Metals sold a 1958 Corvette for me. David did a great job. He's trust worthy, honest and responsive. All traits that are critical in these high dollar transactions.

by Brandon

Great experience. Assisted with finding a 3rd party inspection. Happy with service and delivery. Recommend and would buy again from Precious Metals.

by Paige Gulck

Easier than eBay - my Dad and I sold my 69' Malibu through PM. David was great - took photos of the car and shopped for a buyer. We got the price we wanted and the buyer got a beautifully restored car, all with David's help. I'm sure we'll be using David again in the future.

by Rob Polanis

David at Precious Metals I quickly realized I was dealing with an honest guy. Our transaction was timely and professional. I had no issues and the vehicle I received was as advertised. I look forward to working with Precious Metals again. Rob

I bought a 1985 Rolls Royce Corniche II from Precious Metals and David Young helped me a lot in having the car shipped to Spain. I thought I would have to go through a complicated procedure but everything was easy

by Thomas Amato

Purchased a 1965 Chevy Corvette convertible really enjoying car. The people at precious metals are very knowledgeable and I'm thoroughly enjoying my vehicle would recommend buying a vehicle from them. But as always, do your homework.

by Marc Goldman

David sold a Dodge Viper for me and the process was quick and easy. I would definitely use him in the future for anything exotic or rare to eliminate the wasted time dealing with flakes and lookie-loo's on forums and craigslist.

by Aram Baloyan

Great sales experience with David, he knows he's stuff.

by Manny Foranoce

For people buying specialty cars, you don't always have the luxury of buying from a local dealer. As a result, unless you can get to the dealer you don't always know what you're getting. One exception is Pecious Metals in San Diego. When you buy from PM, what you see and hear from them is what you get. I feel confident with them and would definitely buy again from them.

by Allen Gibson

I just purchased a 1969 Malibu from Precious Metals and this was my first time ever doing something like this. But Dave from Precious Metals really made the whole process extremely painless and easy to accomplish. From the very beginning Dave called back when he said he would he really when the extra mile by creating me a photo book of where the car came from until the end result which was truly beautiful. I would truly recommend Precious Metal to anyone who is looking for a real nice car you wont be disappointed at all.

Thanks Precious Metal for making my experience really awesome. Allen

by Tom Nehme

Bought a 1967 Chevelle and David helped me out. Very professional. I'm extremely happy with my purchase. I referred my brother who's looking to buy a classic Corvette and I will most likely buy from David again. David was kind enough to deliver the car from San Diego to the Los Angeles area. The showroom was clean and had some impressive cars. I'm now enjoying my new beautiful car thank you David.
