About Distinto Cars & Classics
Distinto Cars & Classics was formed by the owner’s desire to pass on the enjoyment of classic cars, modern classic cars and distinguished vehicles to other appreciative owners after building and sourcing cars for his own collection.
Born in the West Midlands, and growing up in the 80’s and 90’s, owner M. Fiazan (Fizz) was captivated by the cars of those eras in particular, from 80’s turbocharged Group B rally monsters, to very special road and super cars of the 90’s. The addiction was set from a very young age.
Having gone into a successful career in real estate management, it enabled him to start at first as an enthusiast collector of models such as the legendary Ford Escort Rs Cosworth and Toyota Corolla GT AE86 (vehicles that are still owned and cherished today). It was not long however before the collection expanded and the silhouettes and uniqueness of the legendary marque that is Alfa Romeo captivated him and many 105 series and ‘GTA’ Alfas followed. It was these vehicles that lay the foundation for a future collection that would include models from marques such as Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche.
Whilst sourcing vehicles for his own collection, Fizz decided not to limit himself and his range of vehicles from a single market country, thus to source the best and most unique original, classic and modern vehicles, he visited many countries around the world to find the right examples. It was these trips to places such as the Far East and Japan that instilled a great appreciation for the Japanese market vehicles in particular, and the models which now have a highly regarded status as collectable and cherish-able.
He says: “I would dream of owning certain cars in certain specifications and never be able to find such examples, or in some cases, any models listed for sale. Sourcing vehicles from around the world in both left and right hand drive gave me the options that I would never otherwise have had.”
“When purchasing these exquisite cars, I never felt I had the required level of information with ease at times, as such my desire to provide similar vehicles with a level of service for enthusiasts who are both buying and selling akin to what I would expect as a collector became stronger.”
He added: “I consider it a privilege to meet and do business with people who love these vehicles as much as I do. So, whether you are buying or selling, or just browsing, I hope you enjoy this website.”
