What countries (besides the US) are interested in American Muscle/Classic cars (such as 1960's,70's, and 80's Chevy Camaro, Chevelle, Mustang, Pontiac, Cadillac...etc)?

I need some factual information on this topic. I want to find a private buyer or car dealer that would be interested in purchasing such cars. So any information pointing me in a direction of some country that would appreciate the historical american muscle cars would be a great help!

In many countries, like the classics. In England, a lot of fans, but in Russia they also have. For example, company A & A Motors or Chrysler Concern delivers and conducts auctions in Russia. In Moscow, Novosibirsk and St. Petersburg each year hosts exhibitions and auto shows, where you meet multipliers collectors.

Yes, there will be collectors in any country. For some reason, to me it seems that the Netherlands have a higher number of old American cars compared to other European countries I've been to, including muscle cars. Might be skewed perception though. All Chevrolet distributors sell the new Camaro, though in lower quantities than the Cruze or the small hatches (former Daewoo cars).

80s? Really? Cars from the 60-70s are popular in Norway and Sweden.

As others stated, Sweden has a demand for American muscle cars. I have seen more of those cars driving around there than here in the US on any given day. During a special event, like high school graduation, it seems everyone and their brother has an American muscle car.

There is also a demand for new muscle cars (what ever you want to call them) as well, especially the high end mustangs.

To be fair, the 80's were a dark age for sports cars all over the world. Heck, even Porsche pulled off the 944...
