Perhaps you're interested in a rare car, or a model in a specific color. Whether you're looking at a Make or a Model, look for the option to add an email alert to be notified as soon as a listing for the make or model that you are looking for is added.
There are a couple of ways to activate a car alert. If you're on a car make page, then if you click the Alert button on the grey bar near the top of the page, and you will receive alerts for all cars of that make that are listed. Likewise, if you have used the drop-down menu to look a particular model of a specific make, then you will receive alerts when listings of that model car have been added to the site.
If you've set the filter to search the car by color, the alert will be for the color you used to filter. So your alert can be for as broad as a type of car, or as specific as a particular color of a particular model.
The second way to add alerts is via the green Alerts button at the very bottom of each individual car listing. If for instance the car is a Ford Mustang, then you will receive an alert for each time a new Ford Mustang is listed for sale on Classic Car. You're able to have as many alerts as you wish, and they can be turned off at any time via a link in the alert email.
There may be times when you see a car listed that you like, but you're not right then able to contact the seller. Or you like to compile a "dream garage" for yourself. For reasons such as these, you're able to Shortlist a car, and have it pinned under the Your Shortlist section, located in the top right-hand corner of the site. Please note, that to have this feature work you will need to have logged on to the site.
There are two ways to add a car to your shortlist. The first, is the click the green Add To Shortlist bar at the top of each listed car. A second place to shortlist is the green Shortlist button, located at the bottom of each listing.
