Over the past 30 years, both in Europe and in the USA, Joe has personally owned many classic cars including 5 Lamborghini Miura SVs (including the ex-Shah of Iran SV and the USA prototype SV), 11 Lamborghini Countachs (every factory variant from LP400 to 25th Anniversario included), a Diablo SE30, a Ferrari 288 GTO, 3 Ferrari F40s, 3 Porsche 930 3.0 Turbo Carreras (including a USA prototype), and a one-off Paint To Sample Porsche GT3 RS.
His commitment and research in several time consuming nut-and-bolt restorations has brought him the knowledge and experience that are invaluable to those seeking his expertise. His standards are high, and his straightforward, no-nonsense approach to life is reflected in his business savvy and style.
In 2000, Joe organized the first-ever Miura Reunion in celebration of the car’s 35th anniversary, celebrated during the famed Monterey weekend at The Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley, California. 31 Miuras attended, which is the largest gathering of Miura’s to date. This special event is considered to have been an eye opener and sparked a renewed interest in what many consider the ‘original supercar’.
In 2009, Joe Sackey organized the Ferrari 288 GTO 25th Anniversary Reunion that was held in August in Monterey, California. The 15 participants set a world-record for the most 288 GTO’s gathered worldwide to date.
He maintains private registries of the models that he specializes in. He has a keen eye for originality, is extremely knowledgeable on relevant historical information on all of the cars he represents, and has every finger on the pulse of the current marketplace. Please see his Testimonials.
In 2015 Joe has been joined in the business by his UCLA-graduate son Sterling Sackey who has already established his own automotive interests (SW2 Heritage Cars & SW2 Tuning) and he comes on-board as an asset to enhance our operation and help serve our clients interests better.
Joe’s business is based in Orange County, California, where he lives with his wife, Margaret and their children in Laguna Niguel.
