Yesterday’s Auto was established in 1983 as a dealer in Classic, collectible, and special interest automobiles. Al Hagen, the founder and proprietor, is the fourth generation of his family to be in the automotive business. Al is a member of the Specialty Vehicle Dealers Association [SVDA], the Society of Automotive Historians, International Society of Appraisers, and the Better Business Bureau.
Yesterday ’s is located in Minneapolis at 28th and Lyndale South. Our three level, 15,000 square foot building was built in 1911 by the Eklund Brothers Bus Co. The Eklund bus was manufactured here until 1935. Eklund was the first supplier to Grey Hound. The building now houses our classic car showroom and is decorated with our collection of automotive dealership and gas station signs.
Since the beginning in ‘83, Yesterday’s has sold well over a thousand collector cars to customers throughout the states, Canada, Europe, Japan and the Middle East. These vehicles ranged from a 1915 Ford to a Plymouth Prowler. Our main interest and focus has been on American cars from the late twenties to the early seventies and European sports cars. Yesterday’s also provides an appraisal service. We list as our customers many collectors, private parties, lending institutions, attorneys, Internal Revenue Service, F.D.I.C., and the Federal Marshals Service.
