About MintCar

When MintCar founder Erik D. Griffith left behind a 27-year career in commercial banking to move with his new family to the remote hills of southeast Europe, it never occurred to him that he’d live his days there walking through the automotive history of Eastern Europe.

A Terrible Idea

While vacationing in Lisbon, Portugal with his soon-to-be wife, Erik Griffith casually noted how many quirky, interesting classic cars were not only easily found, but still being driven on the streets of Europe. Two espressos and a decision to move to Europe permanently later, the idea for MintCar was born.
