About Us


I’m Mike Patak, owner of Mike’s Classic Cars. After 32 years of working in, and then owning one of the largest pork ham processing plants in the country, I know that quality sells itself. Whether we are talking about the meat business or the classic car business, people expect a superior product whether it’s a full restoration or service.

I have been an avid car collector for over 40 years and am proud that many of my cars are considered “the best of the best.” My knowledge of Ford, Mustangs and Shelby’s started in the mid 70’s when I worked at a Ford dealership in Crete, NE. I have always been a “Ford Guy” but over the years I have also come to appreciate many other makes and models

In January 2004 I sold my ownership in the pork plant in Omaha, NE and decided to fulfill a lifelong dream of owning a dealership with an emphasis on 60’s and 70’s muscle cars, specializing in sales, service and  restorations. I opened Mike’s Classic Cars in Blair, NE in March of 2004 and spent 10 years at that location. In August of 2013 we moved into an all inclusive facility in western Omaha (Elkhorn, NE). This centralized midwest location enables us to be very competitive in shipping autos anywhere in the continental United States as well as conveniently located to satisfy your service needs.
