Andy Cohen, founder of Beverly Hills Motoring Accessories and car salesman to the rich and famous passed away unexpectedly October 26.

    Andy Cohen, founder of Beverly Hills Motoring Accessories and car salesman to the rich and famous passed away unexpectedly October 26.

    Cohen began his high-end accessories company in 1976 selling car covers and mats for luxury automobiles. Fine leather driving gloves along with Serengeti sunglasses were offered next to quality waxes and polish designed to bring an upscale clientele the finest products to make both car and customer look good. The company was sold in 1998 but has returned to the Cohen family with son, Kevin Cohen, reviving and updating the original concept.

    Cohen turned to selling exotic and luxury automobiles. His lists of clients run from the famous to just the merely rich. He had a wealth of knowledge on Ferraris and would often contact the FML to verify and share history on Ferraris he was brokering.

    Cohen was also involved in civic affairs in his Malibu hometown. With his contacts he could pull people together to help solve local problems.

    Even the massive California fires in 2018 respected Andy Cohen; they came close to, but stopped short of his Malibu house overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

    Andy Cohen was a class act; always a gentleman and he will be sorely missed. Cavallino and Pebble Beach will be a little sadder without his smiling face and whatever special Ferrari he is representing.

    I found a couple of quotes I felt exemplified the essence of Andy Cohen.

    Success: “You have to do what you love to do.”

    Best Automotive Advice: “Whenever you purchase a vintage car, spend more money and buy the best one you can.”

    Parting Advice: “Do what you love. Love your family and pay attention to them no matter how busy you are. Be happy and be positive.”

    Words to live by…

    He is survived by three children; sons Chad and Kevin and daughter Chaya.
