Classic and vintage vehicles require a tremendous amount of attention. We focus on the quality of workmanship, the condition of the paint, body, panel alignment, undercarriage, frame, trunk, floor pan, rocker panels, welds and document any evidence of rust or collision damage. We also evaluate the performance of the engine, transmission, drivetrain, suspension, brakes and function test every switch, lever, and light possible. Cosmetics are just as vital and can be expensive to repair or replace; that’s why it’s important to us to scrutinize the interior, glass, lenses, convertible top (if applicable), chrome and bright work.

Exotic,  Modified and RV’s  require lots of attention. Exotics are not necessarily ‘stamped out’ like most production cars, most of these vehicles are ‘special ordered,’ every box checked — making them well optioned (and very expensive); that’s why option code verification is so important.  In addition to evaluating the paint, body, mechanical and structural soundness; we collect as much information as possible, such as ownership history, driving habits, maintenance, and service records. Modified cars are scrutinized by the attention to detail, workmanship, fit and finish, and the quality of the components used and receipts.
