Welcome

                 INTRODUCTION
The electronic age is here in the old car, collector car, and cruiser world. More and more folks are turning to the internet to purchase their new toys from as far away as acro​ss the country. And more and more folks are finding that what looked good on the screen in front of them and the description do not match what is delivered to them after the sale.
The result can be the loss of thousands of dollars and undo aggravation trying to right a wrong. One way to insure that this does not happen on your purchase is to get eyes on the ground to evaluate the vehicle before signing on the dotted line. This, when using our service, will put in your hands a full check list of the vehicle and up to 20 clear color photo’s.
We can either send this overnight delivery or send it via e mail right to your computer. This is the next best thing to your being right beside the car of your dreams, and prevent the car of your dreams from becoming your worst night mare.
The cost of the service is only $249.95 plus travel expenses, and should not be considered a cost but a form of due diligence. We have over 60 years of collective automotive experience of buying selling, repairing, writing about and enjoying old and custom cars.   We are waiting to serve you and your needs. My home territory is south west Florida and anything that is within 200 driving miles. However I am available for extended travel at a negotiated fee.

Previous clients comments:


Thanks for the report Brad. THAT is why you do a pre-sale inspection. Too many issues - the brakes, tires and rust alone = too much $$$.

You saved me from buying a big basket of trouble. Great Service.

Wish I knew about your service before I bought sight unseen this big hunk of junk. I have spent close to $40,000 on what will be a $20,000 car.
