It's one thing to spend a fortune building a car, it's another
thing to have it turn out right. Both are true on this car. It
looks and feels like a new car. Hundreds of pictures document the
restoration. It also has a pile of receipts and literature. There
shouldn't be any mysteries as to what was done, it is all
documented. This is an opportunity to get one that's "right".

professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure
your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do
a walk around video that explains the car's condition in
