I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for
virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant
amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my
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
**These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a
particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car.

showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you
will be given a 1 year membership.
