Over time, many collectors benefit from a consultation of their collection or estate planning.
Intended to give you a thorough snapshot of a car to aide in purchasing decisions.
For when you have to find a very specific make, model or even a serial number.
My interest in collector cars started when I was five years old when my father’s purchased his first collector car. I grew up around old cars, car shows, car clubs and the like. I have enjoyed automobiles ever since.
For many years, I have been involved with various car clubs, tours and shows including 16 years on the committees of two Concours events. My duties have included, recruitment chair, judging, and various other duties. Recently, I have assisted with two large collections of over 80 cars, and several smaller collections, appraising, evaluating and assisting in marketing and preparation for sale.
My taste in cars is eclectic. From very early horseless carriages to survivor cars, to sports cars to resto-mods and many things in between... I like them all. I have owned cars of all shapes and sizes, numbering into the hundreds. What I have to offer is decades of experience in many phases of the auto hobby and related businesses. This experience has included buying, selling and marketing more cars than I like think about; this also includes all phases of body, restoration and mechanical work. Through the years, I have made many valuable contacts all over the country, so generally, if I don't know the answer, I know who to call.
Additionally, for the past 30 years, my work as a private investigator has taught me to be inquisitive, to strive to find the answer, to look at a situation from many different viewpoints, to pay attention to detail and be thorough. My many years as an investigator, has given me a little different slant on things and I have found that those traits serve me well in the auto arena. If you need help with your collection, need a car assessed or appraised, are in search of something specific, or just need some automotive advice, I would like to offer my help and experience.
My decades of experience in purchasing, restoring and inspecting cars has also provided me with many valuable contacts all over the country, so I usually know exactly where to look or who to ask when seeking an answer to a question.
