We only buy cars that we'd personally be interested in owning and generally only sell them to make room for other acquisitions.

We try to give accurate descriptions of the cars we're selling, ut we're enthusiasts, ot experts, nd we encourage and are happy to help facilitate personal or professional inspections. But please do so before bidding, s the alternative harms our ability to make sales to other interested parties who have done their proper due diligence before bidding.
