Vintage, Classic, Car & Everyday Driver Appraisal Experience

Since 1973, I have appraised or valued for insurance purposes, pre-purchase, judging, diminished value, estates, museums, probate, and financing, all type cars. Since 1987, I have practiced the discipline of automobile appraisal on a full time basis. I have traveled extensively in pursuit of gaining knowledge of the collector car market. I attend, or document findings of those who do, most major car auctions and record all sales prices and conditions of the cars sold. I maintain an extensive library relating to car history and prices. I maintain a computerized projection of collector car prices which is continuously updated. All appraisals written in accordance with USPAP.
