Pulling into a car show what do you think's going to draw more attention: a Camaro, a Mustang or this car? It costs less than most the Camaros we are selling but it looks like it should be three times as much. Only 300 miles since the restoration was finished.
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 detail.
