We Saw a Need in the Market

Every major transaction is saddled with uncertainties. This is particularly true when purchasing a classic vehicle you hope to drive. In a market that is made up of inventory that can be many decades old, the uncertainties in the decision-making process are multiplied.

  • How do you test drive a car that's across the country?
  • Can you rely on an inspection provided by the seller's own mechanic?
  • What guarantee do you have that the vehicle actually exists and is for sale?
  • How do you make heads or tails of an inspection report if you're not a gearhead?
  • How do we keep the hobby alive by making the process less intimidating for first-time buyers?
