1966 Dodge Coronet 500 "Good Morning Grayson, Just wanted to give you a quick update. I bought the Dodge! The paint did not look nearly as bad as I had imagined, the power steering made it very easy to drive & yes the brakes do require some pressure. Garrett said I could have the front brakes converted to disc brakes which might improve the braking situation. So I will be looking for a good mechanic to look at that & the overall car by the time it comes out of storage. It should be delivered next week & I am definitely looking forward to that! Thank you again for all of your input. When we actually saw the car in person, it felt like we were already familiar with it thanks to you. That auto mall is definitely impressive as well". Kate ~ NY

1958 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special Grayson, "Thank you so much for going to check out that 1958 Cadillac for me. Your review was great and really helped me come to a decision. I made an offer on the car and it was accepted. We are now arranging transportation to bring this beauty out to my home here in Portland - I really need to get my garage cleaned out now!!! I am so excited for this year's car show season as I'll finally be able to actively participate, instead of being just a spectator or a passenger. I am hoping to get my lady's '55 Coupe DeVille running soon and then we'll take a picture with her '55, my '58, and a friend's '60 - all dressed in black. I am so excited!!!!!!!! Thank you again..." Keith H. ~ OR
UPDATE: "I just wanted to take a minute to give you a quick update on the 1958 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special that you were so helpful in my purchase...This past Wednesday I went down to the DMV to get the car registered and ready to roll. And then on Saturday June 15 I took it out to the first car show. About mid-afternoon I was told that I could not go home. And then during the awards presentation they gave me the trophy for Best in Show.
Thank you so much for your help!"

Thank you and feel free to use me as a reference. Tony Arnold ~ Your California Client"

2009 Volvo XC70 T6 AWD "Hello Grayson, It occurred to me you might like to see how it went. Car is great and I really appreciate the confidence you gave us in purchasing it. The drive back was fast and uneventful - I'm pleasantly surprised at the T6. We leave Wednesday for a road trip to FL to pick up a puppy and visit Family and I have zero concern. It's a mile crusher! Thanks again and I look forward to a lot of future trips with the new member of the family! Thanks again!" James and Gabriela ~ TEXAS

1958 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible "Grayson helped me with a pre-purchase inspection on a '58 Corvette. It was important to me to have an expert look over the car, especially since I was buying it remotely. Grayson provided a very thorough inspection report, but also spent a lot of time before the inspection explaining what he looks for, and answered every question I had (which was a lot!). He followed up with a call after the inspection giving details on the few problems found and answering more of my questions. He went far beyond what I expected by providing a grade on the car, a rough appraisal, and looked up the replacement engine for me, as well as tracking down a previous auction of the car. I would recommend Grayson for several reasons: he knows his stuff, he's detailed, he's willing to take time with his customers, and it's clear he has a real passion or what he does. Thanks, Grayson!"

"Grayson, Thank you for your appraisal, it is clear and well laid out. I also like the fact it has come back positive. The overall time frame was outstanding. Should I end up securing the vette, I would like to follow up on the stainless steel door trim. Is it am item that needs replacing and if so would you have any recommendations. I will let you know how things progress, thank you again. Regards, Russell" ~ Australia
1965 Ford Mustang 2+2
"Grayson, She was delivered earlier today. Reliable did a great job. Thanks again for your help. Without you I would not have had the confidence to buy something without seeing it. My local mechanic will look at it towards the end of next week. I did drive it around the neighborhood and after a few minutes you get used to the drum brakes and feel transported back in time! It was a hit with the neighborhood boys walking home from the elementary school down the street. One boy asked, "Is that a muscle car?". I said, yes I guess it was the beginning of them. Have a great night. Matt" ~ TEXAS

1971 Jaguar XKE Series III 2+2
"Gray: The XKE (promptly dubbed “Kitty”) arrived last night and immediately drew an admiring crowd in the parking lot where it was dropped off! A photographer and car nut from one of the local papers did a 180 and pulled into the parking lot. He asked if sometime he could do a photo shoot of the car. I want to thank you for your efforts and help in making this purchase. She is everything you said and indeed drives beautifully. A little bit intimidating,… as this is probably the finest motorcar I have ever owned. I am determined to do her justice. I hope that you are doing well. Best Regards, DJ" ~ Connecticut
