We try very hard to provide quality vehicles that are fairly priced. We inspect them for safety and disclose any defects we discover.
However, all of our vehicles are sold as-is, no warranty is offered and no warranty is implied.
We describe our vehicles as accurately as possible. Multiple photos are provided and we are willing to photograph specific areas upon request.
We will gladly describe a vehicle verbally and will do our best to answer specific questions.
Our vehicles are available for inspection. An independent inspector or appraiser is welcome. We encourage our prospective customers to personally inspect the vehicle they are interested in.
Due to the age of most vehicles we offer, we do not encourage our customers to drive them home.
We recommend getting to know your new vehicle before taking the risk of driver error, breakdown or accident. We are happy to assist with transportation arrangements.
We do not offer refunds. All sales are final. Should you decide the vehicle you purchased does not suit you, we may consider offering you the purchase price as a trade-in towards another vehicle we have for sale. Our customers are world-wide. Many have purchased more than one vehicle from us. We try very hard to offer fairly priced vehicles and to provide you with full disclosure.

|It pays to start with a solid car. The Colorado man that restored this car in the early 90's began with a perfectly solid Texas car with a blown engine. It had been off the road for many years and was very complete.
He performed a very comprehensive body-on restoration. Nary a part was left unimproved. We have recipts and notes to support the effort and expense that went into making this car so nice.
The engine was replaced by a rebuilt 324 from the same year. It was equipped with a rebuilt and correct Rochester 4GC carburetor. The radiator was boiled and repaired. The exhaust manifolds were planed for a complete new system installed.
The front end was completely rebuilt and aligned. The braking system was overhauled. The suspension was replaced. Just a few years ago, the suspension was lowered two inches and new Coker radial wide whites were installed.
The interior was gutted, the glass and rubber seals removed, all trim taken off and the sheetmetal was stripped and repaired. A complete color change, both interior and exterior was performed. The choices were Amethyst and Silver. The stainless was straightened and polished, the chrome was replated, the glass replaced and new rubber seals were istalled. All window regulators and door components were refurbished. New lenses, bulbs and fixtures were installed.

|The interior was done to a style very similar to original. The choice of material was for durability. The colors compliment the exterior perfectly.
This car was judged by the Oldsmobile Club of America and scored 971 out of 1000. It is just stunning. The color combination, wonderful trim and gorgeous Fiesta hubcaps provide an eye-catching appearance.
Some twenty years have passed since the restoration. The owner moved to Tennessee. Eventually the car was sold and has changed hands a few times since. Unfortunately, it has hardly been used. Since 2001 it has only been driven 400 miles.
But that is also a good thing! Since the restoration, the mileage is only a total of 47--. This car looks lovely and is certainly show worthy.
It starts and drives wonderfully. These Oldsmobiles are very capable on todays roads and will perform nicely at freeway speeds. All features function properly, in fact, they function wonderfully.
Lots of money was invested to restore this car. I know for a fact that money has been lost more than once. But now it is finally at a fair value for the quality it offers.
Ron began with a wonderful car. He went out of his way to make it better than new. It has been well cared for since and has stood the test of time remarkably. It is a remarkable Oldsmobile.
