What is the difference between Show and a Show/Driver level?
The main difference is the time and attention to detail spent on the vehicle. Show level is a car that typically will not be driven, is kept in climate controlled storage and transported on a trailer to Concours events. Show/Driver level is catered more to the customer that is interested in showing and driving their vehicle.
What is the difference between Driver and Preservation level?
Driver level is a car that may be altered from the original mechanical specifications of the mark and Preservation level is a car that is kept as original as possible and will not be altered from the original mechanical, exterior and interior specifications of the mark.
Do we sell parts?
We will be opening a parts department in the near future. Please check the Parts section of our website frequently for updates. In the mean time, if you are having difficulty locating a specialty part, please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try our best to source the specialty part that you are looking for. We also recommend using Hemmings Motornews found at most local newsstands.
How do you document original miles?
Through certification of ownership, maintenance records, and paper trails. Without at least one of these items, it can be hard to reliably document mileage.
