CONDITION OF CARS California is a dry state, so rust is not usually a problem with cars. However when buying thirty or forty year old vehicles, do expect to see some minor surface corrosion. We sell cars in every condition, from unrestored to perfect condition. However, when buying less expensive cars, please bear in mind the following: There is no annual safety inspection in California, so especially if you are in Europe, where there are stringent safety standards, please expect to have to spend some money on reconditioning (suspension, brakes etc.). Obviously if we are aware of a problem with a car we will advise you in advance.
PAYMENT for cars can be made in several ways. Firstly, if you are planning to visit us you may wish to bring travelers checks or cash with you (U.S.dollars!) We can also accept smaller payments on Visa and Mastercard. When buying a car over the telephone, our customers usually wire transfer funds to our bank.

SHIPPING is available to any destination worldwide through a well-respected shipping company. In most circumstances the cars are packed into containers and secured in wooden frames to minimize the possibility of damage. The cost of shipping an average sized car to Europe or UK is $1500. This price includes all costs from our showroom to the port of Antwerp. There is also optional insurance available at a cost of 1.5% of the value of the car. All shipping and insurance costs are usually paid on arrival of the car. The typical journey time from Los Angeles to most European destinations is five weeks, including time for packing, loading and unloading.
