TESTIMONIAL

  • ”Hi Brian. Thank-you very much for all the extreme effort you put into the preparation of my Mercedes and the final delivery. The car was exactly as described by yourself and very fairly priced considering the condition of the car. As a matter of interest, the appraisal c1958 Mercedes Benz 220Sompany refers to the car’s condition as “concourse`. I cannot remember a previous business transaction that impressed me more. My very best regards.”-Gordon
