We try to giveaccurate descriptions of the cars we’re selling, ut we’re enthusiasts, ot experts, nd we encourage and are happy to help facilitate personal or professional inspections. But please do sobeforebidding, s the alternative harms our ability to make sales to other interested parties who have done their proper due diligence before bidding.
