Get To Know Your Vehicle

Replace Uncertainty With Original Source Documentation

Provenance as an Attribute of Value

As values increase, so does the desire for certainty of authenticity and lineage. Does your car have gaps in its history? Restoring and unsure about details? Contemplating a purchase and in need of verifiable facts? Research is an investment that can help avoid costly mistakes and often increase value by virtue of erasing doubt and affirming integrity.

Factory build sheets, historic photographs, ownership history, correspondence, and restoration documentation are some of the exceptional supporting material I’ve brought to light with a proven formula of combining genealogy and global resources leaves no stone unturned.

Persuasive Presentations

Will your car be displayed at a concours? Offered for sale? Do you simply want an elegant reference to share with friends?

Imagine a bespoke presentation that articulates your car’s story in the most persuasive and engaging way possible. Having a comprehensive history file is an important step, but transforming the contents into a narrative for a particular audience will further enhance the reception and standing of your car.
