Hope everyone survived the holidays as we are now truly into 2019!
The past months have seen me value some very top end Mopars a radical street/strip Duster and a well restored 1968 Plymouth GTX – hopefully these cars will show at the MoparEuroNats this year.
Barn finds are still plentiful in the States with another Superbird being pulled out of a junk infested garage, looks like it was custom painted at some time as the blue paint and lack of vinyl roof are not original. Well that’s the Yin-and-Yang front, however, a severely burnt 1973 Charger that I came across looks a total disaster – win some-loose some.

It’s that time of year again when we prepare our muscle cars for the Mopar Euronationals on Friday 28 July, Saturday 29 July and Sunday 30 July.
Come a week Friday, there will be a mass descent of Dodges, Plymouths, Chyslers and other fine american cars making the pilgrimage to Santa Pod for the most anticipated car show of the year among us petrol heads.
Spring is just around the corner with the car show season nearly upon us, the NSRA swap meet in Essex on Sunday 5th March and Wheels Day on Good Friday Easter 14th April; I hope to be at both events. The Mopar show is at Brooklands in May, so not long to go for that one.

Over Christmas, one of our good friend’s totaled his fresh import 1972 Rallye Challenger 340, 4-speed – he survived with a bit of bruising but the car was a right-off.
He bought the challenger over from the states in September 2016. When the accident happened, he didn’t know the real value of the car so I offered my services, should he need them.
With the icy roads and difficult driving conditions which winter brings, we’re spreading the word of the importance of having an agreed value on your car with your insurer. Having an agreed valuation from an independent valuations company means that you know how much your american car is really worth, not just the market value.
Please do not hesitate to contact us to book your car in for a tailored valuation and appraisal service.
Welcome to the January 2017 blog covering the close of last year and the beginning of another twelve muscle car months.

Summer is here (at last!) and boy have I been busy with car valuations and shows.
The 23rd Mopar EuroNats, held at Santa Pod Raceway, proved to be a very busy event with many interesting american cars on show. Two fabulous Winged cars turned up; a white Hemi Daytona on the Saturday and a V code 440+6 Superbird. The latter won three trophies, including Best in Show.

Not long to go until the event of the Season; Mopar EuroNats, Santa Pod Raceway, England.
