Vintage Car Connections was launched at the beginning of 2015 to collect, and post vintage race posters.

Having great passion for traveling, classic cars I thought it would also be a good idea to document some of my personal builds and hunting adventures. Classic cars tend to have an interesting story and sometimes even interesting owners.

As I began to meet people alike I began to share my stories and trade / sell my cars. What started as a hobby has since turned into a passionate business, and has been steadily growing. I receive requests from dealers, friends, and even strangers looking for that special car or project.

If you are looking for assistance in purchasing, inspecting or locating a classic vehicle in the United States you are in the right place.

Vehicle PPI (Pre-Purchase-Inspection) and Escrow Service


Once you have chosen a specific vehicle we will find it for you, contact the seller on your behalf, and inspect the vehicle locally or beyond. You will receive our detailed evaluation of the vehicle including photos, video, CARFAX (1981 and up).

We will negotiate the best possible purchase price and reserve the vehicle on your behalf.

After the vehicle has been purchased we will deliver the vehicle to the CFR Rinkens headquarters in Paramount, CA and pay for the Ocean Freight fees, and optional Insurance at which point you will receive a condition report, and check in photos. After receipt of the balance due (including our service fee) via wire transfer from your bank, Vintage car Connections will advise the shipping agent to release the cargo for loading. You will receive an update from CFR Rinkens once your cargo has departed from the Long Beach port with a copy of the Bill of Lading, and tracking information as well as an estimated time of arrival at the destination port including the contact information for the unloading agent. Transit time from port of Los Angeles up to Bremerhaven or Rotterdam is about 4 weeks on water (please allow an additional 10-14 days for loading and clearance).

The buyer is responsible for all destination fees such as unloading, terminal handling charges, customs clearance, licensing, and road legal adjustments (lights, tires, electrical, etc).

If you would like to read about some of our references please visit the testimonials page by clicking here.

We also offer thorough Vehicle Inspections for customers who would like to insure that what they are buying is not junk or mis-represented by the seller. In order to have a vehicle inspected please send an email to with a link to the vehicle you are interested in / contact information for the seller. We will contact the seller, and arrange an appointment to view the vehicle after the fee has been satisfied. An inspection is designed based on what your needs are, but each one comes with a set of basic attributes. When you request for a Vehicle Inspection you automatically get :

  • a. 100 Photos of the vehicle.
  • b. Detailed description of the vehicles condition.

Category 2 reaches out to further support your inspection needs anywhere from 50-100 miles from Los Angeles. ($500)

Category 3 Is undefined, which means that we will cater to your needs. Please specify exactly where the vehicle is, and we will revert back with a quote. Please see a few samples below :

Vehicle Inspection

I met up with Dean this morning up in Idlewyld, CA the mountain is 5000 feet in elevation.
Very cold place! The owner, and car are great. The owner of the car is in the entertainment business and has his own collection of cars. He has owned hundreds of cars through out his life because he has got “the sickness”.
We talked about all kinds of cars, and he not only knows his stuff but opens his wallet to make sure everything is right. This car is no stranger to an open check book policy with premium shops.
He told me that he spent $18,000 in paint alone. The car ran, and drive nice and tight. The suspension, and bushings are all tight and in good order the car sits on new tires. He had just done a tune up, and replacement of any old tubes, and hoses including bushings in the suspension with what he calls the Corvette “God”.
The paint job is very nice and clean, the bumpers are very shiny and apart from the windshield all the glass is original. He said that he had the replacement windshield date stamped to be period correct which cost $450 for just that! The interior is clean, and tidy. Everything works except for the clock. There are a few spots that I didn’t like on the paint.
The back left bracket that holds the bumper has a bubble / paint imperfection (see photo), the exhaust has a bit of overspray from the paint. Apart from that I did not find anything abnormal on the car.
He has very good documentation up to the original registration, and some other goodies.

Vehicle PPI (Pre-Purchase-Inspection)

I met up with Dan little bit earlier today to take a look at his Studebaker.
Great little car! Very, very original 2nd paint car that is more than presentable, although not perfect! The car is very solid, and apart from very minor surface rust here, and there I couldn’t find any corrosion. The paint is very nice, but around some various edges is not perfect. The rear passenger side has some strange discoloring from what looks to be like either older paint, or not perfectly cured paint. Not sure… I have checked the inner fender, and it doesn’t have any structural damage, or wrinkles that you would typically see if it was hit.
Therefore I don’t think the car was ever involved in an accident just paint issues. The interior, glass, and chrome is in great shape. The owner had mentioned some various things that are not perfect including the shock towers for the trunk, a cracked interior switch which he will include a replacement of, and the lighter that doesn’t work.
The car ran, and drove very nice. Drives, and brakes straight with extremely low wheel shake or vibration.
All the lights work perfect including the running light on top of the fenders. He has a VIN decoder, said that the car is traceable back to the original owner, has the original manual, some original black / white photos from back in the day.

Vehicle PPI (Pre-Purchase-Inspection) 

I met up with the seller Bruce, and he gave me the keys to the car for an hour so I drove to a school parking lot to take photos.
The interior was out of the car the first time I looked at it so I took photos of all the parts. Bruce asked me if he should put it back in, and I told him not to do it because I can take good photos of the floors.
The car runs, and drives good. It started up cold with no problem, and didn’t have any leaks / squeaks. The air blower works, and the heat works but the AC does not (All parts are there). The steering has some play (2 inches each direction), and is VERY tight someone must have tightened it to try and make the play go away.
The body of the car is actually very solid, the only questionable areas with primer are all metal except the driver side sill on the bottom. I took photos with my light magnet, and one photo shows the magnet on the ground which is the only place it did not stick.
There is no question that you will need to paint this car because the paint is cracking everywhere. However the body is very straight and I dont see signs of an accident.
The driver door did not close properly (see photo). All the seams are there in primer, and behind paint but thats good most people paint it, and sand it down. The interior will need to be put back together right. Everything is loose. The dash has crack (see photo). The chrome is not perfect, but presentable. All glass is good. The trunk is very solid.

1967 Ford Mustang Coupe

On offer is our recent “dessert” find a 1967 Ford Mustang A-Code Coupe.

This vehicle was originally bought in Hawthorne, California by the original owner who then moved to Bakersfield. She passed away in 1990 and the car sat out in the desert ever since. The original California black and yellow license plates, frames are still on the car.

The exterior of the car remains largely original with some spots showing primer fading. I would rate the current paint job a 5/10. It’s definitely got a cool patina look to it. The car is very straight, and apart from what you can see on the outer doors, one undercarriage spot is rust free.It has never been wrecked, or welded before. Although, it did have a bumper bender as you may have seen in the previous post.

Runs and drives ok, but has not seen many miles in a long time!
Interior is brand new, and super nice!

The car is currently sitting on 14″ Magnum 500 wheels with brand new Cooper Cobra Radial T/A raised white letter tires.

1968 Pontiac LeMans

1968 Pontiac Lemans in rare Verdoro Green Poly. w black interior. This car has lived in California its whole life. Its rust free, still retains its original California black license plates.

The paint job is in very good condition apart from a few rock chips on the hood / front fascia. The vinyl top is brand new, and it was just color sanded and polished by a professional detailing shop. The doors open / shut like a space ship. Nice, tight. Same with the hood, trunk (working courtesy light!). No rattles or squeaks. There are only 2 keys and (1 for the ignition, doors and the other for the trunk) as should be.

Engine and transmission have been rebuilt. Its a 350 V8 with an automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, disc brakes. Fires up very easy when cold or hot. Everything works. Even the air conditioning blows ice cold!! I’ve recently purchased a set of perfectly refinished Rally II wheels w period correct Firestone Wide Oval poly tires (Not cheap!). It rides perfect..! The suspension is tight. No play in the steering, good braking power comfortable right. Even down the rough roads. I had a 3″ dual exhaust installed recently with Flowmaster mufflers.

Interior is clean, tidy. Front and rear seats clean without much use or wear. Carpet is worn in just right. New windshield installed recently and all windows tinted to a “movie reel” standard.
