With a deep-seated passion for traveling and classic cars, I realized that documenting my personal builds and hunting expeditions could be a great idea. Classic cars often come with fascinating stories and sometimes even more intriguing owners.

As I began to connect with like-minded people, I shared my experiences and even started to trade, sell, and rent out my cars. What began as a hobby soon transformed into a passionate business that has been steadily expanding. I now receive requests from dealers, friends, and even strangers looking for that one-of-a-kind car or project.

If you’re searching for guidance in purchasing, inspecting, or locating a classic vehicle in the United States, you’ve come to the right place.


After you have selected a specific vehicle, Vintage Car Connections will take care of the rest. We’ll contact the seller on your behalf and inspect the vehicle locally or even beyond. You’ll receive our detailed evaluation of the vehicle, complete with photos, videos, and a CARFAX report (for vehicles manufactured in 1981 or later).

We’ll also negotiate the best possible purchase price and reserve the vehicle on your behalf. Once the vehicle is purchased, we’ll deliver it to CFR Classic headquarters in Paramount, CA, pay for the ocean freight fees and optional insurance, and provide you with a condition report and check-in photos. After receiving 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’ll receive an update from CFR Classic once your cargo has departed from the Long Beach port, along with a copy of the Bill of Lading and tracking information, as well as an estimated time of arrival at the destination port and the contact information for the unloading agent. The transit time from the port of Los Angeles to Bremerhaven or Rotterdam is approximately 4 weeks on water (please allow an additional 10-14 days for loading and clearance).

Please note that 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).

In addition, we offer thorough vehicle inspections for customers who want to ensure that what they’re buying is not junk or misrepresented by the seller. To request a vehicle inspection, please send an email to vintagecarconnections@gmail.com with a link to the vehicle you’re interested in and contact information for the seller. We’ll contact the seller and arrange an appointment to view the vehicle after the fee has been satisfied. Each inspection is customized based on your needs, but all come with a set of basic attributes. When you request a vehicle inspection, you automatically get…

  • a. 100 Photos of the vehicle.
  • b. Detailed description of the vehicles condition.
  • c. Video(s) of the vehicle running / driving.

When requesting an inspection there are three different categories.

Category 1 is designed for local vehicles within 50 miles from Los Angeles. ($400)

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.

On offer today is a 1985 Volkswagen Westfalia Weekender Wolfsburg Edition in very nice condition with 122k miles on the ODO.

It is finished in Agate Brown Metallic on light beige Tartan upholstery.

This is a water-cooled version with an Automatic 3-speed transmission, 1.9 Litre engine rated at 83 Horsepower. It runs and drives absolutely perfect. Suspension feels brand new, steering completely direct. Needs immediately nothing.

Seating for 6, pop out picnic table. Backseat easily transforms into a bed and sleeps 2! Pop the top, climb upstairs to discover another fold-out bed that accommodates two additional people. Outside is an awning that folds out into a spot of shade to chill in front of the bus.

It has been extensively repaired and upkept really well! There are a ton of maintenance receipts ($28,300+ worth!)

Exterior is very straight, clean. A solid 8/10 Shows some signs of repaint, misc. chips, scratches here, there. No undercarriage rust. Does show some bubbling around rear bottom lines.

Super clean interior very well kept. Dash shows some sun exposure.

Pop-top Wolfsburg Edition Vanagon: There were many different Wolfsburg edition models available with a pop-top. For example, in 1984 there were Wolfsburg edition full campers with a higher trim level and two-tone paint job but were otherwise identical to a non-Wolfsburg full camper. In ’85, ’86, and ’87, a special edition called the Wolfsburg Weekender was offered in both 2WD and 4WD (Syncro). That model has a pop-top and upstairs bed, like all Westy full campers from ’80-’91, but no fridge, stove, sink, or cabinet assembly. Instead, the rear seat is full width to accommodate three adults (rather than the shorter seat in full campers that only accommodates two). Behind the driver’s seat, the Wolfsburg Weekender has a rear facing seat with storage underneath. These particular models also came factory-equipped with a 2nd battery system and an all-electric cooler that sat behind the passenger seat and was held down to the floor with two thumb screws. In 1990 and 1991, the Wolfsburg Weekender was replaced by the Multivan (MV) model.

On offer today is an excellent 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe in silver blue metallic with 88k miles on the ODO. This car has been off the road since 2007, and during that time it has been mechanically gone through, repainted in its original color.

Here is a list of what was done during the down time:

– Rebuilt Engine 30 over

– Rebuilt C4 transmission

– Aluminum roller rockers

– Schneider 264 D 480 L can

– Mild port on the heads

– Aluminum high flow water pump

– Ceramic coated Tri y headers

– Aluminum Flow master exhaust

– Edelbrock fuel pump

– Edelbrock Performer RPM intake

– Edelbrock 500 CFM carb with manual choke

– MSD ignition

– Mallory distributor

– Fuel tank

– Sending unit

– Stainless steel disc brake conversion

– Total Control tubular upper and lower control arms

– Total Control strut rods

– Polyurethane strut rod bushings

– Polyurethane front and rear sway bar bushings

– 620 lb front coil springs

– 4 1/2 leaf reverse Eye Performance leaf springs

– 1 1/8” front seats bar and rear seat bar

– American Racing 15 x 7 Torque Thrust D wheels

– Fiberglass Shelby style hood with hood pins (no wires)

It’s a C code chassis which means that it was originally produced from the factory as a V8. It lived in California all of its life, 20 of them sitting inside of a garage.

Aesthetically the car has very good lines, even for a Mustang. There are a few paint chips, small scratches but overall paint shows a strong 9/10. The body work shows no bulging or bubbles anywhere, which means there is no filler / Bondo. At this point the paint job is over 15+ years old and if there was an issue it would surface. The undercarriage is honest, clean and rust free. There is no welding evidence or previous repairs, undercoating. The glass and chrome is in good condition. She shuts right, and all the windows roll up / down, swivel easily. Front windshield has a few pits.

Interior remains largely original apart from the RPM gauge mounted directly to the top of the dash. The dash does have 1 crack and the windshield has a few chips although none directly obstructs the driving experience. The ProCar Rally front seats give very good lateral support. Very snug, seat belts are almost optional. Under the dash is a water temperature gauge as well as an oil pressure gauge. Original radio still present, however there is currently no antenna.

All in all this is a great vintage racer inspired pony that screams for a 5-speed transmission upgrade and turned into a Targa rally mobile. It’s solid, light, and reliable. It runs between 160-165 degrees, shows no oil leaking / dripping issues, needs immediately nothing.

In the last 50 miles it has had:

– New battery

– New BF Good ridge Radial T/A white letter tires

– Oil change

– Brake booster install

– Brake Bleed

– Alignment

– Misc. trim installed

– All suspension checked, lubed

Includes clean California title, car cover, spare, manual, original front seats.

A recent oil change, brake adjustment, brake bleed, brake booster addition and alignment make this Pony ready to go.
