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 / rent 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).

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 :

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.

1981 Volkswagen Westfalia in Collectible Condition

1981 Volkswagen Westfalia in Collectible Condition with the rare, sought after automatic transmission with only 88500 original miles.
The car runs, drives perfect.

The engine purrs quietly without hesitation or smoke. It doesn’t eat, leak or smell like oil. A recent 1500 mile adventure can attest to the cars reliability right out of the box.

The steering, suspension is precise and true. We just threw on a new set of all-terrain Grabber’ tires that help get to the fun camping spots.

Exterior has been repainted in its original color. We had the car color sanded, polished. Apart from a paint chip here, there it looks perfect!

Interior very original in good condition with minimal wear.
There is no rust underneath, although there is a spot underneath the windshield that could potentially be investigated the size of a dime.
Most of the Vanagon Westy’s in the U.S have 150,000-300,000 miles on them and have had the motor rebuilt. Unfortunately the reproduction parts are not as good as the original. Therefore, an original car like this with under 100,000 miles with a rare transmission which immediately needs nothing and is in near perfect condition would fit into the top 5-10% condition. In our opinion is the perfect usable investment.

Comes with clean title, owners manual, jack, spare, misc. maintenance paperwork.
