  • Biography
    My name is Stuart Hershoff. I have been collecting cars for the past 44 years. In 2003, I got a job as marketing director & museum curator for Brandon Classics in Atlanta, GA & was in charge of running the museum which was located inside a large retail furniture store showroom. The furniture store closed it's doors in 2007 & I ended up buying the existing inventory & moved the location inside an old cotton mill 40 miles South to Griffin, GA. In 2010 my wife & I decided to semi retire & moved to beautiful St. Simons Island, GA located on the GA coast about 30 miles North of the Florida-GA line. I currently keep about a 20 car collection in Nashville, GA which is about 125 miles from where I live. I make the 2-1/2 hour trip bi-weekly to exercise my cars & every now & then I sell or add a new car to the collection. You can see my current collection @ www. brandoncollection.com

    Who Supplies Correct Carpet Kit For Reatta

    I just found a supplier called ACC (Auto Custom Carpets) that shows the front being available in a moulded set in cutpile. I think the factory used a different material then cutpile but it was hard to tell from the photo they showed on their website.

    Who Supplies Correct Carpet Kit For Reatta

    Do u know the name of the vendor Dave?
  3. Is there a vendor out there who can supply the correct material moulded carpet kit for the Reatta?I seem to remember seeing a post way back about a supplier. Maybe Barney Eaton knows. I got a really nice floor mat set from him many years ago.
  4. For all you Reatta Lovers out there including myself, here is my personal car for sale as shown on my collector car website. Click on the link below to see complete description & photos. It's a good one so if your in the market for a Reatta to enjoy this Summer, don't miss this one. https://www.brandoncollection.com/1990_Buick_Reatta_Saint Simons Island_GA_18981473.veh Engine runs smooth & quiet, transmission shifts flawlessly. Car has always been rust free & has most of it's original paint. The paint on the rear panel just below the tailight lens has begun peeling for some unknown reason, but rest of paint shows well. ABS light is on, AC needs to be charged, & power antenna is disconneted. Other than that, everything else in working order. I have the missing Reatta emblem to put back on the front passenger side alloy wheel center cap. I have not had the time to take care of those issues; therefore I have priced the car very reasonable @ just $5,500 when you take into consideration the fairly low miles it has & total overall condition. Car is reliable in it's present condition & I would not be afraid to drive it on any long distance trip today. Thanks for looking. PM me or call me @ 912-634-4949 if you have interest in purchasing. Car is located in beautiful St. Simons Island, GA (75 miles inbetween Jacksonville & Savannah on the coast of Georgia) Stuart A/K/A Reatta Vice St. Simons Island, GA 912-634-4949

  8. The 1949 Kaiser Virginian is now up & posted on this forum in a new post with multiple photos. Thanks Imperial62 for the suggestion. I see you like Reattas. My favorite American car from the late 80's & early 90's. Right now I am Reattaless. I've owned about a half dozen of them over the years. There was a nice looking '90 Select 60 on Ebay earlier this week that sold for $10,100. Looked good in the photos. The Select 60 is on my bucket list. They never really climbed up in value like I thought they would. Lot of collector car for not a lot of money that you can drive everyday if you wanted to. Stuart a/k/a Reatta Vice

    1950 Cadillac Coupe Barn Find.

    I was one of the first ones to call & the price it was offered for was so reasonable I knew it would be sold before I could get there to see for myself. Glad to know other forum members were not lazy & picked up the phone to call. Just because they don't put a price does not mean they want too much for something. As my old friend Woody always says, "If you don't go, you will never know".
  10. For all you orphan car lovers out there, especially the Kaiser Frazer guys, here's one for you. To see additional photos, please click on link below: 1949 Kaiser Virginian photos Below is the description posted to my company website: Very rare 1949 Kaiser Virginian 4-Dr. Hardtop-Exterior paint presented in Indian Ceramic (Salmon) / Black vinyl roof complemented by a Black leather interior.Features include:* 226 C.I. / 110 H.P. L-Head 6 cylinder engine* 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive* Genuine leather interior* Radio, clock, & heater* Fog lights* Vinyl top* Front & rear bumper guards* Front & rear seat fold down center armrests* Driver & passenger side spotlights* Wide White Wall Goodyear bias ply tires* Fender skirtsHere is another orphan car from our collection that you rarely see come up on the market for sale. Kaiser manufactured and marketed the first production hardtop they named the Virginian, a 4-dr. hardtop having a steel roof simulating a convertible permanantly welded to a production convertible body. Only 935 Virginians were believed to be built. The $3,000 list price in 1949 was quite an expensive production model for the day.The restoration shop that services our collection just went through the car & refurbished her with new paint, a new padded vinyl top, had the front & rear bumpers replated, did a complete brake overhaul, fuel system service, new 8 volt battery, complete new exhaust system replacement, & added a new set of Goodyear wide white wall bias ply tires, new carpet & engine bay detail. The premium leather seat interior shows beautiful & had been recently replaced by the previous owner.The current NADA Classic Car Guides values this car @ $17,400 in average retail condition & @ $34,100 in high retail condition. We feel that the condition of this car falls somewhere in between these figures making this one priced very realistically @ just $18,900 when you take into consideration all the work that was just recently completed. Thanks for looking. If any interest in purchasing, please send PM or call me @ 912-634-4949 Stuart a/k/a Reatta Vice St. Simons Island, GA
  11. Hudson sold first week it was posted to my company website. Never made it to this forum. The Kaiser Virginian is still available. I probably should post the complete description & pics to this forum. Some people just love the orphan cars & the Virginian is super rare with under a thousand ever mfg.
  12. Just looking at some of my old posts on the forum & I am flabbergasted myself that I still have this '55 Imperial Sedan so I am reviving the post in case you missed seeing it earlier. I can't say the reason I still have it is because the people who inquired about did not like it when they came out to see it because no one person who ever inquiried came out to see it. Yes it is a lot of car for $9500 but you will never know unless you make an effort to come & see it for yourself. If this car was in the Hershey car coral last month, it would of been sold in 5 minutes. Give me a call me if you want a nice car. You won't find a better one for $9,500. Thanks for looking again, Stuart a/k/a Reatta Vice St. Simons Island, GA 31639 912-634-4949
  13. Been a few weeks since I posted one for sale on the Buy/Sell forum. Here is my latest acquistion I just put up for sale on my company website. Below is the description I posted on my website. Let me know your thoughts. Triple Black 1977 Chevrolet El Camino Classic: One family owned Georgia truck from new. Features include: * 350 C.I. / 175 H.P. 4-BBL.

When original owner retired in 2003 he & his best friend who worked at that same Doraville, GA GM Assembly Plant decided to rebuild the engine & transmission, had the car re-sprayed with a good quality paint job as a retirement therapy project. It was his pride & joy and was always garage kept & pampered all it's life. It has been driven less than 2K miles since the engine rebuild according to the son whom we purchasaed the car from. His dad special ordered it new in 1977 with the top of the line CLASSIC series trim option which sported quad retangular headlights in a stacked arrangement. Sadly, he passed away in 2010 & the family held on to it as a memory until they decided it was now time to depart with it. We were told by his son the 79,961 miles showing on the odometer are the actual miles. The interior is immaculate & all stock, the body is straight, & the exterior Black paint finish has a deep luster.The 1977 El Camino was the last of the fourth-generation models that made their debuts in 1973. It's hard to find a good one in this A body style platform that is still all stock. Most were driven hard, put to bed wet, or turned into hot rods.
