  1. Yes it sure looks like they started with roadsters.
  2. I know of many pre-1920's cars. What is the most you can spend? When are you prepared to act? This lets me know if I can help you.
  3. Trucks were considered essential to the war effort. So a lot of trucks were built during the war. More so than cars. You had to proof of essential activities to purchase a new truck.
  4. I am trying to help you. The most important thing is the budget. Figure that out then only look at cars in that range. When you find your car go and buy it. Getting upset at others for recognizing a good deal and buying a car before you do will not find you a car. It is better to have a car and enjoy it than to look forever.
  5. I get people in my shop all the time that say "I can spend anything I want on a car!" Then after wasting a bunch of time they might have $10,000. Which is plenty to find a fun car. But you shouldn't be asking to test drive a brand new Ferrari. The days of the little old lady giving away a Duesenberg for $5 are long gone. Today most of the little old ladies think their 84 Corvette is worth $1,000,000. So setting a price range or getting pre qualified for a loan is the best route. When someone calls me to find them a car. But can't tell me their budget I tell them I can't help you.
  6. The amount of money you have to spend determines what cars you can buy. Therefore is the most important factor in what you should be looking at. It will also help folks to know what they should be showing you.
