I have different levels of  "rating and grading" available for grading quality,  condition, craftsmanship, and integrity of fabrication in all areas. The wear and tear patterns are unique to your vehicle, this has to be assessed properly to place values on it accurately. (*See; bullit points below) Pictures can work for or against a vehicle depending on the focus, never get a photo only appraisal. It might seem simple, but consider the number of components, fasteners, & variables, there is a lot more to it than you may realize. 

*This tribute from the late Bill Parker is for his very special wife Linda. It was custom built with all the modern ammenities 'luxurious in leather',w. candy brandy paint, and a big block 454 to move it around. It is flawless, magnificent to drive, and a special vehicle ( one of many Bill has custom built over all these years) and it has been an honor and privalege to work on. I'm sure Bill smiles from heaven every time it drives down the street. A wonderful vehicle, from wonderful people. Bill and Linda have both spent their lives in service to our great country, in the armed forces. I have had the utmost respect and admiration for them. This vehicle represents not only one mans vision, but the love for the hobby and his awesome wife, Linda..

I'm here for the long haul,... I'll be here tomorrow and always for you, and your "Toys". 


Have a high end luxury, sport, exotic car that's just been wrecked? Did you know even after its been repaired to factory new, because of the CarFax, and public record, it's "worth less".

*Special Section;                        "Client's Car of the Month"

Integrity of components based on manufacture name, part numbers, date codes, casting numbers, stamping numbers are what start the process, there is much more. Numbers matching original vehicles are typically only 'partially correct by percentages' & should be properly identified, deciferd & decoded.  Rarity may require a deeper more thorough approach. Don't believe everything you see on the web, get certifiable, unequivocal evidence from a highly trained professional, you really get what you pay for here.

*Exotic dream car? I can help you make all the right decisions, for maximum investment returns and worry free purchases. From conservative priced to the 'rarest-competition-models' in the world, researched with "the Gold standard" of experts jointly;

we can provide 100% satisfaction on 'unequivocal evidence' in whatever price range you wish to invest in.

**​Diminution Report Specialists, I can help you get "ALL" of that diminished- amount back. ​Professional, accurate, proven results. Diminished value is a wrecked-then fixed vehicle. Call me for information regarding reimbursement of this diminished amount, and how to 'get it back'. Laws regarding this issue differ by state laws. Call me with all your questions.

** We can remunerate a contract or upgrade your previously done report anytime you wish. The beauty of my reports' are in it's flexibility. I can always add an addendum, & adl.photos, to reflect additional upgrades, and I can always 'upgrade a report' to a much 'higher grade' of analysis and add in additional detail, (*such as a 10-page 'detailed itemized parts listing') to upgrade a basic 350-point report, to a 1,000-point of even my 'top of the line' 10,000-point analysis. Highly detailed analysis can always be added, to the point of  forensic procedures and analysis-well 'beyond what anyone else in this industry is doing'.  Cars I've done 21 years ago are 'opting-up' for more articulate detail ( beyond the basic 1178-bits of information and the 350-point basic report.) as their cars have continued to appreciate in value.  *Call for a details, on upgrades, appreciation factors, and upgrades to encompass everything your doing with your ride, including rebuilding, repainting, replating, recovering it.

Boring, balancing,  blueprinting, porting, cryogenic treatments & coatings to parts, need to be itemized accordingly. There is a tremendous amount of things we can do, to present 'unequivocal evidence', alot of which is not public knowledge. I have done many multi-million dollar projects, and technical forensic procedures and analysis can be implemented if necessary.

Heavily modified vehicles, racecars of all kinds and custom creations always surpass auction-resulted comparibles, our approach and procedures are far more accurate. Quality of craftsmanship, the integrity of fabrication, and the quality of paint & body work, integrity of components, are all taken into close consideration for valuation, sometimes to the point of forensic analysis.

Thank you, Bradley Walker for the opportunity to show your incredible hand built, custom made, aluminum V-Twin-Merch-engined, Baker 6-speed, polished billet aluminum adorned, flamed with air-brushed skulls and marbelized custom paint work, custom bikes. I first appraised the gray one 15 years ago when it was first finished for insurance purposes. It is an amazing bike of top show quality craftsmanship, and a big cubic inch motor that is very fast. An entire book could be written about all the details in every inch of this fine bike. Unfortunately, Brad passed on reciently, so VAA.Inc. wishes to honor his family with what he accomplished in building of this great machine.
