I am glad to bring in the most noted authorities in the world to jointly research & document historically significant projects. I know where to go to get all the answers I need and enjoy being involved in a constantly growing and  learning environment. I appreciate your business and look forward to helping with your projects.

As more and more cases of national and international wrong doing by 'bad people' has been brought to the public eye, through TV.and the liberal news media, more and more cases have been brought to 'public record' through the court systems in this country. The general public has become acquainted with these 'high profile cases' involving huge amounts of ultra-rare cars, bikes, boats, and collectibles of the rich and famous, and especially the"wrong do'ers". I have personally represented alot of these cases in court, working with state and federal governmental agencies, to properly bring these cases into court for proper legal judgements. It is absolutely alarming the amount of 'wrong do'ers'  that have 'hidden money in these vehiclular assets' and shifted them all over the world. Incorrect, restamped, reTitled, "Forgeries" being passed around, like Hot Wheels Toys, often times the titles never being registered or reregistered properly. It is appauling, and quite frankly disscusting, yet continues to happen. I am sure State and Federal Laws will change in the future, to protect the buyer of the "Forgeries", but for now, not alot can be done, due to the differences in the state laws governing Vin.#s. and Specialty vehicles, especially Race Cars. My synopsis; buyer beware. Hire a professional to represent your interests first so you don't get caught up in any 'bad stuff' with specialty vehicle purchases. It makes good sense.  Sincerely, Kurt A. Stoops Sr.Appraiser, Proprietor, VAA. Inc.

There are numerous other processes I utilize to provide unequivocal evidence when representing specialty vehicles in the court rooms. I am not at liberty to share this information as I do not want to make it public information. *Not all things written by the writers of the reference resource materials on documenting rare numbers matching cars and components are 100% correct. I will leave it at that.
