Pleaseremember our cars are classics and most of our inventory is over 40 years old. They're built to drive and do develop drips from long periods of sitting due to expanding and contracting seals and gaskets. It's seldom that we come across a classic that's completely drip free. We do our best to describe our inventory in full detail, o include pictures and video; however, ue tothe age of these cars, e're unable to offer a warranty. While we only deal in vehicles that are in quality condition, e always prefer the buyer take the time to check the vehicle out in person or arrange for a third party vehicle inspection.
