"I wanted to leave a review concerning my experience with Cardone and daughter. My wife and I recently decided to purchase a classic car for use during the summer months. We ended up deciding on a 1966 convertible beetle. The sale was handled by David Cardone and we couldn't be happier. Not only was David knowledgeable, courteous, and instructive but his ability to point out important findings with both sales and mechanical issues was invaluable. His years of expertise in both buying, selling and fixing classic cars was unreal. It made the process a pleasant and informative adventure rather than something to be dreaded. Although the foray into classic car purchase isn't exactly inexpensive, I feel the cost would have been so much more had we not had David helping us through the process. In our exam of the car David allowed me to look at the car on my own for a period of time and then ask pertinent questions. I never felt pressured, coerced or "handled" in my purchase. Truthfully, I almost felt like I was speaking to my knowledgeable friend who was just helping me with the purchase. It was such a pleasure to meet him and work with him. I know I will be doing more business with Cardone and daughter in the future and highly recommend them."

"I just had one of the best experiences one could have buying a rebuilt motor for my Austin Healey. My wife and I were impressed by what must be one of the cleanest most organized shops out there. Everything was labeled and in its place and the personnel could not have been more polite and helpful. Would I have work done or buy there again? Absolutely!"
