California emissions standards are much stricter than those implemented by the EPA. The EPA is a federal government agency that oversees environmental protection matters. In 1970, congress passed the Clean Air Act (CAA). The law gives the EPA the authority to set nationwide vehicle emissions standards. But under one section of the act, California was granted the ability to seek a waiver from federal standards, thereby allowing the state to set its own stricter regulations.

Can you make a Diminished Value claim on an older collector car? As attorneys are known to say "it depends!" Generally, when a car is fully depreciated, the likelihood of a Diminished Value Claim is slim. Collectors cars may be fully depreciated, and then their value starts to rise. Think 1970's air-cooled Porsches! Is this 1960 Jaguar XK150S DHC a candidate?
Did a pre-purchase inspection of a 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback at Motor Car Gallery in Fort Lauderdale today for a client in Southern California. A really nice clean sympathetic restoration, its only fault being new-looking barely used tires with 2009/10 date codes, which should be replaced for safety reasons. Despite a very positive review, the client decided to keep looking! If you are in the market for a '67 Fastback, call Motor Car Gallery, as this one will slip away soon!

Remember the old line - "If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is!" Twice this month we've done pre-purchase inspections on 'deals' for out of state buyers. Upon arrival at the '07 Mercedes, we took one look, called the customer and said "you really don't want an appraisal! Walk away!" The second, a '14 Jaguar XKR was actually pretty good, but had been in an accident and thus suffered Diminished Value somewhere in the $3,000-7,000 range. Nice car, yes! Deal, no! Protect your investment! Get it appraised!
