Vintage Legend focuses on the unrestored vehicle, and includes American brands. This program provides status, recognition, provenance and appreciation to unrestored vehicles. The certification team provides each owner with a detailed listing of our findings in a comprehensive report. Our goal is to uncover new information, share it with you and act as a repository for factory standards and processes. For our program goals and details click on the icon    Vintage Legend Program Goals

Our certification teams consists of judges Brett Merryman, Steve Shauger, Chris White,  Roger Gibson, Jim Cunningham, Rick Campbell  and incorporates other specialists based on make and model. Each core team member possesses over 30 years experience as restorers, collectors, historians and judges in the hobby.
