This Bel Air has a look. The camera man kept telling me to raise the price after making the video. It's a sharp looking, comfortable car. I think I'll take it home today, I want to shift those gears!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
