Classic Showcase always recommends having a pre-purchase inspection (also known as a "PPI") performed on a vehicle before a purchase is made. This allows our customers to gain an outside opinion and evaluation of the vehicle as well as ask any questions they may have. There are a number of local, specialized technicians not affiliated with Classic Showcase that offer this service. The cost usually runs $400 to $700 and up depending on the business, level of service, and the level of inspection requested.
