About vivalasvegasautos

Viva Las Vegas Autos Note from the Owner . . .

I am a “used car dealer” but before  that, I’m an automobile enthusiast.  I love original, rare  and high quality modified vintage and modern cars. Over the past  16 years I’ve been in business, I have come to appreciate an  expanding selection of high-demand, high value vehicles as well. I specialize in and I am always on the lookout for cars and  trucks that were cherished by their previous owners.
 
I have an experienced eye for quality  and I’ve discovered that my preferred buyers can instantly  discern such a vehicle and I have therefore, built my business  and reputation around finding these kinds of cars for this type  of customer. Super low miles and/or gentle ownership are strict  requirements but a car must do something for me on a personal  level if there is any hope of convincing you, the buyer, that  this is an above average, exceptional vehicle.  If nothing  about the car excites me, it probably won’t do much for you  either and I would soon be out of business.
 
With just four employees and no sales people, I realize how  unusual a “dealership” like mine may be at a first glance.   It has taken great care and effort to create such an  organization and often, an unusually high investment in a  particular car we are about to list.  To sell the best it  is critical to have a trusted expert in my corner.  First we do  an exhaustive 130 point inspection on each and every vehicle and  hope nothing escapes our methodical investigation.   Experience has shown that everything I spend making a car truly  “right” will come back to me not only with a higher selling  price, but a happy customer that says good things about Viva Las  Vegas Autos.  Moreover; it allows us to describe the car  with ease and confidence, something that simply is not possible  unless we think it is true.  If major issues are found or  the cost of fixing the car the way it should be makes it too  expensive to sell, my choice is an easy one.  I simply  absorb a few hundred dollars loss for my trouble and sell it at  auction so you don’t get a headache over the vehicle.
 
After the vehicle is fully checked over and made whole at any  level it needs to be, we researches its history, documents  documenting originality and authenticity.  Historical  significance, rarity, special features, possible modifications  and much more are used to accurately describe the vehicle with  integrity and honesty.  Most important for the potential  buyer are the 100 to 200 high resolution pictures that I take  myself.  The pricey equipment I use would be right at home  in the hands of the very best professional photographers and  I’ve developed a logical format that walks you around the entire  vehicle with close-up shots of every square inch.  I  provide detailed views of the interior, under the hood and then  put it on a lift to show the undercarriage and confirm that the  beauty of the car you are considering is not merely skin deep.   Even our detailers are enthusiastic about the cars they  meticulously clean.  Reconditioning can sometimes take  several as we do all that we can within reason to get our  vehicles in tip top condition visually and cosmetically. Way  more than just a cheap detail….Our details are more like  refurbishing to as close to new as we can possibly get our  vehicles.
 
Usually, I’ll also include a high definition video that shows  the car doing its thing.  If it’s a fast car, we film it  going fast.  If it’s a 4x4 you’ll see it crawling up a  hill.  In every case you will hear things like a rumbling  exhaust, working sound system and watch gauges operational as  well.  
 
No “dealer,” on-line or in the real world, takes it to this  level.  No other seller or organization provides you, the  buyer, with so much information.  I do this because it is  the only way I can convince a person; often a world away, unable  to touch or feel their purchase that my vehicle is for real and  what I say is an honest assessment.  All the above is  necessary for me to stay in business while keeping integrity  intact. I want every buyer to be happy and I need glowing  feedback on eBay.  To accomplish that I need satisfied  customers that are as thrilled with their purchase as I was when  I bought it.
 
If you have any questions at all, please call me on my cell at:  702-353-7500.  If your inquiry is sincere and your  offer serious, you’ll find me the most accommodating business  partner you’ve ever dealt with.  If you call or e-mail  asking for my reserve or “what is my bottom line” I will be  looking for ways to politely end the conversation.  Until  you are ready to actually make an offer, I will happily quote  you a liberal suggested retail price – a number we both know  will not buy the car so, don’t waste your time, or mine.  I  am after all, a “used car dealer.”

Viva Las Vegas Autos Terms of  Sales . . .

This vehicle is safely  stored in our beautiful climate controlled showroom in Boulder  City, Nevada.  We are just 25 minutes from Las Vegas  International Airport (McCarran) and welcome the opportunity to  meet the winning bidder there and drive them to our facility for  vehicle delivery.  We have years of experience with vehicle  shipping, nationwide and across the globe.  We stand ready  to help with whatever arrangements are necessary at the buyers  request and expense.  This vehicle will not be delivered or  released for shipment until complete payment is received and all  funds have cleared.
Third party,  pre-purchase vehicle inspections are welcome BEFORE the auction  ends.  We are happy to answer questions about this vehicle  and resolve any concerns you may have BEFORE YOU BID and BEFORE  THE AUCTION ENDS . . .

Full payment must be  received within four (3) business days of the end of auction.   Cashiers-check, direct deposit or cash in person are acceptable  but BANK to BANK WIRE TRANSFER IS PREFERRED for US winners and  required for all winning bidders outside the United States.   Loan checks can be accepted only after prior approval from the  owner, Doug Williams.  M/Os will NEVER be accepted.   CHECKS in ANY FORM MUST BE CLEARED as CASHABLE FUNDS before  delivery of any item.
Free and clear title is  in seller's possession and will be transferred upon payment in  full and accepted delivery of the automobile. By Nevada State  Law, Dealers have up to 30 days to delivery titles due to  auction and floorline title housing.
Important:    Winning bidders for automobile transactions are not obligated to  purchase nor is the seller obligated to sell to any winning  bidder according to eBay's policies, see (  pages.ebay.com/help/policies/non-binding-bid.html ).   Bidders that win an auction and then do not pay, spoil the  integrity of the eBay experience and cause sellers to incur  additional costs and losses due to the non-paying bidders  negligence and disregard for honest dealings.  If you win  this auction and we collect your non-refundable deposit via  credit card, Paypal or any other means, you agree to waive your  right to claim your deposit back with any arbitration to your  bank, credit card issuer or PayPal.

If you bid just to see  what a reserve is then cancel your bid, we will immediately  cancel your ability bid on any of our auctions in the future.
We want to have a very  positive experience on eBay, just like you do. Don't use eBay as  your playground to bid without responsibility or commitment.  eBay's auction system promotes irresponsible bidders because  there is no accountability whatsoever as there is for sellers.  Most bidders never have any real intention to complete any  transaction but we do as responsible sellers, so don't play  irresponsibly online, we don't. 
We will happily do  whatever is required to assist a legitimate bidder that intends  to purchase the vehicle with their transaction.
This vehicle sold  AS-IS, with no warranty.  This is not a new vehicle, it is  used.  A used vehicle will have normal wear and tear  congruent to its age and/or mileage.  This vehicle may have  dings, scratches or other indications of use because it has been  used.  Terms such as "perfection," "flawless" or "mint" may  not be subjective but all other descriptions are.
 When you bid,  you understand and agree to these terms.

 Research  for this ad was done with all due diligence toward an accurate  presentation of the facts.  All information herein  represents our sincere effort to be correct.  If we have  made any obvious errors or provided information later found to  be inaccurate, it is still your responsibility to inspect the  pictures for verification.  Descriptive words like  "perfect" or "flawless" are subjective opinions because nothing  is perfect; flaws are inevitable.  If you question what you  see, feel free to inspect our vehicles in person or by a  professional inspection service strictly prior to the close of  this auction.  Post auctio
