When I was looking for a GT and asked Rich to do a PPI on the one I ended up buying, I asked him if he saw any scratches dings dents anything at all, and he replied something like, 'I don't think so, well maybe something minor from taking the cover on and off over the years.' And not knowing Rich besides the positive forum comments about him, I was still skeptical about the whole thing due to my experience with the rest of the shady automobile world. Nevertheless, with only 207 miles on the car, I thought, 'How bad could it be' and headed to MI to see it. It turned out to be perfect; showroom new to my eyes. If there are any flaws I can't find 'em. Now when he says something, I know like the rest of you guys, I can trust it 100%. Thanks so much Rich 🤝

And nice article! (y)

When I visited Rich last November to help him (lol) get my GT ready to sell, I also visited old friend Don Sherman, who asked if Rich's expertise might make a good story for Hagerty.

I said, "You're reading my mind- come over tomorrow morning." He drove his new C8 over, spent a couple hours with Rich and his menagerie of GT's, and half a year later, the article has FINALLY made it into print.

Rich (and only Rich) has worked on my twice (Ford Nationals-Carlisle and Virginia gathering)...I was as much of a sponge as I could be. He has also helped with expertise/parts (defrost vents, headlights) numerous times. I think we need to pool our money/resources and clone him (maybe two clones). THANK YOU, RICH!!!

Rich is without question THE most authorative and knowledgeable GT fixer in the country. For you new GT owners and prospective owners, Rich knows the GT's (and has probably worked on the VIN somewhere along its life).

What a great article, well written and so completely deserved.

Thanks centerpunch for helping make this review of Rich happen.

He is absolutely the real deal, so skilled, so smart, and so decent.

Keep on rolling Rich, YOU ARE THE MAN!!
