To whom it may concern

Mr Tom Doyle has recently given considerable information and advice to me in respect of some classic cars I was intending to buy. This was invaluable in helping me to plan finances and facilities. He clearly has a very good knowledge and experience of his field. I have found him to be committed and supportive throughout and would thoroughly recommend his services.

Hi Tom,

Thank you very much for doing this, especially so quickly. I appreciate your opinion and am very happy to pass this along to the bank. If they have any additional questions that I can't answer regarding the appraisal I might reach back out to you. Thanks again for your time, and if you don't mind, I'll pass your information on to friends of mine who are also in the market of buying a Defender with the intention of exporting to the US.





Hi Tom

A very belated note to thank your assistance and advice when I was buying the Morgan. Never having met you and totally relying on your advice and inspection as I was buying the car unsighted I was obviously a little apprehensive. However after speaking to you a few times on the phone you soon but me at ease and I felt very comfortable going foward .The reports you sent me after inspection were very detailed and I have ended up with a lovely car and exactly what I was looking for "a hassle free classic Morgan" .

Your advice on getting the car transported from the east coast of the the south of Ireland was also invaluable and it was delivered to my door in lovely condition. 

Thank you for your assistance and advice and should you ever need to use me as a reference please do not hesitate to call me.

Regards - Brian

Many thanks for the figures and your suggestions, Tom. Upon consideration, I think I'll pass on this car, but I hope to use your services in the future. I can see you know what you're doing.

I live in the Chicago, Illinois area, USA. In October 2012, I decided to purchase a Daimler in the UK. My busy schedule does not allow me to spend a few weeks overseas chasing cars. I am a very sceptical person with limited trust so after I found Nostalgic Classic Car Appraisals on the Internet, I wasn't sure how this situation would work out.

What a pleasant surprise. After a few conversations, and a few weeks later, Tom found me the right car at the right price and condition. He helped me with the whole purchasing process including shipping the car to the US. The car arrived in perfect condition.

Tom is a guy who is very knowledgeable in collector cars and very professional in the manner in which he conducts business. Tom, thank you, and I look forward to doing more business with you in the future.

Hello Tom

I saw an article that you posted that gives me great confidence in the integrity of your services. Here is the link to it:

Thank you for the shipping quotes for the overseas shipping services to the USA.

Although I am not able to proceed with the PickUp purchase due to financial constraints, I am happy with the process we have undertaken, and am pleased to have you as a contact that I feel confidence in. I will continue to watch for other vehicles that I might be interested in and when the circumstances are right, I will contact you again for your services.

Ezine Certificate


Two Bentley's at a salvage auction. The photos on the auction site did not reflect the condition of the cars. My client was very tempted to buy one until he saw my photos. His opinion was money well spent as he would have been very disappointed if he had bought either of the cars.

His name is Mr Gill from Bedford.

Humber Hawk Mk VIHumber Hawk Mk VI

In January 2012 a Humber Hawk MK VI appeared for sale in the UK. Since i am living in Cyprus i tried to find a company to check the car for me and give me a report in order to decide what to do.

I tried searching the internet and i decided to call Nostalgic Classic Car Appraisals and Mr Tom Doyle. This was the best choice I could make. Tom inspected the car, took photos and sent me the report.

Tom gave me guidelines and his opinion about the car and the decision was to buy it. I bought the car, Tom arranged the collection and delivery to the forwarder and arranged all necessary papers.

Tom also supplied me with some service parts and service manuals.

A month later i collected my Humber in Cyprus and I wish to say that I am so happy with the car and more happy that I met Tom and the perfect job he did for me.

Tom’s report was accurate, and I must say that he knows well his job, and loves what he is doing. He is a true expert and professional that you can trust.

I talked to Tom several times over the phone since then and believe me is like talking to a friend you knew from the past.

Many thanks Tom.

Tom Doyle from Nostalgic Car Appraisals helped me a lot, although with a no buy of an antique Jaguar, offered through the internet.  He found out, that the company to be involved did not exist and that the whole deal was a scam.

Thank you, Tom

Triumph StagTriumph StagTriumph Stag


I bought the Triumph Stag as inspected. I am happy with the purchase and the service provided by Tom Doyle. The car met my expectations and matched the description in the report. The service was excellent and the report and photographs sent the same day gave me the confidence to conclude the deal.

I would recommend using the service provided by Nostalgic Classic Car Appraisals.

Mr McDonnell Cork. Ireland

We used the services of Nostalgic Classic Car Appraisals last year. The remit was to source vehicles that were used in the oil fields of Qatar. The first vehicle was dated 1931 a Morris one ton pick up. There were vehicles we could not identify as we only had photographs and the vehicles were obsolete. Tom not only identified each vehicle he also found them. Not as easy as you may think as this a time sensitive operation. He began the last week of June and finished beginning of August. Our parade is early December and all the vehicles had to be shipped to Qatar, Tom's assistance was priceless in arranging the collection of the vehicles from all four corners of the UK. Tom sourced all of the vehicles on our list without exception.

The list was:

1 Mighty Antar
1 Morris 1 Ton Van
1 Mark 4 Humber Super Snipe Pickup
1 Mark 4 Humber Super Snipe Saloon
1 Mark 3 Humber Super Snipe Pickup
2 Bedford RL Trucks
1 Austin / Morris A55

It is now parade planning time again for 2011, with a similar remit and the services of Nostalgic Classic Car Appraisals is essential to us.
