Is this car the real thing? — That is the question! Numbers matching? Fake trim tag? Re-stamp? Broach marks? Restoration quality? Build sheet/invoice authentication? These are the questions we asked Bruce Shaw, Esq., about. He’s a past Bloomington Gold Instructor and a past NCRS National Judge. Shaw is a hands-on motorhead who restored a 1966 427/425HP Corvette that received the Duntov Award. His practice, the Law Offices of Bruce Shaw, PC, has more practical experience with American collector cars than any other law firm in the U.S.! If there’s a question about the pedigree of a collector car, Shaw is the go- to guy, so we interviewed him. Here’s what he had to say.
