Carnection Advisors founder Jim Kruse was raised in a family that restored some of the rarest cars in the world. A past board member of the Horseless Carriage Club of America, Jim went on his first car hunting trip at the age of 12 and grew up driving in hundreds of rallies. Today, car collectors turn to Jim for classic car advice.
We provide confidential and objective classic car advice to our clients by assisting them in pre-planning the future of their collection. It's an important part of an estate but frequently gets left to the surviving spouse at the worst possible time.
