Brendan Ryan

I grew up in the golden-era of American classics and muscle cars; iconic Corvettes, GTOs, Road Runners, mid-50’s Chevrolets, Shelbys and everything else in between. Building models, fetching wrenches, sitting in the bleachers of Fremont Drag Strip watching all the greats drive by, I got behind the wheel of my own classic earlier than most and it’s fair to say I’m happiest in the driver’s seat.

In 2001, decades of dreaming, planning, and sacrifice took the shape of my own award-winning 1955 Chevrolet. The 55 opened my eyes to a new level of car shows and the world-wide community of car enthusiasts. As my appreciation for automotive history and learning deepened so has my expertise in the roster of classics featured at premier shows including the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Grand National Roadster Show, Good Guys, Sacramento Autorama, and The Blackhawk Collection. Grounded in the experience of my own show car project I appreciate the high standards your vehicles deserve and I’m a champion for owners and caretakers… past, present and future.

Best In Show Motorcar Services reflects my dedication to our shared passion, documenting the value of our cars with rich and well-researched appraisals. It’s a skill I’m proud to offer to clients and another opportunity to honor the design and engineering traditions we all love.
