The appraisal report on Brennan's Model A contained 10 more pages of photos just like this page, providing an extensive look at the roadster. While photos are an important part of the appraisal documentation, photos can't tell the whole story of any car. For example, it's hard to see the difference between economical vinyl upholstery and high-dollar imported leather when you're looking at a 4-inch snapshot, but that's a huge difference and the right information needs to be noted and included in the appraisal. The value of your hot rod is based on a lot more than the total sum of all the receipts. The quality of the build is another important factor. For example, was that expensive leather upholstery masterfully stitched by a talented upholsterer or hastily needled up by an inexperienced amateur? An experienced appraiser can identify the difference between poor and excellent workmanship, and the difference will affect the ultimate value of the car.
