How seriously do classic car people take the issue of authenticity.

Judging by this I would say some take it very seriously.

Steve -

It's 1.5 Million!

Even for Jerry, its a lot of money.

Let's see that argument over a $250 model 1857 Waltham.

I realize that but the thing that impressed me was the resources available to authenticate the car.

if you read this follow up story there are lots of people mentioned

Now compare that to what we have even for top level watches.

I think that is one area where the watch world is way behind.
