      Successful Superior Court Diminished Value Case.

      “Ron Goduti, an expert in the evaluation of 1965-1973 Corvette cars…testified that the plaintiff’s car is a high-performance Corvette and is considered very collectible Its value was between $60,000.00 and $70,000.00 before the accident but that the value will drop because the car has been damaged in an accident, even if adequate repairs are made. He opined that the plaintiff’s Corvette was no longer a “virgin” and had depreciated $10,000.00…[T]he court accepts Mr. Goduti’s testimony.”
