"I was taken"

- Rmarini21

Ive tried contacting the dealer several times now with nothing back. Here’s my take I bought this car with confidence based on good reviews and talking to them about the car. My concerns were the vehicle had minimal rust and could be driven with little work. I was assured that the vehicle was safe and had some paint and other small defects. After purchasing the car I had to have it shipped. I will say communication with the seller was good. When the car arrived and the shipper pulled it out of the trailer he said the brakes don’t work well. After bringing it to a shop there was a laundry list of safety issues wrong with the car. It is far from being a driver and will require a fair amount of money to be able to drive. The is car cost me over $27k and I don’t even have brakes. Just know and understand the saying BUYER BEWARE. I should’ve taken the time to fly out and look at the car but I was caught up with the good reviews.

"EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH THIS DEALER"

- highwater

I bought a 1969 chevrolet chevelle from american classics and hotrods. I was a little worried paying $30,000 for a car without seeing it first, but after they sent me over 100 photos and a very detailed video i was sure i was getting a great deal. the car was shipped to me and received the car in less than a week. the car was in better condition than the pictures showed. I had talked with casey tyson several times and he was very honest and responded to my messages quickly and detailed. I will continue to do business with them in the future.

"Buyer beware!"

- fisher4men

In December 2016 I bought a 1999 Lincoln in mint/like new condition from American Classics and Hot Rods thru the Mankato MN sales office. I told Steve, the salesman in an email not to proceed with the transaction if the car is not perfect. The salesman Steve prepared a you tube video of the car. The video confirmed like new condition. In the video Steve used the term like new to describe the car. I obtained Ford/Lincoln service records on this vehicle. It had 43000 miles on the odometer, was a granny car and well maintained. I asked Steve the salesman about shipping insurance. His response was, 'no need for me to inquire further as the seller and shipper had coverage and would protect the car'. The seller arranged for shipping. I wired the money to American Classics and Hotrods. Upon arrival, the car was trashed with dents, extensive scratches, interior damage and strange banging noises when moving to my garage.. The seller was contacted and approximately 25 pictures were provided. After receipt of the pictures I received a call from Steve the salesman stating, “Hey Kenneth this is Steve calling from American Classics. I just wanted to let you know that um we’re getting this resolved and taken care of for you. The owner of the company is calling the insurance company and he is going to make sure this gets taken care of and resolved for you. If you have any questions call me (507) 214-3550. Otherwise don’t let anybody harass you and we’ll make sure this gets taken care of. You are a valued customer and we appreciate your business. I hope you are feeling better and have yourself a merry Christmas.” Steve left this message on my home message recorder and I still have it. About 4 1/2 months later and after many emails and unanswered phone calls Steve tells me via email they are not going to follow thru with the above commitment. Now I have a car that is in horrible condition and is not drivable. I contacted a lawyer and the lawyer sent Steve and the owners including Michael Jackson a letter outlining the facts and requested repairs or a refund. This letter was ignored. Buyer beware!!
