BEWARE!!! DO NOT BUY A CLASSIC CAR HERE!!
Absolutely horrible place to do business with!!! After spending $95k for a car that come to find out was falsely advertised as a 1970 Chevelle Convertible SS! (SS emblems and other cosmetics don’t make a vehicle a built from the factory true SS car) if auto dealers are going to advertise the car as such they have to be able to provide legitimate documentation showing that which clearly did not happen in my case and the vehicle was also NOT advertised on several different websites including the other classic auto dealer they purchase these classic cars from to resell at a higher profit margin as a “tribute, clone, or recreation SS car” Thats the first mistake they did now on to the second issue at hand. The vehicle arrived clearly with a BLOWN MOTOR!! After sending pictures of the vehicle oil stick showing it had a great ordeal of water in the oil as well as the radiator had no water because the motor was burning it all and I also sent a video of it running horribly being pulled off the transport truck burning white smoke and sounding like it is misfiring after running just a short few minutes the owner text me back and said “lose my number your a scam artists” yes folks that’s how the owner of Southern Motors in Clarkston Michigan responds to people who purchase vehicles from them and they have an issue!! They always make themselves the victim when someone has a complaint about a vehicle they have purchased from them. Go check out all the Yelp and Google reviews that they try to hide with fake good reviews from people that they know. They assume that they can tell customers to get lost because very often most of the classic cars they sell are often sold to people out of state and that it will just “go away” After much documentation of delivery of the vehicle with the transporter and written statements of witnesses to attest to its mechanical condition as well as videos it’s extremely clear Southern Motors in Clarkston Michigan sold me a vehicle with severe mechanical issues!! When someone spends $95k on a vehicle they expect it to be what was advertised and also run CORRECTLY!! Clearly this vehicle I purchased was not! The owners response to this complaint will come as to no surprise as you can see from other review sites including the Better Business Bureau complaints he will make himself the victim and will say anything to try to discredit a buyers legitimate complaint. They sold a vehicle and got PAID $95k regardless of how he wants to respond with the nonsense, nothing excuses this type of business or behavior. I have videos and pictures for anyone that would like to see just how my $95k car arrived on the enclosed transport trailer. BUYER BEWARE!!!
