    I purchased a dee-low roadster kit from Jackie and first off it is complete trash. Upon receiving my crate first of all it collapsed in shipping and broke the whole window frame off. The body has no bracing, I have spent 2 weeks just trying to straighten it out. He didn't even send me everything. The rear wing wasn't sent, the side fins were missing and some interior trim was missing. This guy is a crook and should be shut down for this fiberglass mess he's selling. But he says "it's the best kit on planet Earth" Trust me spend the extra money and buy something you actually have a chance to complete. I WILL be buying a new body kit so if anyone has one for sale let me know. $4,250.00 Kit + 978.50 shipping this was a very expensive mistake. Sorry Jackie you should have at least tried to fix this mess not shun me off!

    Mike Chase
    (Murci-Mike) on his profile page has his e-mail hidden. he had it up there the other day as chaselambo@gmail.com (or something like that)




    It's Official, Joe from Inland Exotics is a Scam Artist!

    I ordered parts from him totalling over $1,500 and I haven't received a single thing and it's been over 2 months now. The times he responds to my emails or actually picks up the phone when I call, he gives me excuses after excuses as to why my parts haven't been shipped yet. I strongly advise anyone to think twice if you're considering ordering anything from him in the future. It doesn't matter whether you buy his stuff through ebay or deal with him personally he will take your money and give you nothing in return.

    subject: Fraud Alert-Super replica

    I thought that replica customers would be interested in this Fraud Alert about Super Replica

    FRAUD ALERT : WE ARE OBLIGATED TO INFORM ALL PEOPLE IN THE "KIT CAR INDUSTRY" THAT A COMPANY CALLED "SUPER REPLICA" LOCATED IN THE COUNTRY OF PANAMA HAS BEEN CONFIRMED TO BE A DISHONEST, UNSCRUPULOUS, FRAUDULENT ENTERPRISE. THEAND THEY HAVE MANY WEBSITES ON THE INTERNET. THEY WILL PROMISE YOU THE WORLD AND DELIVER NOTHING. THEIR COMPANY SLOGAN IS "SUPER REPLICA, A NAME YOU CAN."

    E OUR CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE CALLED AND ASKED WHAT WE KNEW ABOUT THE cOMPANY. "SUPER REPLICA" IS LICENSED AS AN "AUTO MECHANIC REPAIR SHOP". THEY OPERATE OUT OF AN OLD, ABANDONED GAS STATION. THEY ONLY REPAIR STANDARD, USED MOTOR VEHICLES LIKE NISSAN SENTRAS AND THE LIKE. THEY DO OWN A COMPUTER AND THEY ARE RUNNING AN INTERNET SCAM.

    ALSO THE U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT HAS ISSUED A TRAVEL ADVISORY FOR AMERICANS TRAVELING TO PANAMA BECAUSE SO MANY FOREIGNERS
    HAVE BEEN HELD HOSTAGE FOR RANSOM MONEY IN THAT COUNTRY. WE WERE NOT AWARE OF THE U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT'S ADVISORY UNTIL WE RETURNED FROM PANAMA. BUYERS BEWARE!

    so forumers kindly be eyes open on whatever offer from super replicas... i do believe there is still someone would really interested and trust the super replicas could fulfill their dream... but unfortunately... wake up.. and dreams over!!!

    SCAMMED $60,000! BY ROBERT PROULX OF EXOTIC GLASS *SCAMMED*
    From seafoodlover
    Robert Prolux of exotic glass had played me for 3 years now!!! I’ve been promised a car over and over again and he has yet to even start my build yet. He has been sending me pictures of my car and then after 3 years of waiting at Carlisle 2006 I found out from his ex-friend which he had also ripped off that those pictures were all a fake! Had been sending me old pictures of his previous build from John Scott’s car. Then right after that I rushed over to Rick and Tara at the D&R booth at Carlisle and asked them if Robert had ordered a kit from them for my build? They had told me no! Robert had NEVER EVEN ORDERED my kit to begin with. So EVERYTHING was all LIES! Then of course it’s the Katrina excuses....funny how he had never even ordered my kit from D&R and sending me fake pictures all which happened way before Katrina. Remember I had paid this guy 3 years ago; come to think about it I had even offered to help this guy out after Katrina by offering to send him clothes and stuff! He would always reply to my emails but then after waiting 3 years with excuse after excuse I had emailed him saying that I will go up to your shop exotic glass to see the status of my build and sure enough I’ve never heard back from him again.

    To make matters worse over at Carlisle now I found out that I wasn’t the only one...he had also ripped another buyer off a SV project for over $100.000.00! Another roadster for $40,000.00 and a 6.0 project for $12,000.00! This guy has over $200,000.00 of honest peoples hard working earned money with no results to show for it.

    his website is http://www.exoticglass1.com/

    From Megadeth:
    I just found this thread through a Google search, because I'm being scammed by this same Robert Proulx guy. I bought an electric guitar from him through another forum, which he uses the same shaddoe user name, and says he's an exotic car builder. I sent him the money, and as soon as he got it, he stopped responding to my emails, and he won't answer his cell phone. I found out where he works and called them, he just quit his job on Friday so they couldn't give me his home phone number. Here is a link to his profile on that guitar forum...

    Sorry to hear you lost your cash. It happens more than people are willing to mention. I removed the following from the list based upon your experience:

    Beware!
    LV-1
    You need to be very careful. He did not cheat me but the only reason I think he didn't was because I was too smart to send him money. He had an add on Lamborghinireplica.com for LP640 parts and a complete 6.0. When I inquired about the 640 parts he immediately sent me prices and a photo of his top quality part. The part in the picture was excellent, the only problem is the part was John Watson's. I already had that same photo John sent me and had seen the part in person at John's shop. I forwarded the e-mail to John and he confirmed that it was his photo and that the guy requested some photos because he was interested in buying some parts. By the way, he went by two different names but the same e-mail. I sent him an e-mail explaining what I knew and he replied with same stuff most scammers do, it was my loss for not doing business with him, blah, blah.

    Re: Kit Car Bad and Good Vendor List, Last Update: 13 February 2009

    I agree with Hawk. I did the LS6 conversion with the G6 6 speed manual. Thought it was going to be the best thing since apple pie after talking with archie about it. I had problems and problems and more problems. Never will i do an archie conversion transverse setup in a kit car. Nothing works properly, the clutch has no pilot bearing, which is a vibration nightmare, the starter kept popping out of the pocket so I had to fab something up to keep it in place, when the car runs it makes a metal on metal squealing noise. The throw out bearing rattles unless you push the clutch in. Not a good setup. Plus it cost me a small fortune to do. Custom Archie axles were a ton of money and ended up just being re cut and re splined Fiero axles.

    ;D wow thanks love501 I just wanted to know whether they were real or not. Superreplicas just released a nother video of them using a lamborghini reventon as their kit car followed by a murcielago. Now I question whether they were real or not. Someone out there I hope finds out the truth about them. As for the question awnsered I really appreciate the advice and if I may ask where is used fiero parts located.

    Angry Robslp640

    Fraud Alert - ROBSLP640

    Scammed out of $81,560 dollars by Robert Ward of Phoenix, AZ - also known as ROBSLP640 . We had a written agreement that my car would be completed on or before May 21. I was promised and reassured constantly over the course of 3 months that my car would be ready in time. I even paid ten's of thousands of dollars extra to expedite the build. Days before my car was to be delivered I was told that he would not make the delivery date. As of this posting, he claims that he does not know when my car will be ready. This guy will promise you the world, and deliver nothing!
