streetbeast-no reply

Looks like I'm getting ripped off by Streetbeasts. Bob keeps saying everything is o.k.. I have been trying to get Bob to call or e-mail me lately, no reply. I'm down about 20K. Yeah, been paying for years. I don't know what to do. I've paid off the body and frame, tilt front (41 Willys), radiator and FAB 9 Rear. I'm afraid all is lost. Well that's my story. Thanks for the shoulder to cry on.

This is a damn shame that these guys are still in business. I just now called their number and got a recording to leave all my horse power and a rep will get back to me as soon as possible.

Oldcar, time to get in line and call the Florida Attorn. General office and file a formal complaint. I'm sure their will be several more along soon that will give you additional advice. Very sorry to hear about this happening again to another lied to customer....Dave

On a side note...what kind of shape are the parts in that you have received, body, frame etc??

waiting

I willing to wait for Bob to reply. I know streetbeasts is doing badly now. I was told they are going to stop production at the end of the year. Bob promised to deliver the car, so I'm willing to give him the chance. I don't know much about George Levin. Well, I'll let you know. Seems we are in an endless recession.

If you want to know about George Levin just read the streetbeast thread HERE. He and the entire company are the slimiest of the slime balls, always have been even when he owned and operated CMC. Unfortunately you are just the latest unsuspecting customer to be screwed by these CRIMINALS. If I were you I'd make a quick trip down to Florida and show up at their door step with the cops and force them to deliver what you've already paid for right then and there. That's probably the only way you'll ever get anything at all.

Good luck.... you'll need it.

What, exactly, have you physically received thus far? It sounds like you've been on a payment plan but that you've gotten no parts or pieces. Is that correct?

And you may want to pick up the pace for getting this resolved. The most recent press out of Florida says the noose is tightening around Levin for his involvement other illegal financial matters. If and when he goes down, all of his holdings may go down with him...including the Beast.

It's hard fr me to believe "Bob". A man in jail, broke, old, with no way to make anything right, is going to fulfill your purchase. Get your receipts in order, make a call to the D.A.'s office, get after this or you may be too late, if not too late already.

I`m just kind of curious. You`ve gotten nothing and forked over 20 G`s? I hope you`ve gotten something, because if you`ve gotten nothing, and I hate to say this, I can`t feel sorry for you. Hand over cash and get nothing in return but promises isn`t good enough as promises don`t hold water. Sure, everyone seems to still believe in the great american tradition of "trust and honesty" Times change and that`s been dead and gone over 40 years. Trust NOBODY. Let them EARN your trust.

streetbeast news

I didn't expect any replys about my issue with street beasts, just telling what is happening with me. Some seem interested so I'll talk a little about it. To answer one question, no, I have not received any parts. I am having them install the rear and front suspension and the tilt front; a roller. I have to pay for all of this first and then shipping costs. Bob called me today. He has left the company but works one day a week to help the remaining staff finish the cars that have been ordered. Maybe Levin is a crook, I don't know; but Bob has always been straight. I just can't believe everyone is dishonest. I know all of us are in a real mess across this country. We need to keep trying and hopefully we will climb out of this disaster to a better life. Greedy men are everywhere; just look to the Gulf of Mexico. Greed left this mess like many others around the world. We are still lucky to live in America.

Just my opinion, but I would be going out there and picking up what is completed or arranging with a shipper to do it.....before the doors are locked.

Very good advice. Once those doors are closed you're just another creditor and you'll take your place in line just like the rest of the screwed customers. Right after the bank and other major creditors that is.
