So, I need to ask again; If a company "might" be trying to correct some past issues, and "may" have done so, when do the car sites start giving them some slack??


Since this thread got revived in the last month or so, where are the "new" & "recent" buyers with new complaints? So far, all I have read about that is a hub had 2 bent studs, and I would think that it could have a reasonable explanation.

Just from my view as a complete outsider, I do think quite a few people just don't care for the styling or the fact that it does not have a frame that looks like a typical rod. The "hot rod/streetrod" hobby is pretty much fractured at this point in time with all the different trends.

Where are the new complaintants?
Exactly,

Dirt diggers like Jon and "Extreme Right of Center" seem focused on staying in the past. Yet, these two can't seem to move out of the past.

If that were the case, the famous John Hennessey of the Viper world would've been run outta town years ago tarred and feathered! He's since made good on a lot of deals gone bad and restored his reputation.


The year is 2008, you two historians, please join us in the present day and move forward.

Thanks,

Jay K.

ps. The lugs in the rotor were off by a 1/16th and I will be sending pics to Street Beasts for their review shortly. This rotor is supplied by an outside vendor

Second, these cars aren't for a beginner. With that said, we have an experienced builder here willing to build a car, it would be interesting to document this build in an unbiased way. Or, has this been done? He said, she said could go on for page after page, this argument is getting old. Put up or shut up time for me...
Great call. I agree. Seems to be all based on the past. It would be a great idea for someone to build a car, with an unbiased mind, and report.

So many people pound on companies with a shady past and do not see or care to see the present.

So many post opinions with absolutely no clue on the product itself, except for hearsay or "I do not like the way the 34' looks".

Who gives a rats hairy, little, *** about what someone else thinks, if they do, they need a self check.

Some people are fanatics about certain style, type, steel or fiberglass rods, that they believe all else is crap. That is their thoughts, their beliefs, their way of cars. That is o.k., we all have our opinions.

Head over to the ViperAlley. There's plenty of JH to read about and righting his wrongs.

This might not apply, but has something to do with car owner satisfaction.

I worked at several new car dealerships as a mechanic when I was young. Some fellow workers including myself, would take the attitude that the new cars at that dealership were junk. A manager/owner set us straight one day; He said "you guys only see the cars that developed a problem; you won't see the countless buyers that never had a problem"

Like I said, that may not apply here.

I am just surprised that more recent buyers have not posted here if they had a problem. Maybe they don't want others to know, or maybe they are not having major problems?

Streetbeast folks -- You say that Levin wasn't "found" guilty, and you say that "the article doesn't say anyone pled guilty". Sounds like more spin to me.

Simple question: Did Levin/CMC plead guilty? Yes or no?

Also, I've been hearing some very interesting things about the role of the Florida Better Business Bureau in the Classic Motor Carriages lawsuit.

Anything you'd like to tell us about the involvement of the BBB in this situation?

I cannot answer that question because honestly I just don't know.

Really I don't!

Do you have the judgment or a settlement in front of you?

Jon,

Simple question... What year is it?


What was the year of that case?

Your hard-on for trying to pin the judgement on StreetBeasts really doesn't bode well for the board's ability to stay impartial. Really, it doesn't.

At 31, I'd think you'd have some ability to feign impartiality.

The case is less important than the fact that, today, right now, Streetbeast people are on this site, trying to run a campaign of spin, misinformation, and deception.

Credibility and trust come from honesty. If they wanted the past to be "The Past", then they should be attempting to establish an honest relationship with the online hotrodding community.

Which, of course, they're not.

Still waiting to see if there's anything Grandpa Cobra or StreetbeastOptsMan would like to tell us about the involvement of the Florida BBB.

So far so good.

What'd you purchase from them that you require a relationship with them?

I even had to come back to this thought.

Jon,

What online relationship do you have with the very well appreciated Chip Foose or Joe vendor XYZ? We know they're good guys, but that's mostly second hand word of mouth or Magazine. Does Chip Foose thus owe you (or anyone) a relationship outside of a business transaction? No, not really.

Think about it.

These people have a company that you and I view as a "want." Not a "Need".

We don't live or die if we don't have a street rod in our garages.

What I'm saying is you need to put things in their proper perspective.

Cheers,

Jay K.

JGK95 -- my "purchases" or lack thereof, from Streetbeast, are irrelevant.

They've registered on a forum I run, and spammed a wiki article on another site that I run. Now, they're aggressively trying to mislead and spin our members.

I personally have no desire for a relationship with them. Obviously, they're trying to establish a relationship with this forum, and they're not doing it honestly.

No Jon,

You are Wrong! It's apparent you have a beef with this company and thus the negative slant towards them.

Why didn't you come out earlier and say so?

Your remarks that you claim not having a purchase with them is irrelevant is ENTIRELY My Point.

If I sold you product X and gave you post sales follow up. You'd be pleased, naturally. If then some tire kicker comes around, bombards me with barbs, rhetorical questions and insults, should I then treat them the same as I've treated a paying customer in you?

Heck no!! I, you and anyone else would tell them to take a flying *******!

Fair?


TO SUMMARIZE:

YOU and CENTERLINE have it out for Street Beasts having spent no equity with them and will continue to do for the foreseeable future based on SECOND HAND INFORMATION.

Words such as those above really don't hold much weight anymore when you haven't spent a dime to bash someone's livelyhood.

I really hope you pull back and see a different perspective. At least in you I see there's hope. I can't say anything for your counterpart.

Cheers,

Jay K.

JGK95 -- sorry you feel that way, it's unfortunate.

As a website administrator, I deal constantly with manipulation from company representatives, threat of lawsuits, and misleading spin attempts. I don't think that I need to make a purchase from them to express an opinion about them, or to prevent them from running a deceptive campaign on this website.

I would suspect that none of the newspaper reporters, television shows, or other media outlets that have blown the whistle on StreetBeasts have any financial connection to them.
