It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

This still does not explain the deletion of information in the WIKI.

Can you explain why?

Doing this will bring some "credibility" to your post.

I do not know if there is truth in statement # 1 and statement # 2
... But statement # 3 and # 4 ... is the truth

All joking aside this thread could save a bunch of people some serious money and a lot of headaches.

I was a little bored today so decided to do a little research. According to Florida Department of State Division of Corporations records George Levin and/or Gayla Sue Levin (presumably his wife since the home address is the same) are listed as the principal owner, registered agent, or principal board member for well over 25 corporations, LLC's, or LTD companies.

To include such names as:

Fiberfab International Inc.
Car Care Management Services Inc.
Vintage Instruments Inc.
Vintage Reproductions Inc.
Classic Motor Carriages Leasing Co. Inc.
Classic Motor Carriages Inc.
GGL Assembly Company Inc.
Classic Motor Carriages International Inc.
Southeastern Classic Cars Inc.
Classic Motor Coaches Inc.
Innovative Street Machines Inc.
Hollywood Rod and Custom Inc.
Auto Resolution Inc.
Auto Resolution Ltd. (the company who is currently doing business under the factious name of Street Beasts.)

Now I understand why someone would want to incorporate but there is really something fishy about someone who is involved with so many active or defunct entities as those above, and I only listed the automotive related ones.

Heres a Press release from a Real swanky Advertising agency Streetbeast hired to revamp the advertising , but after the Company found out about their Shady dealings ,walked away:

Kit Car Manufacturer, StreetBeasts, Aligns With Design Gurus At FRANK.

StreetBeasts, one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of automotive replica cars, has contracted
FRANK. to revamp their company brochure and parts catalogue.

As a full-service, boutique, integrated agency which offers offline + online marketing services
through the use of conventional and non-conventional advertising methods in traditional and non-
traditional media forms, Frank Worldwide (aka FRANK. period intended!), is the “go-to” creative “hot
shop” for some of the world’s largest and most prestigious ad agencies. In addition to providing all
the print collateral for Volkswagen since 2005 in collaboration with Crispin Porter + Bogusky (the
agency of record), some of their current assignments include the complete rebranding of American
Express OPEN (also in collaboration with CP+B www.cpbgroup.com) and the complete renaming,
rebranding and repackaging of Minute Maid’s Enhanced Juices-a division of Coca-Cola (in
collaboration with DONER www.donerus.com -the largest independent advertising agency in the
world).

Imagine cruising down US-1, top down, hair blowing with 500 roaring ponies under the hood. You
pull up to the next red light and out of nowhere comes a voice of shear excitement and curiosity,
“Nice ride!” Where’d you get it?” And you coolly reply, “I built it myself!” Yep, it’s a hot “ride” indeed!
With your choice of hot “rods” from the best of the 30’s, 40’s and 60’s in six breathtaking models…
what are you waiting for?

StreetBeasts has been rolling out gassers from their South Florida location for over 30 years. Offering
the finest replicars™ on the market, FRANK. is proud to roll up in style with StreetBeasts. For more
information on how you can get your hands on the best kit car on the market, checkout
www.streetbeasts.com.

What a JOke!!!!

Thank you for explaining your actions.

I do believe it was an accident, and welcome to Hotrodders

I personally believe you are credible.

Your "Inside" information is invaluable to us, and our goal to inform all of the hotrodder's, and general public in the world, as we can.

Just post, and let the Mod's, or Jon(the administrator), edit the WIKI.

So much so that personally, I would be cautious about the recent entry of SB Insider into the discussion. Some of his/her statements don't quite add up. For example, the claim that "100's" of SB workers were laid off.

If we take prior SB claims as accurate, SB was producing about 50 kits per month prior to these layoffs. After the layoffs, according to Insider, they are producing 5-7 kits per month. Doing some quick math, Insider is saying they can currently produce 7 kits a month with a total of 7 workers. If we apply that same worker-to-kit ratio, then prior to the layoffs SB would have had a total of 50 production workers. (Roughly on kit per month per worker.) So why would there have been "hundreds" of workers on the payroll to produce just 50 kits?

The other immediate problem is that one of our own member saw first hand the factory operation (seemed to be in full production) at the period in time Insider says all the cars were being made somewhere else. This needs some clarification.

These and other discrepancies might all have logical explanations. But until there is some clarity I would advise against repeating these claims or taking them as gospel. I hope Insider understands that even if he's on the up and up, due caution needs to shown here.
