I put on a different hat now.

If I was, or had been(never been either) a major supplier to them, and had tooled up to manufacture parts specific to their kit cars, I would try to market my product any way possible. Through any mainstream magazine, or whatever. This being(all speculative) of my invoices/products not being paid/sold.

I would try to keep my product availble to anyone willing to purchase it direct.

Chuck,
Thanks for the compliment. I guess I wasn't thinking clearly over the last 3 years in the fact that I forgot about this forum since I last visited it in 2005 but joined in 2004. I won't forget about it now.

I belong to a few forums out there. Two that I own and run by myself. One a town forum where I grew up and the other a Corvette forum I just started a little over a month ago.

My pleasure ffas23,

Your car turned out extremely well, good job on completing the build. I am sure many members who have similar kits could learn a lot by looking at yours.

If you have any other pics or details of your buildup it would be greatly appreciated by those in the middle of theirs. We have a project journal if you want to start one, I know time is limited but your immaculate assembly of the kit would assist many members and give others an idea of the determination and level of dedication required to complete a fiberglass kit car.

Not too mention we all love looking at pics of hotrods being built.

Guilty!

Thanks for sharing.
Chuck

Just to add a little to what Chuck said. Specifically, if you have any detailed info on work you had to do to correct problems with the assembly of the vehicle it would be helpful.

One of the big problems with Streetbeasts and all their predecessor named cars is the extremely poor instruction manual and the need to do mods to just get the thing together. How you handled that would be beneficial to any Streetbeast owners who are finding the "kit" overwhelming and troublesome, as I'm sure most do.

I'm glad you're happy with the car and for a Streetbeast/CMC/Innovative Street Machines/Fiberfab car it looks very nice....... but for the sake of people who don't want to read a book let me see if I can summarize what you said.
At the risk of getting into something I really don't want to I have to respond to this as it's been the moderators tone from day one.

First you ask for first hand experiences, then, since it doesn't say exactly what you want you feel at liberty to summarize a very well written feedback.
The you try your best to change his responses into something else.
Then put your personal dig in the end with "I'm sure most did"

Nice going, I read FF's first post yesterday afternoon and already knew how you'd respond but chose to wait and see, you did not disappoint.

Only thing I didn't see that I expected was a search of his IP address, but I'm sure you did one to verify him, am I right?

Chuck,
I have plenty of pictures from back in the early 90's that I could post once I find some time to scan them into my computer. Back then we didn't have digital camera's and some pictures where taken with a 35mm camera, those came out good. Actually 2 of the 3 pictures I show in this thread were taken with that 35mm camera but as you can see the color looks off somewhat compared to the digital picture taken in my driveway. As I mentioned I also have some pictures that may not be good enough to scan taken with one of those instant picture camera's. I also tried to document some of my build on VHS tape which I also have. That was a pain to do since I had to stop working to take movies. I am one that doesn't like to stop working so that idea didn't catch everything I did. Fire away if you have any questions in the mean time. One question from me to the MODS. Is it ok to post those pictures here in this thread or would you like me to put them elsewhere on this forum once scanned? In other words is there another thread already started with build pictures of other CMC/SB Cars being built? That I would think would be the perfect place to put mine so many can compare photo's.

I hope all of our members and guests will bear with the moderators as we thrash through the current situation. As most of you are aware, the owner of Hotrodders.Com has been sued as a result of the Wiki article which summarizes most of what has been said in this very thread

As a result of that legal action we have learned a great deal about Streetbeast. Most importantly, they will use this forum and the wiki in quite nefarious and underhanded ways in order to advance their corporation and their law suit. I think what you are seeing from the moderators is a very diligent effort to make sure that SB personnel and their associates are not attempting to manipulate or cloud the issues involved on this thread and the other threads on this forum involving the company.

We ask only for your patience. Yes, as you point out, we sometimes might be a bit quick on the trigger or appear to "research" new members in great depth. But that research has proven to be quite valuable and has uncovered numerous occasions of SB making up false screen identities in order to manipulate and/or intimidate our readers That does NOT appear to be the case here...but we still must always have our guard up.

The purpose of all moderators here is quite simple. To protect this site, our administrator, and the rights of each and every one of you to speak freely and openly as our constitution provides. We hope you can understand.

You don't need to scan them, just take a picture with your digital camera of the old photo, I do it all the time. And as for the VHS, I have taken videos off my TV with my digital camera and up loaded them onto photobucket to show them to you guys.

When it comes to anything or anyone connected with that slime ball company you bet you buns I checked. And.... you know what.. I don't care what you think of my attitude towards Streetslime. They're a predator company that enjoys screwing its customers and they will do anything to silence criticism. They deserve to be publicly chastised both harshly and often.

Chuck, I just posted over 50 pictures of my 1992 '34 CMC build earlier today in this same (Hotrodders' Lounge) section of the forum. Here is the link: CMC '34 Coupe 1992 Build

"Streetslime" is not the only preditory company to use and abuse this site.

See my post you commented in below.

What are you willing to do about that kind of scammer.

I have been reading this site for years now and presumed this guy (collectorcarsandparts) was probably safe because he was allowed to post his wares here.

His adds were taken down by moderators, but who knows how many people he screwed first.

I purchased from him because I figured he was somewhat vetted if he was allowed to post at HRBB.

I did not know his reputation until afterward.

He was on the HAMB trader board at one time too, but has since been removed. Their moderator was confident that Larry Brown has not returned, but I have no doubt that he has.

This guy has made a serious career out of stealing money from people everywhere.

Even if Streetbeasts sells a faulty product, at least they send you something. (or at least they did)





He has pages of rip off adds all over the internet and his own rip off web site.

What is to stop Streetbeasts or Larry Brown from using a dial up connection, or a different mobile connection?

Just a note to readers. Anyone who uses the B.B. to advertise or push their business or products is considered "off limits" by board rules. In certain situations it may take the moderators a few hours to catch the culprit and take down the ad or the offending link. If you happen to see one of these ads or promotions during that time frame NEVER assume they have been vetted or approved by HR.Com and that they are a legit operation. We simply don't make those sorts of determinations.

If an individual or company is discussed in a forum (good and/or bad) that is the opinion of the individual member who is posting and should be taken as exactly that. The administration of this site does not officially endorse any seller...on the forums or in the classified section.

Absolutely nothing. Streetbeast has done this here and continues to do it now. Check Streetbeast Insider's posts. He is an employee, won't admit it and either uses a Blackberry or remote connection to post so his IP doesn't match Streetbeast's corporate IP. Can we prove this? No. And that's why he's still allowed to post. But when it comes right down to it, the lawyers Jon has working on the case can subpoena that kind of information from the ISP's and use it in court. Streetbeast employees have also used proxy servers which, for the most part, are untraceable to make disruptive posts here. That is why we check anything and anyone who posts about Streetbeasts on this board.
