Streetbeastoptsman has not answered one technical question about the product produced by the company he works for, , or addressed any of the statements about real flaws in their product. He is , however, starting to get disrespectful and showing even more shiny cars to try to distract us from what's really going on here.

Which is exactly what a salesman would do.

Unless you start answering technical questions I am saying your presence here is to conduct "aggressive promotion" of your company's product.

Later, mikey

That's funny. First you say it is the finest product available, then you say it's up to the buyer to make it right.

Marc,

Skip the noisy feedback and answer my question. Do you guys have a delivery date on when my father's car will be ready to ship?

Jay K.

ps. The car is what you make of it, and everyone has their own ideas of right and wrong. No big deal.

Asking a manufacturers representative to address real technical questions about their product, and not just show more pictures of cars, is NOT noisy feedback.It is however what this bulliten board is about, whether you believe it or not.


And you can conduct business in the private messages, the forum is not the place to do that.

Really???? Does this little snippet sound familiar???

Have you always wanted to build a kit car? Looking for an EASY way to build a hot rod? For help in hot rod building, turn to StreetBeasts. We�re the largest provider of kit cars, offering the widest variety of products in the industry. We use an easy-to-install one-piece body to allow you to create a professional and classy kit car. These are the most inclusive kits in the marketplace. So get started on your hot rod building of a �34 Coupe, �66 Cobra, �34 Cabriolet, �33 Vicky, �55 Speedster or �41 Willys.


Oh, yea..... Its amazing what PROFESSIONAL BUILDERS can do with a POS if given enough time and money. ".....the '41 Willys built by Mark Adkins and Jim Kite of Illusions Custom Rodz....."





I totally agree that technical questions need to be answered. If not then he's just here to promote his product. Therefore:

Questions to be answered:

1. Is StreetBeast still operating under the direct supervision of the Florida Attorney General's office? If so when do you expect to have all the complaints satisfied that caused this to happen?

2. Please explain how a customer goes about replacing a fender that was damaged in an accident? How long does he have to wait for a new fender??

3. Please explain how many parts made for a 34 Ford will interchange or fit on a StreetBeast 34.

4. Please explain why your products deviate so much from the original.

5. Please explain why your marketing is so deceptive.

How's that for starters?

Centerline,

You've got no traction on points three and four. To make my point I refer you to http://ratsglassbodies.com/

They do "Fords" also that really aren't.

For your other points... carry on!

actually his points 3 and 4 do have traction.. just look at this Street Beasts Page and look where there listed as Fords '34 Ford specifically , therefor reproduction or original parts should fit a SB car. There is a real problem that arises in titiling vehicles like this.. new laws ( many states have this now ) are allowing replica vehicles to be titled in the make/ year they are replicating, problems with this are places like SB are simply modeling there bodies after the make/ year, this becomes a problem because it is not creating a replica and unless you do somthing sketchy, or title as a home built in this case, your SOL.. I know a lot of the good 'glass body companies have officially liscened products by Ford, so titiling it as a '32,'34 ford or whatever would be easy since the govt would see it as being an exact replica, that liscense information should be on the website, if it's liscensed by Ford

Matt,

I respectfully disagree with you on this and request that you post the source of your info.

Separately, per the Illinois Dept. of Transportation or IDOT, a vehicle's emissions requirements are based on the year of the motor and not the car. Trust me here, I tried to come up with all kinds of variations and combinations to get around the emissions testing!
