Powerhouse Cars International Tom Harting Total Misrepresentation and Failure to Execute on Agreements Dayton Ohio
In December of 2013 I enquired about a vehicle that was listed at the Website powerhousecarsint.com and after two months of negotiation and assurance from the supposed "Business Owner" I can now unfortunately attest to this being the most crooked outfit I have dealt with since buying my first car in 1959...yes...1959.
Here are the quick facts (for those how do not want to read the details).
Do not let his website fool you.
The transaction in question involved a car on Consignment to Mr. Harting and represented by Mr. Harting with a glowing discripton and somewhat shoddy photography on the website that was uncovered in a google search for a particular type of hotrod.
The first indicaiton that this was going to go badly was the mileage on the car. On the website the car was represented as having 2202 miles on the odometer. When it arrived it had 5503.
In that I have been buying, selling and trading cars with other collectors over the years I thought Mr. Harting was a "car guy" and one who could be trusted. On numberous occasions I asked him the following questions:
So my findings:
I traded a pristine 1940 Ford that was totally perfect and professionally inspected and documented. I gave the owner CASH on delivery for delivery fees, mileage, the broker fee to Powerhouse cars and for the cash difference.
So there you have it and with the power of social media I will do everything in my Power to insure none of my brothers and sisters in the car hobby are riped off. Maybe he needs to change the name to PowerHOSING Cars?
Again, beware. This guy is a sham.
