Very interesting reading here gentlemen! I have some first hand knowledge of Misfit Mike and his merry gang of Hoodlums.

I have tried to help Mike out in the past after listening to his whining and crying about money woes and have seen his thievery first hand.

I have seen the "engine re-build in a spray can".........
I have seen the razzle-dazzle parts shuffle with customers parts..........I have seen the sale of customers cars without their knowledge and without recieving the proceeds from those sales........

I have heard every story that has come out of Miles mouth and I do not believe a word he says.............
I saw the old Ford Pick up truck with the so-called re-built engine and know that it was not re-built.........

I saw the Caddilac with the so-called engine re-biuld.....NOT!I was going to install a set of headers on a late model Camaro there, but Mike had some cheap piece of crap headers that he wanted me to install by drilling holes in them and welding the O2 sensor in them..........

You folks might want to ask Ron at Hudson Auto Salvage about Mike...........You also might want to talk to Ed at Accurate Machine Shop about Mike.........The list of injured parties goes on and on..........

All True!

AUTHOR: Danielle P - ()

I worked there at the shop back during this time and I also attempted to purchase a car from Mike during this time as well.. I personally watched him try to switch out one of my motors and only after I showed him I had the engine numbers wrote down it was then he apologized and admitted he had sold my motor "by mistake" and would have to replace it for me..  I got another motor but it was nothing like what I had taken in.

I also purchased a 1970 Nova from Mike and he kept telling me he had to wait for the title to clear, then there was a problem with the title but he was getting it fixed.. Come to find out he didnt even own this car he had just sold me for $8000. The real owner came in one day while I was loading it up on my trailer and asked me what was going on. The SH*T hit the fan. The owner of car went after Mike asking what the hell was going on and then stormed off. I then found out the truth and still took the Nova out of the shop but also called the sheriffs out and they instructed Mike to produce a title within 4 hours or he would be arresting someone for title fraud. Well I do not know how he did it but Mike did get me the title but then instructed me to never come back.. Treating me as if I was the one for doing something wrong because I wanted the title to a car I had paid $8000 for? It was not like I ever wanted to come back anyway, but I was just shocked he thought I would ever want to come back there after all the BS that had went on.

While I worked there I watched him put carbs in the parts cleaner and blow them off and tell the customers they were rebuilt. I watched him pressure wash blocks and heads, spray paint them and then tell the customers they were rebuilt. I could not believe the nerve this guy had and what he would attempt to get away with.

I was also there when the Ford truck/over heating situation was going on. He had told the guy he rebuilt the engine in this truck (never happened) and then it kept over heating. When the guy complained Mike told him to bring it back to the shop and Mike just left it sit there for months until he finally called and reported the truck abandoned and had it towed off. The owner came by, seen the truck was gone and Mike told him he had no idea what happened to it.. Mike is simply a crook. No real automotive experience, no honor in anything he does and if you give him the chance he will take advantage of any situation that he can! 

Mike was always being served with notices to go to court. Sued by everyone he is involved with. Cannot set up an account with anyone anymore because he has failed to pay for anything he ever charged. Not a reputable person or business and from what I was told it finally caught up with him and he got what he deserved!
