Complaint Review: Pristine Classics
Pristine Classics Classic car ripoffs! LAkeland Florida
I am not the only one, there are many who fell victim to the picasso's at Pristine motors/Lash in lakeland florida.
Subject is a 1971 lincoln advertized as perfect and pristine, yada yada.. They are a bunch of crooks. They told me the car had no rust and was a perfect example of the marque.
The roof in back was rotted out and repaired with fiberglas, covered by the vinyl top, it had been hit in the left front.
The front bumber was damaged, rear bumper ends were rusted out. Rear quarter window motors were broken. Windshield had a crack in it. Front suspension was worn out with grease everywhere.
They sprayed the bottom with undercoating on top of dirt. This is their SOP. Then painted the old steel exhaust system with silver paint to make it look good in the pictures. They spotted some of the panels, none of the paint matched. The heater fan housing was broken in half as someone tried to fix the blower motor with out trying to do it properly. Wipers dont work, bad hyd motor. Oil pan leaks. Power seats broken, all motors rusted out transmission whines. Should I go on.....
In short, this car was a RAT that was patched up and had a good photographer. My fault is I believed their BS and photos. Never buy site unseen, my big mistake. I have never seen the level of deception on a car that these folks stooped to. If I lived in Florida, they would have got it back and I would have sued them. Im still thinking about it. I have everything documented. BEware of this outfit...
