I want everybody to know about Vincent J Malavolta of Long Island Performance - AKA West Coast Performance in Hernando - and AKA Antiques and Outlawz.  I hired him to build me a BBC motor for my Chevelle in July of 2016 having known him thru a work aquiantence.  He represented himself as a legit company that specialized in engine building.  Being a mechanic myself, i figured that nothing could go wrong if I was looking over his shoulder thru the build.  I agreed to give him 7500.00 for a deposit on a 9000 dollar motor that would be done in one month.  As soon as I handed him the cash he was already in route to move to Ocala and start another entity as Long Island Performace was at the end of its road with scamming customers.

He would not tell me specifics of my build when I asked, not even the cubic Inch of the motor.  When I gave him payment of the deposit, he gave me a recepit from a company I had never heard of. [continued below]....

.....  I researched this company Antiques and Outlaws to find it was dissolved in 2005.  Long Island was dissolved in 2011.  West Coast does not have a tax ID#.  Great, now I knew i was in trouble.  A month and a half of lies and BS passed.  I knew that I was getting screwed so I asked for my money back and offered to pay for any parts or labor that he had incurred.  There were none.  He spent my money before he even had it.  He grew very belligerent and disrespectful.  He always said he would return my money but it did not happen.  I got police involved and any other agency I could think of.  This went of for a few months then he changed his number.

Thru comments on social media I was contacted by others that were defrauded and got his new number that was an Ocala area code.  I was upset and at this point he admitted to "Losing" My money, another lie but we were making progress.  He has made several payments of 300 here and there but I have to hound him every month and I get every excuse of why he cannot pay.  He told me to "F" off this week when I refused to change my BBB complaint and also bad reviews on the web.  He threatened to stop paying if I did not remove them as it was hurting his hustle.

Bottom line is that this guy is well known in the auto world as a scammer that does not do his own work.  He will take your car to another shop and have them do the work all the while without your knowledge.  I know this is true from two legit shops in south florida.  One the police had to get involved as the sub shop was not paid for their services and the owner wanted his car.  I have never seen somebody that can lie as much as this guy. 

It is 13 moths later and I have received a painful 1800 back.  At this rate it will be 4 more years of having to deal with this guy.  Dont be fooled by his tactics and by all means stay away.  There are plenty of decent people that can actually do this work.  He is as deceptive as one can be and you will have no recourse for when he pulls a fast one on you as the only thing he is well versed in is fraud and getting away with it.  He knows the system and is working it to his advantage.

Rich or Richard, it seems that you want to continue these childish behaviors’ on this website that has no professional standards and allows for this to continue. You post inaccurate information and all of these attachments in hopes to continue these disparaging remarks and now you want to walk them back and say you didn’t write the last post. Anybody that can read… will see the similarities in how you write and use a specific wording, but this doesn’t even matter anymore. You’re angry because you didn’t take enough time and speak directly early on with my brother and went to the Court and yes, they granted you relief in a Judgment and that’s all it was as the Court doesn’t force any collections’ and you’re in the same position you’ve always been as any Judgement only has a file life of a few years and then drops off, so you rather do this online and nobody really reads this website, but you, West Coast Performance remains the very best in the business with a solid reputation and it’s referral source intact. Not much more to say as this is redundant, but I’ll continue as long as needed and keep the very best in customer postings out front of how West Coast Performance customers really feel and appreciate the work being done by Vincent Malavolta. These can be found on Google as well.   5.0 13 reviews Ralph Roth 3 reviews · 7 photos 2 weeks ago- I would like to thank Vince at West Coast Performance. Who I met via internet.

Vincent has been steadfast for over 40 years of his life and continually learning through the trades, vocational schooling and the best educations of all "hands on". Vincent's drive and attitude towards building the very best in class in the custom sense from standard to the highest in performance auto-engineering are not built in my view, but are manufactured with his own brand of his own exquisite styles, look and feel with nothing but the very best in outcomes for the customers and he has many and too numerous to count over many years, so in my view... Vincent has and is the "Excellence of Execution" in the world of High Performance Auto Engineering and I couldn't be more proud of him. I think everyone knows that being in any business with a main focus on providing the customer with the very best service at the most affordable costs in today’s economics are hard to do, but my brother has never lost focus of those main points as that allows for continued repeat business and a solid referral pattern for new business, but we live in the world of we can't please everyone as in this case of Richard Magner and this Ripoff Report. Richard failed to ask the most appropriate questions at the time of service and failed to understand contractually on what he was signing, so he now takes to creating false online reviews in an effort to disparage my brothers services and this couldn't further from the truth and I encourage everyone… not to pay any attention. West Coast Performance continues to drive the very best in quality for the customers and the surrounding communities as he has the best in class service, diagnostic equipment, full-line of service equipment for all makes and models and a solid procurement process in making sure he continually has all of the best parts available at those time(s) of service. I couldn't be more proud of my brother and we look forward to his continued success...

Pay you in blood

AUTHOR: Vincent - (United States)

POSTED: Sunday, February 10, 2019

Richard you should have kept on the right path. I paid what I owed and would have continued as I said to shake and move on but your Internet warrior skills have cost you . Even if I want to even if we restructure a schedule it's seems to late. Your slade and defamation have cause physical  and emotional damages. This your proud of but you can't undo what you did. This would have been put to bed long ago. If I wanted to a gangster I could have put everything in everyone less name like all the rest and hide but I didn't hide because I was not trying to be anything but a fresh start while taking care of old business. You f------that up and you went to far. It don't effect me you can cross my name on here every way possible. 

Here's my solution you remove every thing off here I will pay you 8000.00 but you cant. Issue an apology but you did to much damage. 

FYI STOP SAYING I DON'T DO MY OWN WORK THOSE 5 STAR PEOPLE WERE AT MY SHOP WATCH ME FROM FRONT TO BACK THEN RUN JUST LIKE THE 100 ENGINES I DID IN OAKLAND.

If I choose I will do so or I will keep going. There's problems in your daddy's business and every business. I'm going to let you slide dog. Lol

 For the record I did not write the last post. Seems like there are other fans. It is true I have never said a word about his mother. It’s a deflection. I have also clearly been threatened as everybody can see below. Take this as a record to law enforcement in the event somebody tries to do something to me or my family.

Just pay what you owe.

AUTHOR: RM - (United States)

POSTED: Sunday, February 10, 2019

Vincent Malavolta and West Coast Performance continue this online back and forth as a deflection away from the truth that he failed to show-up for a lawsuit filed in Broward County and lost. He now owes $ 5000.00 plus dollars and earning court ordered interest every day. I think that West Coast Performance should do the honorable thing and settle this, but either way I will collect as this public record blocks him from doing anything that requires any credit and my guess is he has none, so 5k will soon be 6k and on and on.

 Why Vincent Malavolta continues to mention his deceased mother, I have no idea and she must be rolling over with disgust about having a son the commits fraud. He now brings big brother into this and we know who he is and that he’s connected out of Chicago, but our problem is with Vincent Malavolta and if big brother is so sensitive about mommy, he needs big boy pants not panties. It’s our time and just be patient as West Coast Performance will soon be closed and out of business for good and the list of legal battles are getting bigger every day.

As I said that’s what’s currently owed and will never go away and we’ll collect with hug interest earned. For all of the current victims, I would go to Broward County Court records and print a copy of the lawsuit and use that as Vincent Malavolta’s continued fraud and theft.

Slander and defamation

AUTHOR: Vincent - (United States)

POSTED: Saturday, February 09, 2019

Again  you were receiving money and would have been fine but you choose to be a tough guy. You shot your mouth off and I responded to your disrespectful napolian complex. I had no intention of no completing my repayment to you. Your slander and outright defamation has caused damage and that's what you wanted so you got it. You should of shut up while you were ahead no you owe me hundreds of thousands in damages but we will get to that soon enough. I'm going nowhere for Noone and closing will never happen . You tried to make it difficult but I perservere. THE LIES YOU KEEP SPITTING OUT THAT I DON'T DO MY OWN WORK AND WE'LL THERE'S 1300 PICS AND VIDEOS  OF ME DOING MY WOrK AND EVERYONE hears MY WORK TESTED AND RUNNING. RICHARD FIND A NEW HOBBY I WILL SEE YOU SOON. A DOLLAR IS A PAYMENT IF YOU AGREE OR NOT I OWE A DOLLAR LESS. I NOTICED YOU COVERED YOUR SIGNATURE AKNOWLEGING ALL THE THINGS YOU SAID YOU NEVER SAW OR I NEVER TOLD YOU WAS A LIE. YOU COULD HAVE SIGNED A NAPKIN THAT'S JUSTIFICATION OF PROOF. YOU SIGNED A OLD RECEIPT AKA WORK ORDER. YOU NEW I WAS MOVING AND NEW I WAS TRYING TO HELP YOU BUT YOU SAW AN OPPORTUNITY TO JAM ME. YOU TOOK ADVANTAGE OF MY MOVING AND STARTED THIS SO HERE WE ARE. I TRIED TO BE NICE ACCOMMODATING YOU THE BEST WAY BUT YOU TALKED THE TOUGH GUY TALK.

YOU WOULD BE LONG TIME FINISHED SHOOK HANDS AND GONE ON YOUR WAY. I HOPE YOUR NEVER IN A FAMILY CITATION THAT CHANGES YOUR LIFE OUTCOME AS DID MINE. I WOULD DO IT ALL AGAIN WITH A FEW DIFFERENT CHANGES.  I was flying blind trying help my mom's tremendous struggles and I don't apologize for that. I do feel bad and apologized numerous times for my unscripted move but everyone new 2 years earlier I was going to move. Keep up the good work may allah bless your entire family. Alu akbar malakim

Funny how all my good buddies that eat drank spent my money over the years all turn like rat finks low rent second turn coats. I was the pope I alone supported many black white Hati an and different people and every last one knows the truth but that's the way of the streets. Everyone wanted to be me but Noone could so they turn rat scumbags when the skipper steps dow. Including machinist parts stores individuals that eat at Flanagan every day on my dime. I fed the masses black white or green. I'm good and FYI there still cling to get me to build them fast clean maticulous engines. Too much proof to disagree. Richie well wishes to you and your family once again

FYI funny how they love you when they eat steaks and wings and beer go racing and I pay for truck fuel entry then Ihop but that's how you keep your crew from mutiny. I expect nothing less but they never tell you I went to corrections and put money in there commissary or visited there dieing mother in North Broward general. You see I supported everyone and I mean everyone. All that bull ----- is all good . I did what I could my mom took priority be careful about my mom my brother is more inclined to be sensitive about her. You want to talk turkey then be a man call like a man. I could of hid everything like a true G But I took it the right way. Don't underestimate me rich I choose to be humble that's not my nature.

2/1/2019 follow-up rebuttal

AUTHOR: John - (United States)

POSTED: Saturday, February 02, 2019

February 1st, 2019   Richard, as I read this January 31st rebuttal from you, I must again go on the record and correct all of what you’ve written and its being done by you in an effort to find those people out in the internet world to join you in this frivolous online diatribe of false information against my brother and nothing that was said to you was in any-way Slanderous towards you, but rather your continued Cyber-Stalking and in basic terms Harassment and I’ll refer you back to my January 25th rebuttal and I outlined in the most professional commentary as I could and included the Florida Statute for a reference point, but it appears that you have trouble either reading or understanding the outline. I’m surprised, if you had any family members that are Lawyers, I would only assume that they would have offered you some Counsel on not carrying on with this type of behaviors, so I can tell you that nobody is buying what you’re trying to sell over the internet.  

The most common practice in today’s world is texting and or email as my brother and I do it, so this claim that you have hundreds of text messages is false as you have a few as that’s not uncommon and admitting to any guilt is in your mind, but not in the reality of this frivolous claim of yours. These attachments you included are in part manufactured (verbally) by you and the attachments are only part in parcel of the total conversations. The business document used and that’s what it was… only to give you some sense of price in what you were asking for and was only for providing some numbers, it offered no delivery dates or a breakdown of parts needed or anything else.

You have no understanding contractually or what a contract does or its use of appropriate language and you indicated that this is what you do for a living, well I feel sorry for any customers or company that depends on the review and or analysis of any contract, by you.   Antiques and Outlaws "was” a viable Florida Corporation ( years ago ) and my brothers decision to consolidate and close this and an effort from you to use that as a negative action is just your continued false commentary and what’s really funny and I quote, I Richard Magner built multiple cars, motors from the ground up since the age of 13 and you included that other shops built you motors and you’re well aware of the process.

Let me tell you Richard… that if all of what you outlined is true and you did all of that for yourself, why would you look for WCP and Vincent to build you anything, I’ll tell you why and you are a fabricator and you came to my brother… because of his successful reputation and he’s the best in the business. I am not going to argue any point of attachments as this case is closed officially and I need to only set the record straight for good honest facts.

  My brother’s choice for a name change was personal and was many years ago and nothing to do with business whatsoever and it was about taking his mothers maiden name and keeping the family heritage and her name alive, so you do a poor job at understanding the facts, but I’m not surprised at all.   Let me close as this is my last rebuttal as I think the public now sees who you are and what you are attempting and Richard, to reaffirm for you again that West Coast Performance and Founder, Vincent Malavolta are the very best in the business of High Performance Automotive Engineering and the list of customers and great reviews are too numerous to count and they speak for themselves.

Let me now address the newest comment from report number: 1392001 below... Richard this is what happens when people like you try and use these types of websites to make a case out of no case at all. I would say that this Collections Guy either knows you personally and you are trying another tactical move or he's just trolling for business, but the giveaway is and look at the information he left i.e. no company name, no full-name, but only Joe with a Texas phone number and he's willing to as I read... do all that for a no collections % or no charge rate... wow... Joe must be a real nice guy or willing to work for nothing. Actually his name is Joe Shaffer ( my spelling could be off ) and if I wanted to waste anymore time, I'd locate his address and file a much needed compliant. Talk about stooping to a new low Richard and I'll say this again, Richard... the case is officially closed and stop obsessing. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Collections Guy AUTHOR: Joe - (United States) SUBMITTED: Friday, February 01, 2019 I am very familiar with your industry, and know what you are up against when collecting and the best possible strategies to collect your money.

  If anybody has been bullied and slandered it is myself. I welcome any legal action from you, it’s not slander if it’s true. I would love a judge to see what I have been thru and you know that you would be the one in trouble. Mr Amato and yourself are currently guilty of slander in this column alone. You met my attorney brother, my sister is as well so any frivolous lawsuit will be shot down and countered.

I have hundreds of text messages from vince from day one as that was the way he communicated. Multiple admitting guilt and you know it. You claim I don’t understand contracts? Please that is my job. I am posting the said contract that is nothing more than a receipt on a defunct company letterhead that I never heard of. Antiques and Outlawz on the top just like I said in the original post.

Absolutely zero contract language. Please produce anything else that I signed, you can’t. You claim I don’t understand auto performance engineering? I have built multiple cars, motors, from the ground up since 13 years old and would put any one up against anything you have claimed to build. I have also had shops build me motors and I am well aware of the process.

I wanted a 496 or 502 hydraulic roller motor that produced 550-600 hp with edelbrock heads and forged internals. Those were the guidelines. You talked like you were Pat Musi so I let you have creative control as long as a saw what you were putting in ahead of time. When zero machine work was done in almost two months and zero parts I knew you were up to something.

You were in breach of an oral contract which is binding my friend. The 7500 I gave you was for 7k worth of parts that you showed me quickly on a jegs order in your office and we agreed on one month. Guess what, now you have a BBB complaint saying you told another victim the same thing and he still doesn’t have it done a year and change later.

That money was for my parts plus some profit for yourself, not your rent, gas, moving your shop etc. The only thing you are good at is talking, and I am only here hoping that maybe some hard working people won’t fall for your talk like I did. Yes you started paying my back close to 6 months after I asked for my money back. Couldn’t show me a single part. But the payments were far and few and when I wouldn’t change my reviews is when the money stopped.

I am attaching a text to that effect also. This is my last post. Anybody who reads this and your insane babble below can make their own decision.

Closing statement

AUTHOR: Vincent - (United States)

POSTED: Tuesday, January 29, 2019

It's a shame that rich couldn't just receive his money and complete the transaction. My name is legally mine. We are Europeans by way of italy. I jumped into a family Dinamic I was not prepared for. Things happened I chose to help my mom 82 years old get to the doctor. Go shopping dentist visits, surgeons,visits and drive to Moffett cancer center and back to my home 2 x a day driving through the night. Traveling back to south flash then back to my house then Moffett cancer center. Lawyers  and more lawyers travel more traveling. In closing rich has no right to say s**t about things he has no idea. Let's see him do what I did including hospice and in home hospice nursing. Radiation burns and treatment travel more travel. Cleaning open wounds and dressings as well as administering class 4 narcotics and sitting up while your mother screams in agony. For that rich f---you I tried being nice and the rest is history I didn't like who she was but it was my duty to make sure she wasn't being abused by another cybling. If I had to do it over I would. Can't wait until it's your turn only then you will know the rediculous situation you have entered into and can't go home.

I've known Vincent Malavolta for over 50 years now as he's my brother and what I can say... he's had a love for the auto-industry and all of the mechanical aspects of the motor in all of its forms for long as I can remember. Vincent has been steadfast for over 40 years of his life and continually learning through the trades, vocational schooling and the best educations of all “hands on".

Vincent's drive and attitude towards building the very best in class in the custom sense from standard to the highest in performance auto-engineering are not built in my view, but are manufactured with his own brand of his own exquisite styles, look and feel with nothing but the very best in outcomes for the customers and he has many or too numerous to count over many years, so in my view... Vincent is the "Excellence of Execution" in the world of High Performance Auto -Engineering and I couldn't be more proud of him.

I think everyone knows that being in any business with a main focus on providing the customer with the very best service at the most affordable costs in today’s economics are hard to do, but my brother has never lost focus of those main points as that allows for continued repeat business and a solid referral pattern for new business, but we live in the world of we can't please everyone as in this case of Richard Magner and this Ripoff Report. Richard failed to ask the most appropriate questions at the time of service and failed to understand contractually on what he was signing, so he now takes to creating false online reviews in an effort to disparage my brothers services and this couldn't further from the truth and I encourage everyone… not to pay any attention.

West Coast Performance continues to drive the very best in quality for the customers and the surrounding communities as he has the best in class service, diagnostic equipment, full-line of service equipment for all makes and models and a solid procurement process in making sure he continually has all of the best parts available at those time(s) of service.

I couldn't be more proud of my brother and we look forward to his continued success...

Great Job, Vincent

Follow-up Rebuttal

I had an opportunity to review all of this continued verbal “Cyberstalking and Harassment” from Richard Magner and towards my brother… Vincent Malavolta and his business West Coast Performance, LLC as noted on a variety of internet sites and so we’re clear on what exactly Cyberstalking means by the 2018 Florida Statutes ( 748.048 ) is to engage in a course of conduct to communicate, or to cause to be communicated, words, images, or language by or through the use of electronic mail or electronic communication, directed at a specific person, causing substantial emotional distress, loss of business to that person and serving no legitimate purpose. Richard, I have no idea about what my brother’s next steps are, but if you continue this type of behavior, I would support whatever his decision is and seek the highest legal remedy to include my testimony, phone bills with your continued disturbance and complete discovery of these electronic communications. 

Richard Magner having no real understanding of the High Performance Automotive Engineering business, had a desire to have a custom motor built for him and approached my brothers company West Coast Performance and Vincent Malavolta, Principal and Founder. This came about from Vincent having a top reputation in this business and having his own business in doing these types of custom builds as he’s done for many years… Richard gave my brother his thoughts and ideas about what he wanted based on the automobile type and what the automobile could safely carry and hold as size and fit for a custom motor and my brother built a full detailed quote outlining full costs to do the build. In these types of quotes to build a high performance motor is what we call carve-outs and an example of this could be… if the existing block is used along with any salvaged parts or was this… an entire new build from the block up as this determines cost considerations. Most of these decisions come from “verbal conversations” between the shop doing the build and the customer and all of this happened during the pre-build stages with Richard Magner and now it clearly seems that Richard has no understanding of the process and out of anger… went to internet communications with disparaging comments about the shop owner Vincent Malavolta.

Additionally, Richard Magner didn’t understand and never asked follow-up questions during the build process and based on the shop and not all do the machining and or milling for high performance parts, cylinder heads, forged pistons, racing crankshafts, racing pistons, racing valve springs and the list goes on… Vincent chooses to use a second and third party vendor outside of his shop as they work in tandem - working side by side and in conjunction with the build and they are all vetted to the highest standards as his own shop and place of business.

Richard made mention of Vincent’s mother’s death in January 2015 and basically called my brother dishonest and let me confirm that Vincent having the Durable Power’s and dealing with the best decisions possible for his mother and living and running a business from Ft Lauderdale along with some very stressful sibling issues, he managed to accomplish everything involved and began his own transition into his home, family life and preparing for the grand opening of West Coast Performance in North Florida. Richard, I would be very careful about commenting about our family or what you think you know… out of anger and stupidity as it never has a good outcome.

Richard, I hope this makes you think like an adult and stop this Cyber-Harassment before it turns into something else legally for you.

Stay Clear of West Coast Performance

AUTHOR: Rich - (United States)

POSTED: Tuesday, January 22, 2019

  Your good reviews are clearly bogus most posted on the same day. You even stooped so low you have your wife leaving reviews, come on man. I state facts, everything backed by legal documents and proof. Why did you PayPal me one dollar today (see picture proof). to try to mess with me. You will be out of business soon. I feel bad for the poor guys that you try to intimidate after you screw them and there are plenty. You can’t deny that you took my cash deposit and used it for your own finances while lying to my face. You are clearly doing this now and it looks like it is already catching up to you. Luckily I can recover from my losses easily. One day you will do this to the wrong person and get what you deserve.

SEVERE SLANDER HARRASMENT DEFAMATION

AUTHOR: Vincent - (United States)

POSTED: Tuesday, January 22, 2019

This is just pure harrasment at this time. Rich is simply a child doesn't care who he hurts or does wrong. He causes damage but expects respect. Defamation slander severe defamtion. There's 40 people with high praise posting daily.

West coast has never ever worked with this person. West coast is fully vetted licensed with state number and tax id. These are just more slander and harrasment. I gave him what he's getting. He broke his contract he's lie in period. Seems he hasn't anything better to do then bust chops. Your constant harrasment caused damages you can't pay. 

you won because I wasn't waiting my time driving to mediate. Your behavior is questionable and suspect. You lied that was my rebuttal I should have done long ago. Remember I have the copy of all you say didn't happen signed by yo u. I'm done with this .

Update of claim

AUTHOR: Rich - (United States)

POSTED: Sunday, January 20, 2019

 Vince has tried to save face and file a rebuttal to another copy of this claim on this website. Thankfully Vincent Malavolta aka James Aznavorian can’t take rip-off report reviews down like he has done with every other bad review that was on the internet. He walked with 5k of my hard earned cash and has no intention of paying.

Never saw a single part. A judge awarded me $5155.00 in damages and it will just go on his pile of judgements. He is in trouble right now In citrus county doing all his old tricks. Look it up it’s public record. I have given up on trying to get my money back and hopefully karma does what it always does sooner or later.

 Jan 19,2019 Update. I never saw a cent in 2018 and was awarded a judgement for $5155.00 last year. Received nothing but headaches and he has no intention of repaying the money he took.
