Joel H...

I'm a disabled veteran awarded an 80% disability rating after retiring from the army. I spent every dime I had on a car from Volo Auto Museum after waiting two years to receive my disability payment. This was reward to myself for surviving three combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This year I had the exact same experience you had sir. I wish I had found this review sooner.

Below is an email from the owner Mr. Gram after I informed him I plan to sue for fraud if my money was not returned:

"YOU HAVE ACCUSED MYSELF AND MY COMPANY OF FRUAD. IN NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM IS THAT TRUE. WE REPRESENTED THIS CAR FAIRLY AS WE SEEN IT. FIRST OF ALL OUR PHOTOS ARE NOT TAKEN IN A WAY THAT IS DECEPTIVE. WE DID NOT RESTAMP ANY NUMBERS OR HAVE KNOWLEDGE THAT THEY WERE RESTAMPED. WE EVEN PUT THE CAR ON OUR LIFT AND TOOK PICTURES OF THE NUMBERS AND EMAILED THOSE TO YOU AT YOUR REQUEST. WE DISCLOSED TO YOU THAT THE CAR HAS HAD SHEET METAL REPLACED. WE NEVER CLAIMED GALEN PERSONNALLY INSPECTED THE CAR. JOEY CLEARLY TOLD YOU GALEN DECODED THE TAG. YOU ASKED ME TO FLY OUT AND DO A NEW APPRAISAL. THAT IS NOT A SERVICE OUR COMPANY OFFERS. YOU NEVER ONCE ASKED TO SEE AN APPRAISAL OR EVEN ASKED ABOUT THE APPRAISED VALUE BEFORE YOUR PURCHASE.
WE HAVE NO PLANS OF REFUNDING YOUR MONEY. WE DID NOT EVEN OWN THE CAR AND YOU KNEW THAT TOO.
I AM TRULY SORRY THE CAR IS NOT WHAT YOU THOUGHT IT WAS. THE ONLY THING I WILL OFFER IS TO SHIP THE CAR BACK AND WE WILL TRY TO RESELL IT.
SINCERELY
JAY GRAMS"

Every detail of your post was discovered in the car I purchased, to include the knock off replacement motor that had not so cleverly been illegally re-stamped with the wrong tools, yet listed as a numbers matching restored collector car. In the email he offers the exact same thing he did you. He offers to resell the car to someone else who doesnt know any better if I send the car back. Of course my own money would not been returned, this was only offered as a means to recoup whatever I was cheated of originally from someone else who didn't know better. These guys are a rip offs. If anyone reading this is considering buying an auto from this company have it independently inspected by a professional. They will no longer give peoples money back. People like me who have discovered they have been tricked, now are forced to sue or eat the loss of money. I hope you are still following this post Joel; I would love to get a hold of you. Here is my contact info just in case. wish me luck!

Never buy a car of this sham place. I made the mistake several years ago. They advertised a 1969 Chevelle SS396. Sent me a video, talked on the phone several times. When I got the car, it had a 1972 454 smog motor in it. When I pointed out they had it listed as authentic, it was just too bad for me. I ended up returning the car, but they made me pay the shipping both ways, like it was my mistake! They then relisted it and put in there it did not have the correct motor (still did not tell people it was the wrong year, wrong size, wrong everything). This place is a joke. Never buy their overpriced garbage. I notice now they advertise TO THE BEST OF OUR KNOWLEDGE in all their deals. Stay away for this place unless you want to get screwed over.

Great museum to look at some nice cars, prices reflect the chicago area. Some deals once in a while. Hobby shop connected is also very high priced sometimes over list on items.
