Kevin H. Ontario

Hi Tom: Just wanted to drop you a line thanking you and the whole Vanguard team for one of my most memorable summers ever! Since my teenage years,(a long time ago) I have dreamed of owning a '69 AMX and Vanguard Motor Sales made that happen. From the technicians who certified the car for licensing here in Ontario,to the countless people that take photos when I'm fueling up,everyone is astonished at this vehicle's pristine condition.You are all to be commended for selecting such excellent classic examples of American muscle to sell! I truly enjoyed cruising this summer watching and listening to reactions everywhere we went,never hesitating to recommend your dealership and its website.We are quickly approaching "bedtime" here for the "X" but I'm looking foward to spring and many more miles. All the best to everyone in Plymouth,yours truly;Kevin H.

I want to thank Vanguard Motor for not only getting me a bitchin car, my 72’ Olds 442, but also making it super easy. Tom was great making the deal and then dealing with Tracy was a great experience. In a world where customer service is horrendous, she was super responsive and did everything to make it all happen smoothly. The best! I never leave reviews but wanted to say thanks to Tom Tracy and the Vanguard Team!

This one of the best decision I've made when purchasing car. I've been on this for a year and a half. This is my dream, and I had many thanks for Vanguard Motor Sales. Thanks, Tom, Greg, Neil, and Tracy for putting my dream in my driveway.

Ryan Marcus New York

I recently purchased a 1965 Mustang from Vanguard. I did not have the opportunity to fly to Plymouth to inspect the car, which is always a risk. I did a thorough review of Vanguard online and saw that the reputation from current/former customers was pretty good, and figured they must be doing something right as a seller. Upon delivery of the car, I was very happy with the condition. It was described exactly how it was. There was a small oversight (small pen mark on passenger seat) which I addressed to Tom. His immediate response was, if you cant get it out....get the seat redone and we will pay for it. I was in shock. Perhaps its because I'm from New York where most dealers would tell you to F*** yourself post purchase, but that certainly wasn't the case with Tom and his team. Additionally, upon having the vehicle for about a week, and driving it locally, I noticed that the carburator was struggling to receive gas from the fuel pump. After calling a mechanic in, it was decided that both the carb and the fuel pump should be replaced (both were in good condition, but were malfunctioning) upon speaking with Tom, again his response was, get an estimate and send us the bill. Folks, this is unparalleled customer service. I was NOT expecting that response (I actually wasnt even calling to ask him to pay for it) but the offer was accepted. The guys at Vanguard are unbelievable. I would without a shadow of a doubt purchase from these guys again. I cant tell you how happy I am with the responsiveness and willing to make things "perfect" for me. I purchased this car for my father (who has stage 4 cancer) and wanted him to enjoy driving a classic while he still has his health. Without Tom and his crew, and their willingness to go above and beyond..This is now possible. Thank you guys for everything you have done. My next purchase will be a Bel Air from you.. And this time, I will be less aggressive in negotiating a price, and let you make some money back. If there was 6 stars to give on reviews, I would.

Had an old school hot rod that I wanted to get rid of, there was no market for it where I lived. I searched for places that specialize in cars of this type. That’s when I came across Vanguard. I called them and explained my situation, sent them some pictures and they offered to buy it. They sent a buyer to look at the car, we both settled on a price that worked for both parties. A couple of days later they had a trailer there to pick it up. One I got them the title, I got the funds we agreed upon. Very good communication, and nice people to work with. Would definitely recommend them!

Mark David

My experience at Vanguard Motor was incredible! My phone calls and questions were answered promptly and professionally. I scheduled my visit to the showroom and the entire Vanguard team treated me amazing!!! It was my desire to purchase from my birth year a 1969 Ford Mustang Fastback GT R-CODE. I am beyond happy with my purchase and look forward to shopping Vanguard again

Rick Fearn

Some minor repairs were necessary to the car after delivery and Greg took care of the cost immediately. I commend your company for having such good customer relations!

Donald Stork Michigan

I have been living in Plymouth MI for 57 years and never heard about Vanguard Motor Sales. I stopped by one month ago and walked out as a proud owner of a 1971 Chevolet Chevele, she is a beautiful. My experience with Vanguard from start to finish was excellent. I dealt with Dimo and Jenifer and cant say enough about them and the hole staff. Thanks Vanguard and look forward to my next purchase. Don Stork

Marty Abrams Michigan

Amazing place!! What a showroom! And wait until you see the cars they keep in storage. My Mustang was even nicer than they had described online. The pictures did not do it justice. If you are new to the hobby, you have to check this place out. I learned so much and the salesperson gave me his card so I could call with any questions. You don't invest in a classic car every day, and I am glad I can call or even visit them as they are just 20 minutes away.

Greg Gore North Carolina

Hello, I want share with everyone a text I sent to Tom at Vanguard Motor Sales in Plymouth MI. "Hello Tom all three cars made it safely to my home (in NC) this afternoon. My friend and I have been in my garage until 9:30 tonight admiring some incredible Vanguard classic cars! They are all truly excellent and I really appreciate everything you did throughout the entire process. Thank you Jim, Greg, Tracy and everyone at Vanguard Motor Sales, you guys are the best and I'm another customer for life. Well Done! If anyone is considering a classic collectable car or truck you owe it to yourself to call Vanguard. Thank you, Greg Gore

I've been following Vanguard Motor Sales for the past 3 years. Watch them online like my favorite t.v. show. Recently I purchased the most beautiful 67 Camaro SS with RS rally stripes (mountain green, rotisserie restored...dressed to the nines) with a 396ci and demon carb. Yes, I'm extremely proud. I looked all over the country for this car, and located a few that were very nicely restored and drivable machines. Thing is, I couldn't trust the sellers. I always knew that if I were to purchase a classic, it would come from Vanguard. Why, because I vetted this company for 3 years while following the; as well, I am a board member of the Better Business Bureau, and as a board director that monitors ethical and unethical activity, I knew through my own internal research, that Vanguard is without question the most trusted and professional classic dealer in the country. For future buyers, the sale doesn't end when they park the car in your driveway; Tom is there for you with answers to your questions 24/7....just like what you hear in their videos. Can't say enough about these guys. To the Vanguard Family, thank you for continued ethical and honest behavior - I am extremely proud to say that I am a buyer of a Vanguard Motor Sales muscle car. I want everyone to know this - I am posting this message on Vanguard's FB page because I know the car business, and you deserve the exact same service I received from Tom and his staff. - Kevin

My experience with Vanguard Auto Sales was incredible. This was my first experience with online auto sales and I found the people at Vanguard to be very knowledgeable and informed with every aspect of the process. They are a brick and mortar business who still take pride in customer service and they hold themselves accountable for the product they send out the door. I will definitely use Vanguard next time I'm looking for a quality classic car.

Cliff Anderson

Very happy with my Hellcat! These guys were very easy to deal with and they made the entire transaction as smooth as possible. The delivery guy stayed in touch with me and was very professional. Definitely planning on doing business with Vanguard again. Thanks!

Mike Zurlo

It’s always hit or miss when purchasing a car on line and you really don’t know what you’re going to end up with once it delivered. Vanguard has taken it to a new level whereas they provide as much detail they can in video, photos and history of the car so that the buyer can make an informed decision for purchasing. Vanguard sales team was professional, helpful and easy to work with. The only downside I experienced was slow delivery but overall great job. This was my first purchase with Vanguard and planning on another in the near future

My Road Runner arrived yesterday and now is parked in my drive way (actually under a cover in my garage).. Want to say how happy I am to have the car home and how impressed I am with the car and the people at Vanguard.. This car is more than a dream to me, since I had one of these in 1969 new, its more a lifetime achievement award.. Finding these type of cars (not projects) is difficult and time consuming. Finally taking the time to visit your dealership was a once in a lifetime choice for me. Having Greg walk up and ask what car I came to look at just as I walked in, to Neal giving me my Vanguard T-shirt and Tracy taking care of all the details was unique.. Such a relaxed experience and I truly felt like I was dealing with real “ car guys “..Neal I can’t tell you how relaxed you made me feel when you explained the car and its features to me, when the car shipped I knew it would be in great shape when it arrived because you seemed so sincere the numerous times we talked about the car.. I understand there are many people behind the scenes who worked on this car, cleaned it and made it ready, to all of you I give you my warmest thanks.. This car will continue to be well cared for and never sold.. Greg, you had a cell phone picture of you, Neal and I standing in the middle of the shop (selling Mopars) while I was there and I’d like to have it sent to me if you still have it, it was taken from the overhead camera system and really added to my experience. Where else can you go and be so relaxed and feel the sincere, personal touch? Sorry I didn’t get to meet everyone there, but from the few I did meet you all made it feel personal to me.. While these cars are investments to many its more than that to me.. I’ll visit again to say hello and thank you in person.. This car is a big deal to me, more than car shows, or cruise in’s, this car is full of memories and pride in America. American iron and true muscle. The way it should be. I can never explain how it feels to just look at this car, hear it rumble or drive it. All I can say is thanks. This is very personal to me and I can’t believe I have it home.

Dieter Mortier Belgium

Ordered my Ford mustang 1966 straight online and had it shipped to Belgium. To be honest, it is always a bit scarry to go in with blind faith but now I am the proud owner of a 1966 mustang! Thanks a mill to Tom @vanguardmotorsales and Greg for the straight honest pix and movies.

Ray Rubio New Jersey

I have been looking for a 1965 GTO for almost a year. I had used a multi-pronged search approach, including Internet for private and dealer sales, the auction circuit, and car shows. Although I owned a 65 a long time ago, I tried to obtain as much information about the car as I could, including applicable Pontiac websites and hard copy reference material. The more I learned and re-learned, the more selective I became with respect to finding the right car. My objective was to buy a runner, not a collector car. I wanted one in excellent condition with a specific color palette in mind. As the year progressed, I passed up, and missed out on a few cars that might have been a keeper, but undaunted kept the effort going. In mid November of last year, I found a web listing for 65 in the Vanguard Motor Sales website. What was interesting is that I did not recall seeing any cars listed on the Internet by this dealer. As soon as I saw the car in an enticing video presentation, I promptly placed a deposit. My son and I drove nine hours from New Jersey to Vanguard’s showroom in Plymouth, Michigan. A staff member showed us the car and allowed a floor inspection. Although I restored a Corvette and my son graduated with a degree in auto mechanics and restored a Mustang, we were instantly impressed with the car which showed better than the video. After the inspection and two test drives, we decided to purchase the car with no reservation. Tom Photsios, Vanguard owner introduced himself who made us feel welcome by engaging in a friendly and personal conversation. We asked about several minor observations gleaned during inspection that Tom indicated would be fixed at no extra charge. Delivery was arranged by Vanguard included in the purchase price, which we saw as another customer perk. Prior to delivery of the car, I received a short video from Vanguard showing the car in all its glory prior to shipment. What a surprise! Upon receipt, a short inspection revealed all the punch list items identified during the inspection were addressed. As you can see, the customer experience at Vanguard was first rate for us. Beginning with the candid web ad to delivery day, the entire experience was a pleasure. We as car enthusiasts know that any 60 year old vintage muscle car is bound to come with a few surprises, however, we are convinced the folks at Vanguard made a terrific effort to present this car factually, and in the interest of the customer. Praise and thank you to all the folks at Vanguard for a wonderful vintage car shopping experience.

I found Vanguard's site about two weeks ago and was very impressed with the quality of cars they had advertised. As luck would have it I had a business trip to Lansing today and we decided to drive over to Vanguard to check this place out. We happened to meet Tom as we walked in and were immediately welcomed in. We walked the through the entire garage area, spoke with Greg, spoke to employees, looked at cars, asked questions. I have never felt more welcomed and like family than with this group of people. I have never seen more high quality cars cars in one location that this. And Then.... We were invited to the offsite warehouse with Sammy. Speechless. We spent over an hour in this warehouse. Just two of us and Sammy. He patiently answered every question with car guy enthusiasm. We learned about their intense and thorough inspection process that accepts only the highest quality cars that makes sure that what you see is what you get. Any reservations I had about buying a site unseen car from Vanguard is gone. I can assure you that your expectations will be exceeded in every way if chose to purchase your car here. After meeting these wonderful people and spending some time here I do not have to purchase from Vanguard, I sincerely want to purchase from Vanguard.

After my first purchase, I said I would not hesitate to do business with Vanguard again. I just purchased my second 67 Chevelle in a year! As with my first purchase, I did not have the luxury of making a trip to Michigan to inspect the car so this one was also purchased sight unseen. Once again, Vanguard did not disappoint. Beautiful car and exactly what I was expecting. The video and pictures provided are spot on, very informative and well done. Thank you Vanguard!!! My wife and I now have "His and Hers" 67 Chevelles and we couldn't be happier. Merry Christmas!!!

I first met Muscle Car Greg at an Auction 2 or 3 years ago. I recognized him from his youtube videos and I had to say hi. He was very down the earth and kind for being an internet celebrity! He is truly a class act. I ended up doing some business with Vanguard later on and while hesitant; the Vanguard team treated me right and did everything they said they would. They are very professional and honest. They only buy and sell GOOD cars, which is unheard of these days. These guys are the best in the business. I would highly recommend Vanguard Motor Sales to buy or sell classic and muscle cars. Keep up the good work guys.

I had a new 1970 Z28 when I was in high school, unfortunately it was stolen about 8 months later. When I started looking for another Z28 online it was very intimidating, there are so many scams and misrepresentations when purchasing on the internet. There are not many of these cars for sale that have been fully restored, I found Vanguard Motor Sales and saw 2 beautiful cars. I contacted Tom and felt very comfortable with him, so I scheduled a trip from Tucson AZ to check out the car. The hospitality I received from being picked up at the airport, taken to our hotel, Dimo picked up the next morning to take my wife and I to there dealership. I was blown away by the whole experience and was not disappointed when I looked at the beautiful blue 1970 Z28. Of the 100 or more pictures and the video that I looked at a zillion times when I saw it in person it was even better. The quality of the restoration is second to none! Vanguard added a few things to the car before it shipped out today, I am sooo excited to receive it!!! No matter what classic car you are looking for, Vanguard Motor Sales is the place to go!

David Maher New Jersey

I purchased a car from Vanguard 4 year's ago and loved my experience. Everyone was great from the sales to the shipping. The cars they have are awesome and they stand behind each delivery. If you are looking to fill your classic car dream this is the place to come to. Thanks again everyone Dave M, NJ

Benn Gilmore

I have visited both Vanguard Motor Sales locations and been blown away by the quality of presentation of hundreds of clean vehicles that are gassed and ready for me to park in my driveway. The Keel Street showroom is a car aficionado’s dream, replete with friendly, knowledgeable people to help with getting my car to my driveway. I have traveled the world and never seen better volume and variety.

I started looking for a Cobra about a year ago, and was steered to Vanguard. I looked at several videos and countless pictures of stock vehicles and others that were sold. Finally made the decision to purchase and could not be happier with the level of service and professionalism at Vanguard. Tom, Dimo, Tracy, and Shelly made the experience very enjoyable and seamless. I was treated like family and never felt uncomfortable about any part of the transaction. Prior to receiving the vehicle I was sent a very cool video going over the car and maintenance info. What an awesome touch! My Cobra was delivered on 3/11 by Brett who is a really great guy with Muscle Car Transport. He unloaded the car and went over it with me to insure it was delivered in pristine condition. He insisted I take the car for a short ride and did a little video afterwards. An all around awesome experience from start to finish!! You can't go wrong with Vanguard. I would HIGHLY recommend them and I'll be back. Thank you all!
