Thank You Vanguard! We love 68 Road Runner you delivered to us. The video we saw we saw online was great and we weren't disappointed when we arrived. Greg "Hollywood" Payne did a great job going through the car with us and it made our buying decision very easy. I have given out Vanguards name to everyone and I am confident if any of them buy a car they will be pleased also. We will buy again from them.

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.

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.

I have purchased 3 vehicles from Vanguard Motors sales with Tom all I can say they are spot on with the description of the cars. It’s a pleasure doing business with them every time thank you guys for delivering my vehicle to my driveway.

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!

Just wanted to let you know I received my truck yesterday. It's AWESOME! You and Dimo were great to work with and I really appreciate the seamless experience throughout the entire process.

By far the best experience I’ve ever had purchasing a car. Tommy and Dimo were both incredibly professional, quick to answer any questions, and true enthusiasts with a passion for what they do. Them and their team made the whole process painless and I couldn’t recommend anyone but them for this type of specialty vehicle transaction.

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 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!

Jean Vineyard

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.

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!

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.

Tom, Jim and the whole staff at Van Guard Motor Sales are class acts . The inventory is top notch and the customer service is second to none . If you are in the market for a classic i recommend checking these guys out .

Robin Curtis

My husband and I visited Vanguard Motor Sales on June 22, 2019 as we had first met this fine group of people at the 2018 Barrett Jackson Car Auction in Las Vegas. They spoke of their showroom in Plymouth, MI and said we should stop by sometime. They did not disappoint. The finest selection of vehicles around! Top notch quality and top notch service! Thank you Tom for the warm reception. We WILL be back and will recommend to others!

Great guys! Our son is a future car buff and they let him spend as much time as he wanted looking at cars. They even entertained all his stories about his hot wheels that look like the cars. They also have just about anything you can imagine for those looking to buy. We are not quite there yet but will reach out to then when ready.

Jimi Varner

I can't say enough good things about Vanguard. First off, best customer service I've ever had. Follow up calls were returned immediately, and I felt both listened to & heard as a customer. This was a rare experience, and I'm grateful to have found these guys! I'll be back for more, and can't express my gratefulness enough.

Chrystal Martinez-Wesinger

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.

Richard MIller California

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!

Laurie & Don -

Our car is beautiful and I can not wait to go for a ride in it! Its so shiny and absolutely perfect! Thank you for your help and having this car. Thank you for the t-shirts as well! I will send a picture of us with the car in the future!

I would highly recommend Van Guard Motor Sales. The staff was very knowledgeable, caring and accommodating in the purchase of 1966 mustang convertible. It was a surprise Christmas present for my wife.

Reis Dempsey Florida

Vanguard Motor Sales is amazing! I called VMS and told them I wanted a classic Army Jeep. Within one day they had tracked down the vehicle and I had received pictures and information on the car I had been searching for. Transportation was arranged from Florida to Michigan efficiently and professionally. VMS has continuously checked in on the car and made sure it is running perfectly. I have had a mechanic at my house to check on a concern and I have had the car in their shop for maintenance. The customer service is impressive. Every employee is first rate whether it is on the phone or in the shop. I would not buy a car anywhere else! I always know that I will be taken care of quickly and that any work is done to the highest standards. Love my classic Jeep and VMS!

The video tour was key. They didn't just point out the best parts about the car, they also pointed out small flaws. Then when the car arrived, I was absolutely thrilled with what I got. Great company to work with. Highly recommended.

Kevin Lange

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

Peggie Waters

Vanguard Motor Sales had a vehicle I was interested in, so I made an appointment to see it. Upon arrival, we met our salesman, Dimo, who first wanted to show us the Vanguard operation. Touring the facility quickly gave me a level of confidence that this company was proud of their inventory of vehicles which all appeared to have a higher quality than other classic car shops. Dimo showed me the vehicle I was interested in; answered all my questions; and allowed me all the time I needed to inspect the car. I was never rushed to make a decision...absolutely no pressure “to buy.” It was a wonderful experience and I love my 1959 Chevy Apache panel truck. Looking forward to buying another vehicle from Vanguard that I can’t live without.
