Charles A.

Tom, Tracy and everyone at Vanguard Motor Sales, thank you so much for finding us this 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, she's a beautiful example of an Iconic American Muscle Car. I have to say that she is even more beautiful in person than in the photos... and I loved the photos. Through your photos, you guys at Vanguard, show the cars in such detail that a perspective customer easily gets a true sense of the car that they are looking at. Then you show us a 360° high quality video "walk around" of the car and take us for a ride in it... it is as good as being there in person. All of this is wonderful and Vanguard does such a good job showcasing each car. Because of how you show each car: outside, inside, underside customers can be sure that there are no surprises. As for your inventory... your inventory is so amazing! You have so many iconic cars to choose from. I highly recommend Vanguard to anyone who is interested in purchasing a Classic Car or a Muscle Car. In closing, I have to say that Tom and Tracy made this buying experience so easy and straight forward it was a real pleasure working with them both. Once again, thank you for parking a dream car in our driveway. When it's time to add to our collection... my wife and I will be back to Vanguard.

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.

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.

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!

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.

George Mencia

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.

Robert Starnes

My experience with Vanguard motors team was excellent. Everything was explained fully and the entire process for trading my car and getting my new car delivered was excellent. They took care of all the shipping for both vehicles and kept me apprised of the entire process throughout. My car is even nicer than it looks In the pictures and video. I would definitely do business with them again.

Daneil Fons

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.

Tyler Bass

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.

Lori Carroll

Vanguard motors delivers what they promise. The online videos are the real deal. My husband and I could not decide between 2 cars so we drove about 1300 miles round trip to test drive them both and we were certainly not disappointed. There were no surprises from what we saw online to what we witnessed in person. Owners Tommy and Jim were very helpful and Neal was one of the most knowledgeable Mopar guys we've ever met. Delivery was made as promised with our car in exact same excellent condition as we left it in the showroom. They made it possibly the easiest car buying experience we've ever had. Thanks Vanguard! We will definitely buy from you again!

Anthony Pasvantis Arizona

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!

I can't thank you and your team enough for the service you provided in helping with my purchase of this beautiful 1966 Mustang Fastback. It was a pleasure working with Tracy, Dimo and Tom. You run a first class operation!

Katie Cronk

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

Mark David

I am beyond happy with my purchase and look forward to shopping Vanguard again

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.

John Smolinski

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!

Frank & Sue Ohio

Nice people, awesome cars. They took their time to show us around their inventory. Thanks Dimo! We fell in love with a '69 Mach 1. It was worth the trip. If you get a chance stop in. Frank & Sue from Ohio
