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!

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.

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

Just wanted to let you know that Neal and the guys in the shop did a great job on the car. I also wanted to tell you how much it means to me and my family. You went above and beyond what another dealer would have done to make us happy with our muscle car investment. I will buy from you again and tell all my friends to buy a car from you. In closing, I just want to say thanks to everyone at Vanguard. From Rob in Ohio, a customer for life.

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.

1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Testimonial Brad from Utah
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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Dirk & jenna mowen

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!!!

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.

Frankie Daoud

The best company when it comes to buying a old school. My family has been coming here for years. Tommy and staff are the best you will ever deal with. No bs at all, they dont waste your time. All there vehicles are so clean and they are so professional. Thanks Vanguard for my dads dream car. God bless you all.

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.

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 .

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!

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.
