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!

Loving the 1965 Chevelle. It was everything they said great people to work with amazing cars and delivery! Thanks again Tom, Tracy and everyone at Vangaurd first class place!

Steve Lytle

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.

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, 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.

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.

Jim Ahlenslager California

Greg, Tom, Trey, Marie, and Tracy all did a fantastic job getting my dream truck to me in California. Top notch organization with incredible people and cars! Would definitely look to do business with them again.

Aaron Miller

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.

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 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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

I have yet to experience a better combination of caring classic car enthusiasts and professionalism. Both their inventory and knowledge is expansive!

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.

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.

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

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

Robert Ohio

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

If you are looking to fill your classic car dream this is the place to come to. Thanks again everyone Dave M, NJ

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!!!

Pete Carroll

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.
