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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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. I was telling one of my friends that it was like shopping on Amazon. That easy. Thanks for everything and I look forward to buying my next one from you guys.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Anton Bader

It was a wonderful experience, made very easy with all questions answered on the phone real time. I think that the amount of trust I have with Tom and Greg says it all while buying from them yet a second time long distance . I sincerely appreciate and thank you all at Vanguard motors.

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!

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.

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.
