1968 Ford Mustang Fastback Testimonial Brian buys a Mustang

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
