They call you tell you that you are approved and when you get there it’s a lie.i would waste my time here no more nor tell no one to go here
I have a history with Performance Mustangs over the last twelve years. I have sold a 72 Mach One, bought and sold a 70 coupe and have just purchased a... 66 coupe through them. In all instances of sales and service, they have always been top notch and done their best to be sure I was pleased with all aspects, given that we are dealing with 50 year old cars. I have always been happy with the service and advice.. Their cars are beautiful! Mine have always run well and had no major problems. Any minor problems are taken care of right away.
OK this is going to be my review of my recent buying experience from Performance Mustangs and my quick philosophy on classic cars in general. All in all... it was a very pleasant buying experience, and I normally hate buying cars from dealers. I inquired about my car via a third party internet listing, and Chip called me back very shortly. I live out of town about 8 hours from Houston, and I had some scheduling issues to overcome before I could come down to look at the car. Chip assured me that if I told him the next day that I would definitely be driving down to Houston *the following day*, that he would hold the car for me. Basically he was telling me that he would hold the car as long as I promised him that I was coming from out of state to look at the car in two days. Sure enough, when I arrived two days later at about 10:30am there was another guy loitering near the car. This person told me that he was wanting to buy the car but that the owner told him that he had to wait until some other guy [me] came to look at it first. This guy waited around while I looked the car over and test drove it. This took me about an hour, and once I returned I told the guy that I was buying it, so he finally left. This experience alone told me that Chip was a man of his word. Now to the cars. Cars from the 1960's are half a century old. If you are buying any classic car from the 1960's, you are BUYING A HOBBY. I am writing this in 2017. It was common for most of these cars to have some rust, and to be approaching their first engine rebuild in *1987*. I remember; I was there. Many of these will be on their second or even third engine rebuild by now. If you think that it is a good idea to buy a 1960's car and to do any of the following things with it, you are most likely sorely mistaken and in the wrong: >use it as your only mode of transportation to get you to and from work. >use it as a daily driver because you have no other transportation. >park it outside all year long because you have no garage space to store it. >plan to pay someone else to fix every single thing that will need repaired in the future. >plan to pay someone else to do the maintenance requirements. However, if you understand that owning a classic car is a journey, if you understand that many modern computer chipped and moduled cars will become glitchy beyond affordability in the future, and if you like tinkering on old things, then you will probably love/love/love owning a classic car. What Chip and Caren provide is a very good rotating selection of 1960s Mustangs (and a few other cars). All of these cars will need tender loving care. But are they badass and cool? Yes. These cars come from all over and many are brought in and sold or traded by previous private owners, and will thus have some things that need to be done with them. Chip's shop fixes many things on the cars, but sometimes he leaves them less than completely restored so that they will be affordable to those of us in the working class. These cars are becoming more rare and are not cheap any more. If you are paying less than $30,000 then expect there to be a few things that need to be done to any classic car. Chip provided good service to me and did not sell the car out from under me even though he could have. Another guy wanted to buy the car, and Chip did not encourage the other guy and me to get into a bidding war with each other. He just told the other guy that a previous person who first called, had first dibs. When I asked Chip to take care of a couple of electrical issues before delivering the car, he did. The delivery process was lightning fast (though car shipping services can take several days). Ed from Hyden Motors in Indiana transported my Mustang to my house, and I cannot say enough good things about him. I basically had the car withing 36 hours of Chip cashing my check, and I live in another state. Chip and Caren were very prompt in keeping me in the loop during
I bought a 1966 Ford Mustang and I can't say enough good things. It was easy to work with them and I even returned and had a 5 speed manual added in place... of the 3 speed automatic. Everyone was really nice! My car runs really fast and it has not given me any trouble. I can't say enough great things about Performance Mustangs.
