Searched for the right car for over six months and came upon Dimitri and Palm Desert Auto they had by far the best inventory and the most competitive prices... I could find. Love my 89 Targa! Do not buy A classic car before you come check out Palm Desert auto and talk to a very knowledgeable nice guy by the name of Dimitri.
I have several classic cars in my collection. Iv'e talked to Dimitry few month before buying a car there . He was knowledgeable enough to answer my... questions about few vehicles he had on inventory . The first impression was very important to me since he doesn't really know me he was very open about his cars and condition. The 1961 Corvette i have purchased won the most original car in a local car show in the bay area, and got attention from several corvette owners . that told me a lot about the car. I was in the car business for 11 years and i know how stressful and hard it could be selling on the internet when every one have a different opinion. I was happy with the service and the merchandise Palm Desert Auto provided . It was a pleasure doing business from 500 miles away without seen the car in person. Thank you.
My name is Joel Rosenblatt, I am a small but passionate collector of vintage original cars, currently owning a 1959 Convertible D, 1959 super coupe, 1982... Targa SC, 1989 930, 1970 914-6. All are clean, original or expertly restored examples. Wanting to ad to my collection, I found VIN# 12820120 a rare 1968 912 in signal green from Dimitry at Palm Desert Auto in Palm Desert California. This car looked good in pictures, and my initial contact with the dealer was favorable and the dealer had good reviews.Â Because I was impressed with Dimitry and the reviews, I neglected to get a PPI (I know..) He answered all my questions while assuring me over an over what great car this was. I signed the “as is” condition paperwork, and happily waited for the car to arrive..After receiving the car, nothing could have been further from the truth. He claimed: one paint chip on hood (false) mush worse paint then described. chips, bubbles and fisheyes GOLD SPRAY PAINTED HOOD AND DOOR LATCHES to look new SILVER SPRAY PAINTED wheel hubs and generator to look new claimed speedometer not connected but working (false) claimed gas gauge working (false) claimed all lights work (false) (no high beams, no license plate lights, no brake lights) Seats installed reversed Wiring was a disaster! oil temp sender not connected and NO WIRE oil pressure sensor not hooked up and NO WIRE the car came with NO GAS CAP NO GAS TANK VENT TUBE (all gas splashed of car on the way to NY (fire hazard?!) NO BRAKE FLUID IN RESERVOIR GENERATOR DEAD but painted to look new Freshly undercoated over rust under the back seats, who knows what else? I blame myself for not getting a PPI, and I was lucky Dimitry accepted the car back after I complained...... but this dealer kept a substantial deposit from me and has the car listed again for far more then I paid. Buyer beware. This car merits a VERY CLOSE INSPECTION to make sure the repairs (if done) were carried out correctly. If not, I would be very careful about this car and dealer. I just don’t want this to happen to anyone else
