Hi guys, thought I'd share my experience I had with this shop today..
So to start it, my buddy and I were looking for a supra for him to buy. We went to right drive, which is where I bought my R33 from, and got a relatively reasonable quote for around 20Gs which is what clean 2jz supras usually go for, but we all want to find that sick deal so we went on craigslist and found this supra for 14gs. It was a 93 with unknown mileage.. So we went to see it yesterday.. We get to the place and it looks suuper ghetto and noone is there(12:00pm). So I go on calling the guy and after trying to reach him for like 5 mins, on the 5th attempt he finally picks up the phone and tells me he'll be there in 5 min. He shows up after 15 min and tells me the car is not there and he has to go get it from a storage which is only he allowed to get in to. So basically we cant go there to see it and he has to bring to the shop. So we end up waiting for another 15 mins just so he can come back and tell me he couldn't get it out because there were like 6 cars parked behind him. So I tell him I'll come back tomorrow.
So today, after school my buddy and I go back there, end up waiting for the car again and it finally shows up. So I look at it, seems ok from outside.. pop the hood, looks pretty clean.. no oil leaks or anything like that... Then I get into the car and grab the shifter.. That F***ing thing moves all over the place.. like you could literally feel how F***ed up it is and needs to be fixed. So I get out of the car and tell the guy there is a problem with the tranny and it needs to be serviced.. The guy just bursts laughing at me and telling me that he's a mechanic himself and there is nothing wrong with the car and its just a bolt that needs to be tightened and that's it. When I said I was a mechanic as well, him and the guy who works for him started laughing even harder and telling me I have no idea what I'm talking about..
As soon as I saw that sh*t, my buddy and I hopped back into my skyline and got the f**k outta there... I dunno how the hell this guy does business with people, but I'm definitely not going back there even if its the last shop on the planet!!!
