By the time Clay Thom-owner and salesman/front man Scott got to me they had the scheme of taking in my car on consignment and not paying upon sale down to an art.

The operation is very impressive-beautiful cars, extensive showroom and elaborate offices. This is all just a front. I mistakenly gave my frame off restored 1954 Corvette to them to assist in selling. I needed the funds quickly. We agreed on a reduced sales price and they completely ignored our agreement. After complaining they reduced to the agreed upon price and the vehicle sold within a few weeks. That was the beginning of December 2020. Since that time I have been given a check that they immediately stopped payment on. Stating they didn’t have the funds to pay me. I have been asked to come to the dealership twice to pick up payment. Upon arrival they either weren’t there to pay or was told they didn’t have the funds. I have been in contact most days for the last 90 and lied to too many times to count.

I would not give CNC title until I received payment. Thus the new owner has no title but paid for the vehicle. All of Clay’s lies are very short term- he promises payment today, tomorrow morning or within a few days. Clay and Scott are dishonest. They never intended to pay for the car, this has been proven by their actions. I was told by Clay that he was losing his business, CNC, and the building they occupy. So he has to harm his customers on his way down?

I have restored cars for the past 30 years and this is definitely the absolute worst car experience I could imagine.

technically you still own the car, if you have the original title.
New owner cannot register the car without it.
I would get an attorney involved
I always see their listings which are for the most part nice.
Hard to say this was a misunderstanding based on what you wrote.
Since your corvette could not be cheap, it will be worth the expense of counsel.

Wow! Your situation sounds eerily similar to my brothers’ with his 911 just a month ago. The check run-around, the lies, the canceled check etc etc. Those clowns finally made everything “right”. They were ultra close to finding how truly pissed he was.

Sounds like a nightmare! I would have called my attorney weeks ago and let it be their problem. If all you said is true someone could wind up in jail [which unfortunately won't help anyone get paid or get their cars back :/]

I read his review unfortunately I was already knee deep in their scam. I’m glad he was finally paid. Unfortunately I have not received any restitution for their wrong doings.
