Fair comment Rick.

Unfortunately we have to give them the benefit of the doubt untill proven otherwise.

i think this post proves that
Not a new user - just trying to respect the forums rules and politely tell you to grow up.

Not all of us want to continually hear you whining about it all the time.

yes l feel bad, that l feel the need not to identify what other user names l go buy, but that's my business - not yours.

if your trying to imply that, I'm really Matt - then your sadly mistaken and barking up the wrong tree.

Just a fellow member who's sick of hearing your dribble.

Hey Matt.

Good to see you are allowed to have a right of reply. Interesting stories. Unlike someone else who we dare not speak his name for fear of retribution.

I agree that both sides of an argument are allowed equal time to put their case forward. This is a democracy right??

PeterP

Can you please check the IP address of the user that wishes to remain anonymous and confirm that its not me.

I think thats where that was going?

I think that if anyone wishes to make a comment they can, but to get into a slagging match with a specific person is pointless.

I did not write the post to turn it into a Shit slinging but to voice my opinion of wich all of you have now heard.


Rick, you have spoken your mind and I have spoken mine.

Let the rest have there say

LOL, it's not you Shermatt.

But there are few mavericks on here that have registered recently.

They usually trip themselves up.

This has been done to death. I also have been following this from the begining. My first intruduction to the casper thread was Stanglover ringing me with a please explain as to why it was costing what it was to do his Eleanor. I told him to sit tight & watch Casper unfold. Needless to say Stanglover is a happy boy now.

Its a sad & sorry story as we all know, but I understand Rick being cut & I also understand Matt feeling the same way. From my understanding Matt has gone out on a limb trying to hook up a brother & it has turned to shi7. Similar end result to the original hookin up a brother, but for different reasons. (my ar$e is still bleeding from that one)

My opinion is Matt hasnt "Ripped" anyone. To rip someone off involves financial gain. I know what it costs to build these cars & I reckon Matt has torn up 8 to 10k over this deal. Rick has probaly torn up a similar figure.  No one wins, everyone looses. Life goes on.

Rick, just get on with building your car mate. Once its finished to how you imagined all this will seem like a bad dream & you can get happy. In reality your car will owe you around the same coin as Stanglover spent. Its what it costs no matter how you crunch it. As I say to anyone wanting to build a "GOOD" Eleanor, if you dant have 100k minimum dont bother.

Matt, shi7 happens, no one can keep everyone happy all of the time. Got a horror story or 2 of my own. The worst one involves using sub contractor. Its hard to control things that arent done under your roof. As long as the happy far outweigh the sad then we must be doing something right. The sad are still entitled to feel the way they do, we just need to learn from why they are pi$$ed & avoid the same mistakes down the road.

As for Rocks story I dont know enough to comment, from what I can gather he is getting on with getting it on the road & power to him for that.

Cage's car I am obviously well versed in. Cage is a stand up guy & he is just carrying on with getting the car done. No whinging, no tears.  We had a good chat when the car arrived & the decision was made to just make it a beast of a car & let history be history. Also what the car owed landed wasnt that far off its market value anyway. Had the mexicans not got involved & a few k wasted there it would have been a very good buy. By the end of this year it will be tearing up the streets & the sad times will be gone.

Assuming the rest of the car looks good, I'm not seeing anything underneath that is worthy of a Reshell. A few patches, yes, nothing that makes it a writeoff.
At $100 per patch..... thats a lot of patches!

Have to say well done to the admins,Wont here that often from here,and also the users well most, for keeping it as is.

Im a beleiver in you get what you pay for.
Also a beleiver what you read on sites like this often have 3 sides to the story,what you read from both parties,and what you hear from peoples mouths away from the forums.

Its off the forums from nuetral people where I find the best info.

Research is of most importance.

There are no winners here,Everyone and every business has people who like and dont like them/it.
Thats life,unfortunatley some of the guys have spent more than what they wanted,reverting back to getting what you pay for.
There are many $69 flights,many shows and many decent cars here in Australia to view as possible purchases before putting your dreams in someone elses hands.

Hope you all get to drive your dream and enjoy it.

My 2cents.
I used Shermatt to check a vehicle for me just over 12 months ago. I explained to Matt what I was looking for in the vehicle and what I was not.
Within 24 hours of first contact Matt had sorted  and arranged an inspection.
Following this he sent me a truck load of photos of the good the bad and the not so bad.
Overall my experience was good, communication excellent, would use again.
I don't post on here often anymore, but this thread has been building up for a while now, so it is probably best that any grievances get aired and GTF over it.

Over the last year I have been slowly chipping away at a little piece of art that I'm about to start a nice build thread.

Its the 1968 S code convertible that sorted of got pryed out of my hands last year by a very convincing gentlemen

The car has been rotiserie restored and it is my little baby.

Here it is when we pulled it out of sunstate mustangs deep dark workshop



This is how the Fatkid builds a car and have had a ball doing it

Stay tuned

Matt


I have known Matt and Sheri  for over a a year now and i find them very genuine people, i am the "convincing gentlemen" that Matt refers to in his post.
We negotiated a price that we were both happy with, we agreed that there may be some extra costs as you can see from the photo we were starting with a lot of unknown.
we also agreed to be PATIENT as Matt also has to make a living he is not running a charity.
the S code vert project has been running for more than a year now and we are in the home stretch, Matt has always kept me informed with updates and over 200 photos in a photobucket account.
i have read recently on this and other forums of success storys using Shermatt international and they all come back to the same thing, they were all patient and waited for the right car and the right deal.
I certainly would recommend anyone to Shermatt (Matt and sheri) on the proviso that they be patient and let him do what he does best

Does anyone remember who was the impetus behind that Hookin' up a Brother project?  If we are going to consider someone's intent/scruples  let's look broadly at what they have acheived.
Rick, in your shoes I would be pissed like you, it is your hard enrned at stake here.
