Did you buy it from an add on RJ?
How did you loose several thousand (of) dollars in the transaction?
What was his promise to reimburse you?

It took several years for you to post this? More info needed please.

If I am not mistaken, Creative Glas Works (yes, that's the spelling) had a very poor BBB rating and have been sued numerious times. Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought they went out of business many years ago, not..... "BOUGHT A CAR A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO FROM HIM "

This sounds fimilar.

By no means am I saying it's right, but 90% of the time it takes way longer to build a motor or a car (from scratch. A rebuild is usually not as labor involved) than somebody tells you. I've dealt with that from the best engine builder in my area before. Pissed me off, but the guy did build me a top notch motor.
The otherthing is he only told you he would pay you back "when he could". When he can may be 5 years from now.
You should go back to him and set up an amount of time he is to pay you back and how much he actually owes you.
Does he do quality work? What do his other customers say about him?

What I'm getting at is it takes a long time to build a car and it takes a long time to get your labor out of a long project. Many small shops will bring in work and start something then bring in more work then thry are trying to turn the fastest dollar they can to pay the bills.
Again I'm not saying it's right, but it happens and it doesn't mean somebody is a scammer.

I have to know both sides of the story before I can call him a scammer.

I didn't get a motor built-just the body and frame-When I went to pick my car up he had 2 cars sitting in his garage complete without motor and interior plus two bodies sitting on jack stands-he still sells on ebay and on here.He is not going to reimburse me the money he owes me.Do you think I,ve not tried to cut a deal with him.Have you done business with him before.Your right YOU don't know because your not the one that got screwed.Am I pissed about it Yes I am-
