    Nvr got heads I bought fromAndy Mitchell aka hardcoreracing1

    I purchased a set of cylinder heads from Andy (payment was sent on 5/21/12) and over a month later, have yet to receive them. What I have received is a load of excuses...he no longer answers his phone and only responds to emails 3 or 4 days later providing new excuses. Supposedly he's getting these heads from a tech school in SoCal that's decommissioning them from their program. Once the school releases them, he's able to ship them. However, I'm just getting excuse after excuse...started out with him waiting on the school, then him being out of town and now just how busy he is. I said the beginning of this week I wanted a refund and he said if he didn't have them by Thursday, he'd return my money. Last night I called him and he answered and promptly hung up on me. Guess that tells me where this stands. He had 3 sets of Edelbrock heads listed that he just took down, I hope those people receive their heads!
    Andy, if you happen to read this, I'll retract this post if I receive a refund or my heads...

    I noticed that he now has "free shipping" listed on his ads...easy to say b/c he doesn't appear to even ship what he sells...I'm still waiting....

    My attorney is now involved as well as my buddy who is an agent for a high profile Gov't agency and works out of the SoCal office (although they'd normally never entertain something this small, it pays to know the right people in the right place!).

    I did post on there...was doing a search to see if he was selling my heads elsewhere and that post showed up so I responded. Do a google search and you'll see he's pissed off lots of people in the pass.

    He actually had his own section on pontiaczone but after ripping people off, he was banned.
    Anyway, he claimed he got these heads after a local trade school was done with them and that the school had to "release" the head before he could send it to me. However, I thought he actually had them when I sent him payment and he finally said he got them in late June but I haven't heard anything from him since about 7/4 so that's when I got my attorney and the feds involved. Also in talks with Upland PD...he tried screwing a guy on the pontiac forum who was a cop in North Carolina...this cop has put me in touch with a buddy at the Upland PD. Also have a friend out there who plans to stop by...I just want my money back at this point so I can move on...until then, I won't rest. It's a shame b/c even this cop says Andy is a nice guy, just shitty to do business with.

    I realized I never posted his info...
    Andrew Mitchell
    work address 8920 Vernon Ave #127, Montclair CA 91763
    home address 1440 Elmwood St Upland CA 91786
    cell phone 909 851 8251
    [email protected]

    I have confirmed by several people that this is his work address. My buddy actually stopped by yesterday but no one was there. He went to the shop next door and they said Andy had just left but drove a red Chevy pick up. There's a ragged out firebird/trans am in the front of his shop.

    Holy shit man, thats some bad press he's got there on those forums! I said somethin about your post & JD's on the PSCA site and he claimed your heads were comin and the other was about a credit card issue. He did mention somethin about a school but damn it seems like a long time since you first posted! I dunno, I'm about 2 hours, if that away from his shop, not sure worth my time tho. I am glad I decided to check out this forum tho...

    GOt email from a guy this morning claiming he paid up front for a build on his Buick 455 and has been trying to get it back from Andy for months...he's worried Andy's trying to sell his 455 to me...rightfully so! I dunno wtf to think of all this other than I think I'll stay away! A couple of questions revealed some real sketchy shit by him. Hope you guys get your shit back!
