    DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH DAN ZAPICO in St Cloud, FL

    Told me car was rust free....LIE Bubbles under paint at right rear roof line and rockers.
    Told me glass and rubber were good...LIE Crack in pass side door glass, delaminating from age on all glass, crack in windshield. The rubber is hard and rotten, and the flippers above the doors are JUNK!
    The wiring was a rats nest under the dash and an extra thermostat switch was wired into the circuit because the one on the vintage air controller was bad.
    The chrome on window frames and rear view mirror mount as well as the glove box door and speaker cover were all pitted. I GOT SCREWED!
    His reply when I called him to tell him he was a liar and cheat, "Sell it then"
    This person is SO DISHONEST he needs someone to do the same to him!

    DID YOU BUY THIS CAR SIGHT UNSEEN? IF SO YOU ARE VERY TRUSTING.
    IF YOU CAN'T TAKE THE TIME TO DO IT RITE, DON'T DO IT.

    Agree if you bought without looking at it in person, your fault too

    Update... on what Dan Zapico cost me on an "even trade&

    Well it's February 2014 and here's what I had to spend just to bring the car up to the level I was told it was last year.
    Glass and weatherstrip $1200
    Interior $3000
    Rust repair of floor pans $600
    Fabrication of missing window frame parts and seat mounts including drilling and tapping of broken seat bolt (Safety issue) New front seat hold down replacing the one that was plumbers strap (again a safety issue) New rear corner window piece that holds frame together was missing $100
    New chrome replacing the pitted glove box, speaker cover and ashtray, and instrument bezel. Also window frames, and garnish moldings. $2200
    Assorted paint and parts...$300
    New wiring harness $250
    New Vintage air ( both the controls and the compressor were bad) $1200
    Ever driven a car in Arizona with no AC? It sucks!
    So the total $8850 for a car that was represented by Dan Zapico as a rust free, good glass and rubber, ready to drive car. As I stated before Dan Zapico is a liar and cheat!!!

    exactly!

    I have spent lots of my hard earned cash to go see cars in person only to go back home empty handed. Good thing is the wife and I usually make the best of these road trips and turn them into some quality time spent together.

    Dan Got me years ago when I traded him my 1948 Anglia (Gold Rush) for a 1941 Willys Pickup (Thumper), the motor was junk, 2 different heads on it with the wrong size valves installed, what a joke. Then He traded the Anglia to a guy in California and never sent him the title, buyer beware!
