Guys,
Just talking to a mate of mine Peter Loftus in Western Australia and he mentioned that he cannot contact Rebelworks. He was to be the 1st in Australia to have their latest Modified. He's paid in full for the car and shipping, but has had no contact since 12th August. He has had no replies to emails or phone calls. Anyone shed any light on what's going on here? Are they still in business?

I thought I read somewhere that they were in the process of building new stuff. He was online here on HT earlier today too. Maybe he'll read your post and reply back?

From information I've received in emails from America, it appears that Rebelworks have history in the non delivery of cars after payment has been made.

One other comment.

My mate has been robbed and you laugh. Sorry... Didn't see the joke pal!
Very inappropriate in my opinion.

Clemenade,
Apology accepted...mate, as you can imagine I'm fairly hot about this.
I've had nothing but wonderful dealings buying gear out of America. Eveyone has gone out of their way to assist me over the years in getting 4 cars plus assorted items like spares or tyres from Todd Bishop etc.. to the other side of the world. I thank everyone that has ever dealt with me for their patience and assistance.
It annoys me when people get screwed by someone in whom they have place a lot of trust and we have to, as we really geographically displaced. Peter cannot just jump in a car and drive to Iola and demand his money back or take out his frustration with some pyshical threat.
Anyway we're still on the case.
Thank you for your time.

Bob:
I am sorry to hear that this situation has come about. I value my friends down under and will see what I can find out about these people. I hope they deliver what has been paid for or at least refund the money. You are right this is no laughing matter. I'll be in touch with you.

I looked up the ebay listing for this car and it said Iola Ks. I am going to look it up in a few. I also went back and looked at the post on here and a phone number was avalible as 620-380-6350.
I have also heard that others have unsettled dealings with this individual.
Iola is on route 169 south of Kansas city

Rebelworks update...

Just off the phone to Peter Loftus in Bunbury, Western Australia. Rebelworks have still not supplied Peter with his modified and are refusing to reimburse the money he paid them. It's looking like he's done his money and realistically has no recourse, as Consumers Affairs in Australia has no jurisdiction in the USA. Posting this so people on this site are aware of the business practices of this Company.
