Purchased a rebuilt steering box from him recently. Email response was quick, sent me a paypal invoice, tracking number provided the same day I paid. Arrived quickly, safely and in good condition. Thank you!

i responded to an ad for a 1970 vw bus owner's manual and a 1970 vw campmobile manual. the two items were 150.00 plus shipping. the ad mentioned the owners manual was a little rough - a picture was included. today, i received the manuals. the owner manual's pages 13 through 23 and 38 through 48 are so badly damaged and torn they cannot be read. i emailed loisbugs immediately but have not heard back. this is the first time a samba member has let me down. i was very disappointed. in hindsight, i should have called and asked more questions. lesson learned...

Called on Saturday, asked about a steering column. The person on the phone (didn't catch his name) explained he has hundreds of parts for sale and that he is not very computer literate. He asked if I could send a detailed message to his email and a woman would reply to me on Monday.

On Monday I received an email and an invoice. I paid the invoice and received the steering column that was pictured in the ad on Wednesday.

I know there are some poor reviews but my experience was impressive.

Sorry some of you guys had issues with this seller, but I just had a great experience. I was a little wary after seeing some of the feedback but I wanted the item and took a chance and it was fine. Tom

These clowns suck.

On April 26th I asked them about a steering box, and got a curt email to call them, I called back immediately and talked to "Shaun". I told "Shaun" that I needed a steering box for my 65, ASAP.

He stated that it would be no problem, they had "just finished several" and were ready to ship. For 185 dollars (35 dollars shipping, but $25.00 more than the advertised price). I paid as soon as I got off the phone, via Paypal...he replied and said he'd send tracking.

Then I read the feedback here.

I've called numerous times, and sent them a few emails asking if the steering box had shipped, its sitting at a Garage and costing me money. This is why I said I needed it ASAP, and they claimed they could ship it immediately.

So this morning I text "Shaun" and ask whats up. I get the angry attitude that many other buyers have received on here from them, and he tells me it shipped. Then tells me he'll just refund my money, and stop shipping...which means they most likely never shipped it at all (USPS Flat Rate shipping).

With their attitude and horrid feedback, I feel like I dodged a bullet here. To them a restored steering box is probably wire wheeled, sprayed black and stuffed in a box. I've spent hundreds of dollars on here lately getting my 65 ready, and these clowns were the only ones that played this game.

I have now had two experiences with these characters. Neither of which causes me to exude confidence.

The first was sending an email about buying a part and getting a response about 7 months later. That was sorta weird. But hey, sometimes things get delayed. Laughing

I just called to inquire about an ad on the samba. I say hello and get a "ya". I pause and say "how you doing today?" I hear nothing. I say "I'm calling about an ad on the samba". I get "hurry up". I said "I'm just trying to be friendly."

I get "why are you so slow talking?" I ask "is there a problem?"

The response "I'm eating my lunch." I ask kindly "what's for lunch?"

I get "dude, what's your fucking problem! I'm eating a burrito and I don't fucking want it to get ice cold!" And the bad attitude in the tone of voice was as big as a house. I said nothing and simply hung up.

You can't make this stuff up!

I called to make sure that I would get what was pictured because of prior feedback being less than stellar and suggesting you don't always get what is pictured when you receive an order.

I concluded that I certainly wouldn't entertain doing business with anyone who interacted with potential customers in such a fashion, poor reviews notwithstanding. Would you?

Their caller ID was Bug Shakk so I know I didn't reach a wrong number. Guess their spelling mirrors their attitude? Dancing

They may not see your post above, I would email them through one of their ads instead.

Make sure you say for what year/model too

This man is a liar. He sent me the wrong ignition switch, not the one he advertised as a brand new beetle 67 with the corresponding photo. He actually, tried to make a change sending me another photo to which I replied that it was not correct. He knew that my address was a cargo company shipping abroad, so I would not be able to return it. I place the complained before paypal but since I could not return it I lost my money: $150. This man, without any doubt is a thief and acted as such. Since, he acted so wrong sending me the wrong part even though I told him so, to my self is a criminal.

I had my typical great SAMBA experience buying parts from Lewis, Alex and Blase. My Ghia bumper corner got to me super fast and Alex's communication was stellar. They didn't overcharge on shipping and my part was well packed. I have always found everyone in the vw community to be good, trusting people and this experience was once again one of them. My part was of high quality, better than described, and wasn't over priced. I highly recommend these guys and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again. Great parts and great people period! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Huge do not buy warning
He used a photo of nice clean Kadrons talks a big game about cleaning parts sold the set for 440 received parts completely rusty inside and trash
PayPal sided with me on return
Guy wonít go to post office to pick up package just being spiteful
Right now search Kadrons you will see a ad with the same picture as he is selling more trash
I guarantee you they will not be in working order
What actually is frustrating isnít the giant douche factor itís more of a false advertiser by using different photos rather than taking one of the product he is selling.
Word to the wise snakes in the grass are on every online forum and I guess he is one of the people choosing to ruin the samba rather than build it
Hope this save someone the hassle of dealing with this guy

Johnny was excellent to deal with. I emailed on a Hurst shifter that was sold, and he quickly found another from their collection, emailed photos, and had it on they way the next day. Couldn't ask for a better transaction.

I have nothing but good things to say about my experience with Johnny. First of all, I accidentally paid him twice in which he quickly emailed me to notify me that he refunded me my money for extra payment. Next, he shipped my items quickly and arrived as pictured/described in Ad. I definitely will use him again with confidence. Thank you Johnny for the positive experience and the much needed parts!
