I still can't understand how this fucker is still breathing. He's seemingly disappeared off of the RAMVA newsgroup for now, too.

yea, i made the mistake of dealing with Mario too. he told me he could put my 70 Ghia back together in abiut 2 weeks, it was at his shop for 10 months. when i finally got my car back the work which i paid for was SHITTY. and of course i was missing parts. at the same time he was wiring a dunebuggy for me, incomplete work, left bolts out ,charged for work not done, and of course missing parts. I did take him to Small Claims court and won a judgement of $1500. i have since appealled and requested a trial by jury. If you are a victim of Mario Gavazzi in any way I would certainly like to speak with you. I Mike Johnson can be reached at 336-684-6894 I am willing to take this as far as it needs to go. I can also be reached by email at [email protected]

Unreal. I see him from time to time. I can't believe he makes enough money to eat. There are so uninformed folks still out there.

If you won a $1500 judgement, why did you appeal?

it's all wasted effort, unfortunately... judgements are piled up against Mario, but since he litterally owns NOTHING, and never will, hard to collect on a judgment...

His business practices have been very well documented. Type his company/personal name into Google and look what shows up.

At this point, if someone chooses him for a restoration, shame on them. Everything is out there, laid out.

Take 10 seconds and do a basic search if you're think of spending 10K with him. Confused

Fuck Sherry & Mario.

Most Excellent!

Keep us posted on your progress.

Here's one tip. What about laying claim to his shop's tools as assets?

Yip--get a certified copy of your judgment and get with the Sheriff to set up an auction. That's how it works in a lot of places. Get your $1,500 first and then worry about getting the rest. If you take his tools, you might well succeed in making the world a better place. Not that he really uses tools. But you can still sell 50 gallon drums of bondo at a sheriff's auction.

Where is his shop? The thread title shows North Carolina.

I frequent shows in NC and VA and would not want to support him at swap meets in those areas.

Not sure of the exact location of his shop. At shows he is the skinny dirty blonde guy with a tie dyed shirt. Usually he is by himself because no one wants anything to do with him.

Google is your Friend.

Right across from the Food Lion and down the street from Federal Waste Paper. On street view if you look a little east of north you can see some VWs parked back from the street, apparently behind a squirt-it-yourself car wash.
