Dan Pronman and
Movie Star Musclecars attempted to defraud me of
$84,000 in April 2009.
The problems started back
in 2009 when the Pronman
brothers, Gary and Dan, offered to broker a collectible classic car to me.
We agreed to
the amount. The Pronmans produced a bill of sale from a third
party and I promptly wired full payment to that third party.
Subsequently, the Pronmans didn't tender the car, the paperwork,
nor did they even disclose the car's actual location for more
than seven years. Turns out that the third party that the
Pronmans "brokered" the vehicle from was Movie Star Muscle Cars
-- a Quebec-based company owned by the Pronmans. The lawsuit remains ongoing,

Back in November 2013 we discovered that
the Pronmans offered a partially restored
1970 440+6 Challenger Convertible for sale, (VIN JS27V0B100415),
under the alias of "Max" with a phone
number of (321) 305-9878. While it is our understanding
that this car has since been sold, we felt it worth noting the
alias that was used. Always be careful!

By making my story public, I
hope that you can learn from my loss. Whether you're the buyer or the
seller, make sure you research the vehicle and the person or entity
you're dealing with! This website is a public service to all
enthusiasts - it is not an attempt to influence the outcome of the

like the car that I attempted to purchase. When the lawsuit is
finally over and I win, I will donate 100% of
the proceeds (after legal expenses) to charity.
