Home » Who is Gary
learned (the hard way):
professes to be a Mopar expert and bills himself as a classic car broker.
During my relationship with him,
Gary never mentioned he was the co-owner of a Montreal-based
company called Movie Star Musclecars.
» When he and his brother Dan defrauded me of $84,000,
they did so, in part, by using their Canadian company called Movie Star
» Gary has
attempted to add-in a hidden profit on top of the 'brokerage
fee' he was charging me. One such example would be a red '69
Boss 429 he offered me for $225,000 which had already been
offered to me for $215,000 three days earlier by another broker.
So much for transparency;
» Gary knowingly
misrepresented a LeMans Blue 1969 Camaro L78 RS convertible. He had been
informed that it was a rebody, yet he represented it to me as authentic;
personally told me that he and his brother have re-stamped at least one Hemi engine to make an
E-body Mopar more valuable.
As his victim, my
research taught me:
» I'm not the first person to
litigate or near-litigate with the Pronman brothers. Joey Lange, Bill Ockerlund, Jurgen Stanley and Wade Ogle
are a few other collectors that have had serious problems the Pronmans and/or
their company Movie Star Musclecars. I'm sure
there are many more!
» Up until very recently, Gary appeared
to own half of one asset -- a condo that he and his brother inherited from their
late father. However, as of 2016, this condo appears to have been sold-off to
satisfy a tax lien.
» Gary is actually the
President, director and 50% shareholder of Movie Star Musclecars. The
other 50% shareholder is his brother
Dan Pronman, and the
dormant company is
still registered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada (it currently has
no bank account and uses a UPS Store for its mailing address);
» Contrary to Gary's Facebook page
(and his claims in Federal court), the entity "GP Musclecars"
doesn't exist and
doesn't appear to have ever existed in any state or country;
» Gary will
only claim he's a Canadian citizen when suit is brought against
him in the USA even though his Broward County arrest
records state he was born in New York (natural-born US citizen),
and Gary has
declared his domicile in Broward County Florida since July 1994;
» Movie Star Musclecars used to
operate out of Florida, transact business within the state of
Florida, and sell automobiles to Florida residents. Unfortunately, the company
has failed to obtain a dealer's license from the Florida DMV, has never obtained
the proper city and county occupational licenses, and has not filed a fictitious
name (d/b/a), is it incorporated in the state of Florida, nor is it registered
as a foreign corporation. Not only do I believe this to be illegal, but it also contradicts
the information found on their
business card specifically
listing Coral Springs as an office address;
» Quebec, Canada is apparently the fraud capitol of North
America (according to the police, and attorneys I have spoken to).
In fact, when I filed a report with the Montreal police, they told me it would
be approximately 10-12 months just to have it reviewed by an investigator
because they were so backlogged with other fraud cases;
» The Pronmans have carefully crafted
their little scam; they live in Florida, operate their business out of Florida, maintain a
'shell' business incorporated in Montreal, Canada, fabricate
bogus invoices to offset your purchase and then try to prevent your case from
ever getting its fair day in court by using jurisdiction, venue and
international treaty law as their
arguments to delay the case inevitably;
» Gary is no stranger to the inside of
a jail cell. Searching Broward and Palm Beach county public records
revealed that Gary was arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
four times (one of which was a felony, and one which caused an injury
accident); driving on a suspended license, using fake ID, and possession of
