I tried to help a friend out that has a mint 1987 Cutlass 442. He asked me about genuine GM belts. Obviously, it's a tough find, but I gathered up part numbers for him and led him to a Corvette supply house by the name of DocRebuild.com. I've never ordered anything from them, but they showed they had the belts in stock.
He ordered them directly from them, and got a couple of spares just in case. Old parts are tough to find for that year so you get what you can. The vendor wants to know the year of the Corvette. Pretty stupid if you're already ordering by p/n, so he simply put 1982 since that was the highest year. Doesn't matter, he's ordering by p/n. Paid with credit card. Then a couple of days later, his order is cancelled with no explanation.
Talk about an ASSHAT! If you're in business to pick and choose who to cancel orders on based on unfounded assumptions about customers instead of resolving issues or finding solutions for customers, well, he can stick his head up his azz. Never heard of someone selling parts to refuse to sell them to paying customers.
Last time I'll ever recommend this D**khole to anyone. Vendors with crappy attitudes out of the gate like this have no business being in business. The cheese-eating azz-monkey.
(It's just as well as things worked out for the good anyway, I found the belts he needed elsewhere, and for cheaper and they're on their way. Who needs this assclown?)
Here's an untouched email response to emails from Doug trying to explain he was only trying to obtain original belts for his 87 Olds showcar. The audacity of pinhead vendors like this make me puke. Email originally landed in his spam folder so he never saw it until today. Go figure. EDIT- Actually it's a compilation of both emails he sent, the second one actually starts after the 24 hour cancellation threat.
As far as I can determine - neither of the belts you ordered is actually used on 1982 Corvette and certainly not 3 of each. Methinks they are not intended for Corvette – or a substitute for another model – therefore there is no guarantee other than they are Genuine GM made in the USA, not reproduction. Certainly we will not send 3 of the same so as to pick which one meets some NCRS criteria for font, ink color, or other cosmetic finish. We sell on fit, function & quality – not some 3rd party invented inaccurate judging guide.
I don’t support NCRS cosmetic consignment shoppers. Therefore, if you want these genuine GM belts with the original packing sleeves, I will sell them as a FINAL sale – but not on a credit card. If you want these, send a US postal Money Order.
I’ll wait 24 hours for your response & then delete this order.
Since I don’t want to waste further effort – here is the final time I will write you anything.
You obviously received that email, because now you admit to ordering for a 1987 Olds instead of a 1982 Corvette. All of the above instruction still apply – except for the quantities available.
We only have 2 GM belts 9433743 at 30.00 and 1 GM belt 9433764 at 27.75. Read this carefully if you actually want these.
Two 9433743 at 30.00 = 60.00
One 9433764 at 27.75 = 27.75
Shipping = 7.99
Insurance = 1.80
TOTAL = $97.54
Since you have a problem with veracity: i.e. you lied to me twice. First about the year & make of the model & Two about receiving the notice 24 hours prior to cancellation. Therefore - I will not accept anything but a US Postal Money Order for $97.54 to the address listed in the right column of the home page. This method of payment & delivery will ensure no risk of mail fraud – a Federal offense.
If that does not meet with your approval you can go away. I will hold these item aside for you for 5 days, as I doubt your reliability. First come, first served. If you don’t want do as I say or if you want to argue – join a debating team. I own this company entering our 35th year.
This matter is closed. If & when your US Postal Money Order arrives I’ll know you are serious & will promptly ship these items.
DocRebuild – I don’t lie, nor do I suffer fools & play silly games.
All that and a D**KHEAD too!! How does he find the time...
