Ripped off member, never sent payment for parts received. Will not respond to PM's, emails or calls. Do not deal with this member, buying or selling.


Miami, FL

Seller has been less than accurate in his descriptions of parts he's selling. 5 members of this forum have been dissatisfied with the items they have received or never received them at all. A member of another forum has also been scammed for a large sum of money. This user is currently under investigation by his local authorities. It is strongly advised not to deal with this member under any circumstances.


SonomaGTlover - Jon Rust - Mirrado Graphics
O'fallon, IL

Jon was selling vinyl decal kits as well as electric fan mounts to forum members and collected money for items he never delivered.
This is the second time Jon has fallen excessively behind on his commitments to the SyTy community.
At this time we do not recommend placing any orders with Mirrado Graphics or Jon directly until all of those who have yet to receive their orders are satisfied.


Sells junk parts with fake receipts for performance parts, people think they are getting performance parts, but end up with junk. Also makes garbage aluminum radiator supports which break and case hundreds of dollars in damage. Do not purchase anything from this seller!

Another member saw the posting above and had this to add:

Keith Mease - South Jersey / Philly area - MPE, MPE Performance Fabrication
Has ripped off/scammed dozens of SyTy, Turbo Buick and Impala SS owners. Impossible to reach when he doesn't want to be found (or he's in jail), but does respond well to threats, lawyers and law enforcement. Deal with at your own risk, you have been warned.--

Tony DeQuick - Chicago, Illinois area
Formerly of Charged Air Systems (CAS). Sells radiators, CAC's, etc. Does not ship parts in a timely manner. Does not reply to emails. Does shoddy work. Has a very poor eBay feedback rating and changes his Ebay ID frequently. Has been banned from PayPal. Bad reputation in many automotive arenas, turbo Buicks, LS1's, SyTy's, etc. DO NOT DEAL WITH.


Torrey Ward
SyTy owner. According to a SyTy Vendor who built a motor for Mr. Ward, he has not paid his balance due on the labor/parts for the engine build. According to the SyTy Vendor, Mr. Ward was taken to small claims court for the outstanding balance. The court ruled in favor of the Vendor, but Mr. Ward still hasn't paid. Other vendors should proceed with caution when dealing with Mr. Ward.

  • GT #219 For Sale Ohio


    I don't have time for it to fix it like planned because I have too many other projects. I want to see it to go to someone that could make use out of it.

    109K currently needs a battery and a trans pan seal. Did run and drive in 2015 when last moved.

    Interior is nice. All Sonoma GT specific parts are there.

    Bed has bondo work and some bubbling along the top of the wheel arches, fenders are aftermarket, doors are solid (replaced), cab is rusty (rotted through below the bottom door hinge brackets). Has an old flip sun roof (does not leak). All cladding is there minus both bumperettes. Front bumper is a bit beat from a spin out a few years ago. Has aluminum bumper supports.

    Chassis is very rusty, but solid. No rot through. It's been garaged the last ~5 years.

    Will come with S10 swirlies.

    I have more photos upon request.

    $1500 takes it. If you want a set of rough zq8s on tires with it, add $150. If you want the used zq8 steering box, add $60.

    Located in Northern Ohio.

    I threw a new battery in it over the weekend and I am trying to workout the fuel issue.

    ZQ8s have sold, so they are no longer an option.

    Here are some more pictures as well.

      I got the truck running this weekend. Took a few things apart, and it fired right up. It does have a miss (don't know if it is fuel or spark yet). The miss makes it sound like a rod knock, but I can tell it's just a miss. I tested out the trans, and it still works as well.
