What do you think the chances are that HighPlainsDrifter's car is around there?

Ryan's Customs

3345 Valley Green Way
Regina, SK S4V 1L4

This is what BBB has for his Web site: Classic Roadsters II - Club Cobra

According to registration records, he registered as a 'sole proprietorship' September 19, 2014. 'Ryan's Customs' was not incorporated, so Ryan Douglas Martens is personally liable for debts of Ryan's Customs - though he knows whether he has sufficient assets to satisfy claims. http://www.publications.gov.sk.ca/fr...4/G1201440.pdf

@ cycleguy55 ( Brian ), Exc. question. But a great place to start. Club member goes there under the pretense of seeing the Ebay car, and if HighPlainsDrifter gives us something that would tell what his car would have ( anything that makes it different ), bang, we have him. At the very least we would have eyes on. Lets not let this POS (sorry, I can't think of a better title for this guy) get away with anything. Tom.

You can "post a question" on ebay and ask if this is the same Ryan that is listed on the web site and how he is making good on his prior deals. It will post on the listing. May get pulled down, but it will post initially.

Posting tough questions on Ebay wouldn't help. He as 0 feedback. So he would just close the auction and start again under different alias.

I just don't get how a person can live their life that way.

The address listed above is a private residence, not a place of business. Google Map it and you'll see it looks exactly like the grey house in the eBay listing photos.

Perry, I hate to say this, but it seems to me that there is no chassis and body here which belongs to you. It appears that Ryan has produced just one chassis and body to date: His own, which is now for sale on eBay. My guess is he used your deposit to purchase materials and parts for this particular (incomplete) car.

Not sure what is your best remedy at this stage. Perhaps putting a lien on Ryan's assets ASAP is the best bet, as some people have suggested. I'd move quickly before this punk skips town.

I'm really sorry you're in this mess and wish you all the best in recovering your monies.

Perry,

This is a mess that no one should have to go through and it sure puts a dark blot on the whole industry. I agree with what Sun Dude and all of the others have said. This guy just seems to be the bottom of the barrel for deceit and lying. I hope that you can find some way to recover your money.

Ron

Google Street View? Now why didn't I think of that? <sarcasm>

My apologies for not previously indicating that I had searched Google Street View and observed the obvious residential location.

I suspect Ryan was operating out of his garage, not a commercial space - though it's always possible he rented, leased or owned another property not listed by either the BBB or government records.

Question ebay cobra

Hi,
The ebay listing did not meet the reserve so I guess it did not sell.

Not trying to play lawyer here, but his business being the home can be a good thing. I had to sue when a guy making trailers failed to produce the trailer. The shop was on the same property as the house. They shared power, address, and a phone bill. The lawyer was mostly focused on proving the home was part of the business and went for the lien. It worked well for my case.

Best of luck.
