Datsunparts Llc - The Gall! (As My Grandma Used To Say)

Recommended Posts

She would have first said "Gad!" when she saw this on eBay.  Notice that it's "Built to order" with "Polished Valve Cover".  The guy is amazing, just keeps asking for more and more...

Can't help it folks.  When I see this guy's stuff I have to say something.  Looks like he has reloaded, raised his prices,and is plowing ahead.

 

 

These are early Mustang mirrors.  I have a set on my car, bought from MSA.  Probably where he gets them too.  Nice mark-up, if you can get it.

I love it......It says "Not Actual Engine Shown". Of that you can be sure........you'll get an engine that resembles Frankenstein's brother!

Until he receives enough negative feedback then he will continue to sell through ebay. It's not just him that sell things at a higher price with sub part service. People will list hard to find items or post fancy pictures with the last four nissan part numbers covered so you cannot go buy the part from the dealer itself. Some people post nos parts that are still available from the dealership while again hiding the part numbers.

It's a sneaky game and unfortunately it makes it harder for people like myself to just sell datsun parts and throw up some average looking pictures.

I guess I should start posting all my parts next to fake nos nissan boxes and datsun flags then jack my priced up 10 fold haha

Oh btw...I hate auto correct...I went to college..I'm just too lazy to figure out how to turn this $^!# off.

I know where he lives......and he's been at it for long time.  When he gets enough negative feed back, he'll just change his user ID:

I think Ill sit on the fence and watch you guys fight over this "bargin".

 

I like the 30 day warranty. It would be out of warranty before it got here. And the taxes here bump the price up so much. If I ever need an engine (not looking forward to that) Ill try to shop locally first.

 

Pity so many shoddy dealers are out there. Makes it harder for the guys trying to do it right and to pick the guy from bad.

Al Allen is a crook. Do a search on his business, Datsun parts LLC on any Z car or Datsun/Nissan website, including this one, and you'll get tired of reading the complaints.

Another one I came across.  Who knows?  But they don't have a physical address so still sketchy.  I sent an e-mail asking for a quote.

 

http://www.gearheadengines.com/products/showPart?year=1978&make=Nissan&model=280z&part_num=321&id_num=86612&selector=gasEngine

 

A Google search came up 2 addresses:  the first was from a complaint filed on Ripoff Report.com back in mid 2012 - ATK North America/Gearhead Engines, 1102 W. North Carrier Pkwy Suite 100, Grand Prarie, TX 75050-1115. 

 

The second was from the TrustLInk.org website, with 2 out of 4 repondents filing complaints (the other 2were positive). The business location in those reports was here in Orange County, CA:  Gearhead Engines, Inc., 23191 La Cadena Drive Suite 103. Laguna Hills, CA 92656.

 

The search also showed that this company apparently sells most or all brands of engines - Ford, Chevy, Mazda, etc.

 

Admittedy, 5 reports is a very small sample size, but with 3 out of 5 reports being negative, I don't think I'd buy from them even though Laguna Hills is only a few miles away from me.

 

If and when you do hear back, please do post up.
