May this NOT happen to you

May this NOT happen to you. In June 2013 I took delivery in Arizona of a classic car from Motorland Vintage America in Maine. The car had been advertised at hemmings.com and the dealer's Web site described the car as being very good to excellent in every respect, and they told me there was no rust. My mechanic soon found significant rust, no rear brake function, non-original engine, and evidence of a collision. An independent certified appraiser valued the vehicle at $6,000 less, or 40% less, than the purchase price. For months I have tried to get Motorland to pay me the difference, but they refuse. If you know of anyone looking to buy a classic car, please share this experience. Thank you.
