Thread: Mastodon motors?

  1. #1

    Question Mastodon motors?

    I've been trying to find a 4 door g wagon and had found some info on mastodon and was trying to get in touch with them to see an inventory list. All my attempts have been unsuccessful. Does anyone know if they are still around? And can you provide some kind of contact information. Thanks!

    Be very, VERY WARY of this outfit. Word on this and other forums is that they have a number of very unhappy customers.

    They have had some great -looking- G's on their website, but if you can't even get them to reply to emails or return phone calls when you're interested in buying, how are they going to be after the sale?

    It's been down for months, and the domain registration has now expired. That probably says a lot. CAVEAT EMPTOR!!!!

    As to your other question, Warren T near Montreal can probably help you out. He posts frequently on Pointedthree.com.

    Ya before I sold my G I was trying to deal with them.......... just don't not ever they are really rubbish and shady as ****. I had issues with them on everything thank god they never got any of my money because it would be gone I am sure of it.

    I can say Warren is a top notch guy he is just out side of Montreal and knows his stuff !! hosted my wife and I for 2 days in his basement sweet while we worked on my G !!! just great people !! and his 460 is amazing !
