Default Torq Thrust Terry Bellingham WA

Does anybody know Terry personally and if he is okay.

I shipped some wheels to have restored and have not heard back from him except one time, I know terry received the wheels and he was trying to get them done for
the albany swap meet and i was going to meet him to pick them up, he called the me the day before on nov 14th and said the wheels were not done and he would not becoming to the swap meet due to other issues and he would put my wheels first on the list and get them done and ship them to me.

I have never heard from terry again, i have tried emails with no response, tried calling two diffrent numbers for him and the messages are full and no one answers, his ebay account is no longer selling items and his last 5 or so feedbacks have been negative saying they never received the parts and they cannot get a hold of the seller.

I am not mad or angry at terry and i hope he is okay, i have used him in
the past to restore wheels and have bought parts from him with no issues
and he has always done a great job.

Does anybody else have information on Terry?

Thanks,

jp

With the amount of members on here surely somebody lives near him? Get somebody to go bang on his door! Just a idea......

Quick update,

I have not posted anything about my wheels and wanted to see if i heard back from terry.

A member from this site knows him and knocked on his door a couple of times to find out if he is okay and from what he has told me he is fine and doing some remodeling on his house.

I still have never heard from Terry, even after emails and phone calls were sent to him and it has been since the middle of october since he has had my wheels, all communications have stopped with Terry since i was supposed to pick them up at the albany swap meet on nov 15th, he called me the day before the swap meet and said that he was not going and the wheels were not done yet, all communicatons have stopped since then.

I dont know whats going on, we did not have angry words or anything like that, i just need to get my wheels and get my 55 chevy back on the ground.

I think i have been more then patient with Terry.

Anybody else have any ideas.

The corvette swap is at Puyallup fair grounds this coming weekend. He should be there or the swap two weeks later. I see him there every year. I had an issue with him a few years back at the Portland swap on some wheels that he sold a friend of mine. I know buyer beware, but when someone could get killed because they were sold unsafe wheels I have a problem with that. Good luck.

I've bought wheels from Terry as well as had him restore wheels and I have no complaints. As with any artist or craftsman you sometimes need to be patient but Terry's work speaks for itself:



(There is a second Terry Vaughan/wheel restorer here in WA, AKH Wheels?, so keep that in mind. I have also had wheels restored by AKH and he did nice work too.)

I hope TV in Bellingham is okay, I need another set of vintage TTs restored.

Saw him at Puyallup, It's was the Early Bird Swap. He was talking about health issues , and stress. So I think has been talking sometime away from things maybe. But still to have your wheels and not call you, or at least get them back to you is not good customer service.

There is no excuse for keeping your wheels!! You paid, he owes you. Even if health is an issue, he could get someone else to get them to you. I call BS on anyone that does this. Remodelling his house? Come on, theres no friggin health issues to be ripping off people. Man I have been there on your side of the fence but after a bunch of threats I got my item.

I'd send out a notice letter by registered mail. Then you have some proof of contact.

I have lost stuff on deals like this before, the longer it is, the worse it can get.

Feedback is horrendous... work looked good but... I've dealt with that before to with a little photographer girl... work looked good, but no delivery and forever to get my money back... Registered letter is way to go...

There is never an excuse to rip people out of their hard earned money health issues or not. Keep us informed on this low life crook.
