Unhappy Ron Memmer, Ron's Classic Cutlass Issue

Ron Memmer of Ron's Classic Cutlass of Monticello, Indiana recently took a look at some still boxed New old Stock parts I had for a 1971 442. He represented himself as a 442 expert and said I could trust his expert advice. He wrote down what he said were actual retail prices of my parts, as follows: Ram air hood $5000-$6000; fenders $2000 each; convertible quarters $1800 each; grill $500-$600; rear bumper $1000-$1200; and still in box sport Steering Wheel $400-$500. He said he wanted the steering wheel to complete a restoration of his. I found out the next day that he offered the steering wheel to someone for $1500, when I asked him about it he admitted that the sport steering wheels can go for up to $2200. Has anyone else dealt with this "you can trust me, I am an expert" routine?

Ron

I have meet Ron several times at the Olds Nat Meets. I have bought things form him, and he has bought a lot of parts from me. To me. he is a very likable person, and he knows Oldsmobile. The think the thing a person needs to know, when you are selling anything, good quality or rare to find NOS parts, you need to do your research first, so you have some idea what it is worth. I have had parts that I thought were worth X amount, and when I sold them I go more than I thought they were worth. I also sold parts, that were worth so much more than I thought, but did not research, and I can't blame anyone but me. To me Ron's a OK guy, just like anyone else, trying to do the best he can. To me he helps the Olds Nation, buy what he does.

442Harv gave you some great advise. Do your own research via multiple sources before selling anything, and I would add, please try to help out another in the hobby by getting your parts to someone that will use them instead of someone wanting to flip them for cash.

Yes, most all of us know Ron, and I'd say he is a nice guy, and for all intents and purposes a Cutlass/442 expert. If you need parts, there is a good chance he has what you need.

He is in the business of buying and selling parts.

Enough said?
