Hi hi guys, i havent posted much in this forum but just read mostly. I have been looking at SuperReplica site when i first took interest into kit car replica, but than read alot that they were scammers. And i realised that it was true from all the post and their meaningless promises and stupid website with others build.
Now this site has popped up, and it has many simularity as SuperReplica and looks very fake also. i give you a few examples. 1stly They dont promise to build replica for $20k but for under $15k or even less. 2ndly For those whose ever seen their add on their site or YouTube, its very much the same, The use of the words "An exact replica, only you will know the differnce" even the was the writing are typed in the same way! 3rdly All the price which is rediculous, if its too good tobe true, that it is!! and the price for front light lens and tail lights are only $125.00 dollars. hummmmmm 4thly You can get replica wheels and others for couple hundred bucks.
Notice the use of other peoples pictures, eg the Murcy kits, doesnt that look like Top Guns green car? and the Yellow one is not a Murci its a Cyclone kit that looks very different.
I dont know, you tell me your opinion, i just find it too fake, if only they get $500 from every person that wanted it, how much will they have?

Why do people keep posting potential scmmers on this site when they have no real evidence?

It is starting to annoy me a little;

If you have a concern, flag it as a concern not as a scammer, if you have been scammed then say you have been scammed and explain why?

God this is frustrating........!!

Where on my tread does it say that they 'SCAMMER'? its posted to warn people of potential sites to be aware of. It does not say anywhere dont buy from them!! if you can stop a person losing there hard earn money to someone, why not help? do i need to be ripped of 10K or so to be able to than list it???
If it annoys you than why bother to read it than, many other threads in here!!
But hey? heres a idea, why dont you go and prove me wrong than, than i will withdrawl my statement. Anyway there might be others out there already been taken and might come out after they read this!!

Dylan, dont let him get your shorts all bunched up. There is a lot of devious crap going on and if we walk around with our eyes closed, we are sure to get bit. If something looks fishy, feel free to point it out so we can see for ourselves.

Lest we forget that our good buddy Nash started this strange thread. I certainly won't.

REGARDING WWW.CARKITINC.COM BEING A POTENTIAL SCAM:

WHILE SOME PEOPLE ARE SPENDING THEIR TIME TALKING ABOUT THE CARKITINC HEADLIGHT LENSES BEING SO CHEAP THAT THEY HAVE TO BE A SCAM OPERATION, OTHER PEOPLE ARE BUYING CAR-BODY KITS FROM CARKITINC AND MAKING SERIOUS MONEY WITH THEIR KIT-CAR PROJECT.
YOU HAVE TO DECIDE WHICH GROUP OF PEOPLE YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF. I KNOW CARKITINC SOLD FOUR OF THEIR 360 KITS LAST WEEK AND ALL THE PEOPLE THAT BOUGHT THEM ARE VERY HAPPY WITH THEIR PURCHASE. CARKITINC CAN ALSO SHOW YOU HOW TO BUY A SLIGHTLY DAMAGED DONOR CAR FOR A FEW THOUSAND DOLLARS DIRECT FROM THE INSURANCE SALVAGE AUCTIONS.
YOU CAN OWN THE COMPLETED 360 KIT-CAR FOR AROUND $10,000.00.

anyone is welcome to visit www.carktinc.com anytime in alabama at their office location and the office hours and address is on their website.

each week several body-kits are sold and either picked up by the body-kit purchasers or shipped by the company directly to the customer. i know...because i work for the company. this is a good company and they keep their promises.

people are making money with the body-kits they buy from www.carkitinc.com

search youtube for "carkitinc find us" to see a video that shows how to find the office location of www.carkitinc.com and the video actually shows the company's office building.

Sorry, i couldnt reply, i've been busy getting my Kit sorted out. You would think even from someone you believe are a legit buisness would do the right thing buy you. Well i bought 2 kits from April, the time which was to be delivered and till August after many excuse and dodgeing questions, it finally came, but only to still be waiting for documents that i asked for since i made the purchase till now and not recieveing them. Cargo is at the Docks and im paying Storage charges day by day trying to contact to get the documents to clear it from customs. But more on that later. The oint i'm trying to make is that, If something is too good to be true, than it is!!! I've search and read so much forums and site to know the picture KitInc has posted is not theirs!! They are even posting on LamborghiniReplica now trying past of those kits at a cheap price.
Cheap Price means,No expierence fibreglasser making the product, cheap product etc. The picture of them posting of the Fibreglass body is not a Mercy, but a Kit called Cyclone for thoe that dont know. It looks alot different and if you look at enough kits to know that that is a poor quality kit, that doesnt resemble any Murci.
But hey, if i cant convince you, than by all means go and put a deposit down. I havent heard anyone telling me how good and how great their kits are, and why that? They look 99% the same as SuperReplica to me. Giving out false hopes and taking hard earn peoples money.
And to your search carkitinc stuff. Iguess you havent seen Surper Replica Site and Videos showing where they are also!!! LMAO
Anyways i just dont understand why you are defending them so badly? You ben fishing lately ? cause you smell fishy!! Hey ou know what? take a look at Lamborghini Replica and see what contact name is on there hmmm Johnson10745 also..So here's my 2cents, A webiste that just open the same time Super Replica closed down, Same style video and the use of other peoples build "only you'll know the difference"
Dylan - Jul 26, 2008 - 03:02 PM
Post subject:
I also forgot, they have a scam alert on thier site too....because they put out money from thier own pockets, because of concerned for people well being and flew there to find out who Super Replica is. But dont Go there, You might be kidnapt and held for ransom.
People doing good buisness dont do buisness the way they do. Put a $500 Deposit down first, than you download papers and fill out to fax back to them so they know what your ordering. Panama/Alabama why are those places able to manufacture kits at low prices? Letting people know your address or location while you are building copies of thier cars, i'm sure you will get a visit one day from them.

Peace.

SUPER REPLICA'S SITE IS NOT DOWN BUT THEY ARE STILL AS FAKE AS THEY EVER WERE. SUPER REPLICA HAS ONLY UPGRADED THEIR SITE BECAUSE THEY HAVE RIPPED OFF SO MANY PEOPLE.
http://www.supereplicas.com/newsflash.htm



WWW.CARKITINC.COM IS LEGIT AND YOU CAN VISIT THEIR OFFICE PLACE IN ALABAMA. THEY WILL MAKE YOU A BODY KIT AND WAIVE THE $500.00 DEPOSIT IF YOU CALL THEM FIRST AND CONVINCE THEM "YOU" ARE LEGIT. CAR KIT INC. HAS MADE KITS FOR PEOPLE THAT NEVER HAD THE MONEY TO PAY FOR THE KIT AND THEREFORE THE PERSON THAT ORDERED THE KIT NEVER PICKED THE KIT UP. IT IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE TO REALIZE THAT IF YOU PAID CARKITINC THE $500.00 KIT DEPOSIT ON YOUR CREDIT CARD AND THEY DID NOT DELIVER WITHIN 30 DAYS THEN YOUR CREDIT CARD COMPANY WOULD REVERSE THE CHARGE AND REFUND YOUR $500.00 DOLLARS.

Whats done is done, by you going on here and trying to justify yourself by saying Super replica is a scammer and your not, tells people things. If your selling lots of kits to many happy customers, how come we havent heard a single peep out of anyone to back up your word? if you look at how many people have viewed this thread than you have to sit back and wonder!! enough said. Going to build my Lambo now!!
Maybe you should too.

carkitinc.com allows customers to charge their entire body-kit purchase on a credit card and any credit card company will allow the customer to dispute any charge that you are not happy with but super replica requires a bank wire transfer for all payments and you can not receive a refund on a bank wire transfer.
call your credit card company if you have questions regarding this posting.

we are www.carkitinc.com and we sell supercar replica body-kits that are easy to complete like the kit 360 for example.
we have had people contact us by phone that wired money from their bank to supereplica.com and that company supereplica.com is located in the country of panama. the people tell us that they never received any replica car as promised. supereplica.com wants you to keep sending money as they promise you they are working on your car. they will only take your money and never deliver a car.
visit us at www.carkitinc.com
you may pay for your kit with paypal or credit card or cash or personal check.

I drove down to their facilities (carkitinc.com) without letting them know I was coming, and I found they have 1 body for each type car they sell ready to be shipped. They are molded in another town about 1 hour away (in which I use to live). He was very informative and helpful and showed me around his whole shop (which was very interesting).

They have an established business that is their main income. The cars are a side line for them. He has several business ventures (as you know gives them more of a chance to stay afloat longer) so this isn't their main income.

I went by to see if they were for real. They are. The molds look very good (better than mine was). From what I can tell I would trust him to by things from. And I will probably be buying from them in the future.

I was very impressed especially for dropping in unannounced. He was helpful and was appreciative when I told him toward the end of our conversation I was on this forum and was "checking him out" to see if he was a scammer, and I told him I would let everone know what I found was positive.

Take it as you will, I just thought if I could help someone on the forum to know what kind of shop this was, it may help.

Thanks Flying Roadster for taking the time going down there to clear some things up! I to like some of these other members were a little sceptical about carkitinc, so i did some checking of my own and this is what i found out.

I map quest there location to see how to get there as i was interested in there kits and put a deposit down on a mercy 1 NT to wich i am supposed to pic up on the 25th of this month. What struck me as odd is that there were two buissness with seperate adresses but the same phone number. So i emailed carkitinc to inquire on this and to ask for refrences. Carkitinc replyed that he owned more then one buisness and thats why they share the same number. Carkitinc also gave me a refrence who i called and have talked to several times since. Although he did not purchase a lambo replica but there 360 kit. He was very happy with the qualitly and said carkitinc was very helpfull to the point they found his doner car, and told him were and how to get the rest of his parts for the build.
Then i proceeded to email the the albertville city police department to see if they have heard of carkitinc located in there town and also about the numbers and adresses. To my suprise they emailed me back right away and said this yes, his buisness is legitimate and he owns two otheres in the same building and also has a current buissness licence.
As i said earilier i put a deposit on the mercy 1 kit form carkitinc. I never thought of him as being a deciving buissness man, But when i read this forum it raised an eyebrow and i wondered so i did some checking. As i will be driving 3000 miles round trip to pic this up, that would be so terriable to drive 1500 miles to a buissness that did not excist. I will leave here on the 22 to go get it and when i do i will gladly post pics of the kit and let you all see and judge for your self. I to do belive that he is a honest buissness man and look forward to picking up my kit from him and purchaseing others in the near future. So once agian thanks Flying Roadster for taking the time to check this out!!!!!!

This is a legitimate company. I have been emailing them for some time now and all emails have been replied to.(except my last) The only reason why I'm going with someone else to purchase my kit from is because I want a Murci Roadster, And theirs doesn't look like a LP640. looks a little weird. So I'm gonna be getting a G28. But will be getting a GT, ASH-MART, and a 360 kit from them.

my question to johnson10745 a.k.a. Carkitinc. is, Why does your Mucri NT(Murcielago Roadster) look so funny from the pics you have shown on the site? It looks like a Cyclone kit which is far off from the Murci Roadster.

And to Greenmeansgo, I know that emailing doesn't mean they are legit, which is why after dozens of emails and dozens of replies, I called them(many times at that) to ask the same questions. Got the same answers too. Very nice people.

I'm gonna look further into this for everyone. Need to get to the bottom of this matter.

I know being a body kit and parts producer/seller I am suspicious to say,but I am 100% sure you will be ripped in one way or the other. Or you will loose your money and get no car, or you will get a piece of crap. Beleive me, its impossible to built a quality replica, even a not exact one for 20-30 bucks.
I know you want a Murci, I don´t sell Murci kits, so I don´t want to get their business. These guys don´t have one single pic of a finished car,and don´t give us crap that clients dont want exposure, just take pics of the complete car before painting and you´ll never know whos the client.
If they don´t want to scam you at the best they want your money to finance them start this business. So they don´t know how the finished car will be.

Look, I don't know this guy on a personal basis but I do know he does have the kit bodies at his facilities. I don't know about murcielago's enough to say whether it looks exact or not, but I saw a coupe and roadster bodies (in crates) and they looked good to me.

He does not build cars he sells "parts". I don't know if he has any builders that have finished or not. I think if we want to find negative in him we will.

We could find something negative about EVERYONE on this forum if we wanted. Give the guy a chance. He is NOT associated with SuperReplica.com. Like I said I don't know the guy, but obviously no one else on here does either.

CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG. Like someone said on another post. Wait till he has actualy screwed someone, that's the only way to TRULY know. I personally don't think he will.

I agree 100%.... I would like some reassurance that he's a legitimate business man, and I thank you for taking the time out of your day to pay him a visit.

I would like for him (Carkitinc) to answer my question as to why his Mucri Roadster kit looks weird. All other kits look great, but its the Murci Roadster(The one I want to purchase the most) that looks strange. Care to answer as to why that is Johnson?
bartman - Aug 20, 2008 - 01:38 PM
Post subject:
If you have followed the Murci replica for a few years you would realize that the murci kitcarinc sells is the old G24. It is a decent car just not that accurate, the nose is long and the rear too tall and square/short or something. From my understanding kitcarinc just produces bodies that is why there is no completed car photos. I think when they say they have sold "x" number of cars they probably mean bodies or partial bodies. I talked to him, and he told me I could come pay in person and pick up the body right then. How is that a scam, he said if I don't like what I see then don't buy. How is he going to scam me? Is he going to knock me over the head when I get there and take my money?? I understand there are a lot of scam artist in this business, I have been had by quite a few. But why do this to this guy when no one, no one has been scammed and someone on this forum went and checked him out in person?
chrisbarbers - Aug 20, 2008 - 07:06 PM
Post subject:
Looking at the recent posts I think things are getting confused, the thread is called "SuperReplica site is down?hmmm CarKitInc looks like them!!hm", if I was an outsider reading this thread it would be clear that they are not the same guys or company.

But MMs recent post would make you think you are gonna get ripped off by CarKitInc, when in reality Flying Roadster has been there and seen the operation, for me I would like to see pics of the visit, or a subsequent one Flying if it isn't too far, but depending on your trust of Flying that seems like a fair report and useful info (don't get me wrong flying I'm not dissing you, just keeping it balanced)

So I think we need to seperate the two entities, I for one would not trust Superreplicas as far as I could throw my Diablo kit, however on recomendation from Flying Roadster I would go and check out CarKitInc for myself and if satisfied collect my kit there and then.

The only problem is the USA is geographically huge and not everyone will be able to get to his shop to check it out, so you have to take it on faith and go with someone you get a good feeling about and has a growing reputation for delivering.

All that said if I was buying now and not building MM would be the man I would go to.

I don't think MM was refering to carkitinc.com. His customers have been duped by Superreplica though.

As far as getting pictures I will gladly get some for you. I have family about an hour from there. My next trip down I will get some, figuring out how to post is something different. I'll figure that out. It may be alittle while before I get down there though, but I will definately get some pics.

I know Johnson said he doesn't get on here anymore because he felt he couldn't overcome the bad comments. He said he couldn't win. So I don't know if he will reply. He gave me his card though his Number is 256-891-2030. They answer as "Quick Cash" because that is his main business. The body business is called Quick Cash Car Kit Inc. It simplifies answering the phones he said. I'm sure he would gladly answer any call, he really seemed nice.

Sorry to be long winded. Just trying to help.

Ok guys this is what i saw of carkitinc during my trip there. I left here on aug22 and arrived there on aug24. When i got there to the left of his office building i saw two mercy 1s, one was a NT(mine) and one was a removable top version, Which he said was going to Brazil. Behind those, there was a lp640 hard top, and his ash mart kit. also there two or three wrecked porche boxters for his gt2 kit. To right of his office there was a dee-low kit, a 360 kit, and the molds for the gt2. All were ready to be shipped. He also had a set of mercy tire and wheels. he showed me a 360 seat he had done and it looked good. Although i didn't get to see his shop (it was in another town about an hour away) i wanted to, but after driving 1582 miles one way i was tired. Mr. Johnson was a real nice guy and answered all my questions i think he is honest although he dresses and kinda looks like elvis lol. Now guys im not tring to argue or sturr up stuff but this is what i saw. People will belive what they want i can't change that but i know they are the real deal and i now have something to build, and for me thats enough. All you guys in this fourm seem great and from the threads ive read are all really smart. it seems there are a lot of scamers and there is nothing wrong with bringing up a concern if something sets off a red flag after all who wants to lose there hard earned cash i don't. Sorry to be so long winded but i will post my pics of the car i got from carkitinc as soon as i figure out how sorry.

I've exchanged a few emails with this Johnson guy at carkitinc, inquiring about the Aston Martin kit they have for the XK8. I hope it's real, but I gotta tell you, the guy seems really evasive. In the last email I sent, I asked a few specific questions -1. Have you sold any of the Aston Martin kits, or can you give me a reference from someone who's built one? 2. Do you have any of these kits ready now for pickup ?
This was his answer to my email, and I quote " WE SALE KIT CARS." That's it.
Does this guy not speak or understand english well? I'm not sure, but I do know you MUST be careful in this industry, and any legit company should recognize that and be willing to answer questions like mine with clarity and without reservation or insult. Not to insult the above poster, but I'm also suspecious that the one guy who claims to have been there is also a new member here. Any to anyone who thinks you shouldn't be suspecious without cause, I can only assume you are young and inexperienced in this industry. I was a part time writer for Petersen's Kit Car many years ago, and I've seen it all. There are as many scammers in this business as there are legit companies - maybe even more.
I really like this kit they are offering. At the sales price of $3995 I wouldn't hesitate to buy it I will buy one if it's real, but I will also drive down there to get it.
Joshuah666 - can you post some pics of the kit you bought ?
Thanks

Hi everyone
I am interested in importing the Aston Martin replica kit to the UK.
I think there could be a demand over here with plenty of tired XK Jags around.
I have had a quick but brief response from Jackie Johnson telling me to contact the shipping companies listed on their website. As it's tricky for me to pay a personal visit I'm relying on the comments on this forum and would appreciate if you could post any pics if someone actually gets the Aston kit.
chrisbarbers - Dec 03, 2008 - 07:53 AM
Post subject:
Ian I think you will wait a long time as this froum won't attract most people who are after an Aston replica.

I dealt with the US when I originally bought my kit and I was lucky, I got exactly what I ordered.

However, I arranged my own shipping and the first I knew that I was actually getting the car and kit was when the shipping company confirmed they had collected the kit, that said it wasn't entirely what I expected when it arrived.

Your best bet is to try and find someone (a reputable member) who is close to them to pay for and collect your kit, then you arrange shipping from them to you.

I think everyone is sceptical of this company and would advise against handing cash straight to them.

I have a Diablo SV Replica, you can see my out of date build diary on page 3 of the galleries.

Sorry no, I looked at a low mileage car a while back and saw a lot of XKs for around £10k, but they go quick, and I don't mean just the speed Smile

Your best bet may be autotrader.


Did you need parts from an XK for your project?

Nope, I like the XK and they are cheap as chips for a nice 2+2, but the rear leg room was just not enough, I was looking at a possible replacement for th MG TF, still make come back to the idea when things get better.

Ok everyone, I email the Albertville Police dept. asking about this business. This is what he sent back (word for word):

"Mr. Hubbard,



I am unfamiliar with this business and do not show a listing for it within our records.



Scott Lacks

Communications Division Supervisor"

But I forgot he has two different business' at that location.

I guess I better ask someone else.


Hello there,

I emailed the Chief Of Police in Alabama about this, This is what he stated, and by all means if you do not believe me about what i am saying to you, please i encourage you to email him for your self.

"I am familiar with this business. I cannot recommend this business. Please feel free to contact me,if I can assist you further. You can also try the Better Business Bureau website.They may be able to help with any other questions regarding other businesses and possibly this inquiry as well. Benny Womack. Chief of Police"

Then i emailed him saying "Why do you state that you do not recommend this business

He stated: "Mr.Richdale,I cannot comment further due to civil liability reasons.I hope that you understand what I am trying to tell you. Benny Womack. Chief of Police"

So this states that he is familiar with the business, i have also asked the BBB about this, awaiting a reply.

I have been looking for a lambo kit for a while and have been watching kitcarinc. If you google the address you can actually see several of the bodies outside if you use street view. Their are also a few cars like an mr2 sitting next to them. I do hope to go to alabama myself to see how good the quality is and will be glad to take pics.
