______________________________________________________________________________I had been wanting to buy a proper "affordable" sports car for a long time but I just couldn't put my finger on one. Out of the blue, I remembered the S2000 and started looking around for one for a cheap price. I knew that I'll have to buy one in an abused condition and will sell it after a few months to buy a newer car. This was only until I saw Frank's ad online. This was little expensive that others online but a near mint S2000 ap1 with 30k miles on it being bone stock. I saw this online on Thursday night, went there Friday afternoon, saw it, drove it and booked in one hour. Dealing with Frank and buying such cars have their own excitement that a heartless dealer can never provide. Just after I paid the deposit we sat for hours discussing the all the great cars in our opinion, Frank's racing anecdotes, his scrap full of cars he has owned and the races he has been in.He suggested near by mountain roads I could drive on. Most dealers want you out of their office after you've paid the money.
I have taken this to the local S2000 owner's meeting here in the Phoenix area and it has stunned every person till now. They are surprised to find an S2000 ap1 in such a condition. Frank, thanks a bunch for this experience. I'll stop by one of these days with some beer and we'll go over your scrapbook in detail.It'd be great if you can email me the pictures you had clicked.
Quick tip: If you're buying a performance car from him, ask him to test drive it for you. You will take a lot of years to even begin to learn the way he drives performance cars.
Hi Frank!I cannot tell you how happy I am to write this email! I spent months looking for the perfect truckto tow my horse, and had such a difficult time finding anything I liked in the price range I wasable to afford. Finally, you posted a Dodge Ram 2500 on your web site and I just had to have it!It was exactly what I wanted- it was in pristine condition and it was a great price compared toeverything else on the market.From the moment I first spoke with you about the truck, you were straightforward, honest and hadwonderful integrity. You were willing to make yourself available for me to come see the truck at atime that was convenient for me. You took the time to explain everything about the truck to me(as this girl had never owned a diesel truck before... Glow plugs?!?!) and even went so far as toresearch and print out a brochure for the exhaust brake that was installed by the last owner.Wow, what customer service! Even better, though, was your effort to make sure I was totallythrilled with the truck before it left your shop- new motor in the driver's seat, new headlights,even a new gas cap! Finally, if that wasn't enough to convince me that you were the best personto ever buy a car from, you offered to let me take one of your other cars to an appointment thatcame up while you were installing the driver's seat motor for me. Seriously, what other car dealeroffers that level of care and attention to their customers' needs?Suffice it to say, I am so very grateful that my new truck came through you! I have alreadyrecommended you to multiple people and will continue to do so. I have never had an easier, smoother,faster car buying experience, and I have certainly never had one that was more fun!Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything, Frank! I'll be calling you when I'm ready to startlooking for my next car. :)Big hugs to you and Ace,Cynthia
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for my recent vehicle purchase.
Your ability to show the vehicle in an extremely timely manner, and the attention to detailwhile showing the truck was insurmountable to any experience I have ever had shopping fora new/used vehicle.
The amount of personal attention you can get by shopping with Arizona Classics instead ofa large dealership that just wants to make a quick sale is second-to-none. I have alreadybegun referring family and friends to check out www.azclassics.com for their next vehiclepurchase.
Although I do plan on keeping my newly purchased Ford F-350 for some time, I will lookto use your services again in the future.
Brent HinesProject Superintendent_______________________________________________________________________Arizona Classic - An A1 Vehicle Purchasing ExperienceAre there truly any folks around that enjoy the vehicle buying experienceencountered when purchasing used vehicles from various car dealerships? I suspect ifthere are, these people would be few and far between and I'm not one of them. Quitefrankly, I can't stand going from one dealership to another looking for a used vehicle topurchase and then going through the cumbersome negotiation buying process once I'vefound something to my liking. The entire A-Z here is something I definitely don'tappreciate and can do without. That's why I would (and have) recommended purchasinga used vehicle from Arizona Classic. My car buying experience was easy, painless andnot typical dealer fashion. Why?* Direct Owner Interaction: I dealt directly with Frank, the owner of ArizonaClassics. Not a sales representative; his manager; and his manager. No gangingup and no pressure - none.* No Misc Fees: Sales tax and emissions fee testing was all I paid. No hiddencharges such as acquisition fees, documentation fees, inspections fees, or anyother misc fees traditional dealers seem to come up once you've decided topurchase a vehicle.* Quality Vehicle/Great Market Price: As Arizona Classic is a small dealerselling at wholesale prices, I paid less than average retail price for the vehicle Ipurchased and it was/is in great condition.* Quick: I was in and out in 30 minutes - keys in hand. Compare that to hours at atraditional dealership.The above just about says it all other than the next time I need to purchase a usedvehicle, I plan to tap Frank to let him know what I want.Michael Reisig - Gilbert, AZPurchased 2008 Mazda CX-9____________________________________________________________"Doing business with Frank Benefiel of Arizona Classics was a total pleasure.Frank is a man of integrity and does what he says he will do.My vehicle purchase was clean and fair...."Paul Taylor, Sedona, Az.__________________________________________________________________Hi Frank:Terry and I really appreciated all that you did for us last Thursday.

Enjoying cruising in a nice car. There's not a squeakor rattle anywhere. I checked the highway MPG recently.Winslow-Munds Park-around Munds Park, Munds Park-Flagstaff, totwo malls in Flagstaff and home to Winslow. 29.4 MPG I was stunned.(Cruise control helps MPG I think.)If I had a place to keep it, I'd get a hot-rod as an investment. Won't havea garage even when I move.Best Regards,Todd RothWinslow, AZ________________________________________________________________Good morning, Frank.
