The Winston Salem County Journal reported on June 3, 2013 that a car restoration business owned by Robert Allen McElreath is under a restraining order issued by the North Carolina Attorney General. The business is no longer allowed to take orders or advance deposits from customers after 52 complaints had been received over the course of the past year from dissatisfied customers. According to the report there have been a number of complaints from as far back as 2009.
There are a number of companies owned by Mr. McElreath that are being temporarily restrained from doing business. Pick a Pony, Build a Bandit, Pontiac Pros, Common Man Classic Hot Rods and Discount Automotive Restorations have all been named in the aforementioned court action. This is bad news for the restoration industry as a whole as no one needs this kind of bad publicity for their profession.
