A friend of mine in the US purchased some stuff from Ken Lowe Race Cars in Oxenford, Gold Coast, on the advice from a few Aussie that it was pretty slick equipment.

However, the company inadvertently or otherwise billed my friends credit card twice. Both he and his bank have tried without success to have the money credited, which Ken Lowe Race Cars originally agreed to do. However it's now many months later, the bank has given up and the company have ceased responding to my friends emials. He's still a few hundred bucks out of pocket plus all the time and money he's wasted trying to get his credit.

My friend figure if the proprietor of this business has been killed in a race car accident or for some other reason has left this mortal coil, then so be it and he'll give up. On the other hand, he figures if that's not the case he'd at least like to know if the company has the same reputation here as it has with him.

Can anybody advise?

I once rang and asked about some dzus fasteners. They said they would ring back, but didn't. I went to Summit instead.

If they are still in business,and behaving the way they are,the only way to deal with situations like this is to pay them a visit,this type of situation,with overseas people involved gives all of us Aussies a bad name.............Frank

Ken Lowe is still very much alive. He is a Qld based top alcohol racer.

IMHO his prices are ridiculous and his service ordinary.

We waited 18 months for him to send a book on mechanical fuel injection that we had paid for in advance.

Forget emails or faxes use the telephone.

I read the other half of this story on RRT.

Just in case it isn't known Ken is from the US.

You could email him the address of this forum and invite him to see what people think about him and his service, He might do something if he sees what going on behind his back and how it's damaging his reputation, He should remember that it's a small world and news travels fast, especially in our chosen hobby
