It's a nightmare. Johnny Rosen, whom some of you know as an eccentric Imperial parts dealer, had been pursuing me to restore his 59 Imperial that he has owned for 40 years and not driven in 30 plus years. I agreed and all seemed normal until the car was being loaded. Perhaps due to separation anxiety, he went ballistic when the car was loaded by the car carrier he hired to bring the car to my shop in another state. Long story short, he tried having the tow truck company, driver and office people, arrested for stealing his car. Because he was the one who contacted and hired the tow, the case was quickly dropped. Now he is coming after me, accusing me of stealing the car, which I never even took delivery of and is stuck in a lot near his home till he pays them what he owes.
I'm looking for any stories of him becoming hostile and stories of people getting burned, by him so that I can build up some type of defense.

Run away from this guy as fast as you can. There's a reason he has been kicked out of multiple publications. I personally know several people who never received their parts. Just search "Rosen" on the forum here if you don't believe me.

Yes, I should have researched him. Thanks for the feedback and links. I now have a copy of the police report he filed and its clear the police realized that he was out of is mind. I've cut all ties with the guy.

Location: Upplands Väsby, Sweden
Jonny was here in Sweden about 10 years ago. Power Big Meet.
He had very good nos Parts and used parts with him. But when all the sellers were out of the area it would be closed.
So Jonny hadn't shown up. Of which the cleaners brought Jonny's all parts and there were many parts.
And put everything in a pile outside the gates. Don't know if Jonny showed up later?
