In 2017 I ordered over $1000 parts from George, who was recommended by JC Auromotive, Lynwood Washington. I knew that the parts were individually made and it would take an extended time for delivery. In January 2019, I emailed him for a progress report and recieved no reply. After a little investigation, I found sketchy information from JC Automotive that George had suffered a serious health problem and may have died.
Upon investigating my options for recovery of funds, I contacted the Queensland Office of Fair Trade, asking for information on how to proceed. They did a cursory investigation and "got no response". They suggested that I contact a laywer to see if I could contact his survivors and get refund from the estate.
In August 2019, I sent George a letter at his home address in Trewantin Qld, 4565, Australia, and got no response. I also could not find a lawyer (Barrister) in the area that would respond to my request for guidance. Soooooo, I resigned myself to the fact that I was SOL (short on luck).

LO AND BEHOLD, on 24 February, I got a call from George!!!!!! He tells me that he infact did suffer from a Stroke, and was found 2 days later lying on the floor in his house. Multiple Hospitalizations and surgeries folloed by extensive rehabilitation followed. He still suffers ill effects of the Stroke, including some movement and vision problems.

He tells me that he is accepting no new orders UNTIL he cleans up his backlog of existing orders and is working on that now.

It is now time for all the understandable negativity to stop. He could have just as easily dropped from existance and no one would have been the wiser. I now give him credit for trying to hold up his end of the bargain. I have sent and recieved email from him at georgelaurie@bigpond.com

I still would never send him any money again. I didn't send him that much and was only ordering something he said he had in stock and still had to go through a lot to get him to perform. He even tried to imply that I was trying to scam him by trying to get a refund.

Good luck.

The negativity stops when he performs. Plan and simple. When did he have this stroke?? I'll bet it was many YEARS after he took my money. Somehow, we've become a society of excuses....no one has to do anything other than offer up some excuse..... and the lame-ass medical condition excuse is at the top of the list.

<p>Early in Laurie's business, I learned after repeated lies, not to trust ANYTHING that George Laurie was writing about his living conditions, his mold and equipment problems, his health, etc. etc. He told me lie after lie after lie..... when he did even bother to write back. Did he have some massive stroke? If he did and has recovered, great. But I suspect it is another lying delay tactic. But, I've also seen over and over again, not just in this hobby, that people will keep going back to liars and charlatans and outright CROOKS as if they think that party will treat THEM right. I guess its one of the problems we humans have. Haven't done business with George other than my FIRST order which was for tail lenses that took almost four years to receive. That order was placed probably fifteen years ago. First and LAST.</p>

I'm glad he seems to want to get his back orders done. That's a good 1st step towards setting things right. I wish him all the best luck to get it done.

And yet I ordered a grille emblem from George for my '58 Chrysler a few years ago, and true to his word just 2 weeks later a gorgeous piece arrived in NY in perfect condition. Go figure.

That's good news about George. I will try to contact him to make me some more parts. Steve.

Yes, I'm going to order more parts from old Georgie too. First, though, I'm going to invest all my money with Bernie Madoff then have a talk with Colin Kapernick and Michael Vick to see if they'd like to play again.
