Business Wire Press Release

Jan. 23, 2006--Following the filing last week of a lawsuit brought by W. Axl Rose against Andy Cohen and Beverly Hills Classic Cars there have been a number of questions from the media. In response to those questions Mr Rose's attorney Howard Weitzman commented, "Andy Cohen, owner of Beverly Hills Classic Cars defrauded Axl out of more than $150,000. Mr. Cohen sold one of Axl's cars and pocketed the money as well as keeping a $20,000 deposit on two cars he committed to order on Axl's behalf but failed to do so. We are suing to recover the money that Mr. Cohen converted for his own personal use and are asking for punitive damages to be awarded because of the intentional breach of contract and theft committed by the defendants. Over a period of 4 years Axl bought a number of cars from Mr. Cohen and had built what he thought was a trusting relationship with him. It is unfortunate that Mr. Cohen abused that trust and not only failed to deliver on his promises but also took over $150,000 of Axl's money. Axl has reluctantly sued because Mr. Cohen continually represented to Axl over the better part of a year that he would repay the money and broke each promise for repayment leaving Axl no choice but to file this complaint to get his money returned."

Axl is a nice guy despite all the chaos in his life. Axl gave this car salesman ample opportunity to make due on his payment and promises and it looks like Axl had no choice to sue to recover what was his.

Like in any lawsuit, there are 2 sides to every story.

I have no idea who this Mr. Cohen is or anything about his car dealership. Just seems odd that Axl was doing business with him for 4 years, and if he bought a number of cars there, one would assume all the transactions ran smoothly. All of a sudden and without provication the guy rips him off for $150,000? Just seems strange...

For those not familiar with vehicles mentioned, here they are:

"Rose contends that Beverly Hills Classic Cars took his deposits but violated oral agreements to get him a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo and a 2005 Porsche GT3."

Porsche GT3:

"The suit also contends the dealer sold his consigned 1999 Ferrari Marinello but never paid him a promised $135,000 of the proceeds."

And here it is, Ferarri Maranello:

Quite a collection. I wonder which other cars he's got.

It's not an issue of it being a conspiracy theory. We've heard one side of the arguement and it would be foolish to make any kind of judgement on the matter without getting all the facts.

wouldn't the person who is now driving the car that axl sold & never got paid for' receiving stolen goods?

Could be, could be....

Here in Spain these kind of things happen very frequently...unfortunately. Something like this happened to the father of a good friend of mine when he got to buy a second hand Porsche, it was stolen and in the end he lost the money and the car..too bad, too bad :no:

Highly unlikely, as the person who bought the car bought it in good faith. As long as he paid value for it, and it wasn't a scam between the new owner & the dealer, its really not considered stolen. Axl had a contract with the dealer to sell the car. The dealer did that, but then did not uphold his end of the contract in giving Axl the profits.
