Police have released CCTV footage of a man they want to speak to in connection with the vandalism attack:
The cars were damaged at Hafod Car Sales on Neath Road, Hafod.
Owner Arash Karimbeik said he found the vandalised cars when he came to work.
He said: "Somebody thew paint stripper over the cars, there is a lot of damage.
"I couldn't believe it when I saw what had happened. I don't know why the cars were attacked.
"The pain stripper went all over the fronts of the seven cars — I am talking to the insurance company to work out how much the damage is going to cost.
"They threw the liquid through my fence.
"This is a busy area and I am hoping someone saw something."
The attack happened around 8pm on Sunday, and police are studying CCTV footage in a bid to identify the culprit or culprits.
South Wales Police are appealing for anybody with information to come forward.
A spokesman said: "Police are investigating an incident of criminal damage which occurred at Hafod Car Sales at around 8pm on January 20.
"It is believed that a quantity of liquid — which has been identified as pain stripper — was thrown at cars on the forecourt of the garage, resulting in damage. In total seven cars were damaged.
