The first red flag that caught my attention was how they transformed the car to exact Z/28 specifications.WHAT! There's no transforming of a car unless you mean to deceive. I understand clones but advertise them as such. WOW definitely buyer beware.

Maybe it's just me but when I read "transformed" that tells me right away it's a clone, just a different way of saying it.  I don't see it as deceiving at all.  They all say it so many ways now, replica, tribute, reproduction etc...  Doesn't matter to me how they say it.  Still gets the message across that the car isn't a real one.

In today's climate...transformed is the politically correct (ad nauseam) way to say clone.

Those changes are VERY significant from the 'packet of lies' that the original ad was....  If I knew that seller personally, I don't think I'd think very much of him after reading that ad...  ;(

Looks like the car was pulled from the auction.

Yeah, well, I look at the other side too.  For the one person that might have upset, it probably made a dozen more happy that they didn't plunk down good money for a  clone.  Hopefully those honest people realize the importance of CRG and stop others from making that mistake.

Don't think they pulled it because it was the right thing to do.Even though the auction company list a no responsibility clause you can still sue the owner and the auction company.When you say you will list the vin publicly as an issue car it fears both partys into removing the car from auction.Showing pre auction you informed them it had issues will hold them liable for not taking appropriate action.

Way to go guys.   Frankly, I am surprised that Mecum changed the wording on the description.   They have historically relied on the "representation" of the owner, even if it is obvious the owner is either misinformed, lying, or both.

I have become suspect of the pedigree of any car selling at Mecum or coming out of Florida with "documentation".

For what its worth nothing has changed with Mecum, I just got back from the Indy auction and this time they had a big block convertible with a bogus trim tag. Lot S165

I was there Friday. Last time there I could walk anywhere but now areas are roped off for bidders only. Seems to me it's getting away from us ordinary folks. My 2 cents.
