I agree - CRG should be applauded for having the cajones to reactivate the original thread - it's members and the hobby deserve that much and they I think recognize that... Thanks at least from me!
I have the feeling that we will never know exactly what has occurred with the car in question but I feel everyone has a pretty good idea of what transpired in spite of those who have chimed in to put the heat on classicgary or classic gary as he is known now, to discredit him into retracting his original story and apparently in effect gagging him further by legal or other threats.
Unfortunately there are far too many people with big $$ interests involved here (along with many obviously supportive friends thereof) all who would take a beating financial or reputation-wise if all of the story unfolded completely - so for that exact reason I have concluded that the true story will never be fully stated.
I have read enough between the Yenko, TC, and site here to come to my own conclusion(s) about what occurred and I would imagine most of you have as well. I just hope that the interest shown over the past 24 hours in this instance will show CRG, TC, and other sites especially those specifically involved in Camaros - that there are a lot of people who want to know the truth and details about specific vehicles that surface occasionally. It should also be apparent by now that they have a duty to their members to allow a certain amount of detailed information to be exchanged even if it means denting reputations or exposing fraudulant dealings in the process.
If BJ can and does get off the hook when suspect vehicles they selectively advertise and knowingly ignore certain facts about, in order to strenuously promote a sale from which they prosper directly - then it should be possible for sites like the CRG and others to have a similar disclaimer involved to protect them from the exchange of information about vehicles they supect are fradulant, without impending legal doom hanging over their heads and necessitating censure of discussions.
I, for one have nothing to hide about my own vehicle and I feel I reside with the majority of owners in that sense. As for the others who have agendas contrary to what the CRG and TC sites were designed to do (promote and foster the brand, and discover and research the history thereof) they in my opinion, have no business being here in the first place and if they feel unwelcome or threatened by information exchange as such, then so be it...
