OBSI seizes "illegal" Shelby Mustangs

It's not illegal to make a "clone" but it is illegal to remove a VIN plate for use on another car. If these people have been in the restoration business for any amount of time, they surely would know this. VIN fraud is rampant in this type of business. For this business to sell these cars for the astronomical amounts being reported, they should have known that sooner or later they would be caught. These people may "build one hell of a car" but the bottom line is they also committed FRAUD by removing VIN plates from lesser vehicles and placing them on aftermarket bodies. And it's this type of bad, fraudulent behavior that makes it harder for reputable restorers to do legitimate business.  (Jul 8, 2010 | post #11)
