If he wasnt called out it would have been passed off as a fake. Ok so now he has admitted it, that is all fine and dandy.

Fast forward 15 years and 2 owners down the road and it will be passed off again as the real deal. Thats the problem.

Looks like it was a successful attempt to keep things on the up and up as far as the DC.Com community is concerned. I will wait around to see if someone that hasn't been around and has a pocket full of cash and a dream of owning a special classic car jumps on that car, then goes searching for a web site that supports these wonderful cars and ends up here smiling from ear to ear excited to show off his perfectly restored Superbird.

It's sad that the perception of a car can be so drastically affected by a re-popped inaccurate fender tag. In defense of the car...she looks wonderful AND is still a real Superbird! I'm certain it would have been better accepted if it either had it's original EW1 fender tag or NO fender tag at all!

Exactly. I have a client looking for a Superbird. She would pay more for limelight four speed over a white column auto. That is the definition of fraud, anyway you look at it.

Someone may have used "ask seller a question".   Or he may lurk or even be a member here.     

It would not surprise me if someday,  this car may show up with one of those fake Ebay build sheets from seller "vin-number aged".     Provenance priced from only $289.00    2thumbs

Doug provided proof of what the car was back in the day.....seller of the car must have seen that but does not acknowledge the pictures or the DSAC registry form......I bet he's backpedaling and will be stuck with that 'Bird for a while now, unless he can find some unsuspecting person to con the car off to him

Well, here in Texas when we’re walking through the pasture and we see a rattle snake or cow pie, we do the “Texas two step” and avoid getting bit or stink on your boots. Any way. Looks like the internet may have informed the public and an unsuspecting person won’t pay the price.

One failed ATTEMPT at a fake car sale(no sale even) has tarnished the guys reputation. Didn't even make $1 because of it.

I might be biased because I like the green colour but I do not think it would be worth any less ( or more ) painted this colour than the same car right back to factory tag specifications

I could see that.   It will take a buyer agreeable to the color/transmission/rear end "upgrades" that wants a really pretty car versus a restored to the tag car.    As the old saying goes, there is an ass for every seat.

The big dollar cars seem to always take a hit if not "correct". Fake tag aside, say this car had no tag on it. The seller said here is the real tag from when it white an auto. Id say value unaffected compared to it being white.

BUT most buyers with the $$ of these cars are purists.
