An update...

The fake Wikipedia article on Corky Coker has been deleted by Wikipedia administrators. Wikipedia deleted it because it was an obvious "vanity" article, written as an advertisement for Coker. Once again, Coker abuses an informational resource for profit. And gets caught.


And, I spoke with Kristin Brown from Discovery about OverhaulinForums.com. She said that they didn't start it. I still think that it looks like they did, but if not, then someone related to this situation, or someone with some sort of ulterior financial motive put it up. Here's another "great" quote from OverhaulinFan, the administrator of OverhaulinForums.com:

Quote:
Great shows, fun to watch Chip and the gang, and the mark's were super appreciative. Those are great shows.
Attached is a screenshot of the original fake Wikipedia article, prior to deletion.
