Let's just say that the vicious little man has a legal injunction that bars him from ever using the Name Classic Motor Carriages or attacking Street Beasts by name in his defunct annual or his website.
As for the insider, I have no clue what happened to him, but I suppose that part of the reason there even is a Street Beast today, instead of an empty warehouse, is that his duplicity was proved.
I have to go to work now, after writing all this I have a butt pucker factor that is off the scale.
Me at the old factory removing the hinge bolts for the Cobra Hood...
That car is in my area even today fifteen years later.
