    How were you supposed to be a threat to the franchise. All they had to say was not use the name or reference. Taking the two cars is a theft in my opinion. You really should push back on this.

    WOW! im soo heartbroken! I was looking forward to this build, seems like BS. Like why did they wait so long? and how is what you're doing wrong the original didn't use a 2015 mustang frame?!

    Somethings fishy about this. I can’t believe you didn’t just hand over your car to people claiming to be from the studio

    I think this is told horse s**t I love what you do and when it comes down to that it is complete bulls**t. You spent your time money and effort to make a car that looks like one from the movie yes. But who’s money and time was it yours not some million dollar company. They could have at least asked you to dismantle the car. But seizing the car that is way too over the top and honestly just a petty a** move.

    I get that it sucks, but if someone owns a copyright or legal rights to something, it's on you to get license to use it, IE the name and likeness. It sucks you lost your car, but not getting a license cause this.

    I hate to see your project gone but I think you can sue them for the car back. Eleanor is a trademark name but they stole the idea from carol Shelby saying that she is a Shelby GT500. If you see, Shelby GT500 is a trademark name. So, the movie company doesn’t own the name of that car technically, Shelby American does. The original gt500 and the Eleanor car do not look the same so they infringed on the name and changed the look of the car just like you used a new mustang to restomod your old mustang. Lastly, change the name of your project from Eleanor to GT500E. A little food for thought because I hate greedy no good people try to take money and talent away from good people and car nuts.

  • bugjuicer

    So what about if you didn't call it that? It's just an old Mustang on a new Mustang.. Do that mean every Mustang that looks like the one they used in that movie, belongs to them? And that's not even the original Elenor either

    Eleanor name is a trademark in the US. You are not allowed to name your car eleanor the same way you are not allowed to name it Harry Potter, Star Wars, The Hobbit, Pirates of the Caribbean or Game of Thrones Not. Just a Mustang, any car. Elananor, Gone in Sixty Second and Gone In 60 Seconds are protected trademarks, and B is for Build as a company-yt was way over fair use of that brand names in their videos. Thee shape, make and model of the car are irrelevant.

    The fact he lwt them take a car and lose all that money is bullshit. He shoulda fought tooth n nail and not let them take it. Change it w.e but thats def illegal. He has the title they cant just say oh now its ours cause it looks like ours. If I was him ida made damn sure they paid me every penny I had into the car or if would be staying in my garage. Period. Y'all law people out there can say w.e but id be standing there with an army of dudes armed to the teeth saying look u either pay me so I'm not losing money on car or ur not getting it without getting shot sinple as that. If he had the title then they stole it. Period.

    Why couldn't you just redo the appearance of the car. As far as I'm aware the car is completely unique and cosmetically can be changed. I don't understand how they can legally take "YOUR" unique car if there issue was how it looked.

  • Craig Chen

    You should have got a new lawyer. There's so many different styles of Ford Mustang, your lawyer should have work out a compromise with her and modify your Mustang so it won't be the Eleanor.
    Sorry to hear that you have to give the Mustang to them after spending so much money and time on it.
    I was looking forward to see it completed.

    The original “Elenwhore” that is patented from the 1974 movie is a piss yellow 1971 SportTop Mustang made to look like a 1973 model. The original designer of the “character” car is dead. His greedy wife is now the owner of the patent and doesn’t care if it’s a car, bus, tank or anything else using the name... She is getting paid. I wouldn’t even name your child or pet that name. She might take them. How many pet dogs named Old Yeller do you think Disney confiscated? I’ll bet none...

    Ford should sue them for renaming their mustang as Eleanor. Clearly a copyright & trademark infringement since it looks like the Ford Mustang. Or did they get special permission or license from Ford to rename and trademark their mustang as Eleanor? Was the issue over using the name Eleanor? That would be the only thing they could trademark. Any slight deviance in design completely changes from their trademark. For example, I know when it comes to machinery they easily get around any trademark issues by calling it a different name and merely changing the design of the door handle on the machine. Everything else can be identical and by merely changing the door handle changes the design and they can longer claim a trademark infringement. If just making something look similar could get you sued for a trademark infringement then a lot of car manufacturers should sue Hyundai for trademark infringement since they design cars that look a lot like Fords, BMW's, etc. So the only thing that could get you sued would seem to be by using the same name, such as Eleanor. If I take a mustang and buy body parts I can make it look however I want as long as I'm not naming the same thing as another car that is named and that name is trademarked for that purpose to be used to name a car based on a specific design. Anything that differs in the design changes from what is trademarked.

    So they came and took the car?? I understand you may not be able to build an Elanor replica and use it for commercial purposes or entertainment purposes without getting permission but that car is your property. I could see them forcing you to change something to make it not an Elanor. It wasn't even finished was it? At what point does the car become an Elanor replica? I could see them making you repaint it but that's about it. smh, this is nuts
