Holy crow. One of my dream cars, the 1967 Mustang Eleanor “hero” car from the Gone in 60 Seconds movie, is for sale. I don’t know how much the owners are asking for it, but it’s a guarantee it’s many times above my budget:

F that lady. The lady who owns all the rights to it has made car enthusiasts life hell over the years. Don't be surprised if you get a cease and desist for mentioning the E name in this thread and posting pictures without expressed written consent. If not familiar, look what happened to B is For Build YouTube's channel. That's just the most recent example.

I figured the B for Build thing was bound to happen. It’s like building a replica of the Batmobile to make money off of; if Warner Bros caught wind of it, the lawyers will inevitably come knocking.

But people HAVE built Batmobile's and Warner didn't do anything, among many other movie cars replicas. Look at KITT from Knight Rider as a prime example. Regarding the E car, she's taken it to a whole other level. Not simply stop the build, not change the titles to the videos and referencing the name or pay all proceeds generated by the videos. They straight up repoed the car based off it likeness.

It’s only relatively recently that WB firmly established its copyrights to the Batmobile in court which is why previous Batmobile builds have occurred:

With that said, these companies do have some discretion on what to pursue (which is also another reason why Batmobile builds still exist and don’t face seizures like B for Build), and WB hasn’t used a strong of a legal hand as Denice Halicki. I agree Denice has been very over-the-top in her pursuit to protect the Eleanor copyright, and it does a great disservice to her brands.
