Although I don't particularly agree with the way scmods went about the original project, he does deserve some credit for creating the thing in the first place. This guy just wants to dismiss his work and add a lie on top of it.
It's the same issue I have with that... "Doge - Bluesmobile" on youtube, that dismisses R.Shield's work and claims theirs is original as well.
I feel if someone is going to deliberately lie about their car they better expect some flak.
A misinformed buyer is one thing (although that is very rare), but an outright falsehood is another.

That reporter that Zac e-mailed wrote, "If you (and other folks who could verify what you told me) could leave a comment on the story, that would bring it to my editor's attention and allow me to further investigate the story."
After 31 Bids the car did not sell yet again! $4,050. Reserve not met!
It's not going to sell. At least not anywhere near their asking price. Too many people are "hip" to the story behind it. Best they can do is sell it at market value or pack it away and keep it quiet for 3-5 years and try again.

The ad has expired so we'll watch for its return. Unless Jürgen bought it then we'll mark it as sold. ---
I noticed how it was shipped from MI to MN. It was done with uShip which I've never heard of. It looks like you post your car with starting and finishing location, and let people bid on the contract to ship it for you.

U ship is scary, most "shippers" putting bids in are actually brokers who take your deposit before they look for a truck or company to ship. Once they have your money and you sign a contract you are stuck, sometimes for months while the seller of the item is sitting waiting, calling you, your item (and my nightmare was an engine) sat at the end of the guys driveway from the day of the supposed pick up for over a month while the shipping broker told me "we don't have any trucks in the area". My friend sat on a car for a year that he sold on ebay waiting for "a truck to be in the area". We're less than two hours from NYC, there are many trucks in the area. You can save money shopping around yourself, you don't need to pay a broker. JP Logistics out of CA is a great company, shipped my Amphicar from CA to NY enclosed for $1,750. George at JP is a hell of a nice guy, they haul for Bugatti, Laborghini, Ferrari, Bentley, Rolls Royce, ect. I'd pay a little more for that kind of service. Be careful, I've seen and had horror stories with these car shippers, and brokers don't care about anything but price. Adam
