I once found a guy hotlinking images from my website into his internet posts and myspace pages and claiming ownership of my car.

Since he hotlinked it was REALLY easy to screw with him by replacing the images with something else with the same name

Too bad they didn't hotlink your image from flicker

Yeah, that is a favorite tactic of mine too. Particularly when the new image is of male anatomy.

My particular car is painted a 1967 color, not the color pink that would have been correct on a 65/66 car. It's the same as advertising a highland blue mustang with a photo of a car painted guardsman blue. It's an inaccurate description. It's certainly possible to have another 65 painted that color, but if this guy is actually selling a playmate pink 65, then the car he is selling should be a different color than mine. If it's the same color as mine, then it's been mispainted with a 1967 color, just as mine has been.

I called Hemmings, they said they were going to contact the seller and remove the listing, I also called the seller directly, and he claimed the car in the photo was the one for sale, the photo was taken by the guy he bought the car from, and they were rebuilding the carb, cleaning up the chrome and would have it ready in about a week.

I told him it was my car in the photo, and he then said it was just a "stock photo" and the real photos would be up in a week and he would be taking the photo of my car down then.

I'm not sure if it's really worth escalating at this point, but he's really got my blood boiling right now.

On the bright side, do you think your car is worth more or less than $21,500? If less, and this sells, it would be a good ad to pass to the appraiser next time, particularly since it is your car and all.

Mine is definately worth less at the moment, especially since I'm in the process of restoring the car. Once it's finished, I'm confident mine could pull a better price than that, though.

As a side note, the seller just removed the photos of my car and replaced them with photos of another vehicle! Thank god!

So I was right, the seller is a weasel. Good dealer- to avoid.

Well, I wouldn't send my business there after this fiasco, that's for sure. I will say that the car he's got posted now looks awfully familiar... Check out the incorrect side mirror in the new pictures, and then compare it to this:

A few other pink 1965 Mustangs Surface The Pink Mustang Blog

I think that car was listed for $15,000 on ebay back in November, the car was from North Carolina at the time. Very small world that we live in....

I just got a nice note from Hemmings, to the effect they are looking into it.
