      @USRNME UNKNWN86 Almost. What I meant was, according to the court, you CAN build a, let’s call it “Tribute” Eleanor. And they can do nothing to stop you. But you would be I’ll advised to write a story, book, or movie script that had a Ford Mustang named Eleanor in it. Because the holder(s) of the Gone in 60 Seconds literary rights could possibly seek actions against you.

      @GrayRaceCat Build one and call it Ellanor instead. It stated the car is not a character. so i dunno how they could copywrite the name eleanor in the context of a movie character at all.

    You should be able to take them back to court and sue them for everything they cost you, since there is now precedent set by a higher court. Good on Shelby for slapping Denice down. (Also, she DEFINITELY did not create or design that car)

      That's not how a settlement works. And anyway, all this shows is why you shouldn't give in to over-reaching beeeeyatches and make them prove their case in court when you know you're in the right. Unfortunately, not everyone has the money for legal fees to do that, which is what those sociopaths count on, and what's wrong with our legal system. Chris should have filed an anti-SLAPP counter-suit.

      She didn't create or design either of the cars. She is living off of other people's dreams and name.

    I think Donut did a pretty good job explaining the situation with Halicki's business model, being a "license troll" firm, they obtained the license for the character of "Elanor" from the movie and then went around with the accuracy of a blindfolded skeet shooter trying to sue anyone with a silver Mustang with black racing stripes.
    Your theory is not far off and I hope to see more from your shop in the future.

      @Adierit That's not even the most ridiculous part of it: Halicki is the rights holder to the *original* Gone in 60 Seconds, in which "Eleanor" is a yellow with single wide black stripe 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1. The only thing it has in common with the design we more widely know as "Eleanor" is... being a Mustang.

    Its so unfortunate that the Halicki team has spent years going out of their way to really destroy people's love for Eleanor. I always wanted one ever since I first saw the 2000 film. And I genuinely believe the vast majority of people just wanted to have a piece of that iconic Shelby Mustang history.
    I'm glad the right side came out on top on this and justice was eventually served. Although, it NEVER should've reached that point. Congrats for the win.

    The difference now is you can cite precedent, which is 99% of what the court follows. When the judge asks if the character is copyrightable, you can say "no, your honor, per this other case Shelby vs Halikki it was found lacking standing"
    also 4 movies? so three where Eleanor was a yellow 73 Mustang, and ONE where it was a silver 67.

    I was pissed off when I heard your project was being litigated because I was very much looking forward to seeing your version of the car. Carol Shelby was the designer of the base for the Halicki car and that's why it seemed odd that she could claim ownership of the vehicle as a movie character. I am glad you will be redoing the project and I am impressed with your attitude about the whole deal after being ripped off by an overzealous legal team.

However Carroll Shelby wasn't a stranger to "Trying it on" either, especially in his later life from what I got from the media and heard.

    Could you imagine if the company who owns the rights to General Lee went after all those builders? That car clearly stands out and was always a 69 dodge charger with 01, so its easy to see. I personally like doing body swaps since its an easy way to get modern options in an old style body, but it sucks thinking some crazy person could come after me if they really wanted to.

    i Always thought the Elenore car was awesome too till that whole deal went down and they took the car.. I dont think of the car the same anymore.. but hearing this story and the tribute car idea,, that is awesome and im glad you pointed out where the credit was actually due.. Carroll Shelby Definitely deserves all the credit. I hope that u can get the car back, if its still around... just because.. Cant wait for that build .. Awesome video by the way..

    21:59 An American hero for sure. Not only was Carroll Shelby all those things you mentioned, he also did Texas proud and he has a chili kit that’s sold in stores. I’d definitely recommend trying it.

    These days tons of people are trying to recreate the designs that make cars look like what they use to and what some look like today. In most cases a nice set of wheels will bring any car back from the grave in the eyes of the beholder. With you and other artist like yourself doing what you do, it gives more than just entertainment to the people that have Classic Cars not running. Just watching isn't enough. DIY dents, refurbishing, mechanical, electrical, etc., is what your channel about and having fun in the process. It was Bull from the the beginning what they did to you and you should be compensated in some way. I understand your wishes for not wanting Eleanor anymore and I support that but man I wish we could see your creation finished. I'm not a Ford person myself but your Ford was more than just a car with a name, its was something even a Chevy enthusiast would love to have in their collection.

    Yo! Been waiting to hear your take on this situation. I swear, I did handsprings when I heard the news.
    Time to build out your "Notanor." Can't wait to see what you do with it.

    I’m glad that after the recent events everyone can make their own decision on whether heliki and her team are just shameless toe rags trying to steal money through intimidation. You’ve performed faultlessly and with integrity. Great that Shelby took them to school 😂

    LegalEagle brought me here... Especially the scene at 21:21 to 22:00. All I gotta say about what you said about Carroll Shelby are 2 words: FACTS & RESPECT! Shelby's both an icon & a hero in the American Car Culture. He created the GT40 for heaven's sake. The Ford GT lineup wouldn't existed today in not for the GT40.

    The original film “Gone in Sixty Seconds” did feature an Eleanor, as a 71/73 Mustang Mach 1. That Eleanor was even credited like any other character and actor in a film.

    Right on, and I would also say that you nailed it on the head with saying that the "Eleanor" car is actually a Shelby car. Man that truly sucks you had to go through all that, and honestly Halicki should make good and return your car to you or at least repay you for the cost to settle her BS crazy cat lady claims.

    Shelby has put his talents into many different vehicles and not all were fords. I think that a tribute car built to honor him is an awesome ending to this story.

    If your story was even a small reason for shelby to take those idiots to court damn thats legal revenge and i love it. The helicopter 🚁 restoration guy from greece. I am currently rebuilding a robinson helicopter and you are an inspire to start crazy projects
