Cobretti ViperV8

It has been a full two years since I last posted about this liar and arch crook, Busbridge. I see on his website, which I thought I’d have another look to see if he was still up to all his lying. Well of course you can never stop a pathological liar, especially one who through his lies is able to make a living off those lies.

Looking at his brochure I can see brazen photos of the Jaguar based chassis that I designed together with my son and with the help of an engineeer I paid to help. A chassis that I over the next 6 years made improvements to as I built many full cars and could see these improvements were needed.

It can be clearly seen on his photos that it is a copy of my chassis and apart from a few minor alterations like sloping the fronts of the footwells, all the rest it entirely the same. So not only is the design copied but of course so is the trade name he applies to it. That of ‘Viper’, for this is the name I called my Cobra replica starting in January 1986, long before I even had the mistfortune to meet this crook and take him and his brother on as my London agents. And that was the start of him conniving and scheming to steal my business.As soon as he knew that Chrysler were applying to register Viper, he approached them and asked £500,000 for the trade mark name ‘Viper’saying he owned it. ( I sucessfully took on Chrysler and won registration, which then was taken off me due to Busbridges lies which the IPO believed and I not being able to fun a High Court appeal action, could do nothing.

I can see he is still trying to hide his theft which happened in 1991 when I running my business under the name of Classic Replicas after having had the previous business Brightwheel closed down due to partnership problems. He does this by trying to have you belive that he was able to start selling his copy as if by magic accompnied of course by lies. He would have you believe that his Cobra copy originates from only a company called Sheldonhurst, whose Cobra Replica was carried on by Brightwheel. Whilst it is true that Brightwheel did carry on making the Sheldonhurst Cobra (with their OK) that at the end of 1985 when Sheldonhurst shut their business down.  What he does hide is that the Sheldonhurst Cobra was only Granada based and my Jaguar based Cobra was an entirely new designed chassis which obviously due to the complete difference in the front and rear suspension between the two cars, meant that the Jaguar chassis had to be obviously a lot different.

By doing this sleight of hand he makes it appear that somehow he was legally allowed to copy the replica that Brightwheel was making and selling to Sept 1989. Completely missing out that from then to April 1991 he was carrying on acting as my London agent for my new company ‘Classic Replicas’. I then went to switzerland to make a racing Cobra for my Swiss agent and whilst my back was turned he did the dastardly act of stealing my designs, trade mark Viper and business.

Of course being the arch, pathological liar he was during the many tribunal hearings from 1992 to 2010 when he massively lied all the way and those civil service idiots believed every word of his.  He even lied that he was able to legally copy and use my trade mark because when Brightwheel closed THEY owed him money, so this was how he got that money. Now think about that, will you. He was my agent so how did I OWE HIM MONEY?? For an agent would always owe the company, money for sales they made of that companies products. For I never gave him those kits to sell, for free…he had to pay for them! Yet the IPO believed all that.

I have said in previous posts that this Jaguar XJ6 based kit is now 15 years out of date as those cars are collectors items, fetching good money and hardly a cheap donor car to now use. Because he has no ability as a designer and can only copy other people, he is unable to design a modern alternative kit using more modern donor parts. The same goes for his Sierra based kit if he is still flogging that too. For to pay and engineering company to come up with TWO new designs would cost a bomb, so he sticks to these old out of date designs when everyone else in the industry has moved on years ago.

What I am going to do is in my next post which will be soon, I will include photos of my chassis and alongside a photo of his. The photos of my chassis were all taken just after Brightwheel closed and one taken in 1991 in Germany (the year he stole the design and long after Brightwheel closed.) Also I will include a copy of the sworn statement his brother made to the 2010 tribunal hearing when he confirmed that Robert his brother copied and stole my trade mark and my designs. You can then decide who is telling the truth.

And if I am lying, why doesn’t Busbridge take me to court for this and calling him a crook and a criminal, which if he wasn’t, it would be slander etc.? Which of course he never has.

Look out for the next post and damning evidence.

I am sure that Liar Busbridge is hoping that by now I would have snuffed it. Sorry to disappoint, you Liar & Crookboy, for I am still going strong and very healthy unlike you, you sorry-looking weed of a specimen.

Cobretti Engineering & Ian Ayre latest article

In my last post I told you he’d written a further lying article about Cobretti and I now have been given it so can relate all the latest lies spouted by this arch liar.
Go to my sister blog on Kitcarmagazines.blogspot.co.uk and read the quite long post on this matter. This blog also gives you info on the way kit car mags in this country are almost as bad as Cobretti Engineering is. IE run by lying duplicitous twats, like Tanner (now in jail)

Happy reading which I hope will educate you.

Cobretti Engineering and Ian Ayre

Told the other day that this parasite Ian Ayre who I have written about before is back on the UK scene after I thought he’d gone for good to the States.
Back in the early 90’s when he was writing for various kitcar magazines, mainly I think for Which Kit but could have been for Tanners ‘Kitcar’ he accepted a free copy of my Viper off the crook Busbridge. Of course you never get ‘Owt for Nowt’ and he got it quite plainly so he would write endless articles about how good my car was.Yet he never once had the guts or honesty to admit that what he built was a car that was designed by me and copied by rat Busbridge.
Now he’s at it again and has written an article apparently extolling the Busbridge empire as being an incredibly fantastic outfit. What shits me off is that it looks like Complete Kitcar has featured it in their magazine. If this is the case then it shows that they too are as bad as Tanner was for unmitigated lies, because they know the true story as I told them it way back and even gave them a copy of my book ‘Justice Denied’ which chronicles the whole story in detail.
When I get a copy of this I will report further but in the meantime carry on being wary of doing any business with Cobretti as Busbridge is a liar and a thief and I will highlight all the lies that are told about him and his Cobretti business, founded on intellectual property of mine he stole.

Cobretti Engineering More on the Rat.

Yesterday I was sorting out my papers on my 23 year fight with this crook and came across the papers that I accrued when I decided to attack the bastard, by taking him through the small claims court over his continually misleading the public. This by having copies on his website of magazine articles he’d got his old mate Tanner (who as you now know is another crook, safely ensconced in one of her Majesty’s prisons, to publish in the old Kitcar magazine, now defunct, thank God). This gave the impression that certain cars (Vipers) he shows on this website of his, are cars made by him from kits he manufactured. He also makes claims in these articles boasting about how good the kit and subsequent car made from the kit, is.
What of course he doesn’t tell you is that the cars in question are cars either I made or are cars he made as my agent (before he stole my designs and trade mark in 1991)Or that he had no hand whatsoever in their design.
This is a criminal offence, but of course the Police and the various governmental departments that should have done him for this are not interested and I have never been able to afford to take him to a High Court or even a County Court, myself. So he’s got away with it.
So I hit on the idea to try through the small claims court and duly got up all the papers. However our wonderful justice system then told me that it had to be heard at Croydon Court, when actually the law allows it to be heard in the Plaintiffs Court (Bournemouth) I simply wasn’t going to have that expense of traveling up to London for a two day case, so dropped it for that reason only. Plus I was fast approaching the final hearing in the Intellectual Property Offices court where I had spent my last pennies taking on a lawyer to hopefully and finally be able to get rid of this crook. Had that happened this case would have been a waste of time & effort.
However you may well know by now that throughout my battle for Justice in this rotten land of ours, this crook Busbridge has been able to lie and and lie through all the 7 hearings I have been forced to fight or defend. Every lie he told was believed by the IPO and every statement and piece of evidence I gave was not believed. Quite how he was able to do this is a mystery to me, even though I have my ideas as to how.So in the end I lost once more and to this day I am denied Justice over this miscarriage of Justice.
Now if you have been reading this blog from its inception or have gone back to post number one (which if you want to know all about this crook, you should do) or you have read my sister blogs (links on this blog to those, you will know the story and be able to see all the documentary evidence for they are all there for you to see )
So as this latest set of evidence has never been put on this blog or talked about, this is what I now will now show you. By that I mean what the lying bastard put into the evidence statement he made for this case. They make illuminating evidence once again, as to what liar he is.
I will go through this long winded document paragraph by paragraph showing you what a liar this turd is.
PARA 1. He starts his lies straight away by saying I am claiming he is showing ‘unauthorised’ copies of articles. When what I complained about was that he was showing photos of cars I made or he made from my kits. Thus giving the wrong impression about those particular cars.(If you look through previous posts you will see I have covered this before)In other words if you still do not GET IT, he misleads the Public into thinking that he is responsible for the inception and design of the Viper.
PARA 2. He states that as the website of his has been online since 2004 I have known about it. The facts are that from early 2004 I was in Australia or New Zealand or Spain. I returned to the UK mid 2008 and only saw his website in early 2009 and the claim was filed in mid 2009. Whilst abroad I did correspond with the IPO, which is easy to do even from abroad.
PARA 4. He then claims that after the end of 1989 and after Brightwheel Replicas Ltd was closed down by my partners, which is when I started my new company Classic Replicas, that he was never an agent for me then. Even though he admits that he continued to have a ‘business relationship’ with me. (he has to do this as I have copies of invoices and orders between us, going back to the beginning of 1990) Now I ask you, would I continue to do this on an ad-hoc basis, with me having no legal relationship or ability to control his using and selling my product???. Not on your life, and I made sure this time that he and his brother signed an agency agreement. His brother Martin at the 2010 hearing at the IPO verified through legal statements that they (Cobretti) did sign and were my agents and that he Robert Busbridge was lying. Once again the IPO refused to believe me or his Brother. I WONDER WHY???
PARA 5 he now resorts to telling the court that I forged this agreement (which his brother agreed at the 2010 hearing was not a forgery) Of course this is done to denigrate me even though I was charged as he states and FOUND NOT GUILTY !! HE GOES ON AND NOT FOR THE FIRST TIME TO TELL THE COURT THAT HE IS GOING TO HAVE ME, FOR THIS ALLEGED FORGERY…. THROUGH THE CIVIL COURTS…..I AM STILL WAITING….BRING IT ON ASSHOLE!!
PARA 6. He relates how the red car on his website, which I made for my Japanese order and allowed them to use for a photo shoot, so THEY COULD USE THOSE PHOTOS IN MEDIA articles and that would, as anyone with brains could see… would help their business. Now why would I do that if they were not my agents? Anyone with brains would ask. He complains that I never complained about the use of the photos of the Red Car,until 2009. This ignores the fact that when they were originally done I gave my authorisation as I’ve said and that finished the moment they cheated me by stealing my designs, business and trade mark in 1991/2
PARA 7 He now goes into a whinge that I am running a vendetta against him since 1991. I ADMIT THIS WHOLEHEARTEDLY AND YOU MAY WONDER WHY. I vowed way back that would continue til I die, to do this and I REITERATE THAT PROMISE. FOR THIS BASTARD RUINED MY LIFE AND SO I HAVE EVERY JUSTIFICATION TO DO THIS AND AS HE IS A SICKLY RUNT AND HIS BROTHER DIED AN EARLY DEATH…..IT IS MY FERVENT WISH TO WHICH I PRAY TO EVERY DAY…..THAT HE TOO DEPARTS THIS WORLD…..,ASAP. As I am a very fit 73 year old, I hope to outlive the lying bastard. so he’s got me on his back for some time yet!!
PARA 8. He claims in this PARA that he acquired the goodwill in the Trade Mark in 1989 from Brightwheel Replicas Ltd. He fooled the IPO on this, but the truth of it is, as I have shown over and over, that BRL NEVER EVER OWNED IT IN THE FIRST PLACE. BRL only started in business in early 1987, yet I designed the Viper chassis and made its body starting in 1985. The Granada version was finished in late 1985 and the Jag version which Busbridge copies in 1991 was finished in very early 1986. That process was paid for By my own monies and NOT THE MONIES OF MY THEN COMPANY …..BRIGHTWHEEL LTD!!!!!!!!!! I NEVER RELINQUISHED MY OWN OWNERSHIP OF THOSE ASSETS TO EITHER Brightwheel Ltd or to Brightwheel Replicas Ltd. I showed evidence of that to the IPO when fighting Chrysler and was believed and was given by the IPO registration of the Trade Mark Viper. Yet after Bastard Busbridge started his actions through the IPO, they then never believed a word I said or any evidence I showed. I WONDER WHY??????? Part of the reason could be that as the sheer volume of lies this crook made up in all the statement etc he made.Overwhelmed them and they just couldn’t be bothered to work out who was telling the truth. Who knows but it is a fact that even though the IPO gave me registration something made them change their minds, so much so that they eventually in 2010 took it off me thanks to the over 200 lies of Busbridge.(And 5 forged documents)
PARA 9. Here he admits that the car that features in his ‘Crash Test’ article WAS made from one of my kits ex BRL. Yet the way he writes it on his website, the fact it survived that crash was down to Liar Busbridge and nothing to do with my design etc . Yet he had nothing to do with the chassis design whereas I did!!!!!!!!Just like his misleading claim that ‘If it ain’t broke…don’t fix it!’ This is akin to saying “Well isn’t my design so good & strong…blah,blah”
PARA 10 Here he admits for once that other cars he shows on his website ARE cars made from kits I made at BRL so are NOT COBRETTI CARS AT ALL……SO WHY ARE THEY ON HIS WEBSITE?????
HE LIES YET AGAIN BY SAYING ALL THESE CARS WERE PUT INTO A PUBLICATION WITH MY KNOWLEDGE. WHAT PUBLICATION I ASK, AS HE OMITS TO SAY? AND any authorisation finished when he stitched me up in 1991/92.
PARA 11. This concerns the silver ‘Snake Charmer’ article which is again a car made from a Classic Replicas kit I provided them, for a Swiss customer I sent him. He lies by saying this kit was a BRL designed kit. I ask you this….who the fuck ran BRL anyway??…NO ONE BUT ME!!! and as I have said I designed that kit in 1985/6. He goes on to accuse me of stealing assets that belonged to BRL including these rights to the kit design. This is EXACTLY how he lies over and over making statements to suits his overall lies, just like this. Yet in court in 2000 when he tried to have me imprisoned and out of the way, he admitted under harsh cross examination by my barrister that he had no knowledge at all about what went on at BRL including who owned what. He knew absolutely Zilch! The FACTS are that all or most of the ‘material’ assets (but none of the IP assets) of BRL were owned by my American investor partners and that is why they took those material assets when it closed.I BOUGHT off them what I needed and the rest went elsewhere. He goes on to say I never showed any evidence that the Intellectual assets were legally transferred from BRL to me after it finished.
The FACT is as I’ve said, that BRL NEVER EVER owned those I/P assets, as I did. THAT IS WHY I WAS ABLE TO CONTINUE RUNNING A COBRA BUSINESS EVEN AFTER BRL CLOSED AS THE YANK PARTNERS NEVER EVER OWNED THE IP….I DID. FULL STOP, END OF STORY. WOULDN’T YOU THINK THAT THE YANKS WOULD HAVE STOPPED ME DOING THIS IF THEY OWNED THE I/P ASSETS TOO???? SO I NEVER HAD TO SHOW EVIDENCE OF WHAT I ALREADY OWNED!!!!!!
PARA 12. He now inexplicably admits that from 1989 to mid 1991 I did supply him with Viper Kits.(AFTER DENYING THIS TO ALL & SUNDRY) This is how liars forget the other lies they have told and then let things slip. For in the IPO court he denied me supplying him with ‘Viper’ kits.
PARA 13. He now goes on slagging me off and lying again by saying I was using Cobretti because I could not use the Viper mark and I did not want to face the public. Yet I helped them at a couple of KIT CAR SHOWS WHERE I MET MANY OF THE PUBLIC….OF COURSE!!!! So if I were scared to meet the Public why did I do this??? I also couldn’t deal with advertisers (whoever they were) as they were creditors of BRL. Two points here; first is that in a limited company, the directors are not responsible for paying creditors, as Busbridge well knows since he formed alimited company and then went deliberately bankrupt in 1993 leaving many creditors. This shows what a liar & a hypocrite he is. In any case BRL had only about 40 kit customer creditors who paid deposits (£500 each) and the Tax man as creditors and I had no legal requirement to pay any of them as my American partners had monetary control of BRL and it was they who closed it down not me, as I’d resigned as they refused to rescue the business.
He says ‘I WAS TRYING TO TRADE THROUGH THEM’ because I wanted to hide form the World. I WAS trading through them as my agent as I was running a ONE MAN BUSINESS AND BUSY MAKING AN ORDER OR TWO FULLY BUILT VIPERS. ( THE OTHER TWO I HAD ORDERS FOR, I GAVE THEM THAT ORDER AND THEY REPAID ME BY STEALING MY BUSINESS OFF ME AND ALL MY DESIGNS. AND HE WONDERS WHY I HATE HIS GUTS!!! I ALSO GAVE THEM THE ORDER I HAD FOR A CR6 LAMBO, I WAS HALFWAY THROUGH AS IT WAS TOO BIG FOR MY GARAGE. THEY COULDN’T FINISH IT AS IT WAS ‘TOO DIFFICULT’ FOR THEM!!!!!!!!!!!I WENT ON A FEW YEARS LATER TO FINISH IT MYSELF.SO MUCH FOR HOW GOOD BUSBRIDGE IS. FACT…..HE’S NEVER DESIGNED A THING HIMSELF IN THE PAST 30 YEARS, WHEREAS I HAVE A HISTORY OF 50PLUS YEARS OF DESIGNING A VARIETY OF PRODUCTS FROM ARTIFICIAL XMAS TREES, A HUGE VARIETY OF LEATHER GOODS TO POWER & SAIL BOATS AND TO CAR BODY KITS AND OTHER REPLICAS.AND I CAN PROVE IT STILL.
Para 14. Most of this document of his is irrelevant waffle and lies but the important bit is when he states ‘Ken Cook disappeared to Switzerland’ He is very fond of saying that as a way of slagging me off and denigrating me and I believe this and many other statements like this, he made to the IPO and thus swayed their opinion of me. THE FACT IS THAT IN 1991 THERE WAS A BAD FINANCIAL CRASH IN THE UK. Orders for kits and definitely full cars dried up, so my Swiss agent asked me to go to Switzerland to build a difficult order for a racing Viper. SO I WENT AND LEFT MY BUSINESS IN THEIR HANDS AND THEY REPAID MY KINDNESS AND FAITH IN THEM …..BY STEALING MY COMPANY ETC OFF ME AND TRYING TO SELL MY TRADE MARK TO CHRYSLER FOR £500K!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AND THIS SCRAWNY LITTLE TWAT WONDERS WHY I DESPISE HIM……HE’S LUCKY HE DOES NOT LIVE IN RUSSIA!!!OR ANY OTHER EASTERN EURO COUNTRY…GET IT??

The rest of the paragraphs to para 19 are the same repetitive lies and irrelevant rubbish so I will not repeat them all, as what I have said so far serves my purpose. Save the last para, where he asks the court to order the three blogs I write about him and Tanner, to be taken off the web. I ASK YOU IT’S LAUGHABLE. EVEN THOUGH HE HAS THE CROOKED BRAINS TO INDULGE IN CRIMINAL MATTERS AND GET AWAY WITH IT (LIKE HELPING CUSTOMERS OF HIS TO GET RID OF THEIR CARS SO THEY COULD DO THEIR INSURANCE COMPANIES AND THIS IN THE 90’S)…..HE IS REALLY A FIRST CLASS THICKO. FOR WHY DOES HE THINK I WRITE THESE BLOGS???????? BECAUSE HE AND OTHERS CANNOT TOUCH ME. I HAVE BEEN WRITING THESE SINCE 2007…..AND I AM STILL WAITING FOR HIM OR OTHERS, LIKE IAN HYNNE OR TANNER,(WHO NOW HAS ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD IN HIS CELL, TO WORK UP A CASE AGAINST ME, SEEING AS HE ALWAYS FANCIED HIMSELF AS A LAWYER….. BUT FAILED IN HIS DRUGS CASE, TO WIN THE CHARGES…..TO SUE ME.)
THE FACT IS THAT BUSBRIDGE KNOWS FULL WELL THAT HE HASN’T THE PROOF OF ME DOING ANYTHING ILLEGAL AND NOR HAS HE THE MONEY TO DO ANYTHING. PLUS IF HE HAD TO GET INTO A REAL COURT AND NOT THE MICKY MOUSE TRIBUNALS OF THE IPO, HE IS THE ONE WHO WOULD BE FOUND…….THE GUILTY ONE!!!!

HE SHOULD PRAY EVERY NIGHT THAT I NEVER WIN THE LOTTERY FOR IF I DO, HE WILL BE THE FIRST ONE I WOULD SPEND MY MONEY ON MAKING SURE I RUIN HIM. Just like he ruined his now dead brother by stealing his inheritance by brainwashing their Mother to cut him out of her will and to give LIAR BUSBRIDGE, ALL HER MONEY. No doubt what he did there helped Martin
s health to deteriorate and result in his early death. WHAT A COMPLETE SHIT, TWAT AND ASSHOLE HE IS.
QUITE WHY ANYONE WOULD EVER BELIEVE A WORD HE SAYS OR GIVE HIM MONEY FOR GOODS HE STOLE OFF OTHERS…..IS BEYOND ME.

Cobretti Engineering, Tanner gets just deserts.

Yesterday was a happy day for me for I heard that the arch shit & crook Tanner had been sent to prison for 3&1/2 years. To think that this shit helped Busbridge of Cobretti for all those years by lying on his behalf over his stealing all my I/P when he copied my Viper Cobra. Accused me of running off with peoples money in 1989 and disappearing abroad. Which was a total lie as I was here in the UK making the Viper and selling it through my agents of then….Cobretti. Only to have them steal the lot off me.
So now he rots in a jail, I hope, but then what are jails like these days?….holiday camps they say. I hope some massive big, butch bloke, rapes him or beats him up or both. For he deserves it and the only thing that really surprises me is that someone never paid for him to be beaten up years ago, as he upset so many people in the kit car world over the year he infested it.

Cobretti Engineering Still the lies flow

Thought I’d take a longer look at his current brochure and website. God he’s still at it even after 20 odd years of constant lying. He is still claiming on this website that cars I manufactured and built and that were featured in kit car magazine articles where they were claimed to be cars manufactured and made by him. Still showing the red car with model (woman) which I MADE FOR A JAP CUSTOMER. Then the silver car that was made from my kit bought for this purpose by Busbridge.
You would think that he’d made enough copies of my car over the past 20 plus years and got write ups done on them, to be able to peddle his own copies as examples of the copy. Apparently not.Maybe no one will do write-ups for him these days????
Then I see he is quoting an address of a nice house in the countryside south of London. No doubt he’s bought this bolt hole from all the money he’s made out of copying my cars and doing his very own brother out of his inheritance by lying to their Mother and getting her to cut Martin out of her considerable will. WHAT A LOVELY MAN IS OUR ROBERT THE SHIT BUSBRIDGE!!
Hope you do better out of him than others have who have been unfortunate enough to have come across him.

Cobretti Engineering and the lies continue.

Thought I would look at what the biggest liar in the UK is lying about today. So looked at his online brochure. The lies start right at the beginning of his lying blurb. He states the Cobretti Viper has been available for 20 years now. So that takes you back to 1993. Then he states that the Viper has been on the market for 23 years firstly through Brightwheel to 1989, then who sold it? That makes a gap of 4 years when according to him it must not have been for sale.
What of course he fails to tell you is that I designed the Jaguar based Viper and put it onto the market in Jan 1986. So by my non lying arithmetic that makes a total of 27 years ago the Viper first appeared, not 23. Also what he doesn’t want you to know is that when my business Brightwheel Replicas Ltd closed due to my wanting to get rid of my then American partners, I started up Classic Replicas in September 1989 and traded as such until the end of 2001. So my Viper was on the market from 1986 to 2001. AND THAT FROM SEPT 1989 TO END OF 1991 I SUPPLIED HIM AS MY AGENT WITH MY VIPER KITS.!!!!!
Also what he fails to disclose is that HE COPIED MY CHASSIS AND BODY SHAPE AND PUT IT ONTO THE MARKET AS THE COBRETTI VIPER AND THAT AT THE END OF 1991/BEGINNING 1992.!!!!!!!!!
Also the cheeky lying crook of a bastard, stole my trade mark Viper and so I then had to battle him through the IPO to stop him. To cap all that he says he owns the Trade Mark and implies he was able to do this because he had 16 years of ‘irritating legal battles’ >>>>>> obviously with Chrysler.
YET THE TRUTH IS THAT I BATTLED LEGALLY WITH WITH CHRYSLER AT MY EXPENSE FROM 1991 THRO’ TO 2002 WHEN I WAS AWARDED THE REGISTRATION OF THE TRADE MARK VIPER!!!!!!
Also what he fails to tell you is that in all the 8 Intellectual Property Office Tribunal Hearings held between 2002 and 2010 between me and him, he lied through his back teeth to those tribunals and presented forged documents(5)and the IPO believed him and not me, despite historical evidence that I legally owned the T/M from 1985 under Common Law and that they had given me the registration anyway. You need to wonder why this ever happened. Well read my blog; http://www.bewareincompetentcivilservants.blogspot.co.uk and you will see all the details of their unbelieveable behaviour and all the lies of liar Busbridge.(over 200 of them) And you can view all the documents of that battle on links to them. IT IS ALL A PRIME EXAMPLE OF HOW BRITISH JUSTICE DOES NOT WORK!!!!Had I been rich I could have easily won but I was forced to defend myself and that was my undoing.
Of course on his brochure blurb he praises the design and integrity of what is my design, as if he was responsible for all that, when the truth is that he couldn’t design a kids rabbit hutch, the useless twerp. (For your info I designed the Viper in Cortina/Sierra form and designed a Lamborghini Replica which was classed as the best in the UK. I also designed a Moke Replica. The Sheldonhurst Cobra was only a Granada based kit and I improved that design when I carried on manufacturing it (I do not claim I designed it) after Sheldonhurst went out of business AND I did that with their OK) and a kit to convert Mini saloon into a Mini Countryman. Both sold abroad to Japan.)
If you do not believe that he is not a designer in his own right, then ask yourself this question. Even by 1993 the Jaguar Ser 1,2 & 3 running gear as a donor vehicle was rapidly becoming too difficult to get and too expensive and today’s Series Jags are fetching too high an amount to make them a viable donor vehicle anymore. Things have moved on and if our wonder boy could design anything, why hasn’t he moved on to being able to supply his copy of MY VIPER in more modern versions with say Jag X300 running gear or BMW or Mercedes or likewise, more modern vehiclesas donor cars????????…. THE FACT IS HE IS TECHNICALLY INCAPABLE OF DOING SO AND HE WOULD HAVE TO PAY ENGINEERS TO DO THAT AND THAT WOULD COST HIM A BOMB.

THE MAN (?) IS AN ABSOLUTE PATHALOGICAL LIAR AND CHEAT AND DO YOU REALLY WANT TO DO BUSINESS WITH SUCH A PERSON????? FOR BUYING ANYTHING OFF HIM ONLY HELPS TO ENABLE A CRIMINAL TO ENGAGE IN CRIMINAL ACTS THAT I AM SURE YOU YOURSELF WOULD NOT ENGAGE IN.
HE COMMITTED OVER 200 ACTS OF PERJURY IN COURTS AND FORGED DOCUMENTS TO BACK HIS LIES, AND ALL ARE ALL CRIMINAL ACTS.
Read the rest of this blog and you will get the low down on his cheating in more detail or read my definitive blog listed above. Read my book ‘JUSTICE DENIED’ which is on that blog and you can trawl through all the seedy facts and evidence. (If you have the interest and stomach.)

Cobretti Engineering and Trolls

It never ceases to amaze me that in this country so many people in the youngster section of our population are so hateful and this shows in the huge amount of cyber bullying and hateful shit they write on comments sections that can be found anywhere online. Like on blogs such as this. I have already shown how many individuals in the Cobra Club fall under this category.
I attempted some years ago to help any individual who may have bought a genuine Viper kit or car (not a Cobretti copy) mostly to be able to identify whether it was one of my Vipers, a copy by Cobretti or others or just a cobra someone said was a Viper but was not. As soon as I appeared on their forums I was subjected to a torrent of abuse in this troll like mode. When I retaliated I was kicked out of the club. So much for freedom of speech and being able to defend ones self from trolls and people so full of hate. Not one of those indulging in this hate knew me personally or about my history with the car industry or about the history of my Viper. Yet all were experts on it all.
In the past week one of their illustrious members has attempted to slag me off on this blog through the comments section, with the usual diatribe of invective lies and hate filled comments. Including ‘what have you ever done for the club’ The answer to that is of course, I wasn’t allowed to!! He slagged off the Viper as a heap of shit that was unbuildable,which in turn slags off all hundreds of happy owners of my
Vipers, who bought kits and just got on and built them with no problems at all. It also slags off all the Cobra lovers who loved the wider stance of my kit and bought the kit because of that. It also shows an ignorance of real Cobra history because the only difference in the looks of the Viper and say other replicas in the UK are the wider wheel arches and if you study the history of all the racing Cobras, they ALL HAD THE SAME WIDER WHEEL ARCHES just as the Viper had. If you have ever been involved in racing ANY standard manufactured cars you will know the first thing you have to do is widen the arches, so as to get a wider track in order to give better road holding. Look at ALL the Cobra Replicas in countries like the USA, Australia, Germany and Austria they mostly go for the same wider arches that the Viper has. So his remarks are made out of ignorance, once more. He ignores the fact that the Viper has to be the most copied Cobra Replica kit going with FOUR people copying it in the UK and copies in the USA, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. If it is such a shit kit why do all these other businesses copy it??
Then he goes on to slag the kit off as unbuildable and that many are still battling to build them. Well this is just more lies as it is now 11 years since I sold the last one and surely all the kits I sold from 1985 to 2002 are fully built years ago? So I have to think that he is referring to the Viper copies made and sold by Cobretti or others!! I cannot be held responsible for for the quality of what he peddles. To build the rolling chassis is no more difficult than any other Cobra Replica sold in the UK. Fitting the body is more difficult in that it requires a bit more intelligence and mechanical/general expertise, but the resulting integrity of the finished car is so much stronger because of the extra strengthening that results in the fitment, in the way it has to be done. It also belies the fact that in 18 years of manufacturing that kit, I only ever received complaints from ONE person, namely a Cobra Club numpty who bought what was probably my last kit sold in 2001 and who I have outlined about in the below post and in others below. Plus it never ever got any bad reviews by ALL kit car magazine writers, INCLUDING LIAR HYNNE (who became a Busbridge LOVER probably on the orders of Tanner or by being bought off).
I then get a slagging for not being a successful businessman. Yet up to the point that Busbridge/Cobretti stole my designs etc and half my business turn over to boot, my business was selling more Cobras than anyone else!! He is ignorant of all the other areas of my business that was not involved in kitcars, such as the Mini Moke Replica I designed and sold overseas as a knockdown or fully built car. Or my work with a Mini Countryman replica car I manufactured and sold to Japan. Or the Mini body kits and convertible car conversions I did, very successfully. It is always the same with these Trolls. They are just ignorant oafs who have few brains, so take out their frustrations and insecurities with invective against others they hate for whatever reasons. That can be seen all the time these days and only this week we saw it against the couple who’s baby had a finger ripped off by a fox who were attacked in similar sickening ways by these sick troll people. Similarly the McCanns had to suffer from much invective from online Trolls. This Troll on this blog signed himself as ‘Eric’. Is he the same Eric who I complained about as being a self appointed ‘EXPERT’ on my business history AND the history of the Viper??
Anyhow all such oafs, fuckwits and defectives will immediately have their comments wiped off the blog, as this blog is to warn people who they may be considering buying a Viper copy off copier Busbridge and not to give a platform for sick people. Warning about the SUPREME LIAR BUSBRIDGE AND HIS LOVER IAN HYNNE IN HIS OTHER LOVERS MAGAZINE (DEN TANNER AND’KITCAR’)

Cobretti Engineering & more lies

Whilst searching the web to see where this blog comes, I saw that the Cobra Club are at it again with a website that features a post on the Viper history. These wankers of the Cobra Club do not like me as I have told a few of them what I think of them and their backing for Busbridge & Cobretti Engineering. They obviously have absolutely no standards as they see no wrong that he stole off me, what he sells now.
Also many (not all) of their members are no more than raving internet trolls. Many have slagged me and the Viper off when they never even bought anything off me but bought second hand part built Vipers. One individual a huge 6’+ odd slab of a Neantherdal who ordered a Viper V12 off me and was one of my last customers, was obviously lacking in mechanical skills as he found issues with most things. He obviously tried to fit the engine in with its Jag manifolds because he was too thick to realise they like many V8 & V12 engines the standard manufacturers manifolds are simply to bulky to fit into a small Cobra engine bay. He slagged me off endlessly because of this and the fact that he just would not listen to anything I said to him when he got back to me over all this. I rather quickly tired of his bombastic attitude and told him to go forth and multiply. Others picked up on his vitriol on his Cobra Club posts and all joined in to slag me off and when I retaliated I was banned. Wankers!!
Anyhow I digress, but one of those those trolls was a guy from High Wycombe who also joined in all this pathetic nonsense, by the name of Eric (can’t remember his second name but his posts are their somewhere. Now this chappy who was as old as me and was quite a physical wreck (I go back to the mid 90’s here) and is probably dead by now. He showed me that he thought he was the officially appointed historian of the Viper and of me and my business history AND an expert on the construction and technical specifications of the Vipe!! So on this looking at where this blog appears and seeing the Cobra Club right there, I went onto their site and low and behold I find a post by one ‘Rick’ ‘The Technical Director’ of the Cobra Club. Well firstly I wonder what qualifications he has to be that or is he just another self appointed nerd??
Now this post is a reproduction of an article by non other than this twerp ‘Eric’. I know it’s the same fellow because of what he says . Of course like so many other ‘experts’ on the Viper that abound in the kitcar world, he knows nowt and this article is full of shite he’s either made up or read in various liar articles on Cobretti by non other than the arch liar Hynne; ‘lover of Busbridge and Cobretti.
So here are the corrections to his lies in case you go and see this article and read it-
I had three companies Brightwheel Ltd 1985 to Jan 1987. Then Brightwheel Replicas Ltd, Jan 1987 to Sept 1989, then Classic Replicas Sept 1989 to March 2002. He states that the Viper was born out of the Sheldonhurst company. Not true as we were entirely different companies and although I was their agent for three months, when they went bankrupt I designed my own chassis and body. I did not buy their moulds and jigs.
Then he says that in 1989 that I was now manager of BRL. I was Managing Director and a share holder, but not the owner of the company as that was owned by the American investors and they had legal powers I did not have, to do what they wanted with the company.
Now to the big lie always bandied about by liar Busbridge and that was that on the Yanks closing down BRL, I disappeared in 1990 and took all the assets of BRL to Switzerland. FACT; ON BRL closing I started Classic Replicas here in the UK and SOME of the assets were sold to a Swiss company and I bought the balance, enough for me to carry on with Classic Replicas, so no need to make new jigs and moulds as he said.
There was NEVER any High Court action in the courts over copyrights either between me and Cobretti or Chrysler.
Then yet another huge lie about how Cobretti/Busbridge explained how he legally managed to get the Viper designs and trade mark. This goes by stating he was owed monies by BRL or me, and that gave him the rights to all that, but he actually stole them as BRL NEVER owed him a cent and why would it. It was a case of him paying us for kits and not the other way round….OBVIOUSLY!! This is what he has said time and again and it is a huge lie as any one with more than half a brain could easily see!!And he has never shown any legal evidence that this ever happened.
Now it is said that Busbridge had legal battles with Chrysler. As in my last post I have commented on this and NOW YOU CAN SEE THE DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE OF THOSE LIES AND WHAT REALLY HAPPENED.Look under the ‘LINKS’ at the right hand side of this page.
Mark Phillips was yet another stealer of other peoples IP property and during BRL he bought a Granada Viper kit off us and copied it. DMS owned by yet another crook, copied the Viper4 at the same time as BRL was closed. He sold DMS to Barrass and in 1992 I helped Barrass to run his business and let him under licence, build my Viper V8 Jag kits for sale. I also let him use my company name of Classic Replicas (and this was not 1994 as stated but early 1993). In 1995 I bought him out and continued on my own. I am still friends with Barrass and he has far from ‘disappeared’ In fact I talked to him only today.
Slagging off my Sierra model is another example of Eric’s lies as he never ever saw this kit let alone built one and not all that many were sold and I never ever received any complaints about it or any other Viper model EVER!!(until Mr Neantherdal) It was almost the same chassis as the very successful Viper4 but with steel floor. So saying everything was a bad fit is just more lies by someone as you will see was another Busbridge like liar and fantasist looking for praise from others. Funnily enough I built one in a few weeks and it was my demonstrator until I sold it and it received good reviews at the time.
Now our Ken Cook/Viper/Brightwheel/Classic Replicas expert goes on to state that I retired ‘around 1989/1990 which first of all is complete news to me as it was in 2002 I retired through a heart attack brought on by all the hassle I got because of Busbridge and his actions and lies.(I bet the really loved that when he heard)
It doesn’t fit in, in anycase with what he says about my actions elsewhere in his fanciful tales. He then has me moving to Spain which never ever happened, I have only been there on holidays and not in 1990, but in 2002/3 and then in 2005.
When I sold my company to Cadini it was sold with all the jigs and TWO sets of body moulds and some existing orders, plus all details of all my past customers so they could supply ongoing parts orders. Cadini were another set of people that had no REAL business or mechanical expertise, hence why they never even got it going and off the ground, despite my offer to help them in every way. That is why it died and has remained dead as Adrian Percival was yet another dreamer who quickly sold the business to its present owner who, whilst he has built some kits and cars has not enough money or time to run a full blown Cobra manufacturing business. I remain in contact with him and would help him in any way should he want it. He lives quite near to my engineer cousin who I visit regularly because of our mutual interest in all to do with cars and their design and all to do with classic cars which I am still involved in. So I see him from time to time or email him(the current owner)
Hope all this EDUCATES you with THE TRUE FACTS AND NOT FANCIFUL TALES MADE BY WANKERS!!
Once again I advise you to read my full blog on all the intimate details of the Viper history from day 1 AND my legal battles with the liar Busbridge on http://www.bewareincompetentcivilservants.blogspot.co.uk
NOW TO ERIC’S HISTORY WITH ME AND THE VIPER:-
He came to me some time in the mid 1990’s when I was helping Barras. He had bought a second hand Viper V8 and he did not like the standard to which it had been built. As he lived not far from my daughter in law in High Wycombe and I used to visit him and I gave him much technical help to rebuild it to his way and standards. I also saw him at various shows and I was friendly with him and told him quite a lot about the past history I had with the Viper and my problems with Cobretti. I thought he was a kind of friend.(shows you how you simply cannot trust anyone these days!!) I also sold him a number of parts. Then I lost track of him until some years later he comes onto the gossip columns of the Cobra Club, slagging me off and the quality of the Viper kit etc etc. WHAT A COMPLETE ASSHOLE!! He says he has experience of building a Viper kit. HE IS A LIAR JUST LIKE BUSBRIDGE. He has never built a complete Viper car, only pissed around with bits he changed on that car he bought.
All the remarks about the Viper kit being “The most controversial Cobra” and “most difficult to build” what utter crap. Why is it controversial??
Only because of the things Busbridge has done and said and the backing of that utter shithole who owns Kitcar rag. It is no more difficult to build than any other Cobra kit and I have built most of the other makes at some time or other. The rolling chassis is a doddle and it is only the fitting of the body that requires some expertise and common sense as the way I designed i, meant that it would end up being fitted in such a way that would take longer but would be actually part of the chassis being bonded to it in places, so much stronger than any other Cobra as it is bonded onto the chassis in many places. Now the fact is that I have had that kit made, NO PROBLEM, by hundreds of people from all walks of life. Not mechanics or engineer but dustmen, car mechanics, office workers and so on.Engineers have told me they thought it brilliant and had no problems whatsoever. I very rarely ever got rung by my customers for help and my build up manual was said by a kit car magazine (not Kitcar of course) to be the best going at that time (mid 90’s).
The truth is that many in the Cobra Club and so on, are as I’ve said…Wankers who have to join a club of sorts so they can gossip like washer women and get told by others how they should do things…because they have no expertise or CONFIDENCE to be able to work out anything themselves!! THEN THEY ARE ONLY TOO HAPPY TO JOIN IN WITH THE EXTREME WANKERS AND TROLLS AND INDULGING IN THE WAY TROLLS LIKE TO RUBBISH EVERYONE ETC ETC.

Cobretti Engineering still lying.

I see that these days this thieving man Busbridge doesn’t seem to be very active as he doesn’t seem to be attending shows and his advertising is spasmodic. Yet in this months Kitcar, that rag operated and owned by Busbridge’s mate in crime, he is advertising.
Yet his cheek still knows no bounds as he is still lying through his back teeth by still carrying the advert that states ‘If it aint broke don’t fix it’ This implies to the unwary that Busbridge has designed such a good Cobra Replica and 20 odd years ago that is so good it doesn’t even need to be updated. When of course if you have read ALL this blog, YOU WILL KNOW THAT THE VIPER WAS DESIGNED BY ME AND MY EMPLOYEES AND THAT WAS IN 1986 LONG BEFORE BUSBRIDGE GOT INVOLVED IN KITCARS, when he became my agent.
The truth is that if he were capable of designing anything he would long ago have designed an up to date Cobra replica using more modern donor cars. Of course he is so thick he couldn’t design a rabbit box. He will tho’, try to have you believe he also designed a Cortina based Viper, but that was my design again and then a Sierra kit which he got someone else to design.
WHAT A CROOK!! AND YOU THINK TO DO BUSINESS WITH THIS CREEP??
