Re: WILD CHERRY lives ! - September 18th 2018 10:54 pm

Now it seems he took it off the property without permission .... lady that owns the prop & the van says "He stole it". May be a hero for doing it but ..... showin the restore on facebook doesnt make it legally his. The guy that opened the gate doesnt own the prop or the van.

Says he went thru all legal channels except asking the owner ....

Re: WILD CHERRY lives ! - September 19th 2018 12:58 am

He didn't ask the owner of the property? WTF? Sorry, that was a pretty boneheaded move. Never get a vehicle without the proper paperwork from the proper people. Sory it happened to him, but I can't believe he thought it was OK to just go take the van without speaking to the owner of the property.

This has been blowing up the internet all day My thought on the situation. There are two sides to every story and the truth usually lies somewhere in the middle.

Re: WILD CHERRY lives ! - September 19th 2018 4:05 am

The guy that took the picture of it sitting in the hills said "its abandoned" he wasnt the owner just some guy out walking his dog. Chris got permission from the next door neighbor.

" we talked our a** off to the landowners who let us on their property to get to the van that wasn't even on their property"

If it was her van she can do what ever with her prop on her prop, even let a van rust to the ground.

Well see what happens .....

Re: WILD CHERRY lives ! - September 19th 2018 4:53 am

Good grief. As a lawyer, I don't think he has much of a chance to keep that van. If he is lucky he will avoid jail time. He might have some argument about being reimbursed the value of the labor and materials he put into the van, but if he didn't talk to the owner of the property then it is pretty much straight up trespassing and theft. Dragging it across the country potentially makes it worse since now it is an interstate crime.

Re: WILD CHERRY lives ! - September 20th 2018 12:51 pm

I've been following this on Facebook the last couple days. What an absolute sh*t show!

As much as I can appreciate the work that went into it, if was not legally obtained (even if he thought he was doing it the right way), then he may be in trouble. There is just a lot that doesn't add up on both sides..

Pics and videos from their westbound cruise look neat and seems like it might have been fun, but I'm kind of glad to he watching from a distance.

You know if he had asked her she might have givin it up just for a ride when he was finished with the restore..... if she really Loved the van as she states. But she left it there as Lawn Art ...

I would have givin it up for that ...

I would like to hear the story of how it got to that point ... flat tire, drunk what happened ?
Posted By: NEmery

Re: WILD CHERRY lives ! - September 20th 2018 4:43 pm

As much as I respect the restoration job (which turned out awesome from what I can tell in pictures), it killed me when he set up his own GFM page almost immediately after 'saving' it. Had somebody else set it up for him it may have been different, but it was like he saw the sensation of the van's rescue and capitalized on it. I don't know him personally, but there are a bunch of rumors out there about him not having much of a Vanner attitude and overall kind of being an ass at the Nats. However, it's the internet, so who knows what is actually true....

I have been reading a lot of mixed stories about the whole scenario.... One story said the woman's husband was the prior owner of the van, not her, and that his son was the one that let the dude on the property? Also, it was said that the van was sold off for the drivetrain and then left for dead on the mountain (not sure why the van would be on the property of the owner that supposedly sold it, in that case)? then, i guess there was a live feed of him finding the title in the van, but then he says he never found it? I don't know, yall...too much to follow, I will just watch how it pans out.

My personal opinion is this, there are issues on both sides of this fiasco!

First off: He took the van without permission. That is theft... Years ago I had a car that had been wrecked. I loved that car (67 impala) and held onto it for a few years in hopes to fix it. If somebody had come on my property and taken it, I would have been devastated. Maybe he thought it was truly an abandoned vehicle and that he was in the right, but people called him on it from the very beginning and he deleted their comments... that makes me think he knew he was wrong.

Then: I do feel that its a little strange that the woman waited to take claim of ownership right as it was leaving to head to Cali... It was almost like she had been watching the events unfold and was waiting for the opportunity to strike. I feel like that may have been orchestrated. Maybe it was to try and hype up the event, maybe it was to get the van back now that it is repaired, who knows. It sounds (and looks) like her family probably holds some sentimental attachment to the van, as they lived in it and traveled and such. You never really know somebody's true intentions.


Either way, if he did not have permission from the van owner or property owner and just took it off private land that was owned by the van's last registered owner, that is theft. I am not a lawyer, so i have no idea about what the laws say...and even then, i know Cali laws are jacked up.... sucks to see that he could lose the van after putting the work into it, but it is a lesson to be learned from everybody that you have to try to go about things the legal way.

Re: WILD CHERRY lives ! - September 20th 2018 7:36 pm

I consider it theft if he took the van without the Owner's permission. It does not matter what adjacent landowners and old codgers said about it being abandoned. They were probably glad to see the eyesore removed from their desert view.

I have a piece of rural property that I rarely visit. There is stuff there that I am sure is considered junk to some people but it is still my junk. No one has a right to steal it just because it looks a certain way.

The situation is complicated further when the item taken is a vehicle that has a state issued title. How one gets around that without concocting a story is beyond me. Can Illinois revoke the title if statements made on the application are false? I dont know.

If I was the lady owner and knew that it was removed from my property, I would consult an attorney. It would be great if the attorney advised her to wait and let it get restored before calling out the calvary. There are lots of instances where cars were stolen and recovered years later after receiving restorations. They still get returned to the original owner and the restorer doesnt get squat. They are lucky they dont end up in jail for possession of or receiving stolen property.

I spoke to the guy at the Nats and yes he was a bit full of himself so it wouldnt bother me if he had to return the van to the lady owner.

from_ilm_tothe_lb@slownlow79 the door
philavon94It's just sad ...this story is just straight up sad. For both parties. They couple had the van way back and wanted to restore it, the guy sees the van falls in love gets it "legally" and spends a ton of money on it. It's just a shit show of a story that just will never end well... The couple won't get their van back and the guy will forever look like a gosh darn thief (which he is). In my opinion the couple deserves to get their van back since they are actually true original vanners.
philavon94@mikeyj666 the guy is a thief. He went through another property to get to the land where the van was. That's trespassing. That's literally the definition of trespassing. He didn't have permission to be on that land let alone take something from it, let alone the van the couple had back in the 80's. The couple are true vanners from back in the days. They deserve their van..
a100rescue@_vancult_ I heard the parts van had a clean vin ... 🤔

Re: WILD CHERRY lives ! - September 21st 2018 3:28 pm

Ok, I'll comment
Since I have a very limited supply of empathy I try to be careful with who and why I spend it.
Having looked at the three parties most involved with this sh*t storm I can say with confidence that I lack the depth of ignorance nor the blindness of arrogance to see this from either person or groups perspective. The restorer (what's his name), the johnny-come-lately owner of the van and least of all, the people who contributed parts or (heaven forbid) money to the GFM.
I can only offer advice: "Always make sure that there's water in the pool before you jump in."

Not wishing to waste empathy on the undeserving I have therefor decided to view this entire debacle as entertainment. A salve for the mundane.

The only other use for the mess I can offer would be as an example, so that no matter which side you identify with, the next time you do something stupid such as picking up a very hot object barehanded, twisting the head off of a left-handed bolt or driving away from the gas pump with the nozzle still in the tank, you can at least cheer yourself up sightly by saying to yourself, "I may be a complete dumb ass but at least I'm not THAT stupid."

Aren't people so very interesting? Psychology is absolutely fascinating.

I learned how to weld in HS. A girl taught me. She watched me for a while until she just couldn't stand it. i was a crappy welder then, and I am not much better now. Noticed Chris not wearing his PPE using a Makita grinder with a cutting wheel. Mad cutting/welding skills, but that's a no no.

However. Safety First People!

No matter how many times you keep repeating the same things over and over, it doesn't matter when the original owners came forward. Chris Carter took it from private property without their knowledge.

If someone steals your van, you can handle it however you'd like.

This is the link to the WC YouTube page.

There is impressive door video somewhere I do believe, but another impressive fabricator is new member Benstone from Germany. Ben's got skills, Check out his IG. No Fear!

So much skill. One million skilled Tradespersons needed in the Republic of Texas, alone. Who's going to teach all the new talent? These Metalmen are super talented. Which got me to thinking.

A skilled Tradesperson with 5+ years of Journeyman experience, a HS diploma, and a clean record, may apply for a teaching credential in the State of California. Fun to sit next to college grads also obtaining a teaching credential, while you are already teaching the Trades, plus making per year what they owe in student loans.

But you're done if you cannot pass that FBI background check.

A quotation of Lord Byron comes to mind:

Who knows thee well must quit thee with disgust, Degraded mass of animated dust!
Thy love is lust, thy friendship all a cheat, Thy smiles hypocrisy, thy word deceit!”

Quote from the news article "Carter asks the court to rule that he owns the van due to defendant's abandonment or other legal loss of title". Good gracious, if that was the case, people could be pulling onto people's property and hauling vehicles away cause they have set there for a certain amount of time. My family's farm and the two adjoining farm properties have approx. 30 vehicles that have been there since the 1950s. Anybody would drive back them farm lanes and start trying to haul stuff away, they would be looking down the barrel of a gun. Me and my brother bought some of these vehicles in the 1970s and 80s, drove them till they quit and parked them on the back of the farm in the woods, the titles are probably long lost to them, but they are still ours.

Re: WILD CHERRY lives ! - February 18th 2019 11:48 pm

Georgia law says:
(b) Any person who removes a motor vehicle from private property at the request of the property owner or stores such vehicle shall, if the owner of the vehicle or some person acting for the owner is not present, notify in writing a local law enforcement agency of the location of the vehicle, the manufacturer's vehicle identification number, license number, model, year, and make of the vehicle within three business days of the removal of such vehicle and shall seek from the local law enforcement agency or from the State of Georgia by direct electronic access as provided through its agencies and authorities the identity and address of all known owners of such vehicle and any information indicating that such vehicle is a stolen motor vehicle. The local law enforcement agency shall furnish such information to the person removing such vehicle within three business days after receipt of such request.
In less words, you fill out an MV-603 and pay $2 to find the last owner on record (if possible)
Then:
(f) Upon ascertaining the owners of such motor vehicle, the person removing or storing such vehicle shall, within five calendar days, by certified or registered mail or statutory overnight delivery, notify all known owners of the vehicle of the location of such vehicle and of the fact that such vehicle is deemed abandoned and shall be disposed of if not redeemed.

If the owner cannot be identified then you're required to run an ad in the paper for two weeks. After which you can apply for ownership.

Edit: BTW Applying for ownership involves a court order granting you title.

Re: WILD CHERRY lives ! - March 27th 2019 1:00 am

Well he caught another charge ...

"The new misdemeanor charge holds that Carter “did unlawfully attempt to prevent and dissuade Steven Godin Sr. and Laura Godin, a victim and witness of a crime, from causing a complaint, indictment, information, probation and parole violation to be sought and prosecuted and assisting in the prosecution thereof.”

Laura Godin declined comment on what Carter may have done to “dissuade” the couple."

Some sad comments on the article reveal a blatant lack of respect for lawful rights of Property, Ownership, and a woeful disregard for the basic Rule of Law.

Justice, is whatever the Man in the Black Robe believes...

Not designed to make you, the victim, whole again.

However. I'd like to see him made to restore the Van, during the day, Jail at night. Return it as he restored it, to the lawful owner. Sounds fair to me.

It would be interesting to hear that testimony. If memory serves, wasn't the person who gave CC access, and unlocked a gate to an adjoining property, a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy?

He got off light. Very light. I have had clients do much less and get a much worse sentence. Like the guy I represented on appeal who stole a $9 garden hose from a thrift store and ended up serving five years in prison.

If everyone involved in the case is happy, OK, but I still wouldn't trust Mr. Carter and don't respect him for what he did. Maybe he can rebuild the van and call it "Burnt Cherry" or "Mashed Cherry" or "Cherry Ripoff."

Posted By: NEmery

Re: WILD CHERRY lives ! - May 17th 2019 2:26 pm

I would be happy if this van just disappeared.

I never thought the van was 'Iconic' in ANY way-shape-form before this, aside from the sad picture of it on the mountain. To me, that picture was a sign of how far Vanning had fallen since the early 80's and the picture was more iconic than any part it ever had in a movie. Now the van and C carter have a very bad aura attached to them that will always be there, and it has caused such a rift in the Vanner community.

Please don't misunderstand- I enjoyed seeing the pictures of the van through the restoration process and after it was done. Regardless of the story (for the record, I consider it stolen/illegally obtained regardless of if the owners were going to fix it or not), it was nice to see that it was possible to recreate a van from the condition that it was in. I thought that in pictures it turned out awesome and with the people donating parts and such it was nice to see the vanning community help out.

However, I would have been happy to see the van given back to the rightful owners or at least see C Carter go to court without stripping the van. This cowardly and selfish action was a sign of guilt, in my eyes. If he felt innocent, he would have tried his luck in court without doing that to the van. If he lost in court, it would have been lesson learned. If a judge had seen in his favor, he would have a nice van.

Personally, this whole scenario was bad on so many levels:
-DON'T get a project that you didn't have permission to get!
-DO get signed paperwork from owners on project before you start!
-DON'T ASK for monetary donations on a project (GoFundMe)! If you don't have the funds, put it on the back burner until you do or sell it to somebody that can get it done!

How about he has confessed to stealing it before being forced by a court to pay the owners for it? He then exploited the van and the generosity of others to get free parts and labor for the van. Finally, in an act of childish spite, he claimed he didn't know where it was and anandoned it after stripping it to a shell and ruining the paint. Is that really the kind of person that anyone wants to be associated with vanning and the nationals? If I had any say he would be barred for life.

He's out his atty fees, but that was money well spent. 23 days served. Ex Wife, More Atty fees. His choice.

So. Question? Where's the deterrent to criminality? Looks more like a speed bump in the original plan.

I'm unsure what a proper solution to this stain on Vanning will eventually be. But it will be interesting to see if it is decided Honorably, for the "Good of the Body, (Of Vanning,) as a Whole." Or not.

Well, I do criminal law in Washington State, so the legality of excluding someone from the Nationals or a club is a bit outside of my wheelshouse. The answer would really depend on the anti-discrimination laws of the jurisdiction of the venue for the Nationals and the club. This gets into a tangled area involving the First Amendment rights of the organization, the anti-discrimination laws of the jurisdiction, and very likely other areas of laws I can't think of and/or am not aware of. If the event is open to the public, then it would be VERY difficult to keep one particular person out. If it was a private club or event that was invitation only, it would be easier to keep him out, but not necessarily lawful.

This case gives you a good introduction to the law in this area: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boy_Scouts_of_America_v._Dale

Shunning and public shaming might keep him away. I would like to think that he would have the decency to pack up his sideshow and just go away, but he seems like the kind of person who is shameless enough to put the van back together and take it to the Nats and shows on some kind of a victory lap.

This whole situation sucks. At first I was behind the "Wild Cherry" rescue project all the way. Then the more I learned the less I liked it. Now I am convinced he is an opportunistic scammer.

Chris Carter has begun selling his Wild Cherry stuff again. I never bought into his sales pitch then and I am not now. I will vote with my wallet, case closed.

So, who was right and Who was wrong? Chris Carter or Laura Godin?

The courts decided and Chris Carter plead guilty to one of the felony counts of driving or taking a vehicle without consent and had pay US$5,000 restitution to the Godins, as well as nearly US$1,000 to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for towing and impound fees. So, I can't see how anybody can defend Chris and his actions to take the van the way he did.

But, in the end who really won? Of course it was Chris, he got what he wanted even if it didn't belong to him.

The lesson to be learned here is... if your lucky enough to own a garage keep your project vehicles inside. If, you can't. Cover it up with a tarp and keep it out of sight from the eye in the sky (Google Earth/ Maps) and the envious eyes of people on the ground.

Of course, this not the end of the story of Wild Cherry and Chris Carter's 15 minutes of fame. Though, I am sure many wish Wild Cherry would just go away. No need to worry, Karma takes care of everything.

Well, that's my two-cents on the matter.

Besides this Carter dude being a vindictive bitch he destroyed a nice van, a bigger man would have turned it in unblemished ..just my opinion

Most likely just a cheap rattle can of flat black over the vans urethane clear coat which is easy to wash off with the correct solvent. Chris would know this having worked in a body shop.
I think Plasti Dip would be pricier then a generic flat black rattle can but I am just guessing.

Yes, your correct but don't think we have heard the last of Chris Carter. When ever you have people who think their entitled or above the law their soon in the news again wanting that 15 minutes of fame again. Sad, but true.
