Nothing major, but a few minor developments behind the scenes. First of all, Helen Gibb is still seeking all rights to the Fred Gibb trademark, and the sYc is still supporting her.

Valerie Harrell has assigned one of two applications to Connie Gibb, one of Helenís daughters. Though on the surface it may appear to be a gesture of good will, really more a case of someone getting caught with their hand in the cookie jar and trying to save face. And really serves only to complicate things, as now pitting mother against daughter.

As of today, Valerie has not assigned the other application, it still remains in her name, which asks for the rights to 1. TOY MODEL AUTOMOBILES AND TOY REPLICAS OF RACING VEHICLES and 2. ORGANIZING AND CONDUCTING AUTOMOBILE EXHIBITIONS AND DISPLAYS. The logic behind this is not hard to figure out, #1 is one of the few places a little $$$ can be made off of a supercar related trademark, and #2. to prevent the sYc from doing Gibb displays at the SCR, York and Vettefest shows, and who knows, maybe even prevent the town of LaHarpe from holding the Annual Fred Gibb Memorial car show, at least without paying a fee. Remember, Valerie prevented the Dick Harrell Performance Center in Las Cruces, NM from hosting an Open House/car show, which was to feature several Dick Harrell cars, because the majority of cars scheduled to participate were owned by members of the sYc.


And, it has come to our attention that someone from another site says he made a 10K donation to the Val Harrell fund. The only use we see Val having for that money is to aid her in her attempt to trademark the Fred Gibb name. Once again we would like to state that we think the Fred Gibb name should remain with Helen Gibb and nobody else. Why would anyone support Val trademarking the Fred Gibb name ?

Tom someone sent me that in an e-mail. What a joke...sounds like the usual lies that we have become accustomed to by these guys. Somehow the charitable type doesn't come to mind.

For once the good guys won, as Helen Gibb and the sYc prevailed.

Once the facts were known, and I am guessing Valerie and Dale realized that it was a case they could not win, either in the court system and in public opinion, the applications were dropped.

Helen Gibb now holds the rights to the Gibb mark, as registered in the good State of Illinois.

OK, that last part may be a bit of a stretch.
