Rodster Street Rod owners and friends,
this letter finds you well and enjoying your cool Rodster
would like to take this opportunity to make you aware, if
you weren’t already, of the patent that we received for our
unique design (see attached copy of U.S. Patent # D450, 284).
kit-car industry has suffered in the past from people doing
“splash” molds and then foisting “knock-off” parts on the
unsuspecting customer. Most people in today’s kit-car industry
are working hard to clean up this bad reputation, but unfortunately
the practice can rear its ugly head. So we are especially
proud and pleased to have the patent protection on our parts.
so you’re in the know, individual users/buyers of non-authorized
copies of a patented product are liable and can be personally
sued for damages. This is true for up to 6 years after purchase,
or for as long as they continue to use this non-licensed product.
thanks and congratulations for having purchased and built
a patented product. And, if you should ever see a "sloppy
copy" of a Rodster, we would very much appreciate it
if you would get some info (like a photo, license plate #,
owner name, etc.) and forward it to us. Also, should the situation
ever present itself, you might want to alert anyone considering
the purchase of a "rip-off Rodster" of the jeopardy
they may be facing.
is in your best interest to help us search out any "bogus
bodies," as their existence can diminish the value of
your very high-quality Rodster Street Rod. You could say that
"imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” but in
this case, “there ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby.”
in advance, for being on the lookout.
