Separated at Birth Part 3 - Art vs. Commerce

Unlike Part 1 and Part 2 of our "Separated at Birth" series which pointed out design similarities in various product mobiles, this particular case seemed to cause a bit of contention in the art car community.

When Marshall's unveiled their new Stiletto Car it seemed like the shoe definitely fit for the apparel outlet.

It didn't take people long, however, to notice the striking similarities between this stiletto car and David Crow's stiletto art car which has been making parade appearances for years.

It seems like they even got the color right. Well, suffice to say, many art car fans were not amused. I don't know any details of how far people took their displeasure but if next year Marshall's debuts a giant wiener on wheels they'll really have a fight on their hands.
