In the lawsuit, Bibby claims 212 Motoring told him they would pimp out his 1973 Chevy Caprice for free. Why free? Because the auto shop was trying to score a reality show tricking out old school cars -- and Bibby's was the perfect vehicle to feature on the program. 212 Motoring, which is co-owned by former NBA player Jerome Williams, claims Bibby knew the deal -- nothing's free, even noting two different estimates in the lawsuit, and with a total bill $78,000. BTW -- Bibby is making about $13.5 million this season and will earn $14 million in 2008-09.
Herman Frank, the lawyer representing 212 co-owner Harry Shasho, says, "I am disappointed that a super successful role model like Mr. Bibby would be attempting to obtain automotive service for free, and insisting that it was provided on a free basis, when in fact it was not."
