When Mr Black came to sell his rare and valuable vintage car that had a special heritage and famous pedigree, at auction and was hoping to raise several million pounds from the sale. He was surprised to find that there was another person, Mr White, claiming to have the very same vintage car. Both cars appeared to have the same engine numbers and chassis numbers and both appeared to be original.

Upon further investigation by specialist car insurers, it turns out that the original car had been in an accident and the parts were split and sold off. Two separate cars had been re-built and restored to their original condition and so both cars had parts of the original car, but neither car was wholly or fully original.

In the end, after some clever mediation, it was agreed that both Mr Black and Mr White pooled their two resources, allowing both the cars to be rebuilt so that there was then only one totally original car with the valuable heritage and famous pedigree, and another second car, equally beautiful, but without the heritage and pedigree. Both were sold off and they two owners split the monies amicably between them.
