A boutique mechanic in Iowa accused of faking the authenticity of a vintage sports car he sold and overcharging for service work on multiple rare vehicles has been ordered to pay $7.2 million to former Angie’s List CEO Bill Oesterle.
Oesterle, an entrepreneur and self-described avid classic car collector, took The Healey Werks Corp. and its owner, Craig Hillinger, to court in Iowa in 2020.
His lawsuit claims Hillinger pocketed hundreds of thousands of dollars through deceptive act after deceptive act during their 10-year-plus relationship.
