After a classic car show in Venture, this priceless consignment got wrecked in a train accident. Photos say it all.

Thats way too painful for words.

BikerSG, the rules for import of cars are set to relax from October 1. You can import a car from thereon, irrespective of age. Will look for more details on it.

i am not sure if the rule pertaining to cars older than 3 years will change!

if they do allow older cars to be imported, irrespective of price and homologation rules you can be sure of me getting myself a 356b roadster!
