I thank God that these chor bazars do not have a facility wherein they procure the parts from their sources based on customer orders.

They did had, or may be still have.

Here's a genuine case: about 40+ years back, my father was based at mumbai and one of his friend who was a known film maker needed a cheaper spare wheel for his Fiat, after looking a lot at chor bazaar none of the available was having good tyre on it, they were asked to wait for 20-30 mins, and in 20 mins the assistant to shop-wala came with a acceptable spare wheel, they paid and went away, and to their shock their own car parked outside was having BRICKS under the rear wheel.
they rushed back and after a lot of talks they got the money+tyre back which was their own.
I think after this incident this was also shown in some view too.

OMG - This is shocking.

This incident sounds like a scene from a David Dhavan movie.

Moral of the story - never take your car to the chor bazar. Use public transport.
