all those enchanting Bentleys , BMWs , Mercedes, Passat etc are being re-auctioned on 11-11-2014 by DRI Mumbai through MSTCEcommerce . wonder why the earlier auction was inconclusive. : (

and without any further iota of doubt for the future. Many other desirable cars in the market have questionable documents and created by agents by forgery.

Believe in yourself and do not under estimate your luck. Avoid all dalals and agents here. They manipulate and play dirty by habit with ulterior motives. The DRI/Customs/MSTC department officials are straight forward when completing a transaction.

Everything is not rosy though. Often, the registration of the car could be fake. You have to take some trouble and ask the RTO before hand about this and know the truth for yourself. If so, the re-registration afresh takes time for completion of all formalities. the RTO LTT is charged on a certain percentage (post depreciation) based on the Original Invoice Value of the exotic car when new. this could be a colossal liability running even upto Rs 50 lacs. technically, there is a possibility of expensive electronic parts being missing or damaged. In storage, flooding of cabin may occur in a few cases.

Bentleys are a dream machine. they may get sold for a song. so make your dreams come true sometimes!!

good luck Sahil!

Thanks Kamath sir. I just wanted to know as i have heard that the cars and bikes sold by such auction are sold at a very cheap price. Please let me know if it is true.

Also, I would like to know that in registration at mstrecommerce it is asking for sales tax registration. I don't have one what to do in that case as I'm a tax consultant. Please advise.

I spotted this unusual (for me) car at a nearby FNG. The mechanic there told me that this car had many offers but owner just refused to sell it off and let it rot. He wasn't aware of the model and I knew only Toyota 86 and Celica as being two door cars from Toyota. Mr. Google proved me wrong and told me that it is a Toyota Paseo / Cynos.

Spotted two American cars rotting on the side of the road.

The blue one is a Buick LeSabre from the 1970s, floor pan has rotted through.

The Chevy Impala is RHD, and looks like an import from Australia/New Zealand. Someone had tried "restoring" it, and it looks quite ghastly close up.

Where did you see the Impala ?

This Impala was rebuild in the lane adjacent to my apartment in BTM, on Lake Road. There is a car garage where I had seen this for about a month and then was moved away, after a full restoration (ignore those big lettering). Interesting to see that it has been stripped down again !!

These cars are sitting in 38th Cross, 8th Block, Jayanagar.

But please, don't insult the word "restoration" by using it in the context of this Impala. See it up close, and you will know what I am talking about. The quality of the materials, the workmanship, all sucks big time. Too much jugaad. And it bears no relationship with the original ex-showroom condition. The windows don't exist. There is carbon fibre wrap used to cover up paint issues. The gear lever is a steel rod which looks like it was painted by my 3-year-old son. Etc etc etc.

EDIT: The Buick is a 1979 LeSabre. It probably looked like this http://images.classiccars.com/classi...ck_LeSabre.jpg when new.

ROTFL

I never observed the car so closely althought it was bang next to me. I thought I would have a close up once it was restored, but seems everything has gone wrong !!!

Its an auction wherein you will have to bid. If you go through the older posts you can get the process for registration and bidding as well.

Friends the biggest problem in registration for auction is that they ask for sales tax VAT tin no for the same.

can any one please tell me whether it is worth buying a car or bike in auction?
