Are you sure ? Hani told that the SL was auctioned and later regd in CG/CH. And was there with the dealer when he went to buy his 'G'. I too faintly remember seeing those pics when he posted the first pics of his G.

Even i remember reading Hani's post. Will check with my friend about the same. Will ask whether i can post those pics,that might clear out the confusions

What the fridge!? So if that is a C6 Vette, which is not on carnet,then how is it there? I mean, LHD cars are a strict no-no (read : banned) in the country, unless one is a automotive manufacturer, right? So is that the reason it is kept under Customs Dept?

Here's the Boxter S which is seen in Technopark, Trivandrum today evening. Dude was literally lugging the engine and driving Seen parked outside one of the buildings after a while.

It had a CG registration. Interiors looked bit old and used.
