I just wish the vette' is a RHD so that it will easily get some takers in an event of auction. Really a sad sight.

Rest of the pics i have posted in SBK thread.
That duo belonged to the same guy(Shabeer) who brought the Yellow H3 under Carnet and the owner of the Q7 i posted in the previous page. He sold the Boulevard and retains the 954, which proves to be his favourite.(as told by a bhpian mutual friend).

Great find there JayD. The corvette looks to be converted to RHD and thats why the engine trouble. Is it going to be auctioned or someone has claimed it.
It is a 2005 Z06 and one fine car to own.

Someone had mentioned it on the forum Ecks. I think it must be more of electrical failure that does happen if a conversion is not done right.

Shamik have spoken to a friend in the area and hopefully we shall know more from the customs. Definately worth having in the garage.
