Why is that required? Its his money, his car. Why should he bother. Maybe he cant maintian it even if he wants to.

I understand we are all passionate about cars but then its a personal thing too.

I assume this is the same car? I shot this at a 2007 rally.

Jayabusa the original owner used to look after the car. when he went bust, he sold the car to a dealer and that person did not take care of it as his intention was to sell the car.
I would suggest you know the facts before blameing owners who import cars and whose cars have not been well kept long after they have sold it on.
Ferrari does have a record of the cars sold (country and to whom) and an idea of what condition they are kept in. The condition record is maintained with the parts ordered for the car after giving them the VIN number.

@ Karl it is the same car. Has it been bought. She looks in a far better condition.

The car was lying with Choksi for quite some time. It was in good condition in his hands. As far as I know, his son planned to keep the car. The pics posted by Karl are when Choksi owned it. You can see its in far better condition compared to the first set of pics.

Ohh GOD!! This car is massively screwed up. I think i have a video of it starting up somewhere in my hard disk. It is in REALLY bad shape, Spluttering, smake and oil coming out from the exhaust. And yes, As karl said, it is the one in the 2007 rally.

Thank you V12. So this means Three hands down already. The car is in better condition than when it was with the previous person. I hope the car stays this way or in better shape.

Yeah it's the same car. Although I guess it looks way better in his pics because the quality of my 3650's camera (from 2004) is utter crap

I have never seen the Mondial at kundanmals. I think what you must have seen is something else.

Not kundanmals but the pump along with Jaslok opposite Dr House, where the Mercs and the Touareg are standing. Diesel said before jaslok not after Jaslok.

Could be that the Mondial is at the Jaslok pump Speedy. I have seen a silver Honda NSX at that pump under covers few years ago. I infact had the pump guy remove the covers to let me have a good look at it.

The NSX belonged to my friend Gagan and he used to park the car there as he did not have parking in his building. Now The cars standing at the pump are UPAJ cars and for sale. It could be standing there but like mentioned earlier by V12 that the car was now owned by Choksi's son. S i was wondering if the car is for sale and standing there, when did it go there. Two weeks ago it was not there.
