karl the guy has also mentioned that it need some work and would charge less if you take it as it is. these are just speculations that we are makeing the actual damage would be known only when we phisically see it

Snapped this pic as Mickey and President tried to stare down each other!

Uh, speedy I took it you were asking about the Morris Oxford (as you'd quoted my post with the pics. of that car), it was at the scrapyard here in HYd. I've no idea about the golf or chor bazaar.

PS- congrats on your new buy Mr. scooby! She doesnt look that bad (atleast not in the pics.!), although this is a surprice from you, going for a car without a/c, power steering etc.!

I'm in Mumbai only on the weekends and can certainly shoot some pics for you, unless the car has been already towed away elsewhere.

Wonder if V-16 knows more about the Blue diesel Golf?
