Haritji, Indrojit,

This broker is complete time waster and a real con. He sends these huge zip files and claims the cars are for sale, but when asked where they are and can one see them he always gets vague. Haritji, Indrojit is right, I was surprised to see your Custom Royal in his fantasy collection of cars for sale. There were a few others, some of other Team-Bhp members also, which were included. Note, he always carries a pistol on his left, wears white shoes and most of the time, pretends that he is talking on the mobile

No price just the picture of the car. The car had thick dust and seemed as if not cleaned for weeks if not months and this gentleman was standing next to the car. IF you like i will send you the picture on your email. Please PM me your email address and i will send it to you.

A common practice done by him and many others.

Absolutely, no doubts that he is a time waster. He even send me a picture of one of my cars saying its for sale. When i told him that the car belongs to me and is not for sale, then he back tracked and said it was sent to me by some other dealer. Even the Fast back restored by Mr. KAdam was among them which i had pointed out in the thread.

Well talking of brokers and cars available, your mechanic was discussing trading of cars like plymouth, study 8 cylinder, morris minor, landmaster and stuff like that, with some one in the shop where I found the fuel pump, they had the pictures, all were looking pristine except the study.

Later when I asked he denied and on further confrontation he told of study with a multiplied by 2 price .

Well, this may the picture and the gent? Well, be careful, a fraud is at work.

There is a new scam making an appearance. A BMW Mini was offered in an ad at a ridiculously low price. My friend contacted the guy, he said that there are a lot of timewasters, if my friend was serious he should deposit some money. If deal does not go through, it would be refundable. He gave an account in Vashi. The guy had a deep African tone. Anyway, my friend was ready and willing, when he enquired where the car was. "In the customs, and it is LHD". My friend asked him how would that car be cleared and registered, he retorted that that was not his problem, now he should deposit the money if interested. Nothing further happened, and I am sure that the money would not have been refunded. Why? Because the price for the Mini was around 10 Lacs.

Cheers harit

Fellow looks like he's attempting to imitate a mafia don- rings on all fingers etc.!! I just cant stop

Its a real pity that such crooks are at work trying to 'sell' cars they come across parked in garages etc. Such people should be reported to the cops and this will atleast teach a lesson to others who follow their footsteps!

On similar lines as Harit, do refer to these threads:

Link 1 - (Potential SCAM on importing Mustangs to India?)

Link 2 - (SCAM: Brand New Toyota Car for 2.8 Lakhs)

I guess it would be good help to collectors if the name of this broker is revealed.

Any clues from our Mumbai members? The car is a regular at the local rallies.

That lovely car was with a friend and TBHP member for some years, till he sold it on to another member, till he sold it on to a Pune collection some months back. A beautifully presented car, I believe the original leather seats are intact under the present covers. It was immortalized in a Raymond's commercial where the sentimental teacher in a school was retiring and driving out of the campus.

Very true Karl! It was a daily driver's car till the late 1980's and even a better part of the early 1990's.
The aged man who owned it was very meticulous by nature and being an old timer had preserved the car till he passed away.
I had forgotten about the Raymond advertisement but thanks for reminding me about it again!
