Guys,

Could we move on, No one's gaining anything from mud-slinging.

We are Automobile enthusiasts, and lets remain such in our own ways.

The world is small, we all may face each other some day some where.


Without further deviating..... I just came across a Herald/Gazel available in Bangalore.

Spitfire i think your split screen is being quoted at 10L because the guy does not want to sell it and being bugged by people - just so that you and I are on the same page he is a Goan in Mumbai with several beetles - I keep losing count as every week I vist my VW restorer friends workshop there is a new beetle in for work from this guy. This is what I got from him so if it is the same guy. Given his son a herby replica.

The gentleman in question does not own the blue and white GDA regd split screen van that Spitfire had posted that he owned earlier. (Am I right spitfire?). That van has gone to a large Delhi collection.

The gent in Bombay that you speak of has a green and white split screen that came from Rajasthan, and is not for sale. I call him Oscar Schindler - you figure out why!

this car was earlier discussed in some threads, if you keep aside the originality aspect, the car is a gem to have.

karl his car is black with white top and bhala on bandh did the resto job which I have been given to understand was not good! Not sure of its origins or paint scheme or the nickname. He quoted 10 L as he was being bugged to sell it by another bug like him. This guy is aggresively persistant to get other to sell . Now that I remeber yes this is not spitfire's car as this one was restored some years ago.

If spitfires car is gone to a collection they may be qouting 10 L just to get someone of their backs as well don't you reckon?

If so spitfire, ajay and I are vindicated in our earlier stand

The gent in Bombay does not have a black and white split screen, I am quite sure. He does have a couple of bay windows. One Baywindow was being restored at Bhalla, I have not seen it since he bought it.

I have no idea about how much who is quoting for whoever's van (or why), as I simply cannot afford one at this point, even for a pittance

Good for you

You want to bet your black VW on that?

--------------

Ok I got to the bottom of it the car was primered in black and top was before it was painted at bhalas therefore my confusion he still has the split screen in green and white it was painted twice.

Spitfire the same guy who karl is talking about bought a baywindow being restored at my friends place for 15k!! less than a year ago Although this guy is a "kida" so could get extreme price and the car needed ground up much like the one you provided the link to. One can be had far less than 3 lacs!!

Probably registered in compnay name, double tax, so tax bill can be huge. So, what is the price? There was one available in Delhi, rusty, partially dismantled and asking was 10L. That was tooooo much, but if the price is good go in for this. What say, V16?
I couldnt agree more. W108s are not many for the taking. I have paid for a W108 which i have not seen personally. I thought the price was a bit high but then Harit convinced me otherwise. I am a bit of a tight-wad you might say.

Price is always important. I have seen cars sell for much much less than quoted price, in some instances so less that when offered, i didnt want to make such a counter offer for fear of insulting the guy, i have learnt a lot since then. The procedure is simple, if you find the price is right, buy it. If you feel its been quoted to high, offer your price but be reasonable, you will get monkeys for peanuts (thats why Rudy has not been able to get his dukkar till now).

Of course, dealers in Delhi, i find is always quoting prices X 3 or higher than what its worth, sorry nothing against Delhi except maybe a few of those, who feel they have a licence to get more money but such people even exist here and everywhere.

Simple: If the price appeals to you, Go get it.

And what did you pay for your Chargers?

Couldnt agree more... there are still some available for a a price which was not considered reasonable a few years ago but is now. So (In Sachin Tendulkar's voice) "Go gate eet!"!!

@canonball: Karl's right. And a well known collector at that. I am surprised it is up for sale or maybe its a ploy to keep away buyers like you said.
