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).

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

And what did you pay for your Chargers?
Hey, be careful on what you post. A tight-wad with so many Mercedes and a Rolls to top it off. And always hospitable when we visit your office!

But this thing about the price does not only apply to classic cars. In the past your family has purchased a number of cars from the dealers, and you know how they dealt. First the car was offered to a filmy guy at higher prices, then others would get a chance. And often you found that the car was sold to someone else at a rate much lower than what was offered to you. So really, nothing new, sensible or not.

You are the first collector who is keeping real and sensible by your statements above lets hope everyone can keep it in control
Did you ever ask me what I paid for my Charger? The aquisition of my Chargers is a nice story which I repeatedly have told many, V16 included.
Part 1 One chor bazar, Part 2 Filmy stunt cars supplier, etc. Only I feel that I need not post the answer on line, many are not concerned. A straight answer: we meet up, I will tell you! Fair?

Cheers harit

Wow, Gogiji that is great news! Congratulations. I suppose it is the same one we were discussing earlier?

Nope, one Bus came from Pune the other from Bombay.

And speaking of the holy grail, when do you show me the pictures?

Very true abhishek. It belongs to my late friend and has been lying like that, so they thought it better to sell it off to prevent more decay.As regards price if you are genuinely interested please pm me so I can tell you about the contact person.
