Agreed the VW is overpriced. If it was totally original, might be worth a look
Well prices for the cars is totally subjective, there is no MRP for them or any yardstick by which we can price them. What might be overpriced for one might not be for other. And many times the cars go for much lesser than what we offer, it's all part of Life.

I think 5 - 6 lacs would be a very good price for the owner. It may be rare but it does not appeal to everyone, especially vintage/classic car collectors.

Default Advice on buying an Isuzu Gemini '83

Fellow BHPians,
This is call for advice on buying this Isuzu Gemini that is available (Team-BHP Classifieds - 1983 Isuzu Gemini 1817cc Diesel **Price Slashed !!!** - Powered by PhotoPost Classifieds).

The car seems to be in very good condition. I am a little concerned about maintenance though. As I live in Bangalore, will engine parts, filters, suspensions components, etc be easily available. If anyone does know where, then do let me know. Also this will be my first car so please advice keeping that in mind. Overall from what i know, the Geminis were reliable cars esp. the 1.8L diesel engine (this car has the same).
This car does not have an A/C, will it be too cumbersome a job to get one fitted?
Thanks in advance for your inputs.

Well according to me parts would be difficult to find and this car has done a lot of milage and is prone to giving trouble.Since it is your first car it is advicable to go for something you can really drive around and will not be expensive for you yto repair incase of any damages.As far as fitting an A/c it is not difficult but you muight have to get a new radiator and some other stuff for it.Another thing is that it might be difficult for you because the karnataka cops are damn strict about out station cars and since it is not a Euro 2 compliant they will not transfer it.So these are a few things you need to figure out before you go for this car.

If its your first car and your budget is in the region of 60K, why dont you get somthing that will be easier to look after? Like an older 800 or esteem? It will be easier to get parts and alot easier to repair if something goes wrong. Ask yourself if this is a practical buy?

Seniors have given a sound advice. But if you r looking for something different or classic sort of, then Fiat Selects (1959 -64) are available, one car in recent classic category will be the SS80 and SS80 DX (the original suzuki 800).

Even with fiats you would face the problem of finding parts for the car and the car would spend more time in the workshop than with you and would cost you as lot!

NOTE: 'was unable to edit my previous post by including this because of my PC acting up!

Anyways, to continue from my last post, I got to speak to the seller finally- he said the car was sold the very day it was advertised!! He unfortunately isn't able to get the ad off that site!

Better luck next time (again!).........:sigh:

Guys do these fiats and marutis really deserve to be on this thread? They are not classics by any standard and simply clog up the thread. Why not have a separate section for them. This is a humble request to the mods as I am tired of going through these countless fiat/maruti posts.
