I think you joined in late.

We have a whole thread dedicated to this.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintag...valuation.html (Vintage & Classic car valuation)

It would be good to have insights from a person who deals with this everyday. I tried to understand and make a start but the overwhelming reasoning pointing to - "you wont get it" made me move on.

We do-not have a list as of now. We have announced the event and we expect to have about 20 cars and about 25 two wheelers. As soon as we have a final list, which will be closer to the event, I shall give the details.

Not trying to give wisdom, just spelling out the facts as i understand. Also not looking to sell my SL until circumstances mentioned above come into existence.
I had a hard time trying to get a good one in the first place.

Jatti Saab, the last auto jumble was also held last year around the same time. I had the good opportunity of meeting up with you and seeing some good cars on display. Also a lot of auto memorabilia were available for collectors. All the best with this years function.

What circumstances V16 I did not get you? You mean convince you to sell it?

By the way what I expressed was also facts as I understood them and my experince. eg. I have had just the oppsosite expeirence to yours regarding an SL (larger engine than yours) and mind you she is tiptop (read show room without rust/paint bubbles etc) not flood damaged etc.

These have been last seen working in 2001 since it was last used. They are in repairable condition- need to be done up.

I think even the dealer community is getting pretty crowded and there is want for logical & objective professional guys like you, I mostly meet dealers who are either in denail that they are dealers - A Very Dangerous Lot some even maskerading as collectors on tbhp, then those who think everyone is a sucker and they know it all, and some old foggies who are stuck in 1974 raj a sad lot.

I called a reputed import dealer in khar/bandra to sell a car he quoted half of what he qouted some else looking to buy the same car for sale with a veiw of 100% margin on a 8+ year old car. I think again your 50K example smells like an investors/dealer or vinatge car speculator offer prices.
true , talking for myself i have been through the phase of being duped by most of these dealers giving them advances and not getting them back , being tricked into buying cars with bad engine which work fine till the oil dies out , with cars tht run great for a km till they heat up etc etc etc - now i am way more skeptical about trusting any1 when it comes to buying vehicles till i have a good 1 or 2 hrs trial on these - and i always welcome any1 to call me or msg me would be glad to help or even personally if u want to show me ur vehical or if u need any advice , i might not be the best but some helps better then none

Spitfire & landspeed we are country known for its blind faith amongst people so what better can one expect here when you have well educated people and some well educated stalwart collectors talking like their left hand does not know who their right hand is - I see mostly double standards as the hand that speaks here is quite the opposite of the way the other hand acts and behaves and does things offline. Anyway happy to see someone else with objectivity I must commend Mr. Jatti as he always refrains from subjective commenting an important trait for being known as a stalwart in my book I am sure he is a very balanced person and does not trying to hype things beyound what the really deserve.

Another vetran we all know but has not bothered to log on to tbhp tells me that all this talk is really a deep seated insercurity amongst some collectors as one side of them (the offline side) regret carrying along/holding certian junks in their collection which their wifes will always agree are that and want the whole world to believe that these cars are the lost treasure of egypt - (when I last visited this existed amongst excavators & guides there as well and anything else available out there is valuable enough to divorce your wife and empty the bank. OFCOURSE there are those who aren genuine car guys and talk reality.

The same guy also told me that too many used car dealers have gone on such a hording spree that half the cars out there as Landspeed mentioned are junks and nothing more. Do you know that a certain dealer with a horde of unsold cars has now moved them outstation to Mahableshwar - obviously the story given to you and me is these are crown jewels which will be worth millions of dollars in decades when really they just don't know what is going to really happen but in today's date are stuck with BAD inventory!!!
