Are you sure the car PBL 2 is a '62 Biscayne?? It looks from a much later date. '62 Biscayne would look like this:

Well you have seen the car( The vw baywindow) and looks like you are keen on getting one as well. The amount you offered for pavans car ,you probably would have offered this guy a decent sum as well. Can you tell me how much you offered cuz in my opinion in its present state the value of the bus should be around 50k. and if you offered him more ,there is no chance he'll give it to me, so i wont even bother trying. If you dont want to disclose what you offered on a public forum please pm me and tell me whatever you can about the bus. Probably the tree falling on it and breaking its windscreens incident happened after you saw it (i remember seeing it with its windscreens all intact but very badly rusted)do take that into account and guide me what the right price should be for this car.

1970 Mercedes Benz


This car was up for grabs around 10 months back. Don't have anymore details if it went or is still there.

Dear Mr. Sircar,


I have this 1970 model Mercedes W115. Currently fitted with a 200D W123
diesel engine but the original engine is available. Complete with each and every part except the front monogram. 6 cylinder petrol engine with double carburettors. Column shift. Right hand drive. Still starts and runs. Needs to be cleaned. Papers clear. Very very very rare model. You can find W115 petrol but not 6 cylinders with dual carburettors. All the parts which you dont see in the picture are available like side view mirror (German), wipers (German), new head and tail light lamps (German). All original. Car still runs perfect. both diesel and petrol engine. 6 cylinder petrol dual carb engine and W123 diesel engine.. this is a W114 not W115. Incase you are interested kindly let me know.

Have given a copy of the mail above. The pics of the petrol engine are also here. So merc gurus what is the take on the W114 ?

Hi mycarhasablower,

Yes i have seen the car and am keen on getting one but not this one. I did make Pavan a good offer but then he isn't interested. I didn't make the owner of this car any offer although i was asked many times. I have seen it 3-4 times before and after. I have the pics of the van and the Jetta after the incident. What was the status of the documents told to you ? It depends on what you think is the correct price and make an offer accordingly. I evaluate it differently you evaluate it differently.I could still help you if you like. Drop me a PM.

Here are the the pics of both cars-

I remember having seen the same pics. in the seller's orkut album more than a year ago, but prices werent mentioned there.
The hillman is nearly complete and restorable, but neither of the cars are worth the prices they are being quoted for!

This came to me by email through someone else not the seller on orkut. These cars just about start i believe but nothing further. The Hillman is quite original but then has a broken bumper and broken grill.

Does anybody remember this Holden Monaro GTS that once belonged to bollywood actor premnath. Karlosdeville spotted this in pune.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/1392425-post155.html

Well this is the current avatar of the car. The current owner tried to modify it to a corvette. Now the car is now neither here nor there. Instead of salvaging, the owner has completely ruined the car. Irreparable damage has been done by chopping beams & pillars.

Guess this car belongs to this thread now

my heart just broke into a million pieces

i have been looking to buy a coupe (like this one here originally was) since a while now and seeing someone screw around with one in perfectly good shape is too hard to fathom

Dalviji,

This is an example of looks being deceptive. The car was already sc....d when that old picture was taken. She was lying for about 5 years or so on Altamount Road on the open road, thoroughly rotted. She was offered for sale, I think a number of t-bhpians saw and left the car. Ofcourse she was neglected, and spoilt, apparently maintained by roadside mechanics. The shape was original, but the condition was horrible.
About the new design,

Cheers harit

I think Premnath should have lent it to his movie buddies to blow up rather than let it reach this state - that was mean but I couldn't resist. Apologies to the owner if he's reading this.
