Another pic. of a "similar" (although if its really a '68 model it cant be a super-select, has to be a delight only) model taken abroad!

This is the 2nd time Ive seen someone on an Indian site do that for their ad, the last one being a standard companion also in B'lore!

'wonder why these people selling their cars put up pics. of other cars from abroad? Are they worried bout people saving the images of their cars and using them in an unauthoried way? But then they too are doing the same with these images!

Its not snobbery, its different interests and they don't mix well.

For this reason I had suggested to Julian creating specific threads for different categories of cars, Brass Era, Pre War, Post war etc. If we can agree on classifications then the quality of threads would be not be compromised.

My personal opinion is that its okay to have a thread discussing Fiats and Ambassadors and Standard cars, after all they represent motoring for the millions and are more significant in their impact on people's lives.

All we need to do is enhance the classifications and create quality in these threads

I empathise with how you feel but people are deeply passionate about Fiats and VW's and Ambassadors. I think that's wonderful and if not here where would these discussions rest? Considering the rest of TBHP is for current automobiles.

Initially foreseeing this problem I wanted to create dedicated threads but some members objected to too many threads. Which is why everything is getting clubbed into one thread which loses its identity. I don't think we need to be so stingy with threads. Have dedicated threads, like Classic Fiats, Classic Ambassadors etc and let people carry on with whatever interests them. That way everyone has a place to talk about what he/she likes and since this forum is for all and not the domain of a few we keep everyone happy and enjoy ourselves at the same time

Just a suggestion guys, hope its viewed in the right spirit. Awini and Julian I fully understand your concern and feel it can be addressed this way

Very well put DKG. All classes of vehicles of yore are precious; a few more specific threads (or maybe clubbing together a few of the 'ordinary' marques in one thread) would liberate the readers to their own selection. Although I suspect, most would check out new posts in all the threads, none the less!

Thanks RG. Ive seen these ads and also the prices and the guy with the changing jeep. Half of these numbers are out of order. The others are either wrong or no reply. Then these ads are almost a year old...Ive given up.

And not to forget the recent ad on the Autox.in for the Kerala registered Willy's, according to the dealer it's been sold for 4.5L!!

Either he's off his rocker or people have too much money & no sense!
