Default Advert in Pune Mirror

Seen this advert for the last few days in Pune Times:

Hyundai Sonata
Doctor's Hyundai Sonata Black 04 Model 5L & 1957 Model Vintage Golden Hawk Car 90L both excellent and immaculate condtn

Funny way to advertise a Classic, behind a Sonata?

As Ive said, that's exactly what I intend to do! Which is why I backed off without making any offer. Although I just told him once that its difficult to find a buyer with a good price considering its dieselised and "molested!"
While he's good at restoring any cars he gets to work on, I reckon he isnt really safe to deal with when it comes to dealings!

Meanwhile, I request y'all to keep an eye/ear out for a decent '55 plymouth engine you see/hear about anywhere!

Believe me, if that car were ever to be sold, no way it would go as low as 9 lakhs. 90 lakhs is not a typo.

i have to agree with Stanher here to a certain extent Karl. some rolls royces would command that figure of 90 lacs but not a Studebaker Golden Hawk for sure. i am not saying as low as 9lacs seeing todays conditions and the people ready to spend but 90 lacs is ridiculous. this is an unrealistic figure, i am sure you would also agree with me here. Again like i always say the car price is what the owner persives its worth to be. this also most will agree.

well we are headed for a recession so we'll see how al these prices hold up. But the last couple of months I have seen an increase in cars comming up for sale. I dont know if anyone else has had the same experience.

I sure hope to see it sometime soon. The way the Dilliwallas are buying cars at absurd prices I wonder when it will happen.

. dont expect it to happen anytime soon. the Dilliwallas are also famous for spoiling the market and the owners minds.

Hi Guys,

I found one treasure trove on the outskirts of Bangalore.

Imagine what cars are lying around there.

1) Dolphin--- With the original engine and the original fibre two door body

2) VW Fastback (later 1970's)---Completely awesome and original, floor needs some work, Engine looks damn good., papers available.

3) VW Fastback (early 1960's)---Neat car overall, good floor, little rust,but no engine, and no papers

(one of the fastbacks can be used as a donor car)

4) VW Beetle ( 1970's)--- Complete restoration job on it required, has engine and papers and all spares required to get the work started.

Did'nt carry the camera, went there the next day and clicked some snaps , will post the pics by end of the day.

By the looks of it,the owner wants to dispose all the cars.

Anyone game for it?
