So while going through my old stuff, I managed to find a lot of interesting stuff. One of which was Old Posters & Brochures. First Page of some of the Brochures has been posted here (The Classic Advertisement/Brochure Thread) & Full Pics of Gypsy related content along with other DC Design Posters are posted here (Got Gypsy’ied - My brand new Maruti Gypsy 4x4)

Esteemed Members, need you advice for a 1996 NA Sierra. Car is still with the original owner, maintained decently well with around 150000 on the odo. Tyres need to be replaced, battery is ok. Suspension doesn't make noise though some rattles from doors and dashboard. Engine doesn't give a back compression nor there is any black smoke.
The owner is now in his late 70s and can't keep up with the beast. He is looking for buyers but couldn't find any at his asking price of 1.00 lakh.
What do you guys suggest, should I give in to the temptation and bite the apple??

What's the location ? Do you have pics of the car ? How about the scrap rule , the car must be pretty old right ?

We had a 98 model Sierra NA in our family in average condition with 250K on odo , it was sold for 50K in 2007.

Can understand the pull

1L is still high. Assure him you will take care of it like he did, and suggest that his price is a little high. See what you can do, but remember to have a good mechanic who can help you maintain it.

50k was a pretty low price. Thanks for letting me know. Will try to bargain at this figure.

I have a good old trusted mechanic who maintain my car's. He is dead against buying a "white elephant 🐘" that at this "exorbitant" cost

Honestly just bite the bullet!
- There are very few Sierras in India in working condition.
- Is still with it’s first owner, he must have maintained it well.
-Negotiate to the price you find apt after you consider the expenses of the battery, tyres and other small titbits.
