Cyrus,

The Maserati has amazing potential for mods. What make and how much did it cost you ?

Rotorhead, the '49 Mercury coupe traveled ~8000 miles from the West to join other classics in the collection. The '53 Cadillac Eldorodo was gathering dust at a novelty shop and found home during my recent brief stop-over in Mysore. The '55 Oldsmobile was found closer home at Sapphire toys. The '49 Mercury cost me ~US$12 while the Eldorodo and Oldsmobile were about INR 600-700, IIRC.

@agspins: Thanks. I don't pursue them much like before but will surely pick when I come across one interesting.

@shahen9: Just to add to what Cyrus43 put in, American Graffiti is also generally priced higher.

@Cyrus43: Nice pics of the Maserati. Thanks. BTW, what make is it?

The finish is pretty acceptable for the price... although it does leave ample room for more improvement
