salam brothers, alhamdolillah, i have bought a 1985, diesel charade from a pakwheeler, who's a really nice gentleman. we had a very smooth transaction. Here is how it looked when i bought it.
one of the tyres got punctured on the way to my house from the seller's house. There was no jack or paana and very kind charade owner who was passing by, lent me his jack and paana and that's how i got home. the next morning, the car won't start, so i let it be :p.
a few days afterwards, i towed it to the workshop. the mechanic fixed the generator, the battery, activated the gauges n did a little trouble shooting. I got the puntures mended and replaced one of the tyres. I also got a 'paan paan' wala horn installed :D.
On the way back from the workshop, the car broke down twice, once due to some problem with the cluth, which a motorcycle wala mechanic fixed, and the second time, the engine just stopped running in the middle of the main boulevard at prime rush hour (it was very embarrassing :$).
I will update u guys with the progress on restoration of my car. So far, i'm lovin' it and i am very fortunate to it alhamdolillah
