I plan to open the first premium classic car-only showroom/garage in Pakistan soon. As a car enthusiast all my life, I am aware that there is indeed a booming market for restored (and unrestored) classics in Pakistan currently, and with attractive pricing, professional service and strategic marketing, this thing could really take off.
I have two questions for our experts here...
1) Does anyone have a rough idea how much a decent showroom premises would cost (rent) in a nice location in South Karachi (eg Zamzama or Clifton) and who I could get in touch with regarding that, and
2) What are the current custom duties on classics? Do they vary from those on newer cars? For example, how much might it cost to import a 1960 Porsche 356B Coupe (1600cc)?
-your thoughts and comments much appreciated,
