Just a quick note for now....
There is a 1970 Beetle in the clutches of a scrapper. Its due to be hacked up but the date has been extended till tomorrow at my request. Its said to be in pretty decent running shape. I hope all things like battery etc are present. I havent actually seen the car but when the guy says I can buy it off him, its usually something with potential.
Have negotiated over the phone and the last price is 34k rupees. Papers are clean (new computerised book type) but taxes fall short till 2003 if I remember correctly. Not a problem to sort out.
Does anyone want to take this car???? it can be a good daily beater as it is or a new owner might drive it for sometime before going for a full resto , if he wants to. Please note you MAY have to sort out a few odds n ends to make it a reliable runner.
If anyone is REALLY interested, please let me know today only. Tomorrow morning its heaven or hell for the poor bug.
You may contact me on my cell 0345-2690503. Please SMS me first to check if Im free and give your PW ID too. Please dont expect me to call back to people leaving missed calls or those who want to exchange a barrage of SMS.
@ MSM and Naveed.
Id never be bugged. Im tied up a bit but we might be able to sort out a meeting, maybe at my workplace, with prayers I dont get bogged down with the workload.
