Welcome to FLife.
Are you planning on taking the BB to KL?
Hey thanks mate. I'm most likely going to keep the Boxer there as it has a nice plate along as well & easier to sell in future.
Malaysia is easy on tax for classic cars, anything above 25yrs qualifies, no yearly MOT, reduced road tax & great mountain roads. BUT dealing with the people in customs & everything else is a PITA
My friend's Strato was stucked @ the port warehouse for 6 months while they take their own sweet time to clear documentation even after he "greased" their pocket....
In Singapore, sighhh. Classic cars must be 35yrs & older. We get taxed 130% on invoice including shipping, insurance etc. We also have to pay a 10year once COE (currently @ Euro40K) extra to register it. By then, any speculation is gone down the govt. pocket. Then, bi-annual inspections & the worst part, just 28days to drive a year. They give you a coupon to tear, though some guys risk it by driving around in wee hours or have a fleet of classics to share the coupon.
Lastly, UK & EU have a lot more experts to maintain such cars, especially carbs @ cheaper prices. When I did my engine out on the TR, it costed me almost Euro7000 & a clutch job for the V12 Lambo is Euro11K @ the agent! So you guys have it very cheap on maintenance.
Hi Jon, great to see you here. Congrats on 17967 again.
The French Riviera is pretty dry and is no problem to old Ferraris, unless you're garage is at the beach (lucky man if it is). In winter it can get damp so I would say get decent storage and a dehumidifier. Are you planning to do the MM Tribute again? I'm very likely doing it again in 2013.
Glad to see you're so active here! Cheers
& thanks for the congrats again.
Forgive me, but did you enter your 550 this year? What's your start no? Mine's 541.
I'm trying to enter MM again but my 3rd kid's delivery is on 24th, within that few days of MM
So, maybe 2013 but we hope they'll continue this tradition as the few accidents this year wasn't encouraging.
After I bought this, I realised it's probably not eligible for most rallies including Tour Auto as it might not get a FIVA. So, probably have to get a cheaper British or some old 911 for those events.
The dealer is garaging my Boxer for free under their trade insurance & they get to excercise her every now & then. Helps that he has a 355 spider too. Hey, if you're not too far, maybe, can you help me to run a check on the Boxer? They're @ Canterbury, a Lotus & Caterham specialist.
