Problem for potential fanatic buyers is that most of these icons get sold by word of mouth or to close contacts of the seller and never reach the media.

Good luck :)
Thanks for those encouraging words - trying my best to keep the eye on the ball!! As you said, most of these sales are down to word of mouth and/or known associates......... :roll:

Perana - I had a look at that ozzie website........wow, they want big bucks for those Perana's downunder! I personally like the yellow one, but for a staggering 120000AUD they must be mad 8O 8O

Just an update on that Canary yellow Perana which was posted by Insomnia for an almighty R400k.........apparently it sold for R380k!! I almost fell on my back when the owner informed me in a return e-mail!!

I see that he's advertising another yellow Perana on Junkmail for R110k which is a write off - all of the internals that could be saved were then transferred to a donor MK 1 body.........this however don't make it a Perana :| :|

Howdy ters - you didn't by any chance acquire these Perana's?? 8)

In any form, that was a sh$tload of mula to have paid for a Perana....even in the best\original of conditions!

I see the write-off one was only advertised for 2days...........SOLD!!

I saw both these cars , and the 2nd "Perana " was a good buy .. Had a quick look at it and could of had it for about R80k ... 8O . The owner sold his RS 2000 , 1600 Sport and a 1300GT to a UK buyer. Wont surprise me if the 2 Capri's are also going to UK ...

Hey ters - thanks for sharing your pic's - nice Capri you have there!!

As you say needboost, I would also not be surprised if the cars did go to the UK........in comparison to our market prices, this will be cheap as chips over in the UK! :roll: :roll:

Definitely cheap over there. Was actually thinking about the "Perana " last nite, wondering if I shouldn't contact the seller and grab the "Perana" for R80k... Suppose that's what happens when one procrastinates ... :(
