I think easily available cars shouldn't be allowed in... things like 360/550/Gallardo/Murcie etc etc... all stuff here.
We need to protect the buyers of Aussie delivered cars from a damaged market price.
there should be some rule like...
"If there's more than a dozen pop up when you do a for sale search, it's a" NO GO"
So, things like 328 GTB, Dry sump 308's, and generally models that were never sold here SHOULD always be allowed in.
and anyway, where did your Lambo come from????
Well as you know i have other cars apart from my countach and testa.
These I imported because they were never imported to Australia (in the case of the testa) and
Countach's have been virtually impossible to find one for sale until recently.
The Testa's i saw in Australia for sale had been converted LHD to RHD (one is currently for sale) or had been hit hard. So hence i travelled to UK to find one.
But i would never dream of importing a Gallardo or 360 because they are a common production cars and the Aussie delivered cars are generally:-
Better cared for
Haven't been in accidents
Have a service history that can be checked- and generally come with service books.
Haven't been driven on salty roads and hence have a floor.
And only worth a few dollars more.
If your spending that sort of money an extra $20-$50K isn't alot in the scope of things.
I have had my share of surprises with 1 rare exotic import i purchased in the past.
But that was over 20 years ago.
Shit i feel old!
