Good for you. If you are not satisfied, walk away. Many people do not have the

willpower to walk away. And then only tears. But too late.

The right car is out there.

Glad to hear you never took it, hard choice but a good one. rather wait for the right car to come along. I am in the classic car scene and get to see a lot of collections etc ,. If I find something like a Granada Perana that is the real deal I will PM you.

Strange today I spoke with Kobus vdM and sons and they say they have NO peranas and these are not peranas.
I have asked them to clarify, as they have been advertising them as peranas, and now upon purchase discussions they not peranas at all.
Anyone dealt with these guys before? Online reviews are bad and the prices heavy ...
