For me it was just a lot of time I spend researching how to get a car from
Australia to Europe.. Finding an agency that does it is not too easy..
Oh, and I forgot to mention - I also almost bought an Aston Martin for
$5000, all in NSW, Australia..
One thing is though very common to all those deals - the seller's English is
mediocre.. (Not that mine is good ;-) )

The Indo connection has been around for a long time. I'm somewhat bemused
to admit that years ago I was sucked into a scam for a Jaguar saloon in
Singapore. Ended up a losing some down payment funds but learned a few
lessons on buying cars long distance. It is amazing how far some crooks will
go once the hook is set.....dozens of emails, falsified records, shipping
documents, contact addresses and phone numbers, etc. Live and learn.

There is the other type of a deal you can come across.
Try this one from Australia:
(There were more adds of the car, even on Hemmings.)
You are welcome to drop him a mail if the Healey is still available.. ;-)
I almost prepaid the car. Thank God, some very decent being in Australia who
was to ship the car to Europe sobered me up.
The guy even presented a Title for the car.. Once I had it, I learned there
are no Titles in Australia for cars..
Fun Story. :-) And scary too...
The reality was:
1. The 'seller' was living in Indonesia
2. The car was definitely not in his possession
3. Although the address for 25% down payment was in Australia, the bank
account was in Indonesia.
BTW, the car # was BN2L229674, black. I wonder who the real owner is.. The
car is not listed in J Harper registry.
