Spoiled for choice


Thumbed through an Antique Automobile magazine the other day (thanks Jerry) and when I came to the classifieds I could have cried.  Americans are spoiled for choice!  And those choices are generally under 500,000 THB.  In fact some are less than 150,000 THB, such as a 1950 Studebaker Champion (that’s 60 years old) with new exhaust, fuel pump, brakes and battery for US$4,975 (around 150,000 THB).

Or how about a Continental Mk III with everything original, concourse winner, always covered and stored inside for 300,000 THB? On another page was a 1953 Chrysler for 180,000 THB and in excellent condition.  If you want to spend a little more, then there is a 1946 Chevrolet Fleetmaster two door coupe with 37,000 miles on the clock with everything in perfect running order and it’s yours to drive away for 420,000 THB.  For that sort of money here, you will get a very run down pick-up, and that’s all.  As I stated – the Americans are spoiled for choice!
