Hey Ajit,

Quite a car you've got there - the 280S is a beauty with a lot of history. How long have you had the car?

And what are these other classics you've got?

Hey Hari, Do you mean to say that you have bought Ajit's car (the car in the first post in this thread)? Or are you restoring another one?
