Car Talk / Re: Smash Protect - the safest way to drive in the City Of Lagos by Ipfreely: 4:36pm On May 09, 2018
There's the obvious downside. If it makes it difficult to get/break in, the reverse would be the case.

Then what would happen when there's a collision and the frame is deformed, trapping the doors, leaving the windows as the only escape route, in the time after a vehicular accident, where seconds may determine survival?

-Or in an underwater situation, with a sinking vehicle.

Car Talk / Re: Lamborghini Recalls The Centenario To ‘repair’ An Overweight Label by Ipfreely: 7:28am On May 09, 2018
This is false information.

I don't know how this thread got this far with this completely inaccurate interpretation.

The label itself wasn't overweight.

The figures on the label indicated wrong weight figures for the Centenario, creating the possibility of these vehicles being overloaded.

It would be like an item of clothing being produced with an XXL tag instead of an XL tag.

There's nothing wrong with the vehicle itself , or the label itself, but the information printed on the label.

I don't understand this compulsion to make claims that can easily be verified.

This is not accident free. This has a certificate of destruction, and a Junk title brand.

The damage prompting the salvage title is not visible here because it's in the undercarriage.


Autos / Re: Please Automobile Gurus Tell Us What Happened To This Car That It Was Condemned by Ipfreely: 3:08pm On May 08, 2018
Well there are several possible scenarios here.

This vehicle appears to have been registered in Maryland. I think a likely scenario is that the vehicle title was held for a loan or lien by a bank or other institution, or the vehicle was purchased on a payment plan, co-signed most likely by a bank.

In both scenarios the vehicle title would be held by the lending institution. In Maryland when the debt or loan has been paid in full, the institution issues a SIF or security interest filing to the other party. This basically is a letter to the effect that the debt is completely paid and the other party now fully owns the vehicle.

However in the absence of a title with this listing, and I haven't seen any evidence of a SIF present, this vehicle will not be retitled in the USA, and I have come across cases where the vehicle was eventually not approved for export.

Hence the designation, parts only.

Of course this may be a vehicle user who took out a loan or lien on the vehicle and is unable to complete payment, and is attempting to auction the vehicle directly. Since it's designated parts only there would be less scrutiny.

OR the owner lost the original title and doesn't want the stress of getting the vehicle retitled, which seems unlikely.

OR it's a donated vehicle and the title is unavailable and the auction proceeds are intended for a charity.

Non-repairable / Parts Only / Export Only / Bill of Sale may be used interchangeably depending on the title issuing state. A non-repairable or parts only title definitely indicates that the vehicle cannot be re-titled or registered in the US. These vehicles may be exported in most cases.

There's not enough information to determine the exact situation with this vehicle. The above are just situations I've come across with Maryland and other state listings in the past.

In the Nigerian scenario, it would be like a guy that got his car with a payment plan from a bank, with the bank holding onto the original documents of the vehicle, then he decides he doesn't want to pay anymore and tries to sell the vehicle without the original papers.

That may be possible in Nigeria with each state running its registration independent of the other, it may be possible to get new original papers for the vehicle, and then register and use the vehicle.

But that would likely be very difficult, and actually illegal in the US. Designating it parts only would be a way to try to sell the vehicle without the title.

My recommendation: move on. Find some other clear titled vehicle. Title disputes at auction aren't situations you want to get involved in. However if you assess the situation and you believe it's worth the risk, then by all means. It could just as easily go smoothly without any hitches.

The above is my opinion based on the facts I've come across.

Thank you for posting info about the car. At least it would aid buyers know what they wanna buy.

People bring in worse ones....repair them and sell off. Not all Nigerians have the financial capacity to buy a complete accident free ride. Clean title from dealership. Not Auction.


I think its otherwise. (Dumb).
Was it manufactured by Benz and sold for 14k to first user?

Have a rethink.
Check d value in market.
Check how much it's parts costs.



Kindly tell him.


I will take u to a DPO who came to buy accidented ride after it has been fixed.


You're either deliberately playing ignorant or you actually are ignorant.

Nobody has a problem with accidented vehicles sales.

Just indicate the history and provide the VIN.

Thank you.

Oh My God my second love after my 504. This bus gave me beautiful and terrible memories. I remember a mechanic deceiving me about switching to a Toyota engine. Spent a lot of money and the bus couldn't even do Calabar to Uyo without breaking down grin grin

The headlights are out of this world. Even a blind man can drive this bus at night. That crystal-lite roof too with the electronic open/close feature was so cool that year. The AC? don't even get me started. You didn't need to turn on rear AC. The whole cabin would be ice cold from the front vents alone being open. Tint the rear and put an aftermarket woofer in the back and it's a mobile night club. That year, "Tinted glass permit" wasn't a thing so we had peace of mind.

The transmission is beautiful. You can flick it with a finger and switch gears. Buttery smooth!! This bus can run!! It was really unfortunate I knew nothing about cars so we were sold a very bad one. Spent more time at the mechanic than it did on the road.

Thanks for bringing these memories back OP. Happy sales.

I love this bus.

Modified: I scrolled up for one last look and remembered the power steering. A day old baby can do a full u-turn in this bus. Oh sweet memories!!!!

smiley grin

This was quite the encouraging review.

I don't think you are fair with your judgement. It's obvious this is not the type of accidented cars we don't like to buy in Nigeria.

The accident reported above can be anything including very minor accidents like small scratches on the car as one drives out of narrow parking spaces.

Also, it also seems the car was allowed to run in US after the so called accidents. So it most have been something very very minor and negligible for an 18 yr old car.

Let us be fair enough in our judgements. The seller is truthful enough for having provided the VIN.

You should also be more circumspect and pay more attention to issues before you leave comments.

The primary issue is not that the vehicle has had accidents.

The primary issue is that the dealer claimed it was accident free. That is a bold and easily verifiable claim to make.

I have not made any judgments about the severity or otherwise of the damage from the accident. As long as the VIN has been provided and it's not a Flooded Vehicle then that is really up to the buyer.

But when the claim, accident free, is present, well then that becomes false advertising. Which is wrong.
