I understand that the Dept of Motor Vehicles in Ayuthya and Sisaket are not too busy these days then ............

they always seem to make a point of keeping the auctions, locations and dates a secret from the public and the reserves on the cars are far too high they dont want just anyone getting a bargain.

They are published in thai media, and online. 

 

You pay 100000b to attend (refundable) but i guess thats just to ensure you are serious. 

 

No bargains to be had, the dealers bid up to near market value, so you might 'save' 200k....

Time for the Taiwan solution. They "invite" the owners and scrapyard enthusiasts when they publicly destroy luxury cars imported without tax. You may find some tear jerking pics on the web...

9 raids 122 luxury cars seized! I smell BIG trouble in Luxury Land. I guess they could use the old "the brown envelopes got lost in the mail" excuse. There has been a serious disconnect here somewhere.

Stay tuned for auction date, if you to  have money to burn,

There may be an auction - there again some may well "be spoken for", and disposed of "creatively".

 

It does appear that someone has upset the system doesn't it. I wonder if it is a question of showing "new money" where the boundaries are...

 

Just musing aloud really about the sudden enthusiasm for enforcing the law.

:rolleyes::rolleyes:

Super-cars are the work of the devil, and are nearly always owned and driven by morons, the kind of people who think that having a hot tub in their living room is tasteful, who employ experts to stock their book shelves with the 'right kind of books'.  Super-car owners in Thailand are particularly stupid. They either pay the tax, and end up with a car which has cost them at least twice as much as it would have done in the west, or they buy from the 'grey market' and risk losing their car completely, as is happening now.  I hope the police dump the cars into the sea to make a home for fish.

 

They might be stupid, but for sure smarter than you to be able to make such money ! Ridiculous comment !

These cars are "artwork" to many of us and it would be stupid to crush them ,

 

Make the owners build a museum for the people to admire these cars ,  and  let the owners go to the museum once a month , start them up ,  hear the VROOM VROOM , take a few selfies  and  go home until the next month ,

 

When the promised new government shows up , they can make a new deal.......that will be in ummm 2 years ....or 10

 

or have a big car lottery , one car a month and use the money for schools

Yes, I hear the Red Bull heir is a member of MENSA International. He has lots of supercars, Steven Hawking must be shitting himself.

All this increased vigilance is going to make it harder for me to sneak in my 1998 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck when I retire to Thailand.  Is there any reduced rate for an antique?
