    Still in the perfect state I bought from JM. A function of very few miles, I'm afraid, but otherwise good. Not sure about the Rally-off to the UK next week for a month, so probably not.

    So, is there a 250 California in Perth? If so, is it here permanently? Why Italian plates?

    I have no idea; but I can't see anyone paying $2 million to $5 million US and then another 43% on top for tax.

    might have a import license.

    and then take it along to a FCA event and 8 out of ten would not even know what it was.

    Paul Vestey has brought his California out for a couple of Classic Adelaides. Seen three of them while over here in the USA.

    Yes there is and yes it's here to stay so!

    The Italian plates because it's on Italian plates :p They're the original ones it had one when it came over from there.

    Sorry Pap but the Krudd Gumminmint has made the LCT laws even more convoluted.
    New rules now are that cars that get 7.0L/100km fuel consumption or better get subjected to LCT at $75k.

    You'll start seeing diesels as base models for euro marques trying to exploit this exemption. Good example is the recently released Merc E class Sedan, the base model is the E220 Diesel at $80k compared to the base E250 petrol which is around $94k. Almost 15k difference!

    still the yanks probably pay 1/3 what we do :mad:

    This car definitely had WA plates "59 CAL"
    No expert, but looked and sounded the part-LWB, I think.
