About 3 months ago my older brother, 81 years old, wanted to send a car over from the UK so that when visiting Cyprus he could drive it since the hire company he has used for years told him last year when he was here that he would no longer be able to hire a car as their insurance wouldn't cover them in view of his age. I said to him let me see what there is in Cyprus knowing well that car prices here are ludicrously high.
Old bangers selling for thousands, untill I mentioned it to a mate of mine and he said, I know of a car that a lady is selling and she is not asking for a lot. It's a Chevrolet Spark 2011, one owner from new with just 93000 km.
Apparently the lady recently divorced had 2 other cars and needed the money. 2000 euros she wanted.
I said to my mate, tell her i will give her right now 1500.He soon arranged for the car to be brought to my house, indeed the car was in pristine condition, 4 new tyres, MOT for 2 years and Road tax to the end of June. To cut a long story short , the lady accepted my offer and off we went to the vehicle transfer centre. All went smooth, paid my dosh and acquired the Chevy. I was lucky to have got such a real bargain.
Unfortunately my brother is seriously ill in hospital for over a month now, doctors not very confident that he will pull through. He has too many medical issues, the whole family is supporting him, I ring him every day reminding him that I have allready bought our ...season tickets for a Disco as well as a topless bar :lol: in spite of the doctor's views Im confident 5hat he will pull through, after all his car is waiting for him, we also planned to go skeying in Troodos in winter as well as a race on ....skateboards :D
Me and my brother are very close after all he saved my life in the earthquake of 1953....

Wish the best for your brother‘s recovery, Milti.

Just curious. What would have been the cost to ship a car to Cyprus from the UK and the added import fees since the UK is no longer in the EU?

Shipping costs from the UK to Limassol including agents fees here would be not less than £600. Then it would be the cost of import duty depending on the price of the car and engine size. All in all for a small car you could be looking for arpund 1000 Stg. Plus of course all the running around to get it released then register etc.
Same cars as the one I bought are advertised on Bazaraki way in excess of 3000 euros. I was extremely lucky with this car , apparently the lady urgently needs the money. I never met he4 since everything was done through a friend of hers and all above board. Solicitors in Cyprus are far more greedy than those in the UK. To witness a signature recently one demanded 800 euros. Fuck that I told him Im not a sucker. Went to the local Mouxtari and paid NOTHING.
Cypriots I have discovered are the loveliest, trendiest, money fucking mad, pretentious as well as ....bearded on planet earth !!

Believe me when I say that coming to Cyprus 4 years ago is by far the BEST decision I have EVER made in my life. I consider my self, truly, to be the happiest man on planet earth. I have a new lease of life, I love the weather, yes I love the people, yes I hate the driving bdetest ut above all I love seeing my grandchildren. Utopia does not exist anywhere but it's almost here in Cyprus. There is also freedom of speech, I express my views without the slightest fear. I have come to almost detest religion and all the nonsense surrounding an imaginary non EXISTENT creator. I express my views openly, also proudly and profoundly stating that Im a CYPRIOT , fuvk Greece and fuck Turkey. We are Cypriots just as my forefathers were. I see Tim Drayton daily , he is well familiar with this ...Old goats views !!.
You need a little money to live comfortably, I get by with around 1500 euros a month, I do not unwisely spend money, I do not pay 650 euros for a fucking short sleeve shirt or 495 for a fucking trouser belt !! My only passion is my red wine and it goes without saying , ....blondes with big knockers :lol:

Thank you for your wishes. Eric is still in hospital, he is able to eat small meals and has taken , with help, a few steps.
I call him twice a day constantly giving him courage, joking with him. For the first time in my life I told him that I love him.
I have a feeling he will pull through, he is a tough old boy and still has a few ambitions to attain.
Each day is encouraging , in spite of his age, 81 and a half, mentally he is very alert, has a terrific memory since he has NEVER used computers therefore relies solely on his memory, his mobile phones, he has loads, can be described as ....pre historic !! The only man I know who , on dreading money from a bank, offers the cashier a ....tip. By the way he never uses machines for withdrawing money preferring to go into the bank. An eccentric in a funny sort of way :lol:

Sounds like he’s old school. Nothing wrong with that. Lots of old school things remain tried and true. Especially when it comes to handling cash rather than plastic. I’m with him on that.

Keep telling him you live him. It might encourage him to fight on. I think it will anyway.
