Honda cars have been a popular brand in Sri Lanka for an extended time. Stafford Motor Company (Pvt) Ltd., which is based in Colombo 10, is the official distributor for Honda vehicles since the 1960s when its founder Mr. Felix R. de Zoysa obtained the distributorship for Honda branded automobiles in the country. Due to his passion for vehicles, Mr. de Zoysa was also nicknamed as “Mr. Honda” in Sri Lanka.
Looked at the 'gem' today, it is but a mere cobblestone. On paper it gave me a raging boner, first owner, (Registered to a company), Camry 2.4 Euro spec that was imported brand new in 2004 and all eco test reports until 2020 ❤️. The car was priced higher (about 3 lakhs) than the market but is she the one? uwu. Alas no. She is a but a common mongrel with so much dents (big ones in the rear and side doors). The side mirror was Royal Blue and the car is supposed to be black onyx The search continues....
Back in the day when i was searching for FIT GP hybrids, I had a look on almost all the cars available on the two main sites which are closer to me and there was this one car which had a mugen kit and looked very sporty but had above 150k on the clock. So i gave up the idea of purchasing it since it was a high millage which i wasn't looking for + didn't have proper history. But afterwards i saw the car getting advertised in different car sales one after another.
Came across the same car yesterday accidently, and the ODO meter reading is now 89k. Just imaging what is the level of mentality of most of the car sale owners in SL.
For once in my automotive life I got 2 options to pick from and I was pissed when I only had 1 option to pick, and now I got 2 options to pick and that's even worse, I can't f**kin pick.. Because I'm gonna be stuck with it. You know its like picking a one night stand. You know you gotta go down on the one you pick, so you need to pick the most suitable one.
