    Peter Kumar has been around a lot longer than Alex Manos from BHCC. He sells everything, and sells it fast. From dealing with him he neither has friends or needs them. But his descriptions are usually pretty accurate, but like any car you can't see, have someone do a PPI if you're worried.

    Happened to be at the same auction once and all got on TV, that was fun.

    I had one experience with him and it wasn't good - due diligence on my part and the sale didn't proceed due to a whole lot of stuff he didn't disclose.

    Why do all his cars seem priced at the low or very low end?

    Like Adam said "have someone do a PPI if you're worried." My dealings have been there is a reason for his pricing, not necessarily bad.

    Does this mean that it is better or worse than BHCC?

    I've only followed these two by what you see on Ebay or other sales sites. We all laugh at the quality of the cars, but can't imagine anybody buying without the expectation of expensive restoration. Any PPi should only be so see what parts the car has. Kumar seems to have gathered some interesting Lancias. Selling a '67 now for $36,000.00. Sounds like its running but will need a lot of work. Certainly buyer beware if you want to drive away a "driver" quality car but if you are looking for a unique car eligible for all the classic Euro evens (Mille Miglia, etc.) its a good starting point. I would always look at these shop with an eye to a project car and not a daily driver or better.
