RE: Cars for sale in Panama

i know this info is late for you.. but: for all other guys coming to panama and wondering about how to get a car... get one in the states and have it flown over here! cars are so damn expensive here! really. what we locals do is buy one from the states ove the internet nd have it shipped here. it's a lot cheaper! i swear... i hope this post is useful for you... p.s.: get a 4x4 by all means!

Hi guys,
My husband and I are selling our condo on the North Shore hee in Hawaii and moving to Boquete,Panama.  We will be needing a 4X4..however wanted a deisel.  How much you selling your truck for?

Everyone I talked to told us the import on vehicles is ridiculous and to buy there.  What's you take on that?   We'll be motoring around for surf quite a bit.

PS: We're selling our condo below market for a quick sale.  Let us know if you hear of a surfer who needs a spot 2 minutes from great waves.  We throw in one of our trucks for free.  If you want to check it out go google: alohatony.com   the unit is Ono Vista 51OE.
Catch waves!...good ones...and be safe,

Alison & Bill
Waialua, Hawaii



RE: Cars for sale in Panama

go the other way. buy cheap in the north and drive south, then sell for the same, or better if its a good vehicle. or suck it up and lose some cash on your wheels, it still beats buses and taxis, and you can do what you want to on your trip. better waves, less crowds.

RE: Cars for sale in Panama

We have been driving from San Francisco to Panama City. Our beloved Toyota 4runner 1990, Hercules, has made it safely here and unfortunately the next leg of the journey is not for him.

The engine has been entirely replaced for a new one by the Toyota Dealership in San Fancisco, CA. We have just run 12,000 miles on it since. It has been well taken care of with regular maintenance.

4 Door
Spare tire on the back (brand new).
Automatic / gas
CD/MP3 player/Aux MP3 player hook up
Automatic locks and windows
Alarm System

Optional new car parts (belts, oil filters, pipes, differential gasket), fire extinguisher, jumper cables, tow rope, triangle, and hitch.

$4200 Or best offer
The car still has California plates.



RE: Cars for sale in Panama

Anyone know the legal ramifications of driving a car around that's not registered in your name? What kind of paperwork is needed?
