A small narrow one way lane opposit the Russel Market that leads you up to hotel Harsha. You can find almost anything you want but make sure you dont park your car anywhere nearby. A friend of mine got a wheel cap for his car at a very good price. His elation lasted only till he found out that the one on the other side had gone missing.

God bless...

Let me have a nice walk after lunch to browse thru the wares, I am put up on Queens Road

its a good idea to walk these lanes and not to take your car in close proximity of these places. even my cousin had the wheel caps of his 94 accord stolen there and re bought by him. he felt like a fool haveing to pay for his own wheel caps

I was warned of the same when i expressed interest in visiting the Chor Market in Hyderabad (Never did get round to going there, though).

My friend was able to pick up a hard disk from there for just 100/- bucks. Only 10GB of it was usable though.

My uncle had a Austin Westminister 6cyl.! 1962 model, what a car!
In 1980 it was sold to the famous guy from chor bazaar. I went personally to see it being broken down . very sad still about it. In 6 hours actually nothing was left of the car.
I had kept the badges till maybe 1990. but now have no clue where they are

why did'nt you save it instead of watching it break. what a nice car doen the drain or rather the scrappers. find the badges scooby they would be worth alot if not monitorily then sentimentaly for sure. dont know how true it is but i've heard there is an entire rolls royce in a shop in chor bazaar. the guy wont sell the car
