An SS80 seen briefly in a Malayalam movie...note the wheel caps- original? I have very vague memories of seeing these ones, did they not stay on too long? :P

'look nice IMHO though.

Due to certain constraints, have not been able to run my SS80 now for over six months. Battery may need replacement but the car otherwise is in an excellent condition. Would it be a good idea to let it go seeing that I have two other cars that I use regularly and getting this one up and running would not make much sense now as it will again be sidelined ?

When, even in 1990 it was chic to advertise products using a SS80 image:

I went to the same tyre shop again where I had seen an SS80 some months back (link) (Maruti Suzuki SS80 DX) and saw the car this time with some make shift add ons. It also has alloy wheels and wider brand new tyres and the owner said that it is for sale.
Picture was taken at night with mobile and hence the lack of clarity and quality.

Saw an immaculate white ss80 at Quilon last week bearing registration number K*U 484. The car was so beautiful that I could not take my eyes away and therefore could not click. Checked the MVD site and is with the second owner presently.

I know that car well.It was advertised for sale in the local newspapers about 6months back.asking price was Rs.45000/-. This car was indeed a good DX model till a few years ago when it was with the first owner in Anchal .Lot of changes have happened since then.Originality wise not much to talk about.

Record-wise this car is with the third owner as the first owner was the father of the second owner.
