A pleasant surprise: The very same LR had also appeared in this thread posted by me earlier, when it made a guest appearance at a Vintage & Classic Car/Bike Rally in Nagpur in 2009. Check out the pictures again here for matching.

This is one of the trendier, upmarket Indian restaurant in Nottingham and the rick on top does justice to the name of the restaurant.
Absolutely amazing to see that crucified three wheeler so far away!

Seems to be a Toyota Lucida, MPV. A hit with bollywood in the late nineties.

This is a scene from the market area in Maharana Pratap Nagar, Bhopal. I sighted the Nano yesterday at this cosy parking place.There is no slope of any kind anywhere around the car. Its all concrete cliffs there!!
Wonder how it reached this spot at the first place? Must have been bodily lifted and left there?

As for the missing statuette, I believe there is a switch that lets you flip it into the grille. While driving the statuette automatically sinks into the grill once a set speed has been achieved.
I guess you are mistaken my friend. The Mobile Store is owned by the Essar Group that is the Ruia's whereas BK Modi, brother of Lalit Modi owns the Spice group.
