Julian this is for you. It is in very good condition, I don't remember it is
80 or 90.

But I love Rover cars, long time back my uncle used to have Rover
big in Hyd, he told me this is specially imported for some Nawab in Hyderabad. I remember that car, it was dark green and very beautiful wooden dash, very silent while running and inside very comfortable seats finish like seen in Bentley.

Few years back I tried to rescue one Rover rusting in open, but unable
to get because the Mechanic did not give the owner's contact. It is sad
those who knows the value of such British cars, does not get these cars and those who has these car does not take care or spoil it.

These cars and the building belong to Essa Bin Nasser Bin Abdullatif Al Serkal. He has quite a few cars in his collection, mostly classics... there are a whole bunch of American classics, he has a few military vehicles, a jeepney, a hotrod, a Beetle and I even remember seeing a Padmini once.

Here are some pictures from back in 2003, my college was near this place
