The beige car 2048 is still spotted on Goa roads from time to time. No idea about the others.

Interesting to see the green car is probably an oval window car with a larger windscreen grafted in. It still retains the W decklid and smaller front windscreen. Side glasses again appear to be larger.

Certainly a graft, and it's not even centered properly! Could the side glasses possibly be looking larger due to the white tape around the frames creating an optical illusion?

Thee VWs from my end;

A 1961 Beetle

Starting ground up restoration as we speak. Its dismantled now hence will wait for something to take shape before posting.

A 1966 Splitty Bus

Also was a ground up resto job, soon going in for painting, so posting an almost finished tinwork pic.

This Van has been a Pune van for decades, used to rot in a garage for many many years. I'm really glad she is being saved.
