Spotted at Mysore.

There are traces of a "Left hand drive" sticker at the rear, but the car's an RHD.

Judging by bumpers and headlamps, this is a US Rabbit, converted to RHD

The car was with me for few years. It was powered by 1.6 TD. OE sun roof.
My Daughters enjoyed every bit of it until it was with us.

Spotted this tastefully maintained Volkswagen Beetle yesterday in Chennai near Adyar Signal. The driver was really proud of his car and even had some nice alloy wheels matching the car shade.

PS: I applied some filters and processed the Photo to make it look brighter.

This looks like the Goa car that was for sale in KL. Hopefully the butchering that was done to it will get corrected by new owner.

Not in India, but think this might be of interest to everyone. A 1952 Volkswagen Zwitter which is a blending of components of the split window and oval window VW - http://barnfinds.com/1952-volkswagen...very-rare-car/

This is a Matador van, which has been converted into a VW Splitwindow replica by Motormind customs, Bangalore.

They have modded it to resemble a Split Salesflap , but the opening is significantly larger than the original. Guess its going to be used for a food stall.
