Ah, so it is indeed the same car. I always wondered what happened to it. If my memory serves me right this car was with the Jeejebhoy family at one point, and then with Mr. Setna of Apex Motors for years. A car with great history, very handsome.

Ok I can see form the pics that you are indeed on VIp road, where exactly Is it near the exit to Kohefiza?
welcome! Some of the pics were before I got the logo (just last month) and some after. I just got the genuine metal logos from Kashyap Auto (BMW dealer in delhi). Oh, and the license plates are back on now too. The exit to kohefiza begins from the boundary on my 5th main gate of the compound of my house (Hope you understood that!). My house is: 1 VIP Road. And thats that then!

This way you get to ride the bike and the stang gets its throat cleaned.

We could switch rides on the way back.

BTW any Baccarat decanters around in the Stang !!!
hehe. Yeah why not. No decanters in the stang though! Funny, now that you mention it, it was just last week that I and a freind were returning in seperate cars to bhopal, we raced crazy on the road all the way back at insane speeds at 3am with crazy diversions and construction work going on !!

May I just say that this thread has been VERY difficult to read through. Very poor formatting on many posts.
thanx Peraketh. Oh and about the formatting bit, well yeah, Im pretty new to this posting stuff on forums..Long time lurker-first time poster !
gotta lot to learn.
By the by, Nice logo you got there.
I play Dream Theater in my Mustang sometimes-though its hard to hear because its ferociously loud (The Car-not the band!)

All Mustangs in UK are LHD. Even the new ones. They dont make RHD ones , atleast not for mass market

Mustangman , I am a little suspicious now and please , do forgive us for being so. Just a couple of pictures and we'll all be happy now that we saw the legendary BOSS engine. Can we now see it finally ? Lest we all protest for a thread lock up till you actually do the needful.

yes they are. Please refer to the beginning of the thread for the answer to that question. Actually I myself did'nt realize this issue (of it being LHD and not RHS) for this long until Wasif pointed it out to me (page one). Now my life has completely changed forever since this revelation of epic proportions. How can I ever be the same man that I use to be, again?

Buddy, who CARES anyway-I HAVE the car and thats all what counts-sourced from Mars for all I care.

And I guess that position of the Mustang Curator cum Historian at the Ford Museum has more applicants than I expected eh?...oh boy! and all this time I thought the job was lined up exclusively for me, till now!!
wow.

And for the record when you go to the UK, and visit the classic dealers and/or collectors, you will be surprised to see the amount of LHD american cars imported by grey market dealers into the UK and sold which are merrily cruising down the road all over there.

thank you nitrous...so there you go!
However, it may be noted that there are absolutely NO RHD cars the other way 'round-that is, in the US. Not even classic jaguars and the like. There ARE a few Alfas in the US which are RHD, coz Alfa had moved out of the american market for a while-after the 80s , if Im not wrong-so some Alfas were imported for those people who have an Alfa on their mind and nothing else will do!
