More likely to be some East European nation. Look at some of the old cars in the background, and also not many people in Germany or France would buy an old Suzuki Swift/Esteem.

That's a good dive...Feel sorry for the owner.

May be they can come to India to learn how to drive on pothole's. BUT I ADMIT WE DON'T HAVE SUCH A ROAD HERE.

Somebody had sent me a forward with these photos a while back. It said that this happenned in Madrid, Spain And I GUESS the car is not exactly an Esteem. It could be Subaru Justy, which is the rebadged Esteem in export markets. Not sure, though.
