Today these cars will not fetch much money, but even during the times when this was valuable stuff, out government agencies always let the goods rot. OUtside Gamdevi Police station there is a Pajero, lying there since a while, all tyres are flat. Just as the cops phone the local chaiwalla for tes, they could call the local mechanic to fill up the tyres. But no one bothers. Some of these cars are worthless, the Ford or Renault, only convertible BMW and Merc bus are worthy.
Sad state of affairs.

@harit
yes that pajero is lying there since quite sometime now and along with that is a black lancer too in similar condition.

If people here remember sometime ago a big scam regarding imported cars of Hi-rated people had happened and all the big SUVs and Big mercs and BMWs and many were confisticated by the IT department
Now all these cars lie in IT department grounds Opp santacruz(W) police station.
Its a sad state to see all the grass and wild plantation growing around these beauties and dragging them to their death.
there are a few S600 and Sl and SEC500 too.
many LC prados also.

Real Sad to see the cars like this.
will try getting pics if possible as I fear going into the IT department grounds.

Spotted this 520i (looks like an E34) in one of the metro parking lots, the parking guys have no idea about the whereabouts of owner, they are ready to give it away for one and half year of parking charges.

What's the parking charges ?? And what about keys and paper work ?
The car looks surely original and complete.

Yeah , and that too looks like a manual tranny.
What about the other legal things after we pay the parking fees?
All these cars make me think about those owners. Perfect setting for a film story.
either must have been underworld dons or must have lost everything in debt or been killed without anyone knowing.
gives me the chills.

Parking charges will calculate to something like sub 10 K. As stated earlier the parking guys have no idea about the whereabouts of the owner, so chance of getting key, papers etc is very unlikely.

I see a number and some garage name posted on the rear glass. So if someone is really keen they can try ringing that number and checking if they have any information on the owner.

OR

If you know someone in RTO who can get you more info on this car. if willing to spend some time and money. This "could" be yours.

^^Good observation I must say, though I have seen this car number of times in person I never noticed the same.

And as far as making this car "mine" goes, I would have gone that extra mile if it were a W124 E Class, but a beemer of this vintage is just not my cup of tea, but I am ready to work on it in case one of my T-bhpian brother is interested.

Default Abandoned supercars

Came across this article on msn auto today.

@mods, I tried to search for a similar thread but couldn't find one so started a new one. If one exists, please merge this.

Jaguar E-type Series 2 - Abandoned supercars

Its heart breaking to see some timeless classics being left to die. Rolls, Ferrari, Buggatti etc.

No i dont think these are based in India.

@mods, we believe these pics are a round up from across the world. So i feel, they were better off in the intl section.
