Just behind my house there is this garage where the guy has an old imported M3 (done 80k odd miles), M5, some Audi A4 quattro and an Escort Cosworth for sale. We did go to enquire bout the cars and the prices seemed ridiculously tempting but the paperwork seems fishy and preferred walking away and admiring these dusty beasts while passing by.

There was a case of a conman running around Bangalore boasting about his connections with various ministers - he claimed to be Karunanidhi's grandson, for crying out loud! He was picked up by the cops last year.

The car was an integral part of his facade, and was seized when he was arrested. It's been lying there ever since. Here's the link to the article - you'll also find a picture of the car.

So 1 of our forum members recently checked the place out and the cars are not there apparently. Seems like the blue m5/M- kitted car with the side fins on 18/19 inchers and the maroon m3 (apparently an M-kitted 3 series) have gone from there.

S2, thanks for your PM, the garage you mentioned is the garage where all my cars get done, also my office is right there. The maroon one is not an my but an E36 4 door kitted with an M kit, that car has been there forever and I have tried to purchase it but as you said it has no papers and no chance of the papers being sorted anytime. The blue one you may have seen is also a 3series owned by one of our forum members, it is actually white, blue and red. That car has an M engine, black 17 inch wheels, nice brakes and as far I know its not for sale.

A Toyota Celica lying unattended, gathering dust and sinking into the ground somewhere near Baga beach in Goa.

I think it is a Jaguar S Type. At a major film production house.
