Thumbs down Pics: Imports gathering dust in India

Every city has it. Cars imported years or decades back have either been too difficult to maintain or have fallen into the wrong hands. They end up just lying and gathering dust at one place. Sometimes its even new cars which end up this way.

Lets have this topic containing pics of such cars. Please remember no wrecked cars or badly maintained cars. Only cars / bikes that are just dumped or lying unattended.

Some places to find such cars are garages (like the kit-Countach) which repair imported cars. Or even police stations and ports. Lets see who can come up with a rare find. All the best.

Edit : You could also throw in some old Indian vintage / classics.

Difficult to tell. Amazon's normally have an AMAZON sticker on the side of the car.
I dont know if its a coincidence, but all the Amazon's i have seen are in dark green.

No, that's obviously true...but I've seen one too many 're-badged' Toyotas in India, pretending to be Lexii. That was my point

A W123 Mercedes dusting away to glory. Garbage dump on the other side of the car. Can be bought as a spare car for restoring another W123. It still has its original headlights, tail lights, LHS door handles and mirrors.

A Mini just lying unused. The owner has had this car for the past ten years. Roof, right door and wheel caps are painted green. The rest is white. Seen a few years back. Not sure if the onwer has done anything with it.
