Wow , thats awsome

Its in kanimangalam now , in very good condition , actually the guy who owns that car now owns a workshop , he is caring the car like any thing .

If you have any contacts in chembukkavu , can you try to get the snaps of the yellow SLK , we had never seen it on the thread here.

A yellow KL registered SLK doing the rounds in Coonoor now. The person has bought a bungalow here and is renovating the place. Will click the day I see it parked someplace. Must be the same car.

Rumor has it that the person is a ministers son from Trivandrum. Must have changed hands from Bangalore. Will post pictures the minute I see it.

Can a car spotted in Coonoor be posted in the imports spotted in Kerala thread?

The old Landcruiser is owned by Khaja Group. They has one more LC of same type. If I'm not wrong, its 1985 model. I've the photos of their whole collection which I took last year, but since they son't like to public it, I've not posted it.

There is so called 'tiger-scratched' sticker on the LC too. Foby, they place that sticker just as a sign of idendity that its Khaja Group's car, almost all the vintage & classic cars in their collection too have that sign. It's not at all a part of belief or any other ritual as you mentioned about the horse foot print.

Here is an old photo of Khaja's S350 I've posted. I this you can see the sticker mentioned above.

Yes he still carries his old sonata v6 , the yellow slk is now missing from thrissur

when I spoke to his driver , he told me that they used to carry the car to bangalore and ooty in a container truck.

his son and daughter studies in Coonor, they also bought a bunglaw there.

The yellow slk is no more in thrissur now.
