Two of the magnificant cars under the mercy of god and the owners. I can't believe a Buick going for a waste like this. Most of the cars begin with fast pace but due to the priciness of the skilled workers which dampens the spirit of the owners and thus this tragedy.

Buick looks like was under restoration and plug was pulled on the project saying this from the good looking body lines and complete body coated with red oxide to prevent rusting.

MYL is Belgaum, Karnataka registration. Wonder if this is the same car which used to be Gadag about 2 years back?

Would be good to see the Impala restored and put back to its former glory.

The bad boys car of yesteryear's Villains in Bollywood.

@ All,
Please give some info about these rickshaws, whether they are made here in India by API or else etc.
I've seen a handful of these kind of deserted Lambrettas. There's one in Mysore, I think in Kuvempunagar or somewhere in the Sayajiya Rd - DD Urs Rd area (called 'City') and is used as a chat stall.

A 20s (possibly) American car was spotted rotting in Jaisalmer in 1987. Where is she now?

Seems to be a running car and stood still to rot here, still in pretty good condition to get restored to perfection. Hope some one takes up the task.

Hi
I just saw your post, where in Toli Chowki are these beauties hiding, I would love to have at least one of them.
Keep up the good work
Warm Regards
