A sad 'topless' mk3 Herald. May not exist now.

These were posted by someone in a triumph forum I frequent, taken by his friend from the UK who had visited India a couple of years ago. These seem to be taken at Rajasthan.

Last week me and my boss happened to see this beauty lying unattended inside our company premises. Both of us felt really bad seeing the condition it was in. The DAC (Drive Away Chassis) has been used for showing cut sections of various sub systems in a Jeep.

Default Rotting Mercedes Benz 200D !!!

Seen this Mercedes Benz 200D lying neglected at Shringartali on the nearby road going towards Guhagar, near Chiplun; which is my native place.
The car has been owned by Mr.Sushil Velhal, a senior political leader there who has bought this car in 1997 from Mumbai & used till 2007 & now its rotting opposite to his house as now he is using Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire.

Jaggu bhai LOL! If there was anyway it could have been taken out, I would have been the first one in queue.

Here are my two bits for this thread: sorry if these have been already posted earlier.

A sad looking Fiat rotting away to glory.
Rust In Pieces... Pics of Disintegrating Classic & Vintage Cars-photo0040.jpg

It looks somewhat altered here and there

This one looks like an American muscle car. I have seen it on TV but I can't remember its name.

These two pictures are of a dukkar Fiat near my house. Seems to be pretty well kept, though it is not used for the last 6 months at least. Can it be re-stored to it's pristine glory??

It is a gold with brown stripes 1967 Chevrolet Camaro, that sajo and I had seen and photographed 4 years ago back in 2006. It has a straight six and is rusting away at Null Stop, Pune near Sharda Centre.
Even four years ago, it was a piece of junk that had not been driven for several years. Probably worth nothing by now.

The first maroon Fiat I think is BMC registered. I've been seeing it for years, but in use at the time. The American car is a Comaro, not in use but in good condition. The dukkar Fiat is for sale, but no great shakes.

One more addition to this thread. I found it on the 80ft road from Mhatre bridge to Rajaram bridge. Has this been spotted by anyone in Pune before?

This is a Hillman Minx. I have probably seen this car before it was dismantled. It was parked near Fergusson College, and I think MTJ registered. Am I right?

Yes, the number was MTJ <something> (The plate is now rusted beyond recognition).

The C-pillar seems to suggest its a carcass of a Hillman Super Minx.

I think it is the same blue plastic covered car which was spotted by Sajo in the pics in the ownership thread of my Micra. Someone has moved it from the Mhatre bridge side to the auto repair shops near Rajaram bridge. It might have been parked near Fergusson college earlier; but I have no idea how it ended up near Rajaram bridge.

No idea about the Dukkar or its owner. May be Karl can tell you better about it.
