An Austin 10 4-door sedan that I've seen rotting away at an old abandoned house in Secunderabad. The car has been turned over onto its side now, with many other junk dumped around it.

This was how the car looked a couple of years ago:

And this was how it was when I first saw it in 2009:

Saw this adjacent to the Waterstones Club in Andheri.
Have no idea what it is, but looked to be in a bad condition.

This is my first post (excluding my introduction, of course) and it is a sad one! Can we title it iron(y)oxide?

A Citroen Traction Avant(?) I spotted at a garage in Mysore. He has many other old imported bikes and cars in various stages of dismantle, but I sincerely pray that they don't end up on this thread.

Spotted this at the Worli Police Station.
Recently seized or has it gotten worse since it got there.

Hope whatever keeps it out in the open and neglected at the police station gets sorted soon.

Looked very carefully for chassis number or any identification marks to take pictures of, but couldn't find anything. Maybe I didn't know where to look.

Just a couple of meters are in decent shape.

Also knowing our cops, didn't want to hang around too much clicking someone else's property so brazenly

But would it be too much to donate a tarpaulin or an old car cover that is being discarded for it?

I'm curious, can something be done with this car? Or, is it a total write-off? Experts?
