Yes, the car is with another mustang which must have joined Tutankamun . Old family issues and don't know when such disputes would be settled. BMW no idea

Another Mustang?

Does this car by any chance belong to Nutan the actress? I had read a while back where V-16 posted about it:

The V-8 was lying at her Colaba house all rusted and disintegrated (but not for sale, mind you)
Two Mustangs and rusted. Matches

That connection I don't know but these cars are not at Colaba . If I do chance upon the owners will ask and post . Some historians on the forum would be able to guide better

I have seen the BMW abandoned in Versova back in 1994. Somewhere near the place where one could take a boat to Madh Island

I don't remember if I'd posted pics. of this Super Select here before but I have seen it quite often and clicked it even earlier. Been seeing it at this place for more than 5 years (though it's been there even longer than that!)
The owner I was told retains it on their property as a 'good luck charm' and therefore doesn't want to sell or maintain! Seems far too gone anyway. Note the original numberplate lights!

What seems to be a 1937 Austin 10 Cambridge at Madras. Sent to me over whatsapp by a friend Amaresh.

Found this somewhere outside my college. Quality sucks, I know, but can anyone identify this?

Used to walk past this everyday on the way to class. The pain was almost physical. It's like watching the love of your life waste away.

This is not the Nutan Car. The 6 cyl was sold lightyears ago and am told went out of Bombay and the V8, i dont know what happened to that one. This is another Sad story of a family which owns this beauty as well as a 74-76 Mustang as well. I think they've junked that one when the engine of that car went missing many many years ago. This one survives somehow and mind you is not for sale. Used to see it in pristine condition being driven around but i guess must be a family spat or something why its not out now. Must get to the bottom of this. Thanks for reminding

Attachment 1426596
The one on the right is the one i perfected my driving skills as a teenager and had to let it go as dad sold it to a relative for a measly amount.

The one on the right, i lusted after it for 8 long years (whole of my teenage years) and twice was THIS close to buy one, but guilt of squandering away dad's hard earned money on a big rusty toy made me walk away.

(sigh)


On the other hand this looks like a house of a gangster or rich man in late 80s, early 90s movies

Contessa for the boss, Omni for the henchmen, and maybe a Gypsy for the spoilt brat son.

God! What a coincidence! There was an abandoned Gypsy and a few old Mahindras nearby as well. Coupla Ambys too, for the mom maybe? And an old Tempo minibus too, for the rest of the goons eh?

Well, all of them are registered to the Bihar goverment, so about the gangster part, no comments.

Would give credit to the photography and not the car

Cheers

The BMW pic is not from Mumbai, its from Pune. The car is rusting alongside the road between the Tata Motors plant and the Toyota and Mahindra dealerships in Pimpri.
