Check out this Vauxhall,think its a 1950 model.The owner is a retired person who doesnt seem to be keen on restoring the car.He purchased it in the 70's and was using it till some 4 or 5 yrs back. Now age is catchin up so he doesnt use it, had asked him if was interested in selling it, but he stuck to his line.( NO ) was his answer, he'd rather keep it like this only..

Yup! that's a 180 alrite, but was a petrol but not for long! The current owner is planning on 'restoring it' ie, it has been converted to R.H.D(was L.H.D) earlier), and its gonna get an OM616 diesel engine!

this is the mercedes workshop in andheri and since it is on my property i have a few cars standing on my side.
the car had come for work and has been here for more than 5 yrs and with every monsoon the car gets worse. the owner has just forgotten about the car and has not even bothered to look at it. i have asked for the car but there has been no response from the owner. so sad as it may seem i have to watch the car die in front of my very eyes and i cannot do anything about it, even though my garage is right there.
the car is in fibre glass and it can be restored the headlights are in the car but the rest of the front has to be created.

Default another rusty mustang

this one's a 71 Mach 1. Seems salvagable. No engine etc. owner claims he has the engine with him. its a V8 manual. the earlier mustang i posted was beyond restoration...no engine or other parts. what you see is what it is. Owner refusing to sell.
