You and Karl are not allowed to .

EDIT: Thanks Karl, didn't see Awini's post. How do I deliver the ice-cream to him? Courier?

Here's how it should look like when restored:

Whats the point? Awini has already got it right...

Strangely, the mechanic owner didnt say anything like "all she needs is a new battery"

Hmm.....it seems to be a '55 fiat with '56/57 tail-lamps.....or a '56 with a '55 numberplate light.....those tail-lamp lenses look almost brand new! The rear bumper is from a later (select/super-select) fiat though...
Also looks like zinc oxide primer around the bottom edges to prevent corrosion.....? Atleast he kept it covered!

Car is in Bombay and you cannot expect it to stand straight after being prone to rust. Seems to be standing for more than 5-6 years.

Watchman lives next door and may be uses the boot as his cupboard.
