I drove down to Goa last week and while there, went to a garage to get the car cleaned. The garage was closed (being a Sunday and all) but here's what I found:

Sure, thanks JayD!

And incidentally, if anyone else wants any parts from the Austin Cambridge please let me know ASAP.

The car is going to be broken tomorrow I'm told (today being quite rainy here)

There is a 1960 Plymouth Valiant with a 2.8liter slant-six engine rusting away at a garage near the BTM shoppers stop at Bangalore.

The car needs a total restoration. I unfortunately I didn't have a cam when i went there.

This is a similar one i found on the net. The car in Blore is more or less in the same condition as the one in the pics.

And here I was thinking that Karl is a clone of mine that I've found in our country, when I first got to know him!

Btw, what are the parts again yo said your friend with a Cambridge wanted? Could you let me know again?

Hehe..yeah I dont but well...someone else would....who knows!

Anyways, actually first thought of taking off the door handles, quarterglasses and the trim around the doortops....but suspected they couldnt be taken off that easily & those guys would surely wreck them taking them off.....so 'had them take off the whole doors itself to save them (& more, myself!) the trouble!

I didnt want the bonnet initially but my mech. insisted on it....the bootlid was corroded along the bottom so wasnt keen on picking it up....so was the rear bumper...
