Guys, my grandfather recently passed away. Now I'm trying to track down one of his two ex-cars.

One is a late 70s Padmini, license MMB2851. Last seen in Thane in 1992 or so. It used to be cream/beige in color.

The other is a Fiat 1100 with the backwards front doors, late 60s or early 70s. Registration was BMF6061. Used to be black, last seen in Matunga/Shivaji Park

Anyone?

Will keep an eye out for them. BMF 6061 would make it a 59 model car.
