I guess it has been abandoned.....its completley rotted.... I couldn't find anything that could be saved...... and of course, this was spotted somewhere near Pudhupet....

Well I had spotted this in puthupet itself, in the lane with all the scrap parts shops and garages. 'had posted about it here:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/557140-post524.html

It lay a little distance away from a very rusty Fiat 1100 select that was for sale (MSX 2727).

Spotted this ageing Austin in Thane. She has been standing on jacks since 76, and its remarkable how well the body has preserved, inspite of going through the floods. To be restored soon.

Note the Ambassador headlight ring.

This rather sad looking VW Type 3 Fastback has apparently been lying around Bandra for quite a while.
