Hey! just posting two cars i found!
This is a Fiat Balilla-1937 im told. The car still runs like new and started on the first crank itself. Its owned by an old garage owner. He also has a spare engine for it! Its in mint condition.It was originally owned by his dad who sold it long back and he bought it back from the owner!

great find jayd. there also is a baby austin in the background.
the fiat is very complete and in great shape. the owner sure does love the car and this is the best example of keeping his fathers sentimnets alive.

Here are the pics of the austin.This too was in mint condition. And runs very well.










Yes speedy, the owner really loves them a lot. He's quite old, and runs the workshop. I dindn't see any other cars there though. He comes everyday and sits with the cars! He sometimes rents out the fiat for marriages, that's his source of income! And he seems very happy too!!

yes jayd even the austin is in good shape.
wow the guy comes everyday and spends time with his cars is commendable. as long as the cars are kept well and are taken care of i think he has the right to earn his source of income by renting it out. there are those type of people who do shoddy jobs just because the car becomes a source of income and want to earn more profit from it.

There is a junked shell in Lonavala (not for sale), which is the only one Ive ever seen myself. There are plenty of later 500s, the Bambino, in Pune, Lonavala, Nagpur and Bombay. Im sure a couple more Topolinos must be hiding in Bombay and Pune.

We have seen another one, remember? The one in the lane opposite E-Square parked in the bungalow along with some British bikes and an Austin?
