Yes the green car is a Morris Eight. But I now think Anjan has been talking about another car on a previous page. Accessing the page on the phone can create these confusions because of the small size of the display and pictures.

A 'Sixties FIAT 1100 Delight taxi is seen here, photographed in Bombay, circa 2007.

Ladies and gentlemen- here's presenting MRK 8799.

MRK would be a 'Sixties Bombay number. I daresay that the locality looks familiar.

Bombay seemed so very *retro* in 2007. Nowadays, the 1100D /PP taxies are almost gone, and the double decker buses are hardly seen.

One could argue that the entire *soul* of Bombay has changed - In less than a decade. Sigh.

Good catch. They are owned by the owner of the dealership. As per a friend who worked there for a while, the beetle was dismantled to be restored a couple of years ago.

Since we are talking 1959 Bel Air, watch how far we have come in safety in 50 years....



Obviously, just larger did not mean safer.

This car was supposedly on original paint and I so wish the owner would have kept it that way.
