Well Keith Moon did hand-paint his car (Bentley I think) Lilac! And yes, he did indeed deposit one into a hotel swimming pool which was on the first floor! How he did it only God knows!!

It didnt look like it had moved in a while. Even the tyres were going flat.

Then its a recent development. I had gone to see the car about a Year and a half ago and it was spotless, a broker had shown it to me.

A year and a half back too it was just lying around at the same place. Here's the post by V12 in 2005 :

A Rolls Royce SIlver Shadow parked off the Mumbai Pune Expressway in Panvel. Another car parked a few bungalows away was a Triumph TR3A Roadster. Will try to get pics of it sometime.

Spotted this lovely Beetle in Bandra recently. It looked pretty 'chic car' though.

Its regularly parked at Bandra. I believe it belongs to a big dealer, and is probably for sale.

Saw this immaculate looking MG this morning opposite Kanteerava Stadium, Bangalore on my way to work. I could not get any pictures of the front view because of the traffic. What model of MG is this and are there many more in India?





PS: I think we need to have a seperate Bangalore thread for such vintage sightings/collections.
