This decent looking Austin sits on the footpath in a large housing society at Shankershet road. Havent seen it run ever, but definitely looks in running condition.

A friend gave me this picture of a Chevy parked in a hotel lobby. People in Deccan area should recognise it.

Wow! the dodge looks great. But the bumper and grille puts it down. Chrome would rid the car of the el-cheapo look!

This might seem a bit off topic, but can anyone help in drawing up an itinerary for all car collections in India open to public including location, opening times etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1953 to be exact. This is owned by a Parsi Gentleman who is the cousin of the other Parsi Shipping Magnate also fond of cars. This pic is at Worli Seaface where one can see the car parked in the Basement of his newly constructed building. He also has a Land Rover, and and a few S classes strewn around.

That is possibly a mid 30s Ford (V8 perhaps?) or even Chevy. Typically butchered car, possibly rented out to tourists in Goa. Missing folding hood and windscreen and frame appears to be locally fabricated. Perhaps it is a chop top?

The Buick above is a 1939, the Triumph Spitfire a 1964. Beyond this the pictures were spectacular. You guys are having fun and I envy you.
