Here is a Dharampur Herald, featured previously on TBHP:

Incidentally, this pic. was taken by yours truly at the HAIG show @ Secunderabad club in 2009.


The white one with the Curewell owners was this, the red DHARAMPUR plates are still intact under the MEV plates:

Just sent to me recently a snap of a 1947 Oldsmobile being restored somewhere in Mumbai. I think this was grey earlier.


Cheers

There is a lovely red beetle in front of it...might be a super beetle going by the tail lights, bumpers, bumper guards etc

It is indeed a Super beetle, but sadly LHD.

What is so sad about LHD Cars? I have always believed that LHD vehicles are overall better than RHD ones as they were meant mostly for US market where the safety regulations were more stringent than countries where RHD vehicles were sent.

Is this in that filmwallahs bungalow compound in Andheri?
If this was grey earlier, then he has two more, one was once painted as a taxi in black + yellow for a shoot.

I mentioned so in the context of INDIA where using an LHD car in the roads is very cumbersome.Moreover I understand that in some places re registering LHD cars is being discouraged.That is why LHD cars of the same marque have lesser value than RHD version eg:an LHD W123 will usually be valued much less than an RHD W123
Regarding LHD vehicles are better than RHD ones,I dont believe that surmise. Your point regarding safety regulations is a valid one.But one doesnt rate a car/model based on its safety features alone,if that was so then VOLVO cars would have sold much more than its competitors!!

Would you have a full photograph of the Beetle, please, especially of the nose?

Talking of the steering orientation, I used to quite enjoy driving LHDs here. Overtaking slowcoaches trundling along in the fast lane on the right was easier in a lefty (and I'm one too myself, btw!!), transforming irritation caused by the roadhog into a pleasurable, opportunistic manoeuvre!

True that! Moreover, any management (especially marketing) guru who can accurately work out what exactly will make a vehicle sell well in our market, has surely got women all figured out well too! Any way, the performance of new Volvo passenger vehicles in our market currently notwithstanding, I can assure you that it caused me a fair amount of consternation to sell my 244 at a quarter of what an Isuzu Aska was fetching in Delhi in the late 80s! But then, I replaced it with yet another Volvo. Only, the second time around, I too now bought it used!!
