Indeed. Incidentally, someone I remember had posted pics. of this very car earlier- it was affected by the Bombay floods and hadn't moved from that spot since. Eerie!

It was me. I remember this car since it was in use. However since 2002, the car hadn't moved an inch. Now the engine, gearbox and the wheelcaps of this car are with me

No No - they take them away ONLY if the registered owner sells them. Or else they can be arrested. Besides they have to have a copy of the book / delivery note while carting them away.
Any which way, I don't think any bhangar wala will dare touch this car while Adheesh's watching .

Bhangarwallas take things for iron, copper or other metals. With the engine & transmission with me (with due permission for the heir of the car in writing) and the radiator 'gifted' only Ferrous Oxide (Read Rust) is left on the place !!
