Nice car Mehul - and nice number, 5151 !!

Saw this rather nice looking Super Select at Dadar today with Hrishikesh.
Superbly straight bodyline, marred by a bit of rust - the hallmark of average Mumbai cars. :(
Very curious 'fabricated' hub caps.
Notice the resemblance of the resgistration number to my MRX 6839 !!!

It's at Dadar west, in a lane just off the chaotic Plaza cinema junction - the lane that leads to Ranade road. The lane opposite the Loo at the foot of Tilak bridge..

Nice SS, ravi! BTW, maybe its the angle of the photo but the regn. on the front plate appears like MRH??!!

And here's a B'bay reg'd select I saw here today...any of you guys there know her? Somehow I feel she's been posted on this forum before; the colour looks familiar.

The biker on the cellphone was not posing for the pic. btw!

Yes, resemblences is there, but the Fiat here is absolutely in mint condition, the person in the pic is the first and present owner of the car. He never allows any one to drive the car,even his grand son.

The red select looks very familiar - but no chance it could've been in Bombay in the recent past..

Sherlock, is this the familiar looking car you are thinking about? This pic was posted in FCB thread.

This Select has come to Bangy from Mangy for resto-modification.
