Wow, still looks quite "virgin" bodily atleast, for the Bombay climate!

'looks like a freshly done up project abandoned at the last stage! Temporarily I hope!

What's that opening on the rear side wing I wonder? An LPG connection?

Sure. Note if you will btw, that it's been fitted with Gazel rims. Many people cant tell the difference!

'just found this rather uh- interesting webpage on the Standard Gazel in an italian site that seems to be centered around poking fun at what were seen as really unappealing cars from around the world. No need to mention where they got all those pics. from!

STANDARD GAZEL | AUTO di MERDA .it

You can understand better what is said here (including the word "Merda"), by google language tools translation, unless you know Italian.

The captions on the slides are unsettling to say the least!

Other 'Indian' cars like the 800 (thankfully not the SS80!), Indica and Nano also are put up in other pages here.

I have been seeing this Standard since the last 5/6 weeks or so. Last Sunday I passed by with a Camers, and she was gone from that place! Hopefully to be fitted up, not to be scrapped.

This is extremely cheap and irresponsible behaviour.

The website obviously...who gave them permission to use these pics? Shyam's innocent
A lot of these pics have been "borrowed" from the web, and I'm sure from TBHP as well. Yes, the pics are not copyrighted, but this is a cause for concern. Yes, some of the captions are quite unsettling. A family posing with their Gazel is captioned as "Addams family"...this is not done, IMHO!

Who, according to you, *provided* them the photos?? Who gets to anyway nowadays, what with stuff on the www being so freely accessible?!

As a saying here goes "Phukat (free) mei mil gaya so apna-ich hai!"

Indeed. Even if it were a satirical site, out of decency, they should've refrained from putting up pics. of cars with the families in them (that pic. below the slideshow is of my sis posing with our Dad's gazel when it was bought in 1981 btw) and posting dumb, lewd captions even for those to boot!
But what could be done now? Would imploring them to take atleast those images off help I wonder?

Stanher! Feel disturbed by observing what posting of pictures can lead to on the web? I am sure the teambhp Mods based preferably in the U.S. can give an advocate's notice to the website and shake the hell out of them.
The cause of action as per the extant laws are applicable to all places where the website is accessible in the world. And U.S. laws on copyright infringement are very stringent. So teambhp can even demand damages to the extent of a few hundred thousand dollars as feasible through such a notice. The notice can outline a deadline by when the pictures be vanquished by the Italian website, failing which a suit for damages would be filed in a competent U.S. court of law.

Hi Harit ! the car has been moving from place to place. Last sighted a week back at the foot of Matunga Flyover (the dharavi end, adjacent to the railway workshop gate).

I've been seeing this Mk 3 Herald for years, decided to get a photo today before it disappears. Hasn't moved in years, I met the owner once. Spoke very fondly of the car, he probably bought it new.

Very interesting! I don't recall you telling me about this car either! What surprised me is that it looks ditto to Vrushant's mk3! Similar regn. too!

Car looks bodily decent, rare to find a mk3 that is so tidy! But doesnt seem to be running.

No more pics. of it?

I never knew Chennai was called "சென்னைchileggeèscemoன்னை" in Tamil. At least, that's what the site claims.
