Intriguing! Do share some pics when you can.

I remember some little Austin similarly part of an ashram in Punjab, where the car is worshipped by devotees.

Is the Hispano that you mention the one in the Ashram in the North? If yes, did you also mean that she's now sold from there?

Hi, I purposely put the Hispano beause I could not get its status clearly. Let us see if someone has the latest status. Some said that it is there, others said that it has gone.
Do you have a pic of the Plymouth? Do I see opportunity for a new thread? Holi cars, some belonging to Godmen,God institutions and others well coloured. Bhogilgl's Chrysler Airflow will not qualify, colours to be thrown, not applied!
