Everytime i see this thread i go into a DEPRESSION

Through these recent years that i've been frequenting Goa, i could only see loads and loads of VW's move an inch into the ground, but the effort by the owners or the workshop guys to give it a lease of life never diminishes, but does not even collate to completion.

I have seen many many such classics dusted and gone, few in the recent months that i have come across too might face the same fate, I just wish for some divine intervention to get these beauties pass on to some deserving and caring owners for the rest of its life.

I am in queue waiting for 3 such beauties just hidden from the world.

My understanding is that this Ponton has been rescued and landed up in Delhi. So perhaps it is not standing there anymore?

Mods, sorry for cross posting but I think this Buick (Rust In Pieces... Pics of Disintegrating Classic & Vintage Cars) needs a mention here to keep the thread alive.

On some googling, I came across this beautiful picture of the Gama Pinto family from Anjuna:

The description:

A vintage picture of a car belonging to the Gama Pinto family of Anjuna along with the family members, attired in the prevailing popular fashion of the day... the period hats (including the Hindu gentlemen with his own black cap). The car is parked in front of a premier photo studio - Reis da Costa - way back more than a century ago in Mapusa, Goa. The rare black and white photograph blends two distinct aspects of Bardez; while the Gama Pinto household was prominent in Anjuna and the first one to possess a car in the village, every other newly wed couple posed proudly for their memorable wedding photograph, in the entire Bardez taluka in Goa, probably at Reis da Costa (Artista, Fotografo Premiado), in Mapusa town at that time. The coastal village of Anjuna and its beautiful beaches, of course, form the haunt of every world traveler today. The rare, beautiful picture was certainly captured by the lensman of "Reis da Costa". Pic courtesy: The Olencio Gama Pinto Family, Anjuna.

Just saw this at a garage on my way to Assagao. I guess it is a ford.

Wow a Ford Cortina, but with chopped roof. And looking a the body and tail light the vintage seems to be 62-66. I just bought a 1:18 model of the same car .

Spotted this well maintained Chrysler Valiant near Loyola High School - Margao (Goa) a couple of months back. This looked like a daily runner to me. An internet search reveals that it is a 1962-65 model.
