I saw this last week.

The red car next to it is a VW.

Saw this beautiful Oldsmobile very close to Candolim, on my last visit to Goa in April. This is the first time I am posting pictures here, hope they come out right.

Nice car! I suspect it was a two-tone green originally though, going by the colour coded sterring wheel/dash.

Oh dominator, I saw this car many a time while going to Calangute. Wished always that I could have photographed it. But your exquisite photos have fulfilled my wishes fully. Its parked in front of a hotel or something like that. Your photo also shows it parked in the same place where I saw it in May 2008.

It was an apartment block and I spoke to the Gurkha and checked if I could take pictures. He said, Saab has owned it for many years and it is not for sale.

This is a later Model A Ford, 1930/31. It has been maaadified or bootified. Bit there is a lot of Ford A to be seen in the grill, cowl, bumper and wheel. One could tell the owner to get new tyres as these are now availble.
