Default Bangalore Classics

Hi! Do check out the photos of a 57 Chevy 210 in Bangalore: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintag...tml#post849476 (Rust In Pieces... Pics of Disintegrating Classic & Vintage Cars)
Good to see a thread for Bangalore, but I'm sure there are plenty more Resting classics here. Also, we need more pics of disintegrating classics. On this thread, we have plenty of pics of restored classics. I will be clicking pics of some resting classics soon, the Chevy was my first photoshoot.
Pavan, I will PM you shortly!

Dear pavan,
It isn't an Olds.It is a 1946-48 Chrysler Windsor. I'm sure because I have one of these

Default Doubt it's a Pennant

My bad...I don't think its a Pennant. But I will take some photos for you to see. I've never seen the car from up-close, but from far, it looked like a Pennant.

Default Bangalore BHPians

Any Bangalore BHPians interested in looking for and photographing classics in restored/junk state? I'm interested, but was thinking that we may be able to cover more classics if a few more of us got involved? If you come across a classic in Central B'lore, you could let me know, and I'll try and photograph it. I can also handle Shivajinagar gujiri. Similarly, you could offer to cover your own area in Bangalore. Let's see how many lost beauties we can find in our city...

Stanher, this is the car I was talking about. After going through a few threads on Standard cars, I have to say that Smsrini is right, its a Standard 10, not a Pennant. This car does not have rear fins like a Pennant. It has the rounded boot of the Dukkar Fiats and Landmaster. So its got to be a Standard 10. Photos coming soon!
There's also some interesting info about the dilapidated bungalow where this car is parked. The house was occupied by an old spinster who became a victim of "murder for gain" maybe 3 or 4 years ago. More when I can dig up the info again...

That bunglow has been sold 5 times to different people at the same time, person who owned it or tenant was murdered. Enough complications haunt that place

Hmmmm. I know were going here, but...!
I'd like to explore that bungalow sometime. 'sounds wierd it does but exploring ancient abandoned houses has also long been a passion of mine.

Just last week I had a peek into this huge, dilapidated prehistoric bungalow (must be even 100 years old- British zamana types, with elevated verandah, metal beams along the cieling etc.) in Bolaram, Secunderabad. I'd been passing by that place everyday to and from my exam centre.
Unable to resist my temptation I made bold to 'visit' it the day I finished my last exam. Its in a real mess, plaster crumbling off the roof/walls/floors, doors and windows broken and rotting, the works!
The plot where the house is located is all the more huge! I'm surprised there are no encroachments in it as yet. Or maybe its owned by the Army who used to allot these places as quarters for their officers (it does have a faded nameplate of some Major on one of its stone gate pillars)
'felt kind of sad to see it in this state. And yes, such places do feel eerie!
