Naguva Nayana ! Which is the american car next to the fruit seller, and again at the end of the song?

Loved remembering the landmarks of the 80s."Chit Chat", Cauvery Art Emporium, and "EGK" on MG road, Cubbon park, Fountain,and Guavas at Bangalore!

Which is the cafe?

This one's actually from the song "Jaaneman Jaaneman" from the 1976 movie "Chotti si baat"

Everybody remembers the Model A Ford registered CPV 65 from the classic 'Chalti ka naam zindagi'. Does anyone remember the sequel from the 1980s, titled Chalti ka naam Zindagi?



The car once again seems to get pride of place. However even though the same registration CPV 65 is shown, we cannot say for sure that it is the same car.

The Kishore Kumar starrer Mr. X in Bombay shows a late 1920s/early 1930s Fiat tourer registered BMW 1786 which can 'fly' thanks to a scientific invention



There are some lovely scenes of Bombay streets and traffic, and a particular chase between the Fiat and a Pontiac is not to be missed. Camera trickery was still very naive at the time.

The movie 'Aar Paar' has a BMT registered 1948 Chevrolet Fleetmaster taxi featuring throughout the movie. Towards the end there is a chase scene with a 1947/48 Buick convertible, BMZ registered, in hot pursuit.

This could very well be the Bhogilal (Not Pranlal) Car which was previously owned by Shashi Kapoor. I think it was Silver when Shashi Kapoor owned it. He must have used his own car for the shoot. He did that many times. In later films you can see him using his Pagoda top Mercedes.
