Is this on the National Highway Kannur~Telicherry.? It is claimed that a foreigner drove it down and the car caught fire for reasons unknown, dumped the vehicle. Most of the parts that survived the fire was looted by the local public.

Totally spoiled such a nice car. Pity that people think and act in such a weird manner.

Foby,
The last picture (of the Studebaker) is not included in the Fast Track mag article of Nov - Dec 2006. The other pictures are the same.

Could you find out when this version in The Malayala Manorama appeared ? It was probably recently - maybe in connection with the Maharaja's 90th birthday in March. Thanks
