I'm with you, guys. This is a very rare car in India, and needs to be preserved better. Can anyone prevail upon her owners / trustees to do the needful before it's too late ?

If its in the ownership of the trust, they can be least expected to care!

What an absurd thing to do indeed, leaving a perfectly good classic in the hands of a trust! :frustrated:

One elderly herald owner (from new) I know of here also said he'd do the same kind of thing with his car- I'd even posted pics. of that car earlier.

I just remembered having posted in this thread long ago! Visiting it after a long time!

Anyways, sorry it may sound a bit ...with ref. to my last post above, I'm glad to say that fortunately that car didnt end up 'trapped' by the trust but eventually in my hands! Some of you'd know that car!

Anyone know the present status of this Pontiac though?
