Cyrus,
That is a 1954 Pontiac (i am told) and is owned by a friend's family and has been garaged for a long time now.
Cheers

Wow, lovely car Cy!
Good to know that someone still has it preserved, although I hope it sees daylight soon!

Whats the story behind this one?

And what were you doing in Shimla if I might ask? Holidaying?

Too bad. Instead of it letting it rot like this, they might as well sell it to somebody who will cherish it.

Least they can do is clean her up and store her properly, to arrest further deterioration.

@Jaggu - That will not help. As long as it is standing still it will continue to deteriorate. A car needs to used to prevent that happening.
