Wonderful photos, thanks a lot for sharing. Having lived in Goa between 2005-07, this is really a remembrance of time gone by.

That OM truck evoked memories.
The was a construction firm with a name something like GS Khanna which did work on Nepean Sea Road, reclaiming land where the bridge is now located. Something went wrong and Mr. Khanna's assets were frozen, multiple trucks kept in a compound along with an early 1960's Chevy and a Vanguard, guarded by a watchman and police. The trucks were all purchased from Goa, Chevrolets of 1959, OM trucks, Studebaker, Isuzu etc. When they ran around they were so very battered that some had lost their roof, others their doors. And then all was left to rot and eventually scrapped. There was a huge crane which was taken away, as were the cars and road rollers.
While the work was going on, there was enough place to play for kids from surrounding buildings. Mr. Y.P. Trivedi lived nearby and arranged for a road roller to flatten a cricket pitch for us, and we also had a football field. Then we grew up and subsequently Priyadarshini park was built up at this place.

Cheers harit

That's a 1966/68 (?) Fiat 1100 R, global successor to our humble Padmini. India had quite a few of these imports.

I took the liberty of flipping Anjan's picture. Looks like "BMX-6255" maybe ?

Is this the ex-Baroda car ?
