Pavan, Yep that's the place. I need to check it out with Keith. He loves his beetles so don't know why they've been seen abandoned outside.

They are NOT abandoned - simply parked outside his house and in regular use. Bombay weather and space constraints can be cruel though.

I love the oval too! BTW, wasn't this the same car that once was unfortunately the victim of a falling coconut (had a dent on it's bonnet I remember)?

Manish that tangerine/red bug was a ground up done in front of my eyes she was sold and is not in the same color anymore. She is now two tone and in Pune.

The owner had flown to the US and got down the enkie rims you see/trim set/chrome/dual carb/lighting/biddings - glass included/suspension bits/ and host of parts. She had Recaro seats - reconditioned to leather, an AC, free flow and was one heck of bug. This is a classic all out resto job and deserves the premuim dollar she recieved when sold unlike some of the bugs which are what we call "thuk patti" with owner walking/yapping (read talking their mouths off) around thinking they have the moon in theri garage
