Found this 1982 Toyota Corolla in Bangalore while browsing Cars24. And it's up for sale.

I pass through this road daily while going to my office. I think this was used as a Caravan for outdoor film shootings and I started seeing this Fiat Ducato once the LockDown started and the shootings were cancelled.

I saw a something similar in BBT website, don't know if this is the same one.

There is a Marriage Hall opposite to this place, I will check with the watchman, to whom this belongs to.

Update: Hi guys, this motor home is now up and running and is no more abandoned! Now the place where it stood is empty

Sad to see scavenging on such pieces of art. Even more disheartening when its from a police yard.

I have always wondered specially for the cars/bikes which are seized by police and impounded in their yard, how do people scavenge parts from such vehicles which are at the Police station or in its close vicinity. Hard to believe such a theft right under the nose.

I had an eye for a few superbikes specifically an R1 near majestic area police yard Bengaluru. Not sure if its still there, this was years ago.

The biggest crooks are the police themselves in such cases. They call up all used dealers, their known mechanics to salvage parts for a price. God forbid if your personal car is impounded by the police, these vultures will cannabalize it before you know.

An abandoned C219 CLS63 AMG. Presumably, seized by the Mumbai customs department.

Nissan Skykine 2.0 sGLi rotting in Hyderabad. Pains me to see such rare cars rotting. I sincerely hope someone can revive this gem.

Looks more or less like an impound lot. If so most of the cars appear to be looted in some form of the other, such as the missing rear light of the Aston martin to many vehicles missing their interior trim and equipment.

Wonder why the bank didn't auction them off! Probably caught in some red-tapism. Sad to see some nice cars being vandalised like this. The word is that the lady is back in business and has a much better collection in Chennai. Really hope those cars won't suffer the same way.
