I know this car. I had asked the mechanic if he wants to sell. He said no! Didn't assign reason. :(

Wish I could take it from him and restore it back to its glory.

I think this is Jogeshwari or Goregaon. There is a garage which specialises in high end cars. There is a Jag XJ-L, W221 SClass, BMW E66 7 series and an Audi A8 too. There used to be a Bentley Flying Spur trace too. Wonder what happened to it.

Thats a nice W126 with an ugly looking body kit and whacky rear.

If anyone is interested, there are a couple of cars being scrapped at Mumbai , Kurla CSt Road.
  • a first gen BMW X5 3.0d with those amazing wheels
  • a Toyota Chaser
  • 2 E60 BMW 5 series
  • a first gen BMW X1
  • Audi Q5
  • Audi Q7 x2
  • Mitsubishi Pajero x 2

A couple of weeks ago a consulate Lexus IS had come in for scrap.

God knows, what next?

Who could possibly drive/daily drive a decent looking W126 to the mall, yet have a lack of money/taste to do something about the rear?

My guess would be that a rich guy imported the Merc back in the day and then later down the line gave it to his Son/Daughter who riced it or sold it to someone for cheap who then did the aforementioned ricing of the W126.

Yup. It's there and the garage guys don't seem to be interested in restoring it as the condition is deteriorating.

It is in Goregaon West, very close to the Prabodhan Ground in Siddharth Nagar.
