This car has been lying unused at Worli since quite a while. Its rusted through and through:( Any idea which generation of the Corolla this is?
That looks like the 4th generation Corolla, sold during the early 80s. Not sure if the car came with round headlamps though.

Found the car in Narayanguda, Hyderabad. It's been standing there from many years, rusting in the sun.
Sucks to see a W124 in this state. It is mechanically simple + robust, and is easy to keep running. But these W124s are worth just over a lakh today. And who is going to spend Mercedes-money repairing an old, worn out car that's worth as much as a used Nano?

1990 Mercedes-Benz W201 190E 2.3 (Left Hand Drive) in Kolkata. Left outside the gate of its owner's house (confirmed by the security guard). Hasn't been driven in quite a while.

Its in a much more pathetic state as i had seen it in real. Had taken a few pictures to sort out the bumper alignment of the AW11 i drive now. Owner has said that he has restoration plans in the near future and we hope it hits back on the road soon.

Saw this LHD Honda CR-X while visiting a label designers workshop/residence. Unfortunately he was out of town for some work therefore could not get details about the car.

Has anyone else noticed a dark grey Rolls Royce Silver Spirit (I think) at Juhu lane near the Renault and First Choice showroom, right in front of Jawa Motorcycle showroom? It's been gathering dust for quite some time now. Haven't been able to capture a photo. If anyone else has seen and captured it, please share!

Are you talking of this? Haven't seen it in person, received it from a friend.
Very sad state of affairs indeed.

Yes. This is the one. It's been sitting there for a long time now. And the irony is that just a 100 mtrs from that spot is Rolls Royce Navnit Motor showroom with a spanking new (previous gen) Phantom sitting on display for months. One covered in dust and the other with not a speck on it.

If I remember correctly, the same car was on sale at a pretty stiff price. Here is another one.

Yes GTO, this Silver Spur II has been on sale since the last 5 years. It was earlier parked near Kurla Weigh Bridge for a while - then moved to Juhu lane. Am sure it is awaiting major repairs, which is why its parked outside a garage. As an owner or even a dealer, I wouldn't even park any of my cars out in the open - where there are 100% chances of someone vandalizing them. The RR is going through a very bad stage at the moment - the logo is missing, someone has badly scratched the grille, one wheelcover has been taken off, kids play on the car.

Someone please rescue this car!!

Saw this BMW X5 at Andheri today in a sad state. Wonder what must have gone wrong here to abandon the car.
