Was at the BP petrol station on Pedder Road for some repair work.

Here's a Ford Capri (looks like a Mk. 2) spotted in Bangalore. Pics received from acquaintances.

Wow, look time no see. This used to be deep metallic green in colour. Car is a US Spec judging by the bumpers!

Would you happen to have any pics of it in its previous green avatar?
Also my first guess was that the bumpers were of a US-spec car, but this one was RHD.

Also, US cars were sold as Mercury Capris and didn't have the 'Ford' badge on the front, but rather just 'Capri', so I'm not 100% sure where this one is from.

I love the Capri. I had one, but those American bumpers are awful!

Sorry, no pics, am talking around 1988 when you thought twice about the cost of a roll when taking a pic! While it is RHD, the wipers are set up for LHD so it has been converted at some point.

Here are some more from this month

Nice Golf 2 - obviously between 1984-1988

Honda Civic Series 2 - simple and classic- shame about the after market alloys

A very rare Renault 30TX from DBHPians NikhilB's Facebook post

This was a top model. They used to rust and were not so reliable so very few survive globally.Apart from the rarity and the soft ride, dont really understand how it landed in India a time when getting spares would be tough for obscure vehicles.

It belongs to a big planter on Cunningham Road, this car is actually silver but looks white in the pic unless it was resprayed later in life or it was another identical car.

Here are some traffic-free pics of the same vehicles:
Golf Mk. 2

Land Rover Series 2. This was previously an olive drab-coloured station wagon, posted earlier on a thread here. The body was then modified and repainted, and now its in its current Volvo Polestar-like blue colour:

Pics received from a friend of this Dodge Dart in Bangalore, presumably a '68 model. Would be great if anyone knows the story behind this.
