Just thought of forwarding you these interesting but sad pics. of what looks like a Standard flying 8 or 9 (donno exactly which one, hence I'm sending them to you for clarification) that was sent to me by my friend Karl Bhote from Pune, India.....Karl found this car among at least a dozen various classic cars sitting for years in an open space.....they're owned by a rich 'collector' who has been collecting various classics but never takes care of them!
Most of these cars have been sitting neglected, as this one, for at least 15 years and so are apparently beyond restoration! The owner is also not willing to sell any of them & its a pity because I reckon that Standards this old have to be truly rare (at least in India!) & its a pity that this one is to simply rust in peace!
Anyway, please feel free to upload these pics. in your website if they could make for interesting viewing!
Hoping to hear from you,
Hi Shyam, Hello Karl.
Its a 1945 -
Thanks for your interest
If anyone would like to try to save this car, I can give you Karl's contact details. They are firstname.lastname@example.org),
