Standard 8 Gone to Ground

Buried Treasure in India

This Standard 8 will not be restored!

No, your eyes are not deceiving you - the unfortunate car appears to be a Postwar Standard 8 Drophead Coupe or Tourer. Its in the ground up to its axles and above. Not a pretty end for such a pretty car - don't try to save this one. I think we can say this one won't be at the 70th Anniversary Rally

Here are two more shots below, the engine is still intact
