There was a time, I used to be hot...


This is a Premier Padmini. This is the name under which Fiat cars were sold in India till the Indian market opened up and hundreds of new models came to India. The market share of Ambassador (Morris Oxford) and this car slipped very quickly and forced Premier Autoimobiles India to stop producing this car. Now their plant in Kurla, Mumbai is also shut down. There was a time when the buyers would wait for months after booking this car but now this car is waiting to be salvaged in the form of a Taxi or be scrapped

That's a fun shot but I particularly like the portraits that you do. 'All for a view' was also pretty spectacular !

What a cute car. I remember my dad had a Morris Oxford when I was a little girl - it's so nice to see old fashioned 'curvy' cars!

It's nice to have choices, but it still seems kinda sad about this car.

I really like the low angle that you shot it from.

It's amazing how past and present are combined.
