Ah, what a beautiful car. Love the lines. Apparently just 10 of them left.

The UK government has announced that come 18/11/2012, the annual MOT (Ministry of Transport) fitness tests for pre 1960 Classic and Historic vehicles will be abolished. The MOT tests are almost a nightmare and very high standards are set for each old vehicle to pass the test compulsorily, every year.
The official line says "to cut down red tape, that costs the motorists money with no visible significant benefits."
We in India have to produce our vintages and classics for evaluation and fitness once in five years. Even our tests reveal no tangible results especially for vintages and classics. These are maintained exclusively by their owners who always try to keep them in pristine condition.It hardly matters as these run on the roads sparingly.

This clipping appeared about a possible Hitler connection to a relatively lowly 320 Mercedes.

Read this startling piece in the paper today. What a shame.

Quote:
A US businessman driving a classic Ferrari car worth more than 20 million pounds has been involved in the world's most expensive car crashes ever.
Multi-millionaire Christopher Cox was driving the Ferrari 250 GTO with his wife Ann, who is understood to have suffered a broken leg in the accident in Central France.
Cox was taking part in the 50th anniversary tour of the Ferrari 250 GTO - an Italian sports car dubbed as the 'Picasso of the motoring world.'
The Ferrari, which is one of only 39 ever built, values more than 20 million pounds, the Daily Mail reported

Quality First , the journal of the MCOC proudly includes the Morris Issis owners into the fold. There are a very few Issis' left in the UK and largely in the world.

Hi,

I came across this ad for a 101 year old rolls at the following link;

Rolls Royce Silver Ghost 1911 which comes complete with a champagne holder and picnic basket to sell for 550,000 | Mail Online

Not sure where to post it, could you please move to the appropriate thread?

regards,

Srinand.

Pictures of traffic scenes and parking lots from yesteryears ! Some Wyoming Police cars are also featured.

Those of us who believed the traffic of olden days was too good with sparse car populations everywhere need to have second thoughts.

A traffic scene from the George Washington Bridge from the 1950's. Each car is so different- it was the time when the designer was supreme. Wind tunnels,cd factor, NCAP rating, pollution standards and many more such terms were alien in the automobile lexicon.

The world's oldest Ford is set to go under the hammer, with an estimate of 300-500,000 dollars. Today's Financial Chronicle.

Media matter Beyond Borders for Vintage and Classic Cars and Bikes-ford.jpg

The much anticipated sale of the untouched Mercedes (S/SS/SSK-Type?) still with the first owners is done, and it fetched a cool 4.5 million dollars. I'm sure the new owner will be very happy with his purchase. Hindustan Times, 15th September.
