Heck, I'd make the effort to visit the show / pay 50 bucks just to drool over the classic Merc & Mustang! Nice pics, NFS...the Benz looks like its driven out of the showroom.

We frequently take part in educational expos and insist on the organisers charging an entry fee. Else, there's just too many time wasters. A token amount helps to separate the serious / enthusiasts, from the "brochure collectors" (as we call them).

Very true. Me & the kids went around the smallish place 3 times drooling over the classics.

No objection in having Rs:50 as fee, but I think a publicity effort should be free so that they get maximum publicity. Now-a-days people want to earn through whatever means possible. May be I am wrong, but this is how I felt.
Attaching some Photos from the event. All cars are of their respective owners and I am just posting it on team-bhp for everyone to see. Sorry about poor quality, I only had my cellphone to click pictures.
nice pics NFS!
i, however, got my money's worth at the track that weekend.

Thanks to my Cellphone Camera, and good to know that everyone liked the pics from the Auto Show.

The Merc from 1965 or so, has the original paint and chrome. I loved the Mustang, Jaguar and the Mr. Bean's car the Mini

All in all it was good to be part of the show, that too Free, Free, Free.

@SterlingJames: I missed the Polocup (though I got two FREE pass from the Volkswagen counter) It should have been fun. This is my second chance to visit the race track (first one was when Lewis Hamilton came). May be the next time.
