My father just spotted Jeremy Clarkson at Worli Sea Face, heading Southwards, with a convoy of "old cars".

Yep they are in Mumbai now and are shooting in the city for the day.

Cars - Austin, Mini, RR, Xjf, some Chevy for the camera...all old cars not the current gen.

Is it why Tim May needed an Amby for six months use in India and then for taking it to the UK. His thread link is http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/sedans...ce-please.html (Buying an Ambassador - Some advice please!)

How the devil does one relate these cars (barring JLR) to India? Including the Chevy!

Anyway, Any idea where they are headed in the 'north'?

Jaipur is sure shot on the itinerary, but what about other places?
