Those are some beautiful rides!
Loved the Mustang and the Merc. Was it the W111?
Both cars look as if they are driven straight from the showroom!

Some of the jeeps are droolworthy!

Thanks for sharing the automotive scene, across the border.

Nice rides there. I would like to see more pix of all the rides. There is a Beetle in military green, do you have more shots of that?

Great photos, bro and thanks for posting them!

One question: Why are the number plates in different colours and with different systems of numbering? For eg., the Jeep is GLTA and there was some other car with just VV. Some had black plates , some yellow and a couple of whites.

Thanks again.

From Mohsin Ikram in Karachi, the Pioneer of the Vintage and Classic Car movement in Pakistan some info regarding this
"plates in Karachi are yellow and elsewhere are black
Islamabad has white plates and Lahore has white and green"

Thanks for sharing some hardcore Auto enthusiasts and their rides. Was it just three bikes in the show? Nice clicks by the way.
Many many more classic pictures on the way
Stay tuned

Hi Aamir,
A lovely collection of cars . Thanks again for introducing us to the drives on the other side of the border. I've been drooling over the mustangs (pic9 in post#1, 2nd pic in post#8), classic Mercs and the Chevy (Pic 2 and 7 in post#1) - my goodness its such a beauty.

The xenon head lights on chevy (in pic 2 - post#1) looks really nice IMHO.

I've seen two custom cars (one resembling an atom pic1 in post#18) and one more - pic2 in post #23. Would love to know more about the custom car scene in Pak, can you please share some more pics and info.

Used car imports are allowed in Pakistan right? That's how I guess you have so many Cadillacs, Buicks and Chevrolets. Any idea what the owners do when its time to service the cars?

These beauties were imported when they were build in the respected years, not in rescent years. ( I mean Chevrolet was imported in 1957 not today )

I think most of the parts can be procured from different countries
