Glad I saw this thread. Really wonderful collection. The 2 cars that moved me the most are the Charger and the 73 SL. The SL warms my heart no end. Please do put up a few more pics of the same.

WOW, that is one hot collection you got there. I would give my right arm for the Charger, Supra and the SL. But then what good would it be, i wouldn't be able to drive them then. I'll take them just like that. Thank you.

But seriously, very very good collection of cars.

Asad, great collection been seeing it for a while. Say isn't that SL a RHD conversion? wipers are on the wrong side.

By the way my pal is the chairman of the Beetle Club of india had designed the A/C set up in early 80's and sent the design to VW who certified it. This setup works but only in the short term, in the medium term not really as they have fitted 10 such mods to beetles in the last 2 decades. For example to many variables if it works well in Mumbai the same setup will not work in Pune, if you get the cooling right the pickup gets severly compromised, if that is fixed there is heating despite fans so not relaible/consistant. They tried oil coolers as well. The longest fittments lasted on 2 cars with higher spec/capacity engines those too were taken out after 5 years as the exact balance could never be found. best of luck

Must say; of all the cars you have, the Charger holds a special place in your heart too!!
Loved all the cars, kept drooling over the Lotus, the Patrol and of course, the Charger.
Hope we get to see more such imports in the coming months!!

Cheers!!!
