Cool Classics, Vintages anyone?

Hi everyone,

I just happened to chance upon this wonderful community. I am a 29 year old Webmaster from Nagpur. Cars are my first love (I married the second one :-) and that led to my third love, my lovely eight month old daughter!!).

I own a Maruti Zen Vxi (2006), a 1986 Premier Padmini handed down by my father, a 1986 Priya scooter (recently restored), a 1991 LML Vespa T5 (the cult scooter and one of the few original Italian breed Vespas that were sold in India) and a 1981 Luna TFR (two-tone color, under restoration)

I am a die-hard Vintage and Classic car enthusiast and you may have read one of my articles in Autocar India and Auto India magazines covering Vintage and Classic events in Nagpur and Mumbai.

I recently restored my Premier Padmini to its original glory. You can see some pictures of the finished project here.

I look forward to knowing you all at Team BHP!

- Rohit

From the restoration work on your Padmini, you sure look like an avid classic lover!! Very well mantained Padmini.

Hi Rohit,
Well, I am much older than you at over 50, and I am also into Vintage and Classics in a big way. I have a small collection of cars and will share some photos and notes from time to time. Watch this space. Need time to upload the photos. You can mail me on xoticars@yahoo.com if you like.

Hey newcoolgadgets, the Padmini looks superb, I must say. You have made just the right kind of modifications to keep the classic look while having modern gadgets too. It looks excellent.

Hi Rohit,
I am from Chennai and an architect by profession. I am a great lover and collector of Vintage and Classic cars and thought I write and say hi.
I have taken a load of pictures of cars over the years and recently uploaded the pics onto a website for the moment. I will eventually download the lot into a web page that I plan to start shortly to connect enthusiasts like you. The web page is www.zorpia.com/xoticars Let me know what you think. You can also talk to me via my email xoticars@yahoo.com
