Smile Finally, I'm a BHPian!

Hello everyone,
This September has turned out to be the best September I have had in my 'AUTO' life.

I finished restoring my Gypsy King Carb,
I bought a 1966 Standard Herald Mark II and started restoring it,
I also started restoring my grandfather's 1952 Morris Minor,
After 4 years of trying I finally got my teambhp membership approved.
And all the above happened this September.

I'm Amair, 31 years of age, from Kolkata, West Bengal. I'm fascinated by cars, antiques, gadgets, gaming and shooting. For the last four to five years I have been a avid reader of this forum. Whenever I'm confused about anything relating to automobiles Teambhp is the place I always turn to. I've been a car lover since childhood. I got this trait from my father who is a Vintage/Classic car enthusiast and have previously owned some classic and vintage cars. Namely Morris Oxford, Adler, 3 Baby Austins, and my grandfather's Morris Minor.

Finally a very big thanks to the moderators of TeamBhp for approving my membership and allowing me to be part of the Team-BHP family. I'm really looking forward to learn from the forum and contribute to it.

Regards
Amair

Welcome Amair,

You should really visit the Vintage and Classic car section.
https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vinta...lassics-india/

Guys like Karlosdeville, Julian, KPS, etc. can offer a wealth of information.

Have you finished the Standard Herald or Morris Minor yet?

I am restoring both of them. Will be getting my Standard Herald within 15 to 20 days. It was mechanically quite good when i bought it. As for the Morris Minor, Engine Overhaul is done, tinkering and paint job is ongoing. I am trying to source a few parts.

Welcome onboard Sir! Have a nice time.

We have our very own Kolkata Team-BHP chapter and we meet quite often. Please do join us, I would love to meet you.

Your garage is awesome and am sure its a cause of envy for many like us. I don't know much about classics, but your Gypsy just looks beautiful! She's very tastefully done up and I would love to have a ride.
Where was the Gypsy restored?

All the best. Plan to meet you soon.

Keep revvin'
Neel
