Default introduction

I am Ananth, a new member from Chennai. I am a collector of Vintage & Classic Cars. My oldest is a 1928 Essex Super Six. I have 12 cars in all. I am now building a Fiat 1100 , 1975, to Rally specs of the seventies. If any one is interested, I can give details of my cars

Welcome to Team-BHP, Ananth. We have an absolutely burgeoning Vintage car section here. I can already sense Karlosdeville & gang coming your way. Do post a detailed photoblog of your cars for everyone else to enjoy.

Please also pay a quick visit to the board rules to get familiar with our forum policies.

Welcome aboard, its always great to have people with such vast experience aboard. Do tell us more about your Essex. I remember watching one being restored in Pune, I wonder where it is today.

I assume this is your car.

karlosdeville is online now

Welcome aboard Mr. Ananth. Don't know if you remember me but I had the pleasure of visiting your home in Chennai with my brother-in-law Naresh Bangara and had the chance to view your cars. Perhaps you'll recall someone as having a couple of Packards in Hyderabad?

What are the cars added? I remember all those lovely garages you built were full then, have you had to construct a few more to house new additions?
