N_C I didn't have enough to take a hotel. Sleeping inside the car is not that great.

Out of focus background is due to 200mm focal length lens. It was on Bangalore-Chennai highway, near Kolar.

I have not tried Avigo. They've tried something but looks half hearted to me.

Art leather called Bilbo. Don't know if this is still there in the market. Didn't have money for leather.

Ok ok... i have been fired by Rudra for not posting my comments... but a phone conversation later everything is settled... i hope.

Rudra... this car just reminds me of one song.... "born to be wild". I have to say with great respect, this is the best amby i have ever seen in my 22 years on mother earth. The detailing is evident.... it in one line can be termed... "Subtle yet smart". Even if you were to go to a party where the lowest price car is an S-class, trust me, you really wouldn't feel outta place. The way it has been done is nothing short of what i've always had in my mind to do if i had a classic black car.... sadly the finance part currently doesn't let me indulge into my plans just yet.

As dippy and addy have already pointed out, this car alone beckons us to take a trip down-south to Bangalore.

Hats off to the greatest car restorer! Hats off to the greatest car polish master! Hats off to the greatest photographer! And hats off to the greatest teacher of life and cars... on team-bhp!

Revv

P.S. One thing is for sure... bangy boys certainly have better cars than us mumbaiites. I bow to thee.
