The car indeed belongs to Mr. Niaz Ali. He has brought this car down from Australia. He has been setteled their for quite some time. He has previously tried to bring this car in for some other rally but thew car didn't arrieve in time. He is one of the very well know in the racing ciruits in Calcutta. He along with many other people who are car restorers and collectors now used to race every weekend on red road and paint the town red. Wanna know more ??
