I wasnt ever into classic cars, but after restoring my Jeep...I kinda look at them with a certain amount of respect since I now know the pains these owners go through to get them back to running/pristine condition.

This does seem to be an excellent example of the XK150. Gondal does have an enviable garage, eh?

The Royal Garages have an extensive collection of vintage and classic cars including a 1910 New Engine, a Delage and a Daimler from the 1920s, a 1935 Mercedes, 1935 Packard two-door convertible, 1941 and 1947 Cadillac, 1955 Cadillac limousine, sports cars from the 1950s and 1960s like the Mercedes 300 SL, Jaguar XK 150 and Chevrolet Camaro, numerous imposing American cars of the 1940s and 1950s, a fleet of four-wheel drive vehicles from the World War II and post-war period, and some contemporary sports cars. Most of these cars are restored and some bear the original Gondal state number plates. There are plans to restore a selection from the extensive collection of horse drawn carriages, which includes Victorian showpieces and a Shetland pony carriage.

I am the XK correspondent for the UK Jaguar Driversí Club and am in the process of researching an article about XKs in India. I hope to make a visit. Is there a Jaguar or XK specific club that I can email to make contact with Indian XK owners?

Nope, Roger, there is no Jaguar or XK-specific club in India as far as I know. However, if you let me have your email id at banerjeeprabal@hotmail.com, I can put you in touch with a few XK owners here, to start things off!

Best,

Prabal
