[quote=V-16;542185]Am I sounding too Greedy?? Who cares
The dark green MMB something was owned by our VCCCI president sometime ago and was done up at Speedy's place at worli, if its the same car. Right Speedy? ITs a 250s or a 280s, i think it was a 250s RHD, floor shift every thing manual and was not in good shape when it came to them. Got sold a few years ago

yes you are right the car was done at my place and i have personally used the car for a week to see if everything was alright. it was a 280s. brilliant car to drive no noise just glided through the streets what memories. i had even offered to buy the car but ego you know. he then took the car to his place and it just stood their and his man friday would drive the car like a mad man and it got sold then i did not bother about the car. even the chrysler airflow and many of his cars would stand at my place.the chrysler airflow stood at my place for quite a while before our dear friend bought it. that too was not given to me for ego issues.

Now lets get back to topic before Gogi gives up posting about his restorations altogether!

our dear old fang as he is loveingly called. even he would bring his cars to my place to get done. his morris, kingsway, newyorker. always with a smoke in his mouth his torch and his baton. what fun it was sitting in the garage with him and he telling me his stories.

Thanks bro. That was a treat to the eyes. An immaculate 1971-73 by the looks of it. Needless to say I will ask the obvious... "Kitne ka?"

Wow I can see it in the pic. Must be a 220s/se or a 230s/se maybe 300se/sel. If im not wrong the 250 was made in 111 only in a coupe /convertible, but am not sure.
Is that a studebaker in the orange and black?

bhai now i am convinced you cut short your meeting to see the pictures . this is not the 250 i was talking about. the 250 is the same shape as the 200d 115. this is the fintail 220s. the daimler is behind it and on the right is the studebaker president and in blue is the belair.
