JayD, I would have posted these pictures there. But as I met this gentleman and planning to meet him again, I thought it's only right to start a separate thread. I can cover all his other cars here. And if need be, we'll change this thread name to something else.

The originals (for the Indian market atleast) were convex glasses, Lucas Made in England. These appear to be more modern and powerful. Halogens perhaps? A more practical decision.

@ Rudra: Any updates on the collection? Eager to know if you could make it to see his 5 other cars and see them through the stunning photography of yours.

Unhappy A really gloomy rain washed afternoon

Around four I reached at Naveen Kumar's house to see his black beauty. He's Mr Reddy's grandson. It's been drizzling right through and not the right weather for shooting cars. But I have a responsibility, especially for Karlos and other mad fellows here.

Oh, I forgot to mention..this car is for sale. Naveen wants to lay his hand on a Landmaster. He doesn't mind an exchange too.

After Naveen's house we went to S Jayram Reddy's workshop. Another Fiat is waiting there. This is Mr Reddy's more or less regular drive so he was bit bold here. 118NE's engine/gearbox/differencial. Headlamp sourced from Amby Avigo. Car sounds sweet.

A first model M800. Mr Reddy picked it up recently and given his touch. I have seen this car before in Defence Colony area.

Well, this car doesn't feature here but I didn't want to start another thread for this.

MYB 2682 is soo good but why a modern music system fitted inside?? also chrome wheels would have been better. MYB 7333 is nice, love it.

Lovely pictures as usual Rudra. I must say the cars are stunning and very well kept. The music system in 2682 spoils it a bit, but i guess you need some entertainment. I like the idea of the modern touch to 7333. The amby headlights i must say look a bit funny but it would do. I kind of like it. The m800 also has the touch and looks brand new just like the others.

My God, Rudra.. MYB 2682 has left me stunned, and completely speechless. Thank you. Thank you.
By the way, the M 800 is something we've been discussing for a while now, on another thread. I'm sure Stanher would be happy to see her !!
