Last set of pics from the collection.

I wish the Invicta would have been there on display as well. I was really looking forward to see it, but maybe next time !!

Thanks, many of these cars have not been pictured in the Auto World setting before.

Did you get any snaps of those historic pictures on the wall ? That in itself would be interesting.

I know this is sheer injustice, but I had limited time and had to reach Udaipur from Pune before nightfall that day. So even though I wanted to spend more time at Auto World, I couldn't do so. Apologies for not clicking the historic pictures, infact I forgot to take better pictures of some iconic cars, like the Lancia Di Lambda. But I will be visiting this place again, maybe a half day's trip so that I can click more pictures and know more about the history of the cars. Also hope to see the Invicta next time !

Had clicked almost all of them from the museum back in October 2013 when we drove to Ahmedabad. Here's the link in case you are interested.

Its good to see that so many of these beauties have survived due to the foresight of the collector and also that the public has access to see them. However I can't help feel that somehow many classic car enthusiasts who love driving such cars have been deprived the pleasure of owning and driving these beauties who have been locked up here. What I wouldn't do to get my hands on one of those caddys, lincolns or packards...

At the time these cars were bought, very few people wanted to drive them, even on sundays
Fuel prices had gone up, spares, even tyres were not available easily, and we had no internet to source parts.

Privy purses were abolished, thereby impoverishing our poor Maharajas,who sold them by the dozen, quite frankly those days these cars were considered as liabilities and people were eager to get rid of them.

I have my own opinion about Pranlal and his restorations and attitude,but all said and done, he must be given credit for at least ensuring that these cars were neither scrapped nor exported.

Had it not been for him, many of the cars you see in the museum would not be around.

Completely agree with you Sir, hence my statement began with a praise for the foresight of Late Mr. Bhogilal.
