Hey! those are some nice cars. But the pics would have been better if u took the cars only(without someone blocking a car in every pic). These pics would be more suitable for orkut, Than for an auto forum.

Well, the cars are not totally visible as JayD pointed out. Can you please arrange to have the pics at all possible profiles. Nice collection though!

Great cars there. We really need clearer pictures though...this way you are only dangling a carrot

The Auburn (BLB 1818), white Jag and red SS are regularly seen at the Statesman rallies. The SS (predecessor to Jaguar) is a very early car, and am sure extermely rare.



Here are some factory photos of a similar car.





Would love to see more pics of the Model T abnd Rolls. Around how many cars are in the collection presently?

Sorry guys, My uncle was out of town and the garage was locked so could not get the right pictures. Currently there are 7 cars in the collection, Ford T, Rolls, SS, Auburn, MG, Fiat, Buick V8. I am hopping to have some better pictures soon. Will update then.

hey ritayan, some nice cars owned by your uncle there. but like pointed out by everyone they have been blocked and are not clear. the SS is a gorgeous car but absolutly no leg room inside.
PS - if the garage is locked how come the dogs(labrador and great dane) got in ?? dont tell me your uncle leaves the dogs inside when he goes for his trips, thats pure cruelty.

@ karl i have an ss standing for work at my place.
