oye ! I am confirmed at the venue more or less due to the fascination towards vintage vehicles , however Ive not seen any news / press releases of this anywhere , Is this part of the vccci vintage car fiesta 24th & 25th January 2009 ? listed on the website of vccci (there is no information of the location as far as i could see , there is an entry form in an exe format ..which doesnt work , with the virus TANATOS in it *sighs* )

One major thing about such events organised by such organizations is the SERIOUS lack of PR , they can easily have a release typed out on the web on the free pr sites and it will be picked up by google news & eventually the print media as well .

7 bentleys were driven down yesterday from Valsad to Taj Landsend Bandra. One car had some sputters in Delhi and had to be shipped back. The cars comprise of the 4.5/ 6.5 and 8 litre Bentleys. The cars would be reaching CCI club by around now that is 11.30am and would be there till 4.30pm. My Brother was with the cars from Valsad hence i know.

Speedy may I request you to take some pictures and post them here? Please try to get front and rear three quarter shots with interior and engine bays. Also details of the owners and interesting histories. I know I am asking too much but I'm sure you will try

My brother has taken many pictures of the cars. I shall ask him to Post them. Since it is open to the public i do not think the Engine bays would be open, Or the owners there. I shall try if i see someone i know.

I presume it would be at the ground behind the Tennis courts.
