Default Autofest City News - June 2008

Dear Patrons, friends & well-wishers,

We are very late this month. But it was due to our hectic schedules that Clyde and I could not actually get together to finalize this issue. Better late than never – here is the link:

Autofest City is in the Limca Book of Records for the third consecutive year. And this year has a reason to celebrate.

We will not keep you waiting any longer!

Best regards,

12 pounds. I paid a whopping freight to import it ! More than the cost of the car. But when you cant have the real one, the next best is a scale model !! But my real 1938 170V which is under restoration is very close except that it is a sedan and not a roadster.

Thanks Cyrus ! If one cant get the real one, the next best is a scale model ! I am sure you will agree ,especially when you have seen the 1 : 5. Scale. The 1 : 18 looks puny next to it.
