Then lets fix a meet.
Though I am not sure whether Kiran has come back or not.I know he has an RC.
We could have had a gala meet with lot more people dropping in.
We can have a get together this weekend at some open secluded stretch of road in pune.

There is an RC Reventon available in Shoppers Stop. Also there is the usual Carerra GT, SLR and M6 Cabrio.
Edit: i am NOT buying the 1:18 Reventon. Have dropped the idea all together..Let see what else will come by next time. I MAY finally get my Elusive SUPRA now..

Default My weekly Contribution.

Here's an American Beauty from my collection !
A 1958 Pontiac Bonneville Sport Coupe.
The '58 'ville was one of GMs Golden Jubilee cars and
undoubtedly one of the flashiest of the 1950s cars.
This is a 1:18 Limited Edition by Road Signature.
Please note the real leather seats and the detailed interior.

Sorry. In between a picture of a Merc 540K got picked up from my files.
Mods, can you please delete only the odd picture of the Merc please. Thanks.

WOW!!
Thats a real beauty there.
Loved the Paint scheme on it.

Just wanted to know one thing, is the front grill supposed to be a solid piece of chrome (as shown here) ?
