Default Autofest City News - March 2009

Dear Patrons, friends & well-wishers,

Here we have for you the next issue of Autofest City’s ‘Workshop Workaholics’. Here is the link : V8-I3 Mar 2009.pdf - File Shared from Box.net - Free Online File Storage

The month of March was very interesting at Autofest City – we added new cars to the collection and a new patron, Mrs. Victoria Blaisdell of London, U.K.

Victoria was very kind to help us add a limited edition scale model which was long-gone from store shelves around the world. The unit we acquired is probably the last brand new unit around! Our sincere thanks also go to Patron Rudi Weinreich of London and Patron Detlev Kuebler of Kirchheimbolanden, Germany, for their whole-hearted assistance.

We hope you enjoy reading this issue!

Best regards,
Neil D’Costa.

WOW. Congratulations Cyrus. How does you think the Autoart quality compares to Maisto and the other brands? Do you plan to switch to Autoart/Kyosho from now on?

Rightly said - Autoart quality is slightly different as compared to Maisto plus colours are better. They are indeed very expensive as i just have one Autoart Mad Max Interceptor and it costed me way over 5K. Thats quite a lot.

BTW does anyone know the way to Autofest Coty in Mysore. I would be in Bangalore next weekend and would love to check out on the place. Its a damn neat exhibition of scale model cars.
