what a brill site!
thanks!
but unfortunately these last 2 years receiving things like this from abroad is a bit of a problem here in India - Ive lost a lot of packages like this and dont want to take a chance any more in ordering from abroad via the net.

Unless you are looking for a source in India itself.

I got myself another Evo VIII from Kinsmart. Will post the pics soon. This makes it 3 Evos in my collection.

@Gods-envy : I remember you had asked me where you could find Evos in Bangalore. Do PM me, and i shall let you know the place. They have a few more.

Hi,
The ones I know of are:
Gift Centre. Veer Nariman Road, Fort (Flora Fountain), Mumbai 400001. Near Akbarallys / St. Thomas' Cathedral.
Prabhat Gift/Book centre. Lady Jamshedji Road, Shivaji park, Mumbai 400028. Near Shiv Sena Bhavan / Aaswad restaurant. This place is shut from 12.00 and 3.30 every afternoon.
Anyone know of any other places ?

@shankar: Nice babies man, you seem hooked on classics

@cyrus: The merc looks Natty ! I love those ramrod straight seventies / eighties lines.
