October has been an action-packed month - we re-launched our website on hpage.com, at times working late into the night.

Some months ago, there was an offensive website created on webs.com, our earlier website host, and the resulting court order to block that site was wrongly interpreted - the entire IP address hosting hundreds of sites from India was blocked instead. Friends in India therefore could not access our website. We waited a few months for the website to be released but unfortunately it did not.

We were also not too happy with webs.com as they had introduced advertisements on their pages which reduced the viewing area considerably.

In our hunt for a new host, we came upon hpage.com providing better facilities and a larger viewing area. So we did not just re-launch the old pages here but revamped almost every page and added a lot more. Thanks to valuable suggestions from our new friend Mr. Amar Paithankar from Pune, our website also has a whole new dimension.

Please do visit the new Autofest City website : www.autofestcityindia.hpage.com And please send us feedback.

This month we conclude introductions to our new entrants from Kevin's Hobbies, Canada. Here's our newsletter: http://[URL="http://www.box.net/shared/q1uga8kp76"]www.box.net/shared/q1uga8kp76[/url]

We wish all our friends a very happy and safe Deepavali!

Presenting, the Ford GT Concept; 1:18 by Beanstalk

One of them is an Edsel Ford Special Signature Edition. It was too carefully wrapped, hence didnt have the heart to open it fully

Beanstalk is much better than Maisto/Bburago/Hotwheels Elite, but not as good as AA or MiniC, but thats understood as its not as costly as them. But its definitely value for money. These cost me $60 a piece, and at that cost, the detailing, fit & finish is above par.
As for the tyre profile, i didnt notice anything off here, the rear ones are larger than the front & the profile on both seem to be OK to me... maybe its the pics..

@McLaren Roxx : naice..

anyways this car is known for its fuel guzzling trait so to just fill it up faster i think
