@fx45 - I think it was RHD ( from whatever I could see ), and also as it is MH 02 reg.

Edit : It is indeed RHD - you can see the driver's hand on the steering wheel if you look closely.
Another question : Are these readily available in RHD from the company or need to be converted like all the Hummers ??

@manish : You in the Pune thread as well, time to shoot ourselves. Please keep all your pics in a safe place. Who knows someday you might get a call for a job from the DRI.

The CTS looks gorgeous. I saw a Metallic Blue (I guess) M5 today. Sweet thing she is. Also saw the car below being hauled on the expressway. I am not much of a vintage person so will let you fine gentleman decide on which car it actually is.

Hkanitkar they have been available in RHD for some years now from the factory. UK/Japan/HK/Singepore/Australia being major markets since the past 5 years from what I recall so yes they are factory orignals unlike the Europeans the wiper blades have been swithed to suite the RHD set up as well. cheers

That car looks likes a 1948-49 Buick Eight Roadmaster. At the time Buicks Flagship Model. Did'nt think there were too many of them around. I guess Karl or someone could shed more light on its history.

I've attached a foto of a car in America.

It is indeed a Buick Roadmaster. A discussion on the subject can be found here.

This particular car made an appearance on Sunday at the VCCCI event at the Trident.

What color was it? And hardtop fitted? You mean with the top up right?

YES! I was there as well. One big shot had a private party so all the Range Rovers, Bentleys and stuff was there not to forget the sweet sweet Mucrielago LP640. Ecks you're one lucky guy man I hope you realize what you have is what little kids (and some bigger kids) have dreams of.
