I want a share a secret with you AMATMO, but keep in mind that you will never speak of it anywhere. Do I have your word?

This may shock you but you have to be strong hearted. Now listen, you may have never seen them or even heard of them but there is this whole other breed of people... people who think of cars as simples means of transportation!! Relax, breathe... blow out... breath again.
Them vile creatures co-exist with us and share work and living space with us on this planet. They look like any other auto-enthusiast. They are inconspicuous and irrelevant but in great numbers. Last count there are 6.95482901 billion of them. We may think we are the only species on this earth but these uncouth, tasteless and vile creatures have numbers and money on their side.
It is sad, yes, but a fact that we have to live with while we furiously work towards our goal of out numbering these people and destroy all cars which serve as mere means of transport and inshallah one day we will only have AMG's, M sport, Porsches, Ferraris and Bentleys roaming free on our spiritual lands. Out 6 liter V12 gods are much superior to those puny infidel 2 - 3 liter V6ers gods anyway and we will win the wars. Till then, have faith brother, have faith.

Peace.

Mayavi,

Something in your post reminds me of Induhviduals in Scott Adams' newsletters.

these farmers you talk off only buy things that are known too be expensive

mohite atleast has a good bike collection so we can consider him a bike enthusiast

but the collection you mentioned above is not atall impressive

it just looks like show of money power nothing else

hmm u seem to have misunderstood me...my point was not their collection, but rather the kind of money these farmers have...this family doesn't collect cars...they collect buildings ; anyway what they are into or what they have is besides the point sorry to say it is rather impressive the kind of power and money that these people have attained whatever their means might have been, and even though i'm not a merc fan, and wished that all those S classes were 7s, all the Es were 5s...etc seeing their collection in the flesh is impressive due to their sheer numbers
and yes they are least enthusiastic about their cars, they look upon them as means of transport and symbols, and besides why invest in the fun and enjoyment of your chauffer?!? [oh i forgot they recently bought 2 helicopters i think...i've seen 1 of them, heard bout the other...]

Except for the pics of the Bentley and the 7 series, others seem to be from an Auto Show.

There is a show organised by d owner of most of these cars....
He organises a show at an entry fee of 5 rs and every year showcases newer cars.
Most of these cars are also seen on roads in Kolhapur And Jaisingpur.

.

There also is no Bmw 630 and the car with the beetle is a Rieley and not a Rolls Royce.
The modern cars and some bikes seem to be from the Kolhapur Go-karting track owners collection. They have been featured on our site before.

The superbikes were posted on this thread- http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/305607-post1.html (Sbk's, cars and other Imports in Kolhapur)

I think the lamborghini was in Goa and now Bangalore.

Congrats for starting this thread.

You said right, I too have heard from a friend that there is guy either in Kolapur or Belgaum, having a huge bunglow. There is a 6 track privet approach road to his villa & the garage is centalised with a helipad & sarrounded with lot of exotics from Beetle, Mini Cooper to Merc S (more than one),SL55,GL,ML, BMW 5,6,7, x5, Audi A8,Q7, R8, Cadillac Esclade, Lincoln Towncar (LHD), Bentlery Cont GT, FS, Arnage, RR-Phantom, Gallardo, F430, etc.

At first I thought its abroad as some of the cars are having black plate & most of them having regn no: 5555. I've seen the photo shared by my friend. But since he is sure whether the owner would mind in exposing, he didn't allow me to put the photo in the forum.
