The Escalade EXT is huge. There was a blue one in Mumbai too. Awesome presence.

Also there was this RX8 nearby to give it some company.Sorry for the shabby pics, clicked with my mobile cam, you can't really shoot in the dark with these things
Such an awsome find Aravind , superb duo

I have seen the same Mazda RX8 hardly 1 month before , I just wonder it is still running on for registration plates

Hannie will be able to eplain more about that , Actually the Chemmannur guy hails from thrissur and he is currentely setteled in Calicut.

I remember that he have a Red slk/clk , hannie please correct it.

He also have an old merc in which Mr.Chemmannurs dad used to cruise around.

You indeed have a good memory.That was way back in 2005, and I was one of the organisers of the show back then .Its a shame that I don't have any of the photos with me anymore . IIRC the red SLK was a supercharged one and had Brabus wheels in chrome .

The RX8 being discussed was in bangalore a month back. Have posted pics in the bangalore thread. How come the car is not registered yet?
That "For Registerion" board was there when i spotted it almost a month back also.

Escalade looks yum but I am not very sure about the choice of colour.

Are you guys referring to the red Kl- 11 SLK? If so, that car was in coimbatore for some time. No idea where it is now.

I was not in station for a week & when came back got a bit busy, hence couldn't go out to spot the Esclade. But I got the inform that the Esclade in Calicut is not the regular one, but Esclade pick-up as in the photo. I'm in charge from today onwards to find it! Wish me good luck !

Ya, Vishnu haven't noticed it! It's because the thread is growing very fast, with less than a day a page is completed & added the new one!

Spotted an KL - 4 registration old gneration BMW(I doubt that is a 2 seater) at Mr. Akkaras house in ollur, Thrissur.

One of my friend told me that it is his new addition.

He have an Impala, morris convertible, Ford Y,mercs and some more un known cars with his normal fleet of optra and camry.

Mr. Chemmannurs SLK was sold long time back , then he had a tenpo traveller modded to Caravan which was later sold to mallu actor Prithviraj , then prithviraj sold it to some one.

His hummer which was on carnet is taken back to parent country.

Currentely he uses a Fortuner for his daily commutation. now the Caddilac has arrived for him.
