If it was worth that price then it would have been sold long time back.

Got an email from Vintageman, who is presently sailing somewhere. Like is said that a car Keeda is a car Keeda. He has taken some pics in the area mentioned below and had requested that I put the pics on the forum from his side as he wanted to share these pics with all of us. Thanks for the lovely pics Vintageman.

I quote from his email,

....."I do not have access to the net , so have been missing from the forum . Attached
please find photographs of some cars I came across at Punta Arenas , Chile ( The
metropolis closest to Antartica ). I never knew there was a marque called
"Martini" , I always thought it was something the wimps drank or mixed in a
cocktail .
Can you put them on the forum.
I guess Ram , Karl & Speedy will have a field day inputting on this one....."



















A little info from my side.

Martini cars/Switzerland (1897-1934)
This famous armaments factory also made stationary engines and in 1897 built a rear engined twin cylinder car with tube injection. Front engined cars on th elines of Panhard were made in 1899. IN 1914 came the 2614cc 12cv sport which had a OHV engines with four valves per cyl in hemispherical heads. The frim was bought by a Swis engineer, Steiger who developed the 3.1ltr six in 1926. Total cars produced by Martini were around 2000 cars. Needless to say Vintageman has found something very rare.
The one next to it looks like a Ford T.

wow this is a feild day for me. thank you vintageman for thinking of us and thank you gogi bhai for posting the pictures.
what a rare find. i had only heard of the martini and seen pictures on the net. now i get to see one that is surviving. the other car next to the martini is a ford model T like gogi bhai pointed out. the third car is a doctors coupe and looks like an international 1910 cant get the model no j30 was a tourer. the grill looks very familiar.
