Default History Of Indian Automobiles

In the year 1997 when India became independent 50 Years, there was a coverage by utoindia magazine by then editor Hormazd Sorabjee, On The History Of Indian Automobiles, that was a collectors item because it had covered Indian first automobile, automobile dealers, launch Of Maruti 800 At a price of 40000 Rs. to cars launched in India and its verdict, remember this is a time when Santro was just about launched and we had cars like Ford Escort, and others. Many many Interesting details that we all would love to read, can we source the book again, also can we get this copy if anyone of Team-bhp members have this copy do publish a scanned copy. I am sure everyone would love it.

Hi h.k.

There is already a similar thread (quite exhaustive) here where you can continue the discussion.

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/pre-w...ars-india.html

Also posting complete scanned articles wouldn't be right, though I can email you the scan if you PM me your email address.
