Nice pictures and neat cars.

The Red Balilla and the Riley ragtop look new on the circuit and the Firebird ?

All cars look so well restored.

Kasli your study really looks nice

The Riley Ragtop is a Sunbeam Ragtop and thanks for the compliments on the Studebaker also . Some cars were wonderfully done

Hi,

Was on my way from Pune to Mumbai yesterday when I chanced upon these beauties. Don't know the model details though, the experts can chip in with the info.

Amol,

Great to see your car racing down the road!

I like the 40's Studebaker's for their uncommon designs. I've read that in the US they were known back then as the 'coming or going' Studebakers, since one could easily mistake the rear for the front due to similar shape and size. Thanks Maverick, great pics.

Regards
Prithvi

Dear Prithvi , thank you for the compliments. Indeed I was very happy with the trouble free performance of the car, that too after a fresh engine overhaul. She did the 200 kms through and fro without any overheating.
I have to commend Jagdish bhai for his fine efforts to get the car mechanically sound and reliable. Now I plan to get all minor pending works completed before the next rally which i think will be VCCCI. Meanwhile she will do duty as my regular car to the club and back

I have to also congratulate and thank Mr Burman of carwalle and Mr Karani of Sportscraft for putting up such a superb event, I hope it continues to grow. I hear next year they may take the cars even further (hopefully even overnight). This could turn out to be a good endurance run for the cars. I am looking forward to it.

regards Amol

I know it must be a good feeling that after spending so much money on genuine new parts on the engine, things have turned out well.

Now you have 3 classics which you can use as daily drivers
