She's a beauty sublime and needs that for sure.Looks really excellent.Was watching the Hollywood flick "Grease" set in the late 1950's. In its first 20 minutes a beautiful, pink Studebaker Champion is shown with The Pink ladies (4 of them) driving it.

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.

Amol, your Rover looks excellent. Beauty!
I am sure Mumbai cars look quite original and are not overdone like they are in many other locales.
The natural looks add to their sheen and poise.

Thank you Anjan da!

I wish we had some more participation from the Pune Gang on this event, considering there are little or no events in Pune nowadays. Also the starting point for this event at Vashi makes it very convenient for cars from Pune to make the trip.

We hope we will see more participation from Pune in the next chapter. Will request the organizers to also organize displays in pune to make it more popular there.

The event was thoroughly enjoyable, and went off smoothly barring a couple of breakdowns. I joined in a friend's immaculate 1955 Dodge Kingsway.

Here are pictures of all the cars in attendance, in alphabetical order.

This AMC Eagle (?) was a surprise entry to me.

Austin Seven that is a regular at these events

Carwale vintage and classic car drive 2011- Vashi - Khandala-austin01.jpg

Lovely Buick cabrio, maybe '46 going by the earlier style grille?

Carwale vintage and classic car drive 2011- Vashi - Khandala-buick01.jpg

Phenomenal Caddy, impeccably restored, and Cartier prize winner. I think I missed a picture of the '54 Dodge entered with this car.

Carwale vintage and classic car drive 2011- Vashi - Khandala-caddy01.jpg

2 Fiats and a Beetle were entered by the same owner, alongwith a Jeep and Mini.

95 BMW was amongst the latest entries.

'47 (?) Dodge convertible is a rarity, and a great looker.

This Ford Mustang had participated in an event in Pune years back, I'm seeing it after a long interval.

Jeep is a new entry for me.

B-r-e-a-t-h-t-a-k-i-n-g beauties.

I was so busy shooting birds at Karnala on that day that I completely forgot about the event. It didn't even click when I saw Balila on road. :(

@ Karl : i was just so waiting for you to post.

The Mini (MRA 5174) got her final touches at our known garage just couple of days before rally.
The new entrant JEEP also belongs to Kadam's. It went from scratch to this, right in front of my eyes.
Shirke's CAMPER is awesome. I think this is the only other original piece after Inderpal Gill's in Punjab.
Where can steal those SL's?
Any intimate pics of LANCIA?

Raab Rakha.

Hi Karl,

Do you have any info on this body style? This is a first time I am seeing a Balila bodied as such.

Cheers

Its a boat tail roadster body on the standard Balila chassis. They cam ein many mles, this is a sporty one. Not that the car had much power to go fast anyway.

The other Fiat Corsa racer with Mallya is also a full boattaild specimen.

Interesting that both the Fiats are on AP plates.

There is a similar car in Calcutta that takes part in the Statesman regularly, and is bright pink in colour.

Here are some newspaper cuttings of the event.
It was great fun though 2 cars failed. Again we had sumptuous food, good beverages, and received lots of gifts.

The grapevine gave forth that the next event in Mumbai is likely to be on 4th and 5th February 2012, not within January due to genuine reasons. Await a formal announcement.

Cheers harit
