thanks! thats exactly all that it is! and not even criticism per se, mere observations on looking at the photos. at the end of the day its for the owner to decide what he wants on the car, or not.
but when a car is displayed in public such observations WILL be made, on any car.
as for positives, that steering wheel and its controls are beautifully made, no mean feat.

Dear John,

Thank you very much for the pictures. Such lovely cars in great condition.

The 1929 Buick looks awesome and restoration of the body, paint job and chrome makes the presence of the car felt. The meters as pointed out earlier looks very different. Any idea as to why the ones on the car prior restoration were changed, as they seem to have a character of their own.

Cheers

The Jag SS 1 Tourer looks just awsome, such a well done restoration.

Thanks John for taking the trouble to upload these pictures.

That's quite an impressive display of Rollers! Thanks for sharing. How many cars in total were displayed? Any new entrants? Besides the Buick ofcourse.

Both the 48 and 49 Buicks look stunning. The paint jobs are superb....quality of painting has really hit the international level in India now.

The great Kolkata cars are back again in 2012.Their upkeep and originality is among the best in India. No job is overdone. I reminisce my presence at The 2011 Statesman rally in January where most of these great cars were also present..
Thanks John, Prithvi and other fellow members for making the event details available to us on our armchairs right here !!
