My favorite Fiats

I missed shooting a dark green 1927 tourer that is a regular entrant.

This Balilla boat tail is a recent restoration, and looked fantastic.

This Spyder is a regular entrant, and probably unique in these parts.

VCCCI Vintage Car Fiesta Mumbai - 4th March 2012-spyder01.jpg

1956/57 Elegant was a Pune car - had very seriously thought of buying it when she was offered to me.

A trio of Super Selects including Rony's pride and joy

This bright green 600 has recently been finished.

VCCCI Vintage Car Fiesta Mumbai - 4th March 2012-60001.jpg

And my pick of the show - these suprise entries that stole the show.

A pair of delightful bright red Fiat 500s - this pair has been together for decades, and though recently sold to different homes, they were restored together (in record time, and to excellent standards) and made it together for the event. Congratulations Siddharth and Viveck.

The oldest entry was a 1914 Model T, and completed the whole run.

VCCCI Vintage Car Fiesta Mumbai - 4th March 2012-t01.jpg

There were atleast 4 A Model Fords, including Bulldogji's hardtop, the Eapens' red and yellow pair, and the Pandit family's old faithful.

1933 Hudson Tourer is apparently one of its kind surviving in the world, and was recently completed.

Viveck Goenka's 1929 Mercedes Nurburg took the Concours for the vintage category - and deservedly so. She also won her class at Cartier. Immaculately presented.

Bulldogji,
Here is another one that I could pass off into the nostalgic pics thread but for the top of the ambulance visible behind the tonga!!!!!

There were 8 Rolls Royces at the event - probably a record of sorts. The 9th car was seen at judging, but I didn't see it on Sunday (Jetha's PII Continental).

Silver Ghost and Wraith from the Mallya collection.

VCCCI Vintage Car Fiesta Mumbai - 4th March 2012-ghost03.jpg

All in all a very enjoyable event. Looking forward to next year. It was announced that the next event would be Jan 27th, and entries would close by the 15th of Jan.

Happy motoring!
