Very much counted, funkykar. See serial # 3 which is a 1927 Fiat 507.

I met Arun, how come I missed you?

The general public enjoyed interacting with the owners at UB City.

I seem to be missing 2 cars which I cannot recollect. At Bangalore we do not have the pedigree of the cars like in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata or Hyderabad. Most of the cars have come from outside the state. Doc brought in cars which were mainly open top so that people could drive and enjoy. Cheers KPS
Looking at the list, I too am missing something. No Mallya car?

Mallya cars are the privilege of Mumbai Rallies only. We have not seen cars from the Mallya stable in KVCCC rallies for quite some time now.

Cars from the Khoday's stable are also rare these days. They have closed their workshop on Brunton Road, as I understand that they are going to develop that property. I only wish Khoday cars were part of the rallies. Their 1939 Packard would have been wonderful to see.

Cheers

This car said Willy's Knight on it.

This vauxhall was quite ugly and strange. Is this how it is supposed to be?

Some pics from my end. Very similar angles to the pics which Ajmat has posted, hence posting very few, sorry if it looks repeated.

It was a very nice rally with lot of nice cars, it was very nice to meet KPS as well. Thank you sir for taking the time to show your car.

regards,

Srinand.
I do agree that impala needs some cosmetic restoration but the word "in bad state" is very harsh to use. Some of the positive points in this car which was not recognised were
1.The mechanical condition of the vehicle which did not breakdown on the road like most of the good looking cars.
2.It was the only impala in the rally.
This vehicle is under restoration with the principle " mechanicals first and other things next"
All the owners might not have enough time or resources to restore the car at a single stage as genuine restoration is a tough job. Such harsh comments will discourage owners from bringing cars to the rally. To the best of my knowledge KVCC is a car enthusiast club and not a club of elite people only.

Fully appreciate your point of view Arun and well put across. This is the right way of going about the restoration and I do hope that you will be able to complete the next stage by the time of the next major rally in 2013. Guess a proper paint job could make a huge difference

Having said that, you must be able absorb criticism without too much emotion. Sometime through third partys views, you pick up points which you would have otherwise missed, as you are normally sooo... in love with your car

Your reply shows maturity and I am sure you will understand the posts in the right spirit. As a fellow enthusiast, I wish you all the very best.

Cheers

Hi

In regards to the impala which has been spoken far and wide. What looks like a complete car. Cosmetics is subjective and secondary . Paint and all gloss is not always the outcome of ownership and practicality . An example of a regular participant of all vintage car Events in Mumbai is the BHAGAT Morris and Wolseley both are in any lay men's term Shabby but they are mechanically fit. They would point to point beat me hollow in regards to reaching the desired destination even with all my means and resources.

So let's not judge and respect the owner and the car that it came / participated and added equal glamour to the event .

Cheers

Dear Sir,

I sincerely apologize for having hurt your sentiments. It was never my intention to do so. But the car does require some cosmetic work and my comments probably are in comparison to the other cars that were present and my stupidity in saying something like what i did without much thought. I surely hope you will look past this insensitivity of mine.

Yes, this was the only impala in the rally and has magnificent presence. I completely agree with you sir that a good running car is better than a good looking one.

In fact a friend of mine and i noticed the person who was driving the car (possibly you?) after parking it closed the door with a push from about 3 inches on the driver side and the door closed with the best of noises i have ever heard from a closing door. So i presume that a lot of work is going into this car to make it as fantastic as possible in every aspect.

Sir, neither am i a member of the KVCCC or any other elite club, so i am no one to pass judgement, it was merely a statement that i made in a moment of hurry, i sincerely hope you will look past this incident as an honest mistake and not with the intention of hurting anyone. This is also a wonderful step taken by the club to showcase cars which are works in progress rather than just the completely restored ones. This makes people like me think and believe that this is not a hobby for only the rich and famous.

regards,

Srinand.

Hi,
I was a little late for the show and reached just a few minutes before the flag off. Saw the Buick at flag off.I went around the whole route with the cars and later i returned in the afternoon to the hotel but it was not there. Did it complete the rally?
Great Plymouth you have!! I saw you too but dint want to disturb. I must have taken 20 pics of it. Lovely

Thank you
