Default Vintage and Classic cars in Belgaum.

Though I have not visited Belgaum, I'm told there are still a fair amount of vintage and classic cars and bikes there, and even events happening. We can see pictures from one event here.

A treat of Vintage cars | All About Belgaum

An often discussed car that was apparently seen in Belgaum was a Porsche 356, possibly ex Sawantwadi, and seen in Gautam Sen's book, GDA registered, but probably shot in Bombay. Belgaum was known to have a large number of VWs.

Any contributions welcome.

Belgaum was teh capital of kurundwad junior and they had some nice cars at one time, mu Jag also was theirs and I had posted pics of some of their other cars too.

Would love to see pics of the Porsche in its current condition

That blue Chevy Tourer looks cool

The armoured car presence is not surprising since Belgaum had one of the biggest cantonments setup by the Brits while they were here.

To add to this thread, here's a Rust in pieces candidate:

The maroon dodge at no 8 is from my family collection. Got a best restored award at this event.

Great - were you present at the event? Could you share more pictures of the cars that came? (Or others in Belgaum).

Unfortunately I was not in town on that day. My manager had taken 3 of our cars on request of the association there. Will try and get a list of the cars that attended.

Thanks Karl for this treat. My mother is from Belgaum and once upon a time her Nanaji (my great grandfather), Mr. Nayak, used to own a fleet of such beauties. He owned some mines and also used to host Nehru & Gandhiji at his house. But all the gradeur is no more. He used to import them from abroad (UK majorly) through a dealer in Mumbai in those days.

It is from Belgaum, and had just come out of a decade or so of deep sleep. I will try uploading a clip of this machine in motion. pity it arrived to the display tent after the rally around the town was completed.
