thats what a garage is supposed to look like!!!

I like the variation from everyday sedans to cars which paint a grin on your face.
i mean the xjs pictured here was one of the worst products in terms of overall quality ever produced by jaguar, but at the same time there is a first gen RX7 SA/FB (red) which is a great Japanese icon with its rotary engine.

My pic out of this garage would have been the R107 SL (white) or the RX7,
BTW which one is the other Mazda any spotters?

i mean sitting here in chawri bazar in Delhi, i can feel a magnetism this garage has for petroheads, i believe a roadtrip should be in order

Cheers

Thanks for sharing, mate. In one of the last few pictures of the lounge, is that a hotwheel track set or what?
My picks are the Jag,Chevy pickup(which year,anyone?) and the Willys!

Amazing Collection and well displayed.
The cars seem to be rescued in whatever condition they must have been acquired and well preserved for a possible future restoration. Real treat for the eyes to motivate oneself to get there.

Haha...No it's not a hotwheel track set. It's a RC track. The door was locked to the room, which is why the picture was taken behind it.

Default A WeekEnd at Dungarpur

I was recently called upon by Dungarpur Royal family for some techy work. I took my family along over the week end.

After my work we talked about cars and he was very happy that i was a car nut. He opened up his whole collection for me to Drool.

Have been very busy lately. So will not do a write-up as usual.So please forgive me!!

Just Enjoy the images.

Thanks for looking.

Wow! A lovely collection and you were indeed lucky for landing this great catch!

On one of the pictures (the one after the car print sofas) I think I saw a bi-plane. Could you provide any details on that?

Thanks for adding those scale model pics. Those are the ones that I missed on because I was too busy clicking the big boys All we need now is someone taking pictures of those posters/blowups on the wall and posting them here and this thread will be complete.

Any idea what was under the yellow tarp/cover? I saw it too, but there was no one there to ask about it to.

It is the exact replica of a WWI plane. That the king of Dungarpur donated to British air force. The actual image is on the poster on the wall behind the plane.

Had to do a site survey of the palace also i had to return the same day as next day was busy monday. But i will be going there often.

The princess, sister of Harshvardanji is a family friend. She was pushing me to go there since last six months.

That is a secret one being restored. Will upload the updates during the course of its restoration.
