Hi kasli, The RR of the Nizam I believe was started courtesy Diljeet, who very kindly sent his mechanic, a sikh gentleman if I recall, to Indore to assist Manvinder. Hope the Napiers are given a sympathetic restoration, not a high gloss paint job. Harit, what conflict of interest are you talking about??

Thanks. I thought that again the Rolls are being mixed up.

Do both of you mean to say that only one person started the 1912 Ghost of the Nizam? There were more mechanics involved, one from abroad and one Deshi.

Conflict of interest I see is in selecting a car for the event, restoring it, and then competing for a prize, all in the same hands.

Cheers harit

LOL..so the peremier authority on vintage cars in India and the premier restorer in India can not handle mechanical work on these cars ? How sad !

Wasif, in all fairness, it must be said that Manvinder always tells his customers that he will only restore cosmetics. He admits that mechanicals are beyond him. Therefore it is incorrect to label him a premier restorer. At best, well he does a decent metal/ paint/ detailing job. His knowledge about old cars in the country is formidable. Few know what he does. If only he would share, but then , if wishes were horses, pigs would fly.

Hi Harit

Did you manage to sort out your 50 pictures of the IARC rally. You had mentioned you would post some. Just thinking if you've done so you can post them for us to see those car.
Cheers

We see the BLB registered Model A Ford resurface, at the recent Delhi Statesman affair, albeit now in a rather loud yellow.

Sirjee, I am intrigued. Where did you get that photo from? Any more to be seen there? What was posted on t-bhp on this event is negligible.

Cheers harit

Apparently the car came from Pune. This article appeared in the Statesman paper on the 17th

Ok so yesterday I went in to my garage searching for some bike stuff and I found, among other things another Album with a few photographs of cars that took part in the VCCCI Rally of 1988, that I hadn't posted the last time. I couldn't find my Fluorescent High-lighter though ...
