Thanks for the photos Sandeep. I hear it was quite hot for a December day with the sun blaring down. Did any of the cars succumb to overheating problems?

I saw 10-15 of these beauties racing down MG Road (from Gurgaon to Delhi) early morning 0545-0600hrs on 9th.

Was wondering then, from where they are coming from and where they are upto. I was sure there is something in NCR else seeing them all running in a line that early hour of the day is a rare sight.

I missed the show but it was fun running with them a slow speed to enjoy the looks of these ancient beauties

Thanks for sharing, nice to see some pictures of the Delhi scene again. Eagerly awaiting further pictures.

I'd especially like to see more of the yellow and black Fiat if possible for reference - seems really original, barring the paint combo.

Even at around 10 also i saw a few of em. Are they a bit difficult to handle? Coz in the evening i saw one of the chevy being driven a bit erratically on the MG road.
Basically that day i travelled b/w delhi-gurgaon 4-5 times. Had given my car for servicing.

Can anyone share the history of this car? Was this used in a Driving school by any chance?
If you have any under bonnet pics showing the drive mechanism between the two columns, I'd be much obliged.

Here are some interesting period pics

Which car is the 1920s American saloon USU 249? It looks like a Model A Ford 2 door saloon, but on closer look the radiator shell could possibly imply some other make.

Also nice to see all kinds of vehicles being entered, from early tourers to large army carriers and later roadsters.

Very nice mix of cars to trucks. Did not like the chromed spokes on the Ford Truck. The dual steering was interesting.

Really like this car. This must be a 1931-32 Chrysler?
