Default PICS : The 2013 Mangalore Vintage Car & Bike Rally

Every year on Republic Day a Vintage Car & Bike exhibition is held, followed by a small drive around town.

I've relocated back to Mangalore after spending a few years in Manipal and Udupi, and so was looking forward to go and see all the Vintage cars and bikes on display.

There was a huge number of Bikes on display by a BHPian too.

The event could have been better organised though. The whole event was held outdoors on a ground and so after an hour most cars were covered with a layer of red dust, perhaps if it were on a tarmac ground then the car owners wouldn't have to be too worried. Pity the jeep and the other open car owners.

There was no barricade or rope to keep the crowds away and the owners of the two wheeler's were having a hard time keeping the car away, as was the owner of the lone Mercedes whose Monogram was targeted by school kids every 10 minutes.

Lets start with the Presumably older cars

The driver had to keep shooing a spectator every ten mins, lest they break the monogram

Nice pics.! I'm really envious considering our R-day show here had to be cancelled due to some local political issues!

I recognise the red MYQ Herald- tis a rare early 60s Herald, was for sale a couple of years ago. Was a very original car though, with just about everything intact. While the red colour suits it (or any Herald) better, pity about the roof being taken off in order to make it look like a 'convertible'!
hope it was done only for the rally and the roof is kept preserved.

Rest of the year we don't see these cars on the road considering that it rains for almost 6 months a year. Not very nice climate for all these cars to be in.
So i doubt the roof was removed for the rally ONLY
