I see that Bangalore is also into fun events.

There were 2 chop job cars at the event.

The Datsun and the other so called 1950 VAUXHALL SPORTS PROTOTYPE The only one in the country

In my humble opinion (IMHO), these are not what you would call chop jobs. The Vauxhall is creation, and the Datsun is modified. A chop job would mean lowering a roof, or some heavy modification.
BTW, the Vauxhall is not the only one in India, but the only one in the world.

A common mistake in India. I once approached a gentleman selling his Austin which was VERY overpriced as the individual strongly believed he was the owner of an Aston Martin

He says that there are only 3 to 4 Daimlers left in India. We all know that that is incorrect. Maybe he meant "Mysore" Daimlers, then he is closer to the numbers. Daimler was indeed a popular car in India, and there are not many early survivors, but some do exist.

Hi,

As mentioned earlier, i got to the show at the time of the prize distribution. The datsun was given the best modified car award and the best car of the show went to the vauxhall from what i heard while looking at the cars, subject to correction if wrong.

The Herald must have left by the time i got there Stanher. Hence, must have missed it.

Regards,

Srinand.

Great looking CB750. I have been hunting for one from the last couple of years. Any idea if there are any available for sale in and around Bangalore?

CB 750F was definitely available for sale with a dealer, the bike was in tatty condition. There is a perpendicular lane going opposite KR puram railway station, the first left turn on that lane and on left is the dealer.

I too was there, have posted picture of Willys MB and of the Fiat 1100 Elegent. Rest would take time to upload.

By the way can someone give update on the BVG, never heard of them before. We know KVCCC, the fiat, the beetle , the jawa the scooter group but this I am hearing for the first time.
