I visited the Exhibition at the turf club. Timings are from 10 AM to 8 PM, and our two t-bhpians have done a wonderful job. The selection, layout, placing of cars was superb. It was nice to see that so many enthusiasts contributed to make a lovely display.

We know most of the cars already, but I was very happy to see the 1919 Wolseley up and about, just needs to be nickel plated. The Studebaker Conestoga was a relevation, so original, even coach lined. The inner roof lining and carpets should not have been touched. Check the spotlight on the roof, sunshades and the trafficators, all period accessories which seem to have been fitted a long time ago. This could have been a genuine Shikar car. So nice.

The fellow enthusiasts cum curators, morris1948 and Amal Tanna managed this all in a very short time, maybe 2 weeks, and see how many convertibles they collected. For Cartier the curator was scouting for 18 months and "unearthed" just 2 convertibles. Ofcourse one must factor in that here no prizes are to be committed and our t-bhpian's had no agenda or axe to grind, and almost had a free hand. The "almost" will be self explanatory when one visits the show.

Please do go and see the show, add to the collection for the CM"s relief fund, see many very nice cars, and as a bonus you will meet fellow enthusiasts. Gallops serves excellent tea.

A few pictures below, I hope others will also take pictures and post.

Cheers harit

Just came back from a superbly organised exhibition and all kudos to the team behind it . Some assorted images taken and surely better ones to follow from everyone . The CM will be pleased .

A must visit for anyone who likes cars and bikes period !. Buy the tickets it's a nominal fee.

The postwar convertible line up was my favourite and an outstanding selection . The bikes which I am not a great fan of but still admire were superb.

A great effort ! Lovely and let the snaps do the talking for now . The venue was really nice with ample of parking and the entrance is the first gate that leads thru a drive way to the gallops restaurant - entrance is as soon as you enter to the right for people searching across the venue .

Some cars from familiar stables always shine . The RR line up was fab. Two lovely prewar Bentleys

Cheers

Mumbai is blessed with all its lovely collections. For people like us in Bangalore, it would be a dream to see such a wonderful exhibition of Vintage Cars. The number and the quality of convertibles is outstanding .

Kasli your Stude Conestoga is and excellent candidate for Preservation Class. Any idea why "Beware" was put on the car?

From where is the EPE xxx registration on the Wolseley from?

Thank Harit and Kasli for the pictures. I am hoping to see more.

Cheers

Really nice display of very nice cars. I see my friend's 1949 Caddi coupe deVille convertible out there too.

Kasli, good to see your Stude Conestoga Wagon. What happened to the Hella/Bosch foglamp mounted on the front bumper

This event , for the drought affected people of Maharashtra, is laudable. Apart from charging the public, if participants were also asked to pay and display their cars like the Delhi auto show, more money could have been collected, and participants would have got the 80G certificate or its equivalent . Hats off to the RWITC, WIAA and VCCCI for coming up with this idea.

A car that always takes my breath away any and everytime I see it - P2 Gurney Nutting.

The wonderful display from a top view and the beautiful line up of convertibles.
