The Calcutta club, ( VCCI ) has a good list of sponsors, but like most clubs, judging is often questioned.

If wishes were horses, there would be no self styled experts, only enthusiasts having fun without bothering about prizes.

Wishing all participants all the best, enjoy your cars, have funand post pictures of all the cars and bikes please for those of us who cannot be present.

Thanks in advance.

It looks to be a 1940/41 Chevy sedan. But in all likelyhood it is a reference image just googled, not an actual participant.

I'm looking forward to detailed images - Prithvi, John, Shrivardhan and others, please do the honours.

I will do the honors...these are all participants.

Morris Minor, Morris 8, Fiat 128 3 door and the blue one is undoubtedly one of the worst cars in the world -- according to a British individual!

No prizes for guessing.

Default The Kolkata Statesman Vintage and Classic Car Rally, 2014.

The festivities started today! To start off, the list of the participants in this year's Rally. Tomorrow is the Main Rally. I'd rather let the photos do the talking. Till tomorrow then! Have fun, stay safe, and keep revving! God Bless.

The list has almost 175 participants, it is such an amazing thing to watch and my anxiousness is increasing to see the pictures of these beauties. I would request all of those who would be witnessing this event to get the maximum pictures that you can get of the event.

Watching these beauties live and together in these numbers is one of a dream come true moment for an automotive enthusiast.

Hey Kasli, firstly you must always credit photos you receive from others, na? Here credit may be given to Yash. But were there no other cars? Please do ask for more photos also of other cars.
From where you ask? But surely you know the answer. You always know more than we think you do.

Yes, is it not a pity that Mumbai is not included in your list? The result of jealous politics by the owner of our local club. As one can see, one does not need that organmisation under its present owner to take part in events. There are other better organised and hospitable avenues

Cheers harit

Just a quick question : I have about 158 photos. Is it possible to edit my first post to accommodate all the photos in one single post? I do not intend to break any of the Forum posting rules please. Moderators, please help.

Nice to see your entry Harit. The car looks very pleasing and well presented. Is the front bumper normally so far out? Looks a bit much.

What are the tell tale differences from 1928 - 1929 - 1930 for Model As?
