Abhishek seems you have a nice collection of vintage and classic cars, from Studebaker to Willys, 52 caddy, mercedes 170V to name a few. Why don't you post the pictures so that we can drool over it?

the caddy ( firestarter christened by our own bhpians) is a 1952 series 62 8 cylinder car with an automatic transmission. it has a power hood power windows power seats all in working order and very much original. the car is very comfortable to drive and glides through. the car has been restored by me at my inhouse workshop.the car is originally red and very original nothing that did not come on the caddy is on her. she is 17 and a half feet long and close to six feet wide so i dont have trouble with bus guys who also think twice before messing .
the car belongs to me and it was just given for the jbl show as the main man for jbl is a close friend like a brother to me. jbl guys(sam and crew) just had graffics put onto it which does not damage the paint the rest of the equiptment was removable and not perminently fixed on to the car boot. it is not a perminent jbl show car.
please let me know if there is anything more you would like to know karl has posted pictures of my packard clipper just a few thread above
