Would suggest you come to Windsor Manor as all the cars would be lined up till 10.30 am. Parking your car could be an issue. You could choose a convenient spot based on the route map posted before. Last option is to be at Gardenia around 12.30 pm to see the cars as they come in.

Thanks for the information. My son and myself are planning to be there. Keep your eyes peeled for a 5 year old kid enthusiastically pestering his slightly exasperated looking dad about the cars.

The Plymouth is getting ready for the rally. This morning we decided to grease the suspension

One the commuters on the road was concerned that the Ray Pilot Light in front was also turning and repeated pointed out that it could fall off as it appears to be loose!

title: Cars from an era when life was simple, traffic thin

A shiny grey Herald, a 1965 model, was parked in one corner of the Windsor Manor Bridge on a cloudy Sunday afternoon.

Inside the car, well-known hotelier R Kamath sat quietly observing the crowd enjoying themselves at the Annual Vintage and Classic Car Rally.

When prodded to talk about his automobile, he reminisced about the time when he first purchased the car, and when he used to drive it in a Bangalore where life was simple.

“I bought this in 1979 at a time when a car like this would cost Rs 10,000-11,000. I drove it around till 1985 when new cars from Maruti and other companies were just beginning to get popular. That was a long time ago and these days I take it out only once a month,” said Kamath.

Theme of the rally

The rally this year has been aimed at creating awareness about ‘Respect and Safety for Women’ and in a sense also tries to evoke memories of an old Bangalore where crime rate was low and there was respect for everyone, according to P A Suresh, member of the Karnataka Vintage and Classic Car Club.

“Crimes against women and children are going up with each passing day and through this rally we want to send out a message that the safety of women and children is an important issue that needs to be taken very seriously,” he said. One of the cynosures at the car rally was a bright green four-seater Lotus Elite, 1973. “This car has been restored to a great extent,” said Thomas, owner of the car and an avid car lover. “But these days it is quite tough to ride it in City’s traffic.”

Expressing his opinion on the “utilitarian concept” of cars in the present age, he said, “People today should realise that cars are not only machines with utility, but are pieces of art. This understanding will give people depth and will also be educative,” he said.

A rally of vintage cars was taken out in Bangalore by the Karnataka Vintage and Classic Car Club on Sunday to create awareness on, 'respect and safety for women. The rally covered around 5 kilometers in the city. Many women dignitaries like Indian classical danseuse Vani Ganapathy, Indian athlete Reeth Abraham, and Former Indian swimmer Nisha Millet, were present at the event. Grand old cars which were used by the Maharajas, industrialists and other noted celebrities of yesteryears were part of the drive, one of them belonging to the father of the first Indian Prime Minsiter, Jawaharlal Nehru. Lanchester, Hillman, Wolseley, Jaguars, Fords, Chevrolets, Austin's, Morris' etc, rallied in the City.

Congratulations on what must have been a fun event. The Plymouth looks superb as always, and I couldn't take my eyes off the 59 Chevy.

Having recently bought a similar car, this Hindustan 14 caught my eye. Very nicely presented, note the integrated head and parking lamps for early cars - something we learnt just the other day on the Hindustan 14 thread. Note the yellow coachlining as well - an original offering. A pair of period number plates would do the car well. My compliments to the owner.

What also caught my eye (naturally) was the very original 57 Fiat. I don't think I have seen it at FCB events before. Note the original brown coloured bakelite steering wheel and speedo console, and the ultra rare badge on the ignition switch, amongst other rare details. Very impressive!

No pictures of the bikes?

Thanks KPS for the great coverage. Also to FordDodo and Vinay Kamath

I just missed it by the proverbial wiskers - I had to leave Bangalore in the morning hours of Sunday 10th Aug.

The Cars are all looking good and a nice turn out. BTW repeating Karl's question - where are the pics of the Bikes ?

Its pity that one of the other major collector could not be pursuaded to join even this year.

KPS, the Plymouth is looking really "drool worthy" even in pictures

Best Regards & Drive Safe

Great looking beauties.
I have a Buick Riviera 1964 465 wildcat, which is getting rebuilt. I would like to know how can I participate in a car rally like this. Please let me know the formalities.
