Default PICS: Bangalore Vintage Car & Bike Show, Nov 2014

Bangalore Vintage Group held its Vintage Car & Bike show on 23rd November 2014, at the Jayamahal Palace Hotel.
It was Bangalore Vintage Group’s 5th event in its 2 years. Fellow BHPian avinashsg had visited all the previous events but for the first time, I tagged along with him.
It was a very good chance to go and check out an awesome collection of cars, motorbikes, scooters and bicycles that adorned the roads of yesteryears.
The criteria for the exhibitors was that the vehicles should be more than 25 years old

I got up early in the morning at 9AM (9AM on a Sunday is early ). I had my breakfast and headed out to the basement parking to take out my car.
But since we were going to a vintage meet, I changed my plans. I took my retro looking Vespa S to match the event!

I picked up avinashsg from his house and by 11AM, we were at the venue.
Outside the venue, many car dealers had put their stalls and exhibited their latest vehicles.
We registered at the entry as visitors and bought passes at ₹100/- per head

Avinash told me that this was the first time we had to buy tickets and earlier it was a free entry.
Later the host was saying it on the stage and we came to know that the proceeds of the event will be utilised to help poor children with kidney problems.
This was done in association with some organisation called V-care trust.

The area was demarcated with separate areas for Jeeps, Cars, Motorbikes, Scooters & Bicycles.
The host was announcing that around 300 vehicles had participated. We felt that there were only around 150.

There was a band on the stage and a DJ playing some music. This was when the host was not talking; but very few were interested in that at that time.

Apart from the vehicles, I found an equal number of DSLRs on that day taking pictures from every possible angle. We started with it too
It was nice to see a couple of TV channels also covering the event...except that they were coming behind me everywhere and not letting me take photographs in peace!

4 Wheelers that I saw there included:
  • An Austin
  • a Couple of Fiats
  • an Ambassador
  • a Humber
  • A white Beetle
  • a Blue Mini Cooper
  • one blue Standard 10
  • a dodge with its Original paint
  • Some 5 Mercedes Benz
  • A Willys among some 4 Jeeps
  • Couple of Contessas of which one was heavily modded
  • A M800 (I couldn't agree, but Yes, its a Vintage now)
  • A BMW Z3 was also there but I don't know how and why it was there

Motorbikes that I saw included
  • Norton
  • BSA
  • Ariel
  • Triumph
  • RD 350's
  • RE's
  • Jawa's
  • A Honda CB400

Scooters exhibited were:
  • Lambrettas
  • Many Vespas
  • Suvega
  • Vijay

Among many Bicycles a Foldable Bicycle caught everyone's eyes

Many Clubs had joined the event too. Out of those I can recall:
  • Bangalore Classic Scooter Club.
  • Bangalore Rd350 Club.
  • Bangalore Motorcycle Club
  • FIAT 1100 Club – Bangalore [FCB].
  • NH4 motorheads

Ok that's about it, Let the pictures start. First' I'll post pictures from my camera followed by pictures taken by avinashsg
Enjoy your ride back into the bygone era!

After we finished and when we were about to head out, we saw a couple of caricature artists. So we decided to get ourselves a caricature done. This is what he made

It was around 1:30PM when we left the place.
After a nice delicious lunch at a restaurant we returned back home to the present age. All in all it was a Sunday well spent.

This group has all the fancy things except for real Vintage stuff. Organised by some Offroading and Bullet freaks, it's all glamour and nothing else..

Music Bands, food counter, sketching, selfie contests were the highlights of the event. People mistakenly think this is KVCCC meet and attend, only to realize its a mixed event.

Looks like a CB400SF and I don't think it belongs to this show.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks for sharing Hemanth.

Looking at the Java bike, my nostalgic feelings were rekindled. My father had a Java in 70's and 80's. He used to take care of it like a child. He was good in mechanics and use to maintain the bike himself. I remember driving on the tank top with the high speed engine humming. It was bliss.
