Lot of cars have missing parts/engine etc. Some of the owners wanted to start the project, dump the cars here and then disappeared! Some have just sent the car there and we have to guess who has sent it!

It is easy for one to make a judgment sitting on a high horse but our family has known Mr. Sripathy for more than 30 years and we have the highest regard for him. His genius was witnessed in the ground up restoration of the 1903-4 Renault now in Dharmastala. He is the main advisor to the Dharmastala Garage and even the Dharmaadhikari has high regard for Mr. Sripathy. Let us not fault him as he works with very limited resources. He is doing a great job on my Plymouth.

Thanks and hopefully we will not have any more personal attacks on any one person. Appreciate restraint.

Cheers

Sir,

With due respects to you. I beg to differ on your views.

Not making a personal attack, but letting the actual truth out. Sripathy was working under my mechanics DAD, Earlier sripathy was only known to make film projector tins.

He was good in his heydays, but he learnt working on these old cars under someone, and that someone is an old gentleman who also know the Dharmasthala Dharmaadhikaari very well since he was the one who used to take care of few cars at Dharmasthala.

I myself have witnessed few cars come and go from Dharmasthala at the workshop. A few BHP'ians also know about this.

Happy that your cars have received a neat treatment under his hands, and few cars which Sripathy claims as his is a BIG LIE.

Hey Pavan.

Its obvious you are not vey enamoured with this guy, maybe you have your reasons, but when this someone repeatedy requesting you to refrain from posting negetive comments and you keep them coming like there is no tomorrow !

Lets us discuss cars here not people. I am sure there are plenty of web forums that deal exclusively with people bashing but as far as I can see this forum is for discussions on cars, period.

Lets put his behind us and move ahead. You and the other parties are entitled to an opinion but to keep stessing on it on and on is not very interesting to read.

I remember seeing a lot of these in Libya, when I lived there in 1997. One filipino guy had a metallic blue one that he always used to drive around stuffed with people (maybe carpooling) Then I heard that one day it was stolen (common over there!)

Paint this car in a nice metallic blue (like a 70's Ford) and its got all the potential to be a eye catcher, just look at all the vents and other miscellaneous stuff on the Bonnet. A great starter classic! and I am sure will be a good daily driver.

There was also a dodge fluid drive in the final stages of a complete overhaul. I spotted the same car at a vintage show in bangy (with a different colour scheme tho!)
Uh, which one do you refer to as the Dodge, chetta? The last one (navy blue) in your pics.? That appears to be a Chrysler New Yorker.
Also didn't you find the Herald too there (seen in one of KPS' pics.) ?? I was told it's been scrapped a year ago. When had you been there?

You got it right - a Rover & a Chevrolet .

Another Chevrolet with a relative in UP's wild west - who has been informing me for the last 20 years he intends to restore the car.

Request MODERATORS to remove the photos posted by JayD as they include photos of cars where the owners (including us) do not want it in the public domain as of now. We will post the pictures/give details of these cars at an appropriate time. Mr. Sripathy is unhappy too as these pictures are posted without his permission.

Thanks for your understanding

Owners Do not want the cars in public domain???? What a ridiculous statement. I see that most owners havent cared for most of the cars in the above pictures! And if the cars are just lying in the open WITHOUT NUMBER PLATES, I dont see why pictures cant be here.
