Not for the price he is asking . See the roof. It has gone in and when I mentioned this to the owner he says "Usme kya hai. Do baar thokega toh upar aa jayega".

THe Buick pictures were sent to me long time ago by a restorer who at that time was asking 5,00,000. This was supposedly a scaled down price so i never showed any interest in the vehicle. Nor did i have the time to take up such a major restoration. All i was told that it was somewhere in UP. Nothing heard of this vehicle after that.

Default Hi

There was a Volvo standing besides this fiat for a long time. I used to see it regularly but one day i went & it was not there. It was a sunday and the shop behind (maybe the owners) was closed so was not able to enquire about it.

Did you guys know about it & enquire?.


There's a Crysler Valiant 160hp in one of the lanes nearby. I spoke to the owner but he didnt seem very keen about it. Its a nice example with no rust, just covered with a little dust here & there. Will post pics soon.

Well here are a couple more cars:

A Citroen 2CV Van:



And here is a car which we don't much about. It's been standing in a house in Delhi & the owner of the house stays abroad. The caretake did not allow us to remove the cover to look at the car. So the only pictures we have are with the cover on:







If you look at the pics you can make out the cycle style fenders & seems that the car is a convertible of possibly from the 1920-30's era.

That seems to be something very special indeed, low slung and sleek. Im really tempted to say Jaguar SS100 or Invicta S type...No harm in dreaming eh?
