This was my first time at the Cartier event, and I found it to be great experience, met so many friends and some great enthusiasts.

The ambiance was great, weather was perfect, display was great and the cars were awesome, some great cars which we would not get to see. Most of the cars were in great great shape and that is an inspiration to budding enthusiasts.

I have over 300 pictures but sharing just three, as most have been shared by Karl and Pavan.

This was the most beautiful machine IMHO.

The Steyr has what is popularity called a Fat man steering, its not an adjustable steering. It basically swings out for ease of entry and exit from the car.

There are two threads on this topic, one being closed. A request to the moderators to merge both please?

Otherwise posts on the earlier thread will vanish into obscurity and I am sure that is not the intention behind starting the second thread and closing the first

Hi Bulldogji,

Whenever there is a detailed post event report - as this wonderful one created by Karl - it's always released in a new thread (with the older one closed). This has been the case for all events, not just classic cars. To give you some examples, the Mumbai Supercar Parade (PICS & Report : Mumbai Supercar Show, January 2015), India Bike Week (Report & Pics: India Bike Week 2015 @ Goa), Bangalore Annual OTR (Report & Pics: Bangalore Annual OTR, 2015), Valley Run Drag Races (Report & Pics: The 2015 Valley Run Drag Races) etc. You will remember that the 21 Gun Salute Rally Report also had its own thread (Report & Pics: 21 Gun Salute Vintage Car Rally, Feb 2015).

Reasons:

- More enthusiasts will catch the report when its on the 1st page of a thread (rather than being buried on the 4th page of a 10 page thread). If you ask me to put a number to it, I'll say 10x the number of petrol-heads will enjoy the report if it's as a new thread.

- A lot of BHPians & guests only check new threads on the forum (i.e. the 'new topics' search function on our navbar). Thus, they won't even know that the report has indeed been uploaded.
