I believe the Buick is a roadmaster.

Tim's convertible ('65) was brought back with him from the US. Mine ('71) was brought to India by a German lady in late '71 early '72 (it was an export model special ordered for India). When she left it was auctioned thru STC (state trading corporation) and bought by my dad (circa '74).

The morning Bangalore weather is just wonderful to drive convertibles hood down. Had a large cup of coffee at home and took the Dodge for a drive towards Vidhana Soudha & Attara Kacheri, MG Road, Cubbon Road and back home.Our neighbour joined us and he had a great time watching reactions of people, on seeing the car

She is running smoother, as we put more miles on the odo

The weather has been great in Bangalore and we decided to drive to Cubbon Park. It has always been my wish to take a picture with the Band Stand and the Maharaja statue in the background.

Dad, proudly stands with the Band Stand in the background.

Beautiful shots of the car, you do find the best locations in Bangalore. But why aren't more people joining you for drives. I must say your pretty much the lone warrior. I am still hoping that we can all meet at Belgaum which is the midway between Bombay and Bangalore and then maybe drive down to Goa

They do not have Kasli to arrange drives

We did an approx. 50+ kms drive this Sunday. Drove up to MCD on New Airport Road. Had breakfast and returned home.

Grouping in front of Columbia Asia

We enjoyed the drive and the fast pace the airport road allows you to drive at. On the flyover, we could maintain 40 miles speed. We were in the left most lane so as to allow faster modern cars to overtake on the 2 lines to our right.

Cheers

Great initiative KPS, this is really a wonderful thing. We sure have some good roads / locations around Bangalore.

I think there are many guys in Bangalore, we would need some coordination. And update here would be good and then a message on the details about the drives would be good. Not every one is on TBhp. The fiat club guys can come for sure, then there are the Jeep guys and then the whole biker gang.

But what a great start. Soon will join too with you guys.

Hi! All,

Posting here because I did not find another suitable thread.

There is a large house on St. John's road Ulsoor, with a Blue color Vintage car standing in the porch. I've seen other classics - BMW e28/29, Beetle etc., also entering/ leaving this house at times.

Today, this house was all covered up with high sheets that are typically used during construction.

Any idea what cars are there and their fate with the house itself being readied for demolition.

The Black BMW e29 3 series coupe is of particular interest..

thanks

You seem to have been mistaken. The old Solar Automobiles property is under development, which about 2-3 buildings from the large house you are indicating. There is a grey 1946 Dodge, currently in the porch of that house.

For your information, the owner of that house has one of the largest collection of cars in Bangalore, mostly post-war cars.

Cheers

We had a drive on the Hosur road. Drove close to the TN Border and returned. We grouped near Sukh Sagar at Koramangala and after a quick breakfast did the drive. We had a great time discussing cars and relating stories.

The weather was just great and a slight drizzle added to the fun
