Wow!!!! An absolutely fantastic collection of pictures. I was completely unaware of this event scheduled for Sunday, and the worst part is I actually live in Kalaghoda, very close to where all the action took place. Totally regretting it right now. On the other hand,had a late night out on Saturday, Tycho and Giorgio Moroder were in town aswell. Thanks to fellow bhpian Aditya for this exhaustive coverage of the event. One of my favourite Mercs being the 300 SL & the Pagoda , I've always wanted to see one in the flesh. Will have to wait another year. Also, may be team-bhp should have like a dedicated calendar page of sorts for Auto related events.

Our city and its enthusiasts deserve to see these beauties on the road and we must do what we can!
A possible reason could be shifting of the date??

I was told the drive was to happen in early November, perhaps some owners had blocked that date and could not make it in December!

Lovely cars and parade, hope it makes Mercedes India realise that there are lots of oldies who need help and guidance from the parent company,!

I can only speak from personal experience, the guys in India just do not seem interested in helping owners of older models.

Beautiful cars.
Couldn't help snickering at the registration number.

Indeed, that is something *very* ironic. A BMW registered Mercedes.

BMW would be a 1939 - 1945/46 Bombay series.
