Thanks Karl for your wonderful report.

Do you have more pictures of the 1938 Buick Century? Has a rare body style in that it is a Coupe with rumble seat.

I guess there are very few cars with this body style in India

Karl,
your query on the 54 plymouth trims .

All three participants in your picture have some incorrect trims. None of them are fully correct. This model is so simple to get parts for, the owners should , if interested, do the needful.

Thanks for the pictures, I believe you and others of the young brigade were in charge of the Poona drive this year. Participants were happy with the organisation of the event, hopefully the next will be in cooler times.

I do, will dig up and post. A similar car in similar colour too is in Delhi. They are very handsome indeed.

Thank you. If you dont mind, can you explain what should be correct for which cars? And whats the difference between Savoys and Belvederes of the same year?

I didn't do much, but yes, many of our enthusiast friends helped out tremendously. I do hope the trend continues.

Regarding next time... fingers crossed!

Great to see the dark blue 190b Ponton in it's freshly restored form. The owner spent a lot of time carefully doing up the car and took a lot of trouble to bring it back to its former glory which is truly commendable

Regards,

P
Your words are too kind. A big thanks to you again for all the help you gave.
