Nice snaps anyways for records

Cheers
To add in the same

The Chrysler is beyond help and deteriorated much more and today more of a parts car. The CITROËN looks like a time capsule preserved car . Some history on it . RILEY currently scratching my head to co relate then shall update . Last Mercedes's looks like the four door converted o two and currently ivory in colour in delhi I think or white with spoke wheels .

This is not from Haathi mere Saathi but Jewel Thief (Dev Anand makes it obvious! ), in the song Yeh dil na hota bechara:



Incidentally this car's owned by our harit now!

That is a late 1930's Ford V8 and is in excellent condition.

Yes this is a 1936 V8 Ford which originally came to Bangalore from Gordon Woodroffe, Chennai in the 1990's.

In fact this car is advertised for sale in the latest Auto India by the current owner. The car is in excellent condition and is a superb driver.

Here is a better picture of the car taken from one of the previous posts

It was a one owner car

What is the bet Wasif? I know the past two owners of this car, both are KVCCC members. The current owner was a KVCCC member at one time. This car has been in Bangalore for some time. Originally sympathetically restored by Mr. Sripathi. The current owner has restored it fully.

These are part of the Capt Pestonjee collection, at one time there were close to 150 cars and a nice collection of carriages parked at this location before they were moved to Abids !

The Jag is a Mark 7 and belongs to the owner of the property who is a lawyer !

How many cars are there now?

There was a huge Daimler there at one time with the entire body collapsed is it still around ?

Spotted a very beautiful white Morris Minor 1000 Traveller (GDA-regd) and a green 4-door at the parking lot opposite the VW showroom on Pashan Road in Pune. Both cars seem to be recently (and very well) restored. Got a poor pic of the 1000 last night. Will get more today. Does anyone know these cars?

Cheers,
Rahul

The white traveller belongs to the owner of the showroom, along with some more cars. You can see it here.

The green car you saw was probably a 2 door convertible, also belonging to him. Both are lovely cars.
