I didn't realize that the Golf had quite a following of its own! It was only after reading a thread here that I remembered about a neat Golf ( mk2?) parked away here at Mysore. Its a diesel, AFAIK and hasn't been taken out for quite a while now.
Its parked at the same garage as the Fiat that I had shared about earlier. Luckily, that post generated quite a bit of interest and subsequently the Fiat has now since been rescued by an FCB member and has found a good home.

Hope the Golf gets rescued too.

The Fiat that's found a better home.

This car is actually quite famous! I remember seeing this car on TV right from my school days and going all gaga over this Impala! It appeared in a lot of television ads and movies!

For the enthusiasts on the Forum - two sightings today (08 March 2015) of well maintained vintage vehicles. Not pictures, but videos through the dash cam.

(i) A fire fighting vehicle, presumably out on a road show. Spotted at Chanakya Puri Diplomatic Enclave.



(ii) A vintage car on the Delhi Gurgaon Expressway. I would say the car was doing good speed. Or, with the possibility of heavy rain, the owner was rushing the car home!

Its quite a long list and there are more bikes than cars. Karl, please move/delete if inappropriate.
Location: a private garage in Mysore.

Micki9559 and r_nairtvm sorry for the delay in sharing pics of the bikes you had requested. But better late than never, eh?

Just went on my Office desk after looking at such beauties ruined especially the Kawasaki GPZ 750 and the last two Honda's. I stared at those bikes for almost half an hour imagining how they might have been in their glory days

Nice Raj era picture. Bungalow occupied by a British family in Ranchi; 20th Century. Wonder what the car is, and is it still around?
A fantastic read for the historically inclined, especially the interviews.

Spotted this bug at HD showroom, Gurgaon. Going by the colour choice, possibly owned by the showroom guy. Doesn't seem to be in a running condition though.
