You TBHPians are awesome. I always wonder how you guys get to spot these cars. Lately I have to started looking every shop that looks a car repair garage, to see if can spot one of these classics, without luck so far :-(.

Is there a 70s beetle available for sale?

I've been to every Pune rally since 93 and don't recall seeing it before. Perhaps I missed it.

there used to be a black morris minor that used to come for the rally cant place if it is the same car. it would generally stand outside blue diamond somewhere close to the petrol pump.
