Think they bring it every year to India from there and take it back again.
I think what kasli mentioned as "TD" (Transit Document) and what sankar009 mentions as "Carnet" are one and the same - in that it allows a car registered in a country to enter another country or pass through with in a specified period of time (usually 6 months from date of entry).

Difference is "English" - TD and "French" - carnet de passage

Many here might think that he is one of the judges present at most events in India. (I hope you have a good laugh)
Looks like he made his pick; and chose wisely

Clicked this 1964 Lincoln Continental yesterday at Pune racecourse. This '64 Continental was imported to India for the Pope during his visit. Later, it was gifted to Mother Teresa. Currently the car is in immaculate condition with Mr. Ramesh Thakkar.

A 1946 Chevrolet fleetmaster that's always parked in the parking lot at woodlands hotel, Madras. I remember posting a pic of the same car years ago and someone mentioned it belonged to the late owner and is hence retained there. Good gesture but wish it got a bit more TLC - like atleast a sheltered /covered parking to begin with! The Madras coastal air is already taking its toll on the metalwork! Also original cosmetic parts for these chevys should still be available on ebay etc. and very much affordable for the owners!

I wonder what's the red stain/mark near the hood ornament. Hope it's just a stain and not an issue with the paint, considering the car recently arrived from US after undergoing restoration.

I doubt whether it is a stain at all,but looks more like the reflected image of something.

Here is a beautifully restored 1960 Citroen 2CV, from a large stable in Bangalore. From the quality of work and location, it should be easy to guess who this car belongs to

Saw this on FB, shared this to 2CV lovers around the world. Every one was in full praise. That's one hell of a job done. If by chance we have before pictures, this will add that wow what a transformation factor .

Spotted today. Not sure if it can be classified as a 'Classic' though.
